Ours is a 23 ft 1977 Midas Mini on a GMC 1 ton Chassis. Stripped walls down to the studs to replace a few rotted parts. Rebuilt & painted cabinets (I now have adjustable shelves!), built a full size bed across the rear and installed beadboard on the walls (pale yelow) and anaglypta paper on the ceiling (looks like old-fashiond tin ceiling with a faux blue sky with white clouds on it). Still need to install the parquet wood floor and finish installing the trim. David says after living in this full-time (which we are now) with the dog & cat, I will find the 40ft bus conversion "spacious". Still got a little more "tweaking" to do.

Hi there, I am new to this site as well as rv'ing. My fiance and I just purchased our first travel trailer. It is a 28 ft Fleetwood Prowler. I think it's a 79 model year but could be wrong due to the fact we can't read the vin tag as is so weather beaten.

Have you posted your for sale rigs on the forum "For Sale" option?

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Originally posted by 53clipper:
I have a 1968 Venture 19' Class A, one piece molded fiberglass, wide block 318, made in Banning,CA. It has more cupboards and storage than you have ever seen in 19'.
I also have a beautiful 1993 36' Class A Airstream Landyacht!! Both for sale !
Now that I am widowed, I can't use the Class A's anymore, depth perception, too much distance between the mirrors.
I can use my 1982 22'TransStar Class B+, and I am very happy and comfy driving it. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Didn't get the title yet as we got it from a trailer park and are making payment on it, but my fiance did find all of the papers of everything that is in the trailer in one of the drawers. The vin number is written in the back of the book on the trailer. It is 20R92118S3673

1977 Overland 30' HSRC Class A here. Just got the rig a couple of months ago, and already have a couple of years worth of plans for refurbishing it. Hey, I have a question on floorcoverings: I am wanting to put tile on the floors, but I have heard that the floors "flex" a lot when driving the Class A. The flexing of the floor is said to cause a lot of tile breakage. My question is

1) Is this so, or am I getting old info here?
2) Is there a better alternative to tile for durability and ease of cleaning?

Thanks!!

1979 Fleetwood Wilderness 5th wheel 32 ft. We've had it for 5 years. Do new upgrades every year. Got this from my dad as he was to old to enjoy it anymore but love all the pics and stories we tell of our adventures.

I traded the Airstream MH for two cars, just to get it away from here, as the Property Owner's Assoc. was giving me a bad time.
I can't get the Venture MH away from my son, and I don't have the time to clean it up to sell it right now, as I have a 1977 Apache Ramada Hardside to work on. It will be for sale later, as it is too big, (sleeps 8,) for just lil ole me, and I think that it will be too much for me to put up and down by myself.
I just got a lovely, almost like new, 18' 1968 Hi-Lo. I just have to install the new shades and drapes I have bought for it, that match the original upholstery. It even has a power tongue jack, so this will be more my style !! I also have to install an a/c, as they didn't have roof airs in 1968, and I want to try to keep it mostly original. The back window is one big awning type, so I can install a window unit in there, without even removing the glass.
Happy Trails all you Vintage-ites, Penny, TX
