Hello, I'm rubiranch. I was invited here by michcruiser60 from another forum.

We have a common interest in vintage TTs. My wife and I have a 1969 Excel 19' TT that we tow with our 1972 Ford pickup.

Been here a couple days and posted once ot twice and thought I should check-in.

Thanks for having me.

Thanks again for the warm welcome.



Here's a picture of our '69 Excel TT and our 1972 Ford pickup, both "un-restored".

We enjoy boondocking and have upgraded our TT to accommodate our camping needs the best we can.

We have added a Rosen LCD TV, DVD player, Alpine stereo, 2nd battery to power our accessories, an additional on-board 25 gallon fresh water tank to add to the 41 gallon tank, vent fan, on-board water transfer pump to transfer water carried in our truck (up to another 50+ gallons), and several other small creature comforts. I am currently adding a Solite LP light and I am looking for a second one to add to the bathroom for both heat and light.

Our truck is a Camper Special, Ranger XLT, 390, 4.10 gears, C-6 trans, 8100 GVW and only has 35,000 miles on it.

Together they make a great camping set up for us. We camp so we can ride and explore on our ATV.

Thanks for the compliments, too bad the fence doesn't tag a long.

Well I've been sorta lurking for over 1 year now. We got a little busy around here. Two years ago we bought a Jayco 34' class C. It seems to have spent more time in repair than us on the road. Recently we had a leak with the water which they finally fixed but put so much foam on the water still didn't work. So after 4 months this round in the shop they sent someone out to fix. We have a radio/CD player in the front - still doesn't work. finally the radio will play but not in all the speakers. Long Story short - we love the design but our local RV shop needs help. We would like to upgrade to a larger modle but love the overhead sleeping area for our kids. But, we would like a diesel. I would like to tow a vehicle for trotting around town.

Anyway - DH and I work from home we have 7 kids. 1 moved out already and #2 moves out in the fall to go to school. DH is considering going out on the road and back into the hotel consulting business and we would tag along. We are really gypsies at heart. We've been in Memphis, TN for 9 years and we are itching to move on.

Currently we are getting ready to pack up and spend the summer out in CA where I hear the price of gas is way up there.

Happy Trails,
Kama

Sorry about your troubles. I have lucky and been able to handle all of our repair needs so far. Only one real "repair" was a new water heater, the rest have all been personal wants and upgrades.

Hope you get back on the road soon.
