✶✶✶IN THIS VIDEO✶✶✶ Well we got a new trailer and it's very large. Our first shake down trip didn't go quite as planned, we had many problems. We don't let that get us down, in Big Bear California for the weekend with friends. We do some boondocking near Big Bear. While we are in the area we head over to the Alpine Zoo! They help rehab injured animals and give homes to orphaned one's. 90% of the animals brought in are released back into their natural habitats. We also take some time to visit with a good friend that moved into the area many years ago. He bought a house and has been living his dream, fishing, hunting and snowboarding. Hope you enjoy the video, let us know your thoughts on the new rig and the problems that we encounter.
Sorry for the re post, had this in the wrong catagory.. Hi all, My co-parent and I are giving up the tied down life style of a house and are looking at 5th wheels as an option. We both have looked at plenty of campers, brands, floor plans, etc.... Alot have asked this question in this forum so i'll be honest, our budget is around 20k, 30k being very generous. I understand the whole arctic/ four season packages will be to our advantage as is siding etc, but our biggest problem is an exact brand to look after, and like everyone else on the web we'll take our shot at listening to you guys from experience. I plan on keeping this topic active, and will respond asap! So, here goes, the notables: It will be for long-term living, placed in a nice sunny/warm south Dakota, currently reached above 0 degrees lol. looking for a bunk house style with a separate room for the kids, must have room for the 3 of them. A separate toilet would be nice, however 1 will suffice. Questions: Any brand one refers more than the other for cold weather? Any expert Hacks/ Tricks of the trade/ Knowledge of cold weather living... Is an rv car port a big help (cost wise in the end)? Thanks all in advance! q(*~*)p Monte
A really neat documentary is on the brink of being completed. Filmmaker, Eric Bricker, set out over 2 1/2 years ago with the idea of featuring Airstream as an architectural great of modern design, but through interviews and filming, he discovered that not only is Airstream an icon of the RV industry, it signifies adventure and a spirited lifestyle in American culture. When Eric released the movie trailer, I was grinning from ear to ear because I think he really "gets" what the nomadic lifestyle is all about. It is a great history lesson of all things Airstream, but more importantly, Airstream simply became the vehicle through which all these stories of fulltiming and adventures were told. This really is a celebration of life on the road, the simple things, and enjoying the present moment. He has the blessing of Airstream, and up until this point, was self-funded. He wants to keep this film independent, so as not to be labeled propaganda for the company. If you feel inspired to help support Eric Bricker complete this film, he has one week left on his Kickstarter campaign. You can watch the ALUMINATION trailer here: ALUMINATION, a feature-length documentary by Eric Bricker --Kickstarter Here are some cool articles that were recently written up on the documentary: Alumination is a Film Every RVer Will Want to Experience - RV Life Magazine Finally, Airstream Fanatics Have a Documentary - Men's Journal Talking Alumination with Eric Bricker - Airstream Disclaimer: I had the chance to meet Eric this past Thanksgiving. He is my brother-in law's sister's significant other. It was cool to hear about his journey and personal evolution with this film. Neat guy!
