RE: He whazoo'ed it pretty good!

Yes that is a 9 WR, in my opinion. Just missing a few animated rocks and slot canyons.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

OK its Parbond. You can keep a little tube of it onboard and touch up whenever you like.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Garry is that exterior? I used Parbond from VTS. Its silver and flows neatly. I think that D1 may have missed your question about "silver". Am I right? Cajunavion that looks beautiful, but the mod may take it down because it exceeds the size for images which is a max of 800PX wide. In the meantime where are you traveling? Along the Gulf Coast? I must say that is a real pack of bikes. I guess you can see OK?

RE: Heading to Ft Myers next week... No plans, no reservations

I sure wish we could pack up and head to Florida. We have had one after another "storm".....ice storm, sleet storm, snow storm. Even the birds are shellshocked. The winds have been so bad that I have lost three seperate covers. Now I lay plastic sheets over the camper and wrap it with a garden hose. Sad Sad Sad......:R http://i739.photobucket.com/albums/xx38/dgorton/avion-in-snow_zpsvegzwesv.jpg

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

We had to get estimates of the value of the camper from people that the insurance company vetted. Our value went to $15,000 based on the estimates by professionals, the real costs that I have receipts for, and an enterprising insurance guy who insures my other properties. It may be the last part that was most important, though he didn't say so.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

The kids were a little sad that they didn't go sledding, but they were happily making up Ford commercials, about the old school superduty with camper and plow, going anywhere we wanted to, pulling everything stuck out. You know how 13! And 15 year olds are, bigger is better... A seriously great story. That is one that the kids won't forget.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Dave Pete, you are more than an honorary Avionista. You are an inspiration - welcome to our part of the world anytime. As to D1 and his lack of photographs.....

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Hey Garry, we're the oldest Avion posters on this string. Your first post was within an hour of my putting up the Avion string. And we're still here. D1 you have to step down from the head of the class until you get your pix posted :-(

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Well, we got politics and construction going on. First the politics: Sweet Jane is running for mayor so there is a lot of energy going into that. If she wins she's going to declare Avion day in Southern Illinois with Whazoo as Master of Ceremonies. Actually I made that up:-) We repaired the holes in the roof except for the central panel. Weather got too bad to finish the job, but I think it's doable in maybe two days with all the details. We also have to repair the couch that broke. I can't get to this stuff since my crew has been involved in another of my house restorations. I hope that finishes at roughly the same time as the election. I told Sweet Jane that I was ok however it went. If she loses we're on the road again. Finally I was contacted by Torklift to work with them in appraising their equipment. I use Torklift for my tie downs and have had great dealings with their customer service. I'll keep everyone apprised as to what happens.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

OK Guys. Its time for an update on the Avion projects. This Forum has the Grand Whazoo back and all is right with the world. Whats going on?

RE: War of the Worlds, a photoposé of the Page area

Well, well, well the Whazoo rides again. I had almost given up on this Forum but now I'll stick around a bit longer. Glad things have gotten ironed out. There was a point there when it looked............. At any rate I heart the craft of the Grand Whazoo.

RE: No pictures?

Careful guys. Don't want to get deleted :-(

RE: Deleted post......

Dave told me that he is "happy" with his new blog and wants to move on. So, thats that. As to what happened, the story is that Dave (Whazoo) posted images with his TR that were 800 pixels. He awoke in the morning to find the images all resized with a note at the bottom. Apparently that ticked him off since he had spent maybe a week shaping the images and the trip report. Whatever the case, he's gone from this forum.more info here I think its a shame, but I doubt this string will last much longer until it gets closed like all the others. D

RE: Dave Rogers (Whazoo) remembered

NRALIFR writes "I am as saddened by Dave's leaving as anyone, and hope that he might choose to rejoin us. But, don't jump to conclusions. It serves no purpose other than to inflame emotions. I think this was a difficult experience for everyone involved". A thoughtful and reasonable post. But this is the post from ADMIN in shutting down discussion: This one is done Whazoo left on his own For his blog, click here End of discussion Admin RV.net Tell me the difference in attitude? You're about to lose me as well. And I haven't been accused to improper posting of images.

Dave Rogers (Whazoo) remembered

We had a stunning fellow who posted the best trip reports for truck campers I have ever seen: Dave Rogers AKA the Grand Whazoo. I think that over the years I have enjoyed his work, his puns, his brilliant trips more than anything else on this forum. I'm sad to hear that he's gone from here. But, I'm glad we can still follow him. click He'll be missed.

RE: Alien Revenge?

I am thunderstruck by this development. Dave is one of the most talented people I have ever run across....and a treasure to this Forum and our shared interest in truck camping. He is one of the people who DISTILL what this is all about. There are others, everyone has their list, but no one reaches the heights of Whazoo. I don't know what to do.....I'm really saddened.

RE: Really would appreciate your advice on this unique camper

I am totally in favor of these handsome, innovative approaches to truck camping. I would think that there could be some changes down the road to allow for more storage, cooking, heating and other conveniences. At the reasonable prices I see, it opens up the TC experience to a lot more folks. And thats a very good thing. In my opinion, the tendency towards multi-slide TCs carried on dually trucks that altogether cost close to $100K should be balanced at the lower end with thrifty, light TCs that allow for a whole different segment of the population to enjoy our lifestyle. One thing I note in the photos is a tie down system that is not connected to the frame. I don't think that is a good idea. Otherwise, I'd say go for it and send us a trip report.
