A word of advice !

      Recently my wife was watching HGTV (may this channel rot in #$%^^) and she said we needed to re do the bathroom.I admit it needs some work but she wants to go over board.I had a smarta$$ idea so i told her if she hired this contractor i mite be interested.

She failed to see the humor!!!

Just back from the lake.

      Sorry  for not posting we took the camper and had a long stay at the lake. Where we were at had no internet.This trip gave us a chance to check out all the features of the camper.We are impressed with the funfinders storage and now have itstocked and ready to go anywhere.I will be moving a few prepps into it for storage.The wife has said i can have one dinnette seat storage area.It should hold a couple of buckets of dry goods and a box of can goods. Will be posting a few pics later just have a lot around the house to catch up on.

We got a camper!

   Well  me and the wife found a camper we could agree on.Its not new but it is an 06 in perfect shape and everything works perfect.

   It is a funfinderX that is 23 ft long but only weights 3340Lb so it is towable with my jeep.We have loved our travels in our teardrop but for long stays and parks with limited shower/bathroom facilitys it was rough on the wife (which made my life rough).So now we will be using both.

    When we go for over a week we will take the larger camper but for just 3 or 4 days we will be using the teardrop.We plan on taking the funfinder out to the lake in 2 weeks for a shakedown trip.Pulling something this size will take some getting use to and i had a few issues pulling it the 140 miles back home.My jeep sliped a little in and out of overdrive on flat ground so i had to switch it off  and  drive at 60mph droped gas milage to 11.That is to low it should have been 14 to 16 mpg, time to tune the motor and change the transmission fluid and add a cooler.The cost now will be recouped after 1200 miles so well worth it.
       My post 3 weeks ago was that we were lookig at a new camper I just could not do it.We do love the retro but we got this one for 5000 and it will last us for 5 to 10 years and still be sell it and recoup 2500 to 3500$ .You got to look at total cost and 300 a year in deprisiation is livable.Just for the record for years i saved change when i had the gas station at the end of shifts loose change went into a 5 gallon bucket.Last month i cleaned out my junk room and found i had 2 buckets of change the grand total at the bank was 5049.21 .I GOT A CAMPER!!
    PS  yes the tellers though i was a nut job!!!
