Does anybody know where we can still purchase Red Max Pro? I checked the Lowes website and they only have it in the 5 gallon size... $68 or so....

Love the stuff, but there are lots of posts threads about RMP. Can't we keep this one about vintage rigs?

Speaking of Vintage Rigs...

A little while back I mentioned this one in another post. This is the one we dubbed Jambo-Moho-Pig. It's a 1977 23' Jamboree. 440ci, 4bbll, Automatic with Headers. According to the Odometer it has about 90k on it. Gets a whole 6.8 mpg! Thus the name. I had some leaks to fix in the roof and replaced some of the interior ceiling. I also repainted the striping, hood, and bunk front staying to the original colors as close as I could. Other than that it's all original and all works. She's our current "staycation" home (for fairly obvious reason) in a small nearby campground. Here she is in all her stationary glory.

Last year I had the distributor recurved on my 454 along with the 4bbl being rebuilt upped my gas from around 6.5 to 8.5 and a lot of power to boot.

It has Banks headers. Laker plugs might look cool. Does have a really nice exhaust sound as is, especially at full throttle.

Thank you for the compliments. Only two were built, and it draws alot of interest. It is similar to the Dodge Islander dinette model, but is on a Ford 1 ton chassis. I've been using it for storage, but am starting to re-do the interior, as I now live in Mexico. You can go here and scroll down for some ratty photos of the interior:

Interesting rebuild of the Gia.
Looks like, after all that work it got rear ended while being towed back home. Sad to see a Classic reborn only to die that way.
Care to elaborate on the VW? I've had several ocer the years. My best friends son is still driving the last one I had.

In the late 1950s my Dad traded for a green US Army Tent and built this plywood trailer to mount it on. The picture shows me and my sister staking her down at the campsite in Custer State Park. I figure this is my first RV.





DW and I have had Tent Campers and a couple of PU Campers over the years . Recently we bought this. Some different I reckon.

So you're saying you really didn't move up very far? Other than not needing to stake it down anymore nice rigs- both of them.
