Looking for MH in Ottawa On...and new here

Hi, I am Gank.... it was my Grandfathers nick name and as a WW1 vet I honour his memory by using it as my motorcycle riding nickname.

Spent 27 years Camping under canvas and anything else I could find shelter in for Her Majesty, as an Armoured Officer. I pull a Danish Combi trailer behind my motorcycle... aluminium build, super lite and great canvas... it goes up in 30 seconds, I can stand to get dressed, and I stay dry. The damn thing kills my mileage, I go from 48 mpg to 44 mpg

Owned a HILO 10 years ago, whish I still had it. Now looking for a Previoulsy enjoyed motorhome... have my eye on a unit... hope to get it for a good price. 1988 Empress Tripple E... with a 454... would love a diesel... but not yet

Posted more pictures in the Vintage thread... its and old unit

Anyways, looking to enjoy my retirement and post retirement work with plenty of travelling around the country side with my wife and special needs daughter

Keep the Rubber Side Down

Hi Gank, welcome to the forum. Great looking little rig. I suggest that you pull it to Florida for winter. We have less snow here.
