Smashed headlight and broken air lines from hitting a deer? Am thinking a quick trip to a Napa or TSC store for some bolt on fog lights and some airline and fittings.... A couple hours later, I am motoring on with my vacation.

Warranty? In all of my 52 yrs, I have only owned one vehicle that had a warranty and it needed it... POS 1998 Dodge Dakota (NEVER again).

Nice pics from along the way, thanks.

Wonderful time, not one “oh,schit” moment where some dumbass cut me off badly. Dumbasses going around you on the left to quickly cut you off as they take the next exit are normal. Gawd forbid I take five seconds out of his day.

I don't think he wanted to risk it, kind of need brakes in the mountains. He is the type that wouldn't trust a patch job.

We were in our big ass TT (luckily in our own backyard) this weekend, and started smelling a burning plastic smell when the A/C blower was activated. I climbed the ladder onto the roof, and started dis-assembleing the A/A unit in 95* direct sun. We got real lucky that it was only the 120V power supply, and not the whole control board. A couple of cuts, some wire skinning, and 3 wire nuts (to match the factory prep), and we had A/C again, and gained our low fan speed back again...it hadn't been working all year.

You need a big ass air horn, preferably from a tug boat.

Zeke, believe me, its something I'm looking at, around 150 dB ought to do the trick.

Tabs, I'll put it on the list, Alpine Springs Water, that's funny, but probably true.

or a train

You have room to mount it on top, just sayin'

People just do not have a proper appreciation of basic physics. What does that bus weigh, 25, maybe 30 thousand pounds, how far does it take that thing to go from 60 mph to stopped, probably 600 feet, more than that maybe, not a real sporty handling thing either.

I always figure it is better to have a rig like that in front of me

Coming home from three days at Carpenteria State Beach, stopped at a place for lunch this idiot tried to squeeze into a spot between me and another vehicle.

Scratched all the way along the side of my new RV and smashed the mirror.

At least he worked for a company that appears to have insurance.

Newer and better picture below. I think they are going to have to pay to repaint the entire left slide out (like 20' long), its all paint, not decals.

Better picture,

Toby, its heavy, but ONLY 20,000 lbs. or so. Still takes distance to haul it down. I leave LOTS of space between me and them..

So sorry to see that happen to your new coach Hugh.

What a stupid move trying to squeeze in there. Hope their insurance covers it for you.


Afterburn, is that scenic cruiser yours now? Sure been looking for long enough now. I hope you found the one you've been searching for.

Cheers Richard

Only 10 tons, that is like five 914's, you could almost auto cross that thing.

That vintage one is cool, it would be totally boss if you did the whole thing in polished aluminum

Allright Afterburn, whats the details. Is it converted to a RV interior?

Did you find it close to home? It does look alive, as in not just pulled out of the weeds and a long slumber.

Standing by for any pics and details you care to share.

Cheers Richard
