RE: Avion truck camper rebuilds - Hundreds of photos!

It seems like a front mounted carrier that had room for both the genset and the fuel would be the best solution. It might have room for other items as well.

How have you Avionistas been doing? Lets get some reports up now that we have photos being displayed again.

RE: Avion truck camper rebuilds - Hundreds of photos!

Well, well we have confirmation that Photobucket has come to its senses. I just signed up for $19.99 a year that includes 3rd party hosting. So, my photos will be protected for a while at least. I urge everyone else to sign up.

RE: Avion truck camper rebuilds - Hundreds of photos!

I have made it my occupation to hassle Photobucket since their bizarre decision. I really don't know if it mattered since they have been harrassed by thousands if not millions. But, I'm hearing that there has been some sort of breakthrough. Don't mistake me, I don't trust it. But, I'm seeing my old photos too. We'll see.

RE: Avion truck camper rebuilds - Hundreds of photos!

Rasta, it sounds like the Avion will look like a red headed stepchild. In fact, that might be an interesting color scheme. But, I'll personally stand up for your right to remain an Avionista.

That sounds great. I'd like to see that when you finish. I hope a C11 owner passes by soon. D

RE: Avion truck camper rebuilds - Hundreds of photos!

I wonder if its possible to "offshore" the material to a website? Do you know?

RE: Avion truck camper rebuilds - Hundreds of photos!

That's astonishing, but its not surprising. It reflects the talent and doggedness of our Avionistas. I think we should take up Rasta on a gathering at his place in Florida. We could set up an outdoor screen and project the work. I'm sure our spouses would find other things to do....but it would be cool for the rest of us. January, Rasta???

66C10....I think you're on a mission from God. You're getting the band back together. Your reward will be here on earth with jerk chicken from Rasta, and Baby Bourbon from Southern Illinois. Onward!

Good work on the archiving. I also took out the URL www.aviontruckcampers.com in case we want to go to a website at some point.

RE: Avion truck camper rebuilds - Hundreds of photos!

Jake, it looks like we're going to get the band back together. http://i.imgur.com/DkkMAaDh.jpg Here's another story. As we have long established, there is never a trip without a tragedy. Well, not exactly a tragedy, but stuff that turns your day upside down. Recently Sweet Jane and I traveled to Austin, Texas. We had a little business to do and we planned to visit old friends. We were in Lake Charles, La. having just finished a lunch of crab cakes, oysters and gumbo. A little bit of wine and some good cajun bread. I was filling up the tanks and I happened to look up at the front of the Avion. The entire window had blown out! I went inside and glass was strewn over everything. It must have broken somewhere on the road and I had been traveling at 75MPH blowing the interior to smithereens. What to do? We got on the the net and found 3 glass companies in town. We asked one after the other if they would fix the window. "Nope. We don't do that kind of custom work". At the last place the special glass guy was just going to lunch. He said he'd see us in 30 minutes - I said we'd clean out the Avion while we were waiting. We found a spot and took out every pillow, mattress, rug, blanket and threw them all in a pile. Then we went through the interior with a broom and swept out thousands of pieces of glass. Jane got up on the cabover and plucked glass out of the edges of the window. The guy came back and said you got two choices: we can replace your window and the frame, but we'll have to order all the parts and it will be at least a week and maybe $1500 - $3000. Or, I can put some polycarbonate in there. We went for the polycarbonate. That Cajun drilled holes, applied some sort of magic glue and we trash talked about Ole Miss (my college) and LSU (his college). I was careful not to actually tell the truth about LSU so as not to upset him while he was working. In about 30 minutes he had it finished. We went through Gulf rain storms after that at 70 MPH. Not a drop. Its better than the original. We took three hours from discovery of the disaster to getting back on the road. It cost $125. Life in the Avion is good.

Then come on through to our place. Spring is in full bloom. We have more of that Baby Bourbon.

RE: Avion truck camper rebuilds - Hundreds of photos!

You betcha. It needs to be archived. The photos can be retrieved, I think, on a case to case basis. Do it and we'll all be grateful. Unfortunately, I have always been a sceptic of Facebook, so I'm not a member. But maybe I'll join for this.

Garryk6, you have been here since the beginning. Welcome onboard again. You have some of the most interesting and substantive comments on this string. How in the world are all those children that you took camping in the Avion? I know that one of them is a Marine at 29 Palms. I remember that you acnieved a new world record in children, pets and wives onboard an Avion TC in subfreezing temperatures.

RE: Avion truck camper rebuilds - Hundreds of photos!

Cajun Avion, we thought of you while camping last month at the Sabine Pass in Texas. It had everything that a Cajun could want: fish shacks nearby, huge ships growling in the night, lights from the flares at the refineries, and a beautiful moon rising over the water. I've got photos, but I'm not sure how to post them. Here is a test on imgur of dawn on the Sabine. https://i.imgur.com/rzwRIYH.jpg?1

RE: Avion truck camper rebuilds - Hundreds of photos!

Rastaman, there is no way that you can get rid of your Avion TC. Jane and I will personally serve you cease and desist papers while demanding some of the Jamaica jerk chicken at your place;-) How are you guys doing?

RE: Avion truck camper rebuilds - Hundreds of photos!

Well, it looks like we're still going. Alright, then. Lets start from the beginning. Does anyone have any idea about the most secure picture hosting? Lets nail that down with no wiggle room. I'll start monitoring this site again. After all, it WAS/IS the most comprehensive Avion truck camper site in the known world. And, of course, we know that the Avion truck camper is probably the best single TC ever designed. Otherwise, why are so many of them on the road after 50+ years? I'll tell you why. Because the Avion TC represented American workmanship and ingenuity at its peak. In my opinion, we're getting that back again after many many years of planned obsolescence and downright shoddy products. We need this site, so lets work at it. Onward! DG

RE: photobucket

I started one of the longest strings ever on this website: Avion truck campers. It had over 550.000 views and (I think) 3-4 thousand posts with photos. One day it was all over. No one from RV.net thought to ask if they could help with this issue with PB. So, the best site in the world for Avion truck campers is not longer active. Its Photobucket, of course, but this site could have safeguarded our hard work with their own photo hosting or become an advocate with PB to save our string.
