RVs and trailers

We don't have a topic in wheels, that I can see for this subject.

I'm going to be in the market for a used camper trailer that has to
weigh 7000 pounds or less. Less is better.

I mentioned in another topic that I'm kind of in love with vintage
airstreams, though that may not be practical.

I'd be interested in hearing other peoples' experiences - the good and
the bad - with RV's pickup truck campers, 5th wheels and trailers.

Of course there are a lot of great old airstreams for sale. Talk bout
affordable housing. What a great way for a single person or a cozy
couple to live. Spartan is another trailer maker with great vintage
design and sensibility.

I like the Avion trailers and especially the pick up truck campers.
Here is a link to restoration of a 1969 Avion.

If I had a parcel of land I would find a vintage aluminum "camper" to
use there as a second home. Let me know if you come across some great
deals Frank.

I own five acres as in inholding in Winema national forest. The
neighbor who own the plot next to me just built a nice macadam access
road about 1 mile in from the highway and in exchange for me granting
him 15 feet of right of way on my property line he put in a gate and
sent me a key, so now it's private too. It's about 30 miles from the
north entrance ofcrater lake with a view of Mt. Theilson.

I also own 40 acres out near Jordan Valley in eastern oregon with a
(distant) view of the Owyhee canyon. That's desert though. You can
stand on a hill on my place and not see a tree from one horizon to th
enext.

The hillslook similar to the John Day formation and we have found lots
of fossils on the place.

I rode my Honda motorcycle from here to the CA coast last summer. I
went in land to Crater Lake. Would I have seen your mountain? Can't
recall it. But what a wonderful place you have for get-aways. And then
of course the Pacific coast. Have you heard of the builder of Teenie
Tiny houses in Sebastopol CA?

I came across his website some time ago. My wife is lobbying for me to
build her a mini retreat in the back yard. That stuff is way out of my
league for price though.

If you entered Crater Lake at the south entrance you probably did not
see Mt. Theilson, though it should be visible from some parts of the
rim drive, I don't know that I've ever looked for it from there.
