You be careful out there in the heat!! I had been drinking about 2-3 gallons of water everyday I ws working on Dusty!! Now that I am waiting for the coach to be re roofed,I still drink about 2 gallons a day. That and keeping a hat on helps!

The hat reduces burns, but retains heat. Be sure to wear one that is designed to allow maximum airflow while providing shade to prevent burning.

Hey, Inalabama, are you OK? We miss hearing from you. Or did you finish up that trailer and now have it out camping?

I sooooo agree with you Sanjay. I work in a stuffy cubicle everyday. I have so enjoyed the great story about his trailer, the pictures only make the story more entertaining. Also, I feel as though I personally know your Felicity. The stories have been great. I have 1980 Travelcraft that is driving me crazy. I still have not found an appropriate name for mine I was thinking something in french, a very discriptive noun. Keep the stories coming.

Maybe he's been held up by the heat... or the rain (pouring here right now)... or the heat & rain . Or maybe he's gone screaming off the deep end from the stupid stuff that Frolic did! After all what kind of company would use wimpy framing for the rear section of a Class C (Guess what the idiots at Frolic did on our Class C!). Sometimes I would love to meet someone who was responsible for the design for our Class C.


(For those who don't know) Frolic built our Midas Mini.

I so agree. I often feel it is a good thing that the "engineers" responsible for materials selection on this rig are scattered to the 4 winds. Either because I do not need the jail time, or to enhance the fun of hunting them down. . .

I agree, all of the engineers out there should have to work on the equipment they design. It would give them a new perspective on how to design and build the equipment....and I am an engineer.

Just a note, I did send a email to INalabama and Got no responce. i am thinking he may have had a computer problem or maybe a problem in the family but I don't have anything other than his email to make any contact with. I hope he is ok, and our prayers go out to him.
