RE: Replacing escape hatch

Had mine coated with Line- X years ago because any plastic exposed to sunlight tends to deteriorate. 12 years now and still strong.

RE: DIY Awning

Even the marine boat canvas does not last forever and is expensive to replace even on a factory awning so I love the idea. I really don't like my factory awning being that it is troublesome in many ways. Think I'll get rid of it and do something like you did. Simple and smart.

RE: A response to reduce unsolicited live sales calls.

My wife has diabetes and somehow every diabetic supply company in the country calls offering free diabetic supplies. I tell them to just send me two or three of them that they bring $20.00 at my garage sales. :B:B:B

RE: Are you REALLY that inconsiderate??

With a medical condition he would have greater incentive to buy a polite and quiet gen. since it would then become a good tax write off.

RE: Are you REALLY that inconsiderate??

As long as there are people there will be stupid and inconsiderate, rude people. It's a fact of life and the more people you're around the greater the chance to encounter some. If they're a real problem just camp were there aren't any and just ignore them when you can't avoid them. They can't get your goat if you don't tell them where is tied. Yes, smaller towns, smaller gatherings, people are more prone to be very considerate, on the other hand.

RE: The Journey of the Redneck Express - Pirates & Truck Campers

Glad you got that one Matt. Nice find. Love an old vintage truck and camper that is still so clean and straight. Something about it. Study your roof seams and corners real good Matt, she's just about there when her price starts to go up from now on.

RE: Are you REALLY that inconsiderate??

The ones that enjoy being rude and annoying to others..... that is the ones I cannot stand. It's like they make it their goal in life to be rude and impolite to someone ea. day. Of course that is why I have wheels under my house so I can split. Sometimes not leaving till I get a chance to tell them about their faulty manners and character.

RE: Battery Charging and Isolation

I don't charge off the truck alternator anymore. It gets hot and can burn up diodes. Not good for the alternator to work so hard. I charge by quiet gen or on the grid. Solar panels someday when they get better.

RE: I'm confused....as usual

:h Funny How the Mind Works :h I.E. A particular problem exists for the camper manufacturer, shows up 2 years after ownership as to what the problem is. Owner is perplexed as to what to do, but, one day after thinking over a solution for several days/ weeks without success because the problem is so far insurmountable, you find your self talking to some school dropout, no degrees ,no formal extensive education, say something, maybe just one word or perhaps a set of words that triggers a thought. Now unable to listen to the rest of the conversation because of the sudden capitol/ unbeleivable solution creeps in out of nowhere. Never discount anyone, Have faith you guys. Some of the lowliest people have helped the most in my life.

RE: Range Hood FAN Replacement

I did this mod a long time ago but, also did this to the bathroom fan originally. Those rv fans jumped in the garbage by themselves.:)

RE: New Sneaker's and much needed TLC

Instead of coffee try Starbucks green tea. I have the same problem with coffee but their organic green tea is Fireworks by comparison. Healthy for you also

RE: Eagle Cap campers, experience?

Let me just say, we toured the Eagle Cap factory and the Arctic Fox factory before buying. We did not buy AF. What does this have to do with the OPs question? I thought this post is rather helpful to the OP. After all an industry where they primarily pay on piece rated work needs to have tighter quality controls. What they charge for trucks and campers now a days you could start with an armored truck, turn it into a nice camper and you'd have something really bullet proof. I would in essence strongly consider having a camper custom built as an alternative. That is because of workmanship standards seemingly dropping in most industries.

RE: Why do you apply Luan on to filon?

Judging by what stainless countertops cost (just had some completed) and what camper manufacturers and dealers are charging for a new unit. It' in my estimation that a camper body could be built out of all stainless steel and not mess around with rotting, problematic materials.

RE: TC Mattress

Our mattress has low spots towards the center. Would a topper fix this? I discovered it was the camper sagging under the weight of the mattress and us, the sleepers up there. The bed area has mostly thin framing/ structure, so you'll get some bed sag to the center in lots of these campers. We folded towels to various thicknesses and laid them under the mattress for a straight bed. This helps a lot but, takes time to get it right.

RE: New camper discount.

For that kind of money I would build one custom built. That's a crazy price if you ask me and the way they build them.... sheesh.... youd be better off getting a nice shape used one and upgrading it to your liking. New counters, upholstery, custom memory mattress, decent backsplash, nice flooring, custom trimwork cut to perfection, upgraded high r value rigid foam under the mattress to stop the cold telegraph as is so common and laminate the exterior belly of the camper with thin gauge aluminum. You still would have a discount in your pocket.

RE: Replacement Escape vent lid

Yes, I would have it coated before putting it back on. I think if mine ever started to crack I would fiberglass the whole thing by bringing it to a boat builder and have him spray it with the fiberglass chopper gun. That would probably work great too. Often saving money in the short term cost much more in the long run.

RE: Replacement Escape vent lid

I'll never need to replace mine since I had it armor coated with two coats of Line-X bedliner when it was new. I took it off and brought it down there to have it done. I could see the future with cracks and deterioration on such a thin thing they call a hatch cover. 12 years now and still strong. That is, until Buzcutt throws a big rock at it.

RE: Truck camping in Yosemite questions

Maybe I am a bit biased living so close to Yosemite Valley but it is a freaking zoo all summer long, traffic jams, crowded noisy campgrounds, lines of people on the popular trails. Summer is better spent in the high country of the park. If you want Waterfalls April through May in a normal rainfall year. If you want the Valley, Toulumne,and Tigo pass leading to the spectacular east side off 395, come in September when the crowds have thinned and the leaves are starting to turn. I agree. Cannot take the crowd more than about one afternoon and then always leave to get out. Even the Awahnee hotel for lunch, although expensive, was terrible the last time we went for lunch. It used to be a wonderful experience.
