Talking Good Ole '77 Jamboree

At the end of 2011, we bought this Class C RV from a family friend in SoCal... Changed out the wheels and tires to 16" to match my ford ranger 4x4, which I can't tow... and of course, having a Can-Am Spyder with us too, a looong trailer was necessary... but we are a rolling rig now.. mpg varies from 4.9 to 6.2, with a 440 and 727 3-speed tranny... the trailer has e-brakes and they weren't hooked up, so I did the deed and put in a brake controller too.... now that we've got most of the unknowns sorted out, we are heading east to SC, via AZ, TX, AR, then home... We left home in SC at the end of August 2011 and we are STILL on the road... We'll be very glad to get home... Glenn
