Movum out, rawhide...crack

I'm a full timer and a traveling artist, so…

Since 2003, I have put 102,000 on my 1995 28' Classic.


The secret, 3 sets of tires, 7 bearing repacks, 3 sets of brakes and magnets, water pump, refrigerator, city water inlet, toilet rebuild, tongue repaint, new rear bumper draw, new propane regulator and lines. Skylight, all new vent covers, stove exhaust cover, replace all caulking, front end repair, new driver side awning. That’s just the big stuff. I have a maintenance log 6 pages long. Ya, just gotta keep at it!



Michael

We got our 1965 Caravel in 2000. We have hauled about 80,000 miles. In 2003 we spent 223 nights in our little chrome home. It is importane to use the trailer often and fix anything that goes wrong ASAP. Keep the wheel bearings packed, the door hinges lubricated, and most of all, keep the belly pan down and the shiney side up!

Thank's for the tip on the door hinges Jim, have yet to lube them...we haven't put that many miles on Molly yet...our longest trip was to Northern Idaho 3,000+ miles....lots of in state trips...I have done the berrings since several trips here in Co, durring spring, can be hard on the rolling stock...

Since last year almost to the day we have gone just about 10,000 miles. RVing across America from NJ to Montana and then down to New Mexico and Texas and back to the east coast as well as a few local (well east coast trips). Hopefully, we will get to do another 10K in 2008..

Since '04 with the Airstream just under 11,000 miles so far and this was a slow year with minimal travel. Hope to double the above number next year. We have a lot of pent up travel plans waiting to be taken care of.

It took us our entire first year to do a mere 4000! Just can't keep up with you full-timing galavanters.
In the meantime we love 'traveling' with everyone who writes on-the-road posts. Our favorites!

This summer we did 9 States (10,000 miles) in our 77 Argosy. Upon returning home we left for Florida to pickup our 03 Safri. Did over 1500 miles back to Texas. We go out in our Safri at least twice a month. Planning a 3 month trip to the NW this summer.
