RE: Air Dams - People Always Asks Me

Hey Jumbo. Don't mean to take this string off topic, those air dams are great. But, is anyone going to post from the Kerrville rally?

RE: Overnighting-while-Urban, or OU

Interesting thread. BKA and Steve, what is it about the EarthRoamer crowd? I almost got run off the road by one of them leaving Mormon Lake last year. I've looked into colors, paints, skins/wraps and other techniques on my camper. I even looked carefully at the "dazzle" camouflage from WWl that was placed on ships to fool the periscopes of German U Boats. I ran across skins/wraps that are applied to one of the most expensive cars in the world, the Ferrari 458. http://i739.photobucket.com/albums/xx38/dgorton/Ferrari-458-Italia-Winter-Camo-01-500x333_zps2esngtpo.jpg My aluminum skinned Avion is anodized and tends to get pretty chalky and weathered looking. Of course its the OEM look that a lot of people treasure so I probably won't change it...even to gain stealth advantage. But even with the chalky qulaity of the surface it can be bright as the sun and visible for many miles. http://i739.photobucket.com/albums/xx38/dgorton/Muley-point-3_zpsa1ec611c.jpg But, it oddly fits into the landscape.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Its that time of year whereby I get my prized Avion back up to speed. You may recall that I managed to tear into the roof late last Spring. We got started on the repairs in late summer, but things came up and we put it aside. Now we are closing the gap. http://i739.photobucket.com/albums/xx38/dgorton/avionrepair_zpsi8wy4p45.jpg Here you can see that we are working with the last panel that is located in the center...and its where the running lights are located. http://i739.photobucket.com/albums/xx38/dgorton/avionrepair1_zps7lvpt9oq.jpg Here is the panel ready to be inserted with the cut-outs already made. It is pre-drilled for the rivets. We are missing the Texas Truck Camper rally this year because we spent the entire winter and Spring campaigning when we should have been camping. If anyone out there plans to run for office take a deep breath and give me a call. Truck camping and campaigning don't mix well. I have a lot of work to do with Torklift to fix my suspension correctly and make my towing a lot safer. I'll let you know how that works out.

RE: 6 foot or 8 foot bed in Mexico

You're certainly correct about turning radius, at least in regards my F350. I feel its like turning an ocean liner. So, something that can navigate tight corners in a place like Mexico is a wise move. BTW, I really appreciate your waving off the "Mexico is Dangerous" meme. I want very much to travel there but have a hard time getting supportive information because of the perceived threat of harm. Perhaps you can tell us of your trips at some point. On edit: I just looked at your informative web pages. Its exactly what I have been looking for....

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.

How can I find the interview?

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
