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.

RE: Tx Truck Camper Rally

Best Rally we went to last year. Unfortunately, we can't make it this year. Best of luck guys.

RE: New prototype truck camper

What I do see really scares me that my choices in the future may be limited to old antique units to get the things I like. Don't be afraid. Its OK to have "old antique units".

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

It's so nice not to have to create this rebuild out of whole cloth, to be able to share experiences and sources and problem solving strategies. You bet! And we'll compare notes at the first Western Avionista Rally in Muley Pt. Utah.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to our TC tribe!

It's that time of year again when we gather with family and friends to celebrate the holidays. In that spirit I offer a seasons greeting to my fellow TC friends, many of whom I know only through this RV.net. You are a wonderful and engaging group, always helpful and supportive. My little band of Avionistas is still plugging away with our restorations of our classic truck campers - and quite a few of us are on the road visiting relatives or just getting away. I want to share my favorite Christmas tune with everyone, including our faithful Mod - Wayne. click Merry Christmas and a Happy New Years. Keep on trucking. D. Gorton

Hey Cajun. I'm betting that's not the Pacific.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

I like the interior LED lights. Not too sure about the outside light. I used the old heat vent for the scarelight, and I have the built-in porch light. Whats up with the mounted light outside?

RE: Sailing the Southwest with the Whazoos

Dave - Its time you form up a Whazoo Posse and take it on a week long adventure into Whazooland. I'd sign up and I'm sure Sweet Jane would ride again. D

RE: Torklift back at it again!!! Are you kidding me???

I'd like to add my voice in praising the folks at Torklift. I had a tie down that broke - I actually think that something I did contributed to the failure - but Torklift insisted on replacing the piece. They were smart, thoughtful and swift. Easily the best products and services that I have run across in truck camping. D. Gorton

RE: 2015 Overland Expo West

Timothy - I went last year and wrote up the experience for Truck Camper Magazine click It is an amazing experience, high in the mountains and surrounded by thousands of Expedition vehicles and their owners. Of course the best part is schmooozing with folks, especially in the compound formed up by the truck camper crowd - presided over by Bryan. Many of the folks that I knew from this forum were in attendance including Whazoo, Seldom Seen, Sheep Camp, 69Avion, BKA and others. It is one of the peak experiences with a TC. Afterwards we traveled all through the West for one of the best trips we've ever taken. We won't make it this year, unfortunately. There is an event at the same time that we can not miss. I'll think about you guys though.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Thats the life. Settled in next to the surf, cool beers at hand while you watch the fishing poles. Snug sleep at night in the Avion.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Looks like a funky backporch where you can dress fish or set down your beer cooler.

RE: This is gonna get moved

This probably won't be moved, considering there are already 2 fuel price threads, a TPMS thread, and how to make toast. LMAO!

RE: Alaskan TC Owners

I bought a 1965 Alaskan that had been a hunter's cabin on a Missouri farm for many a year. It was my first attempt at restoring a camper. In this case it was a 8', non-cabover. I quickly learned the first rule of TC dos and don't when buying an old camper - check out the damage from the leaks. http://i739.photobucket.com/albums/xx38/dgorton/alaskan_zps463f9d4b.jpg Well, it was serious. There was water damage everywhere. But, as I dug through the camper I was more and more impressed with the quality and beauty of the workmanship. The hydraulics still worked, lifting the top up and dropping it down. The wood was gorgeous, drawers were perfectly made, doors swung well, etc. http://i739.photobucket.com/albums/xx38/dgorton/alaskan1_zps3e269678.jpg Eventually, I decided that it was better on the farm than restored. so, back it went. But, I was very taken with the Alaskan and have come to think it is probably the best constructed camper on the market. I met a fellow at the Mid Atlantic Truck Camper rally who has a brand new Alaskan and he was really tickled with it. So, I think you should be assured of the quality of the construction. I never experienced the issues of weather and bugs while lifting the top since mine was not a cabover, so I don't have any advice on that. Hope this helps.
