        I very much enjoyed doing the restoration on My old camper. it now is better than when it was first built.
        I did do a restoration on the windows too. a total dismantle, cleaning and lube the actuators, the ones I could get apart.
        I have spent several nights in the camper, My main use for it is winter and sleep in it when fishing on the ice. Now with this crap going on with the heart thing the sons and wifey do not want Me going out alone so I guess My fishing days is about done.

              I had a pop up camper many years ago, and me, my ex and beagle dog dragged that thing ALL OVER the northeast! We had a blast in that little camper. I miss those trips! Cool way to travel, comfortable bed, good eats instead of road food, and a couple of hours around a campfire with the hound snoring a away nearby before turning in at night. Good times....

                  Fresh out of high school. I had a 67 GMC with a topper on it. My first ex wifey and I practically lived out of that thing. cooking on a pumpup camp stove and fuel lanterns for light. Pulling a small trailer hauling a dirt bike for exploring. Thems was some mighty good times.

                                That model x is cool or I am really getting old , or both .. We have had several tag a longs thru the years , one required some "work" , and a couple Time Outs that we drug behind the Tour Glide and Road Glide ..
                                Even had a Class A (used mind you ) , heck of a deal on the A , but man those are money pits if there ever was . Harleys , and bass boats are much cheeper to play with ..
