The complete restoration of a 1958 Stanley travel trailer makes this week’s video of the week.
This 10 minute video will take you on a journey as a classic that was all but forgotten is given a second chance at life. It’s stripped down to nothing then reassembled with remarkable precision.
I consider this a testimony to all the do-it-yourselfers out there who aren’t afraid of a little hard work. Old trailers need not be thrown away and used for scrap, sometimes they just need a makeover.
It’s been an interesting couple of years for the economy in North America. It wasn’t that long ago that downsizing held the market share off news headlines as millions of Americans and Canadians lost their jobs. Times were bleak and the word recession was often used to describe the situation.
Thankfully those times are moving behind us now, as the economy picks up. Let’s take a look at just how well the RV market is bouncing back.
I’ve been thinking a lot recently about some different ways to improve the blog and I’ve finally settled on one of the improvements. We’re going to start showing a video of the week!
Each week, we’ll post a camping-related video that we feel is of real value to our readers. This week’s will be a tough one to beat. It’s about an amazing builder/engineer who built his own fifth wheel from scratch!
One of the things that I try to do every year is plan our family camping trips and reserve the campsites early in the season. I rarely succeed at this, but it’s the thought that counts right?
Have you ever tried sleeping in a tent that is on a slope? I have and I can tell you that I didn’t get a decent night’s sleep. So learn from my experience and book early. Here are some tips to help you get the jump on your planning.
Most of us remember to change the batteries in our household smoke alarms on a regular basis. If you’re like me, it’s because the smoke alarm lets out an annoying beep every few minutes when the battery gets low.
The luxury in that is that you are in your home all year round, so you are likely to hear it. If you happen to store your RV for the winter, and your battery dies during storage, then you aren’t likely to hear the beeping when you prep your RV for the season.
