Re: the battery charging issues, I think the questions are deserving of a string of their own? To get your head wrapped around all the logic involved behind the way they should be/are wired, covers a lot of country. Buried in a string regarding vintage photos may not be the best place for the discussion?

Funny, I worked for Williamscraft back in 1970-72 and built a boat load of campers very much like that one.

I started out in flooring then went to walls, cabinets, siding, plumbing and Final Finish. Wasn't the best paying job, but we had fun working there.

The Owners let us play music in the plant all day. Every day was a different venue. You could hear people singing along with the tunes as we worked. Some if them were actually really good singers.

Breaktimes were always fun. Lots of interaction and mutual respect between the different Departments.

Even transferred over to Mobile Homes for the last 3 months. Same atmosphere!


It payed for my College!

We have just purchased a 1990 BlueBird Wanderlodge. We are EXCITED!

So much value, for so little.

We've been all over the country with out 275hp Cat. I never felt it was lacking, even with the Honda in back of it. In traffic, we're right at home running in the middle of the pack with the semi's. Pass some, get passed by others. We do generally get there in pretty good shape, and get reasonable mpg....

Congrats! I would be too. Agree on value. Very nearly went this way myself at one point, but decided a slide out was a priority.

Thank you! Not unless there's a hill in in my path, haha. Its not too bad I guess considering the total weight and 8.5mpg but I would like a little more hp for those hills.
