I vote for leaving the same also. You can start a new thread when you have finished working on this TH. I figure that will take at least another decade or two. That would be the CLACer in you.

KEEP THE THREAD !

1)The title is TOTAL , no?

2)I don't think there is a limit on pages.

3)Is there anyone here that hasn't read from the beginning ?

3A)All newbies will "earn" their way in by reading all the way through ,
and will get to know everyone and see the project evolve from the total from scratch beginning to the final episode video shot of you headin' off into the sunset ....................

THEN start the sequel , "TOTAL FULLTIMERS in a TOTAL REBUILD"

As producer, I agree keep the thread! This way we can keep the same advertisers and as others said it will go from beginning to end..

Maybe a big picture of a 5th wheel, where you end the TH and start the TV? The 2 will be hitched!

Gordon, will Depends and Viagra stick with us till the end? I think we can pick up more sponsors once the builds are done and the reliability run is underway. That will be true adventure. The Ice Road truckers don't build their own rigs. That pales in comparison.

Terry, safe travels tomorrow. Enjoy it!

Hey Lloyd;
Depends and Viagra may cover our back end if we can keep it up.

If they won't stick with us will approach Johnson and Johnson as an alternative.

"I am stuck on band aid strips cause band aids stuck on me".

It sounds like we are all in agreement that Terry and Eleanor will continue the thread by morphing over to the TV.

This would be the tale of Twin Tow Vehicles - the short and the long . . . wheelbase that is.

I am hoping that Terry leaves the new TV fairly long. I am voting to keep it like it is and build a bigger Toter Box. If he encounters any restricted length campgrounds he and Eleanor can simply use the Toter and load the bikes beside the 5 wheel. It would even work for short vacations. JMO

Terry and Eleanor - have a great vacation. You have earned it for all of the work that you have done to prepare for it.

Good Evening, Wow, you guys are something else . Thanks for the well wishes on our first test run actually camping . We are loaded up and almost ready to go, we will be leaving tomorrow morning around 9:00. figured on taking my time and stopping to check on things several times just to make sure everything is settling in where it should. Gordon, I keep looking at the Toters and they are impressive, I'm not sure I have the pocketbook to build one of those, but so far I've been the master of taking from an abused and misused RV and repurposing it into something I can use, so I guess we'll see. I think I have to post my videos somewhere else, and link to it, I haven't been able to post a video direct to the site here. If someone has a suggestion let me know. Have a great nite all, and stay tuned, if the campsite has WiFi I'll be posting.

Terry - looking forward to the pictures.

Yup Toters are impressive. I am thinking Toter Jr. or Toter Lite. Sort of like a guest suite.

He Terry,


How about (Total Rebuild, TV Edition) ? I agree that newcomers need to read this whole thing to be able to appreciate all you two have done as well as all the great suggestions along the way that were offered.


I look forward to what you and the guys come up with with the TV. Going to be interesting.


Sure hope you two have a great trip. It must be very exciting knowing this weekend you will actually get to play with this thing. That must have been a bit difficult to see when you first started. You know how when you start a project you can see in your mind what the finished product will look like? Could you see that with the TH?


Glad you are at this point. Enjoy your trip. Lynne
