RE: The end for me

Our condolences for your loss. We're well aware of our inevitable fate with one partner picking up the loose ends. We hope it happens later rather than sooner. But, we don't have a great say in the process. God bless you and your family. Happy trails to your husband, the pilot.

RE: Hmm...torklift getting a little sloppy?

This is a well written and thoughtful note. I hope that Torklift finds a way to reach out and resolve these issues. I have to say that I have never experienced these issues with my Talon tie downs nor my Stable Loads. I have had some issues with my stairs and Torklift immediately took care of the problem. Their customer service is the best I have ever seen.

RE: TC on An old car

that's no more than a fat Elvis, Big Bopper and Buddy Holly in the back seat. Lets not forget Richie Valens.

RE: Another overloaded truck pic....

What I like about this is the sheer number of varieties and configurations that we have in the TC community. I'm sure that the folks who use this TC know exactly what they are doing in terms of size and comfort (and probably economics). Truck campers are the Marines of the RV world..they come in all sizes and shapes and they're determined to go where they want. And one more thing, just like Marines they're modest and unassuming. There you go...

RE: Very large 22,000lb GVWR Australian TC

Nice looking machine, Robert. I had the impression that truck campers in Australia were relatively small. This behemoth appears to be breaking the pattern. Thanks for the info.

RE: Review of my TorkLift Stow 'N Go Steps

This has got to be one of the most thoughtful and careful equipment (mod) reports I have ever seen. Just the huge photo bank is remarkable. My experience with the Glow Steps has been a bit uneven. The steps have had a tendency to seize up to such a degree that I find myself pushing them like I'm hitting a football practice sled back in high school. Jane can neither extend them nor stow them. In addition, the small wire that held them in place frayed and the steps fell down while I was underway. No real serious damage, I just took off the bottom steps....but still. We go down the road with the steps wrapped in bungees... a bit of Beverley Hillbilly. So, these look like a real improvement including the black rubber stops. Thanks for going to all the trouble to share this information.

RE: Torklift Disappoints Me

I get it about Flyfishers frustration. I've certainly been there myself, especially when taking delivery of a big ticket item and getting caught up short somehow. But, I think that Flyfisher will be very happy with his TorkLift experience overall. In my opinion Torklift is one of the best companies I have ever done business with. They give me confidence that American companies like Torklift continue to out-compete their competitors all over the world...and that's a good thing.

RE: Travel advice - quick cross country trip

Jane and I traveled from Southern Illinois to North Dakota last Fall. We were interested in the huge protests on Indian Land against an oil pipeline. We camped at the protest site and got a pretty good idea of the issues. We also visited Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and Wounded Knee. We spent time at Custer State Park, which was spectacular, as well as Mount Rushmore.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

I don't know if the majority of our leaks come from the running lights, but I'm sure that a lot of them do. By all means take Ticki's advice. Another product that is helpful is Eternabond that I use around the Fantastic roof fans and other roof mounted frames such as the solar panels.

RE: You can sell it . . . but can't get it off your mind

had the strangest dream last night. I dreamed (is that the correct word???) that I went to visit my father,(who has been dead for about 9 years)and he had an old classic Avion TC in his driveway. My sisters were trying to convince him that he was too old to travel in it, but I was on his side and told him to go for it. His last travel trailer was an Airstream so I assume that is why I had Avion on my brain. You have discovered, by way of your father, that an Avion TC is happiness. Yes. Yes. Yes. Do it.

RE: Argo goes on a trip...

Looks great! Runs great! The adventures of Argo are now being written in the Avionista Book Of Life.

RE: Old Friends

Sleepy has consistently (along with his wife) embodied the spirit of truck camping, in my opinion. Along with Jefe, Whazoo, Seldom Seen, and many others. For all those years. And yes, he's opinionated. And yes, he can go and on. But he is someone to truly learn from. I hope he's ok.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

SP, that's good work. I am especially impressed by your 300 watt solar system. I have around 200 watts and it seems that's adequate. But, an additional 100 watts would be sweet. Now we should start organizing folks for an Avionista Meet Up. Surely folks who have these machines have a lot in common.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Southedistoman, great to hear from you. Yes, its been slow on the Avion string. I have to admit I've been a bit distracted this Spring while I work through a construction project. And it looks like most of the other Avionistas are quiet, except of course for Ticki2. As to D1, I don't know. We keep sort of agreeing to meet at Muley Point. Then he upgrades his rig as if he's on the staff of Elon Musk. In the meantime, the Silver Pompadour positively ruled with his 7,000 mile Avion Grand Tour that included Muley Point. He has a terrific write up in "Truck Camper Adventure". I read the piece and came away marveling how such smart folks are a part of our world. It sounds like you have a significant restoration in front of you. I'm assuming that its not a renovation since you have most of 2 units to effect your project. Keep us up to date with photos and commentary. That'll wake up the drowsing Avionistas. I had another of my mishaps while on the Western swing with Sweet Jane and Hula, the wonder dog. I don't recall if I mentioned it. I was fueling up the truck and noticed water dripping from the wing on the drivers side. Water? I said. Then I looked to the right and there appeared to be an opening under the wing just in front of the rear jack plate. (I don't carry the jacks with me). It was one of those moments when you're not clearly computing. "Jane" I said, "it looks like something blew up inside the coach, or something hit here. See the shards of metal under the wing hanging down?" I actually pictured, for a nanosecond, a bullet colliding with the beloved Avion. Well, folks, my rear tie down had ripped out. The Torklift Turnbuckle had disappeared as well. I stuck my finger under the wing and into the hole....and it was wet. Rotten wood came out. I didn't know where this was heading, but at that moment I'm going Zen. I'm not worrying about it. I'm traveling on to California (and Mexico). And so we did. I am definitely not looking forward to tackling this repair. The area of the wing is directly below my refrigerator. The active water leak turned out to be a bad fitting from my hot water heater. So its either my hot water leak over a long time or the fridge or who knows what? Leaks are payback from the Gods for the good times we have camping in our Avions. http://i739.photobucket.com/albums/xx38/dgorton/Joshua-tree_zpss4i26vi9.jpg

RE: Chasing Wildflowers..Joshua Tree National Park, Ca.

We were there in mid March and it was amazing. Thanks for the report, I now know that the bloom went on and on. It was a once in a lifetime event...or so they say.

RE: cannot post trip report. What's up?

Well, Jefe, if you do opt out let me know where you're going. I'll trail along. -D
