No Ryegal, we prefer the quite camping spots. The ralleys are fun but a little too crowded and as we camp with three big dogs they are not always welcome. Tomorrow we are off to Oakridge for a few days to enjoy the Willamette River.

Yes vintage RV's interest me, though I don't have one as yet.

I think I qualify as vintage. See sig. I'm now looking for a 60's tow vehicle. Ther's goota be one out there that will hit me "just right" and say "TAKE ME HOME!!!" Kinda maybe looking for a Willys Station Wagon or maybe an OLD Jeep Wagoneer. Maybe just the right old station wagon will do. I'll figure it out one of these days.....

I OWN A 1963 TROTWOOD TRAVEL TRAILER......(MANUFACTURER IS OUT OF BUSINESS)

I WOULD LOVE TO SEE A VINTAGE FORUM FORMED.

30 YEARS OR OLDER MAY BE A GOOD PLACE TO START IN DEFINING "VINTAGE"

I can't believe my eyes!! A Vintage Forum. I requested this myself and never got any response to the request. I had stopped visting this site because it just didn't have much to offer for my situation. There are lots of folks out there that prefer the quality of vintage RV's over new. And of course being a vintage owner brings a whole array of questions and problems that info on is hard to come by. I have restored both a TT and a Class C RV so I may be able to help others in their endeavors. I am so happy this new section has been added. I may become a frequent visitor again.

Too long in coming. Have an 1965 18' Oasis we used for added room and later for storage on the ranch for 30yrs. Couple of yrs ago decided to make it road worthy. Not too many people to talk to or seek counsel from back then. Wound up w/new wiring, water system (yeh ~ copper doesn't last forever). Had to learn refrigeration as theres no parts for this'un just like many other issues that cropped up. I flipped the axle to better match the tow vehicle. Each step was a learning adventure ~ didn't know what we'd find. We made about 8K miles worth of trips but the water damage, mold had taken its toll on the superstructure where long trips or even short ones are out of the question. We loved the bunking arrangement, the quality wood furnishing w/natural glow finish ~ just impossible to experience anymore. In the fall the missus and I recall the exciting trips taken, the hope driven restoral efforts and the feeling is difficult to verbalize. We often talk of the experiences we shared. Looking for a newer TT but nothing can ever replace the wonderous memories and experience from our vintage trailer. Words fail ~ ~ ~

Odoh...great story. Half the fun is in the reserection and recreation. It is a learning experience for sure and you'll be much better able to spot potential problems than the average RV buyer due to all your experience on your former rig. There is nothing that says you have to buy new when you buy the next time. The oldies are still goodies. Good luck to you in your search.

Hi all, well I finally took my Barth in to the shop and had all new water lines put in.As I explained on other posts I have a water leak and I thought all new water lines would fix this. well it didn't. I think I know now what the problem is I think is the freshwater hose from the outside and where it connects to the tank. so do I need to take it to the shop again or is this something my son and I can do?Thanks for all your susport.

I think 20 years old would be a better starting spot for vintage units. They are not the same structure as autos or mombile home.<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Originally posted by 1963 Trotwood:

I'm new to this board but like the idea of a vintage forum.
I have a 1977 Apache 24 ft Class C on a Dodge Chassic, 360 cid Automatic. Engine replaced in 97 with a Jasper rebuilt 360 has 8000 miles on new engine. It got too small for us, so we bought a 5th wheel, guess I should sell it before it falls into major disrepairs

I have a 11.5 foot, 1988 Bigfoot truck slide-in camper, in excelent condition.

I also have a 11.5 foot, 1977 (I think) Amerigo truck slide-in camper,with a side entry and back pop-out bed. The Amerigo is in very bad shape, and I have not yet decided if I am going to restore it. It was a top of the line TC in its day.
