Hi all, we just brought home our "new" 1975 Shasta 20 ft tandem axle baby last night. Drove 300 miles to get her! Have a little to do to her, but basically she's in really good shape. Hope to post pics later today. Have a question....does anyone have a good source for the tongue jack wheel? All the ones we can find around Houston are too big. Had this problem with our 78 popup also. Thanks!

Here is a link to pics of our "new" Shasta. 1975 18'. (It's an 18', NOT 20' like we were told, but that's fine with us). In really, really good condition considering age. Will repaint outside, sew new curtains, cushion covers, fix few tiny little things, but can be used as is. Everything works, roof AC/heat, all lights, all electrical, all plumbing. Has 4 new tires and new spare. Two new propane tanks. Let me know if you know what model this is....we think it's a Stratoflyte, but just not sure. Pulled 300 miles with Kia minivan without a problem. First camping trip in 2 weeks.

Looking at the pics it seems to be in pretty good shape. Hope you enjoy it.
You may look for the tongue jack wheel in WalMart or if you have a Harbor Freight close by.
