See the fun part is the truck isn't the RV, the camper on the back is The camper is vintage 1974 Technology.

I'm working on geting the truck to look more old. Just ordered a set of 1972 Ford Camper Special badges to put on it, and am looking at a set of the old Super Single Rims from a 1968 F-250 for a tire upgrade. (Found a place that makes Load range F 12 ply tires for the rims).

We love our 1979 Silver Streak. We went backwards from a 1995 Avion when we got the opportunity to pick this beautifully maintained trailer from my wife's Dad when he hung up the keys.

These older units have so much more to offer than the newer ones. Seems like the manufacturers have forgotten a lot of the things that they use to know about RVs.

Ya know, There seems to be a lot of that going around!! I was looking at a friends today and one of the biggest things was 12 volt outlets!!! Yes they have one or two up in the cab area but back in the 70's they had one 12 volt outlet for every 110 volt AC outlet!! The layouts are another area where they have made changes but I don't really like the changes! They make them bigger and more powerful ok, but it was easy to change whatever you needed to change and personalize to your needs. Now you have to buy it that way or pay someone to do it for you unless you have a degree or something!! The older were more cozy and warm!! You go out to the dealers and you start looking about and see a couple hundred or so rv's and they all have there brands but look all the same!! Nothing personal at all about it at all! Like a One size fits all thing..Not me!! I will just find one Dusty...And its ours!!!!!

Guess our 84 Heritage doesn't qualify as vintage yet. Even if we have orange shag carpet? It has a 454 engine and turbo 400 trans. Does the Quadrajet carb help? It's at least old enough I can still work on it and keep it going.

Hope & Rick
A good Rochester carb properly setup will do real good.....
I've found that most of them are over rich from the factory and the jetting is a dab "tuff" digging around for the correct jets.
My 87 Winny had 76 gets which only needed 73s and the present 83 had 73s from the factory still runs a hair rich.
Engine timing and spark plugs will tell the story....

Jim
