    Camper time!!!

    Got us a travel trailer!

    2006 Fleetwood Pioneer 180ck












    Some old dude bought it from our store new in 06, and apparently never used it because it is spotless inside and out. Everything works perfectly and the only thing it needed was tires as they were dry rotted and seperating from being parked. I went ahead and bumped up to 15" wheels and tires to get a little lift out of it, and got chrome ones to match my truck....ok, thats all they had at the time but I dig them. Anyway, we got it back in Oct and have used it a few times, but it has been a cold winter so we are done until it warms up.

    Oh, and in the pic the center caps are missing, they didnt have any when I put them on but they are one there now. Looks cool, hehe.....

    The TV is supposed to go above the table, but that shelf just inside the door there is where we put our little flatscreen, and we fold down the table into a bed to watch movies. I put a surround sound system in already with an ipod/aux input so we can jam out when we go down to the beach. It is going to be a blast!!!

    Cozy looking Fleetwood. I had a 22' for 8 years and didn't have a stitch of trouble with it. Re the TV, I got 2 12V 19" flat screens for my rig from 12volt-travel.com and can play them anywhere without hookup or running a generator. I also increased my battery power by putting in 2 Group29's in parallel.

    Good luck and happy trails!

    A couple of good websites to get acquainted with are:
    www.campingworld.com
    www.12volt-travel.com


    Maybe I'll see you on the highway sometime...

    When I was little we had a pop up tent trailer that we towed behind the Buick Estate. Through the big back windows at the very rear of the wagon my brother and I watched the miles drop away behind us as we traveled Canada from coast to coast. I hope your family has as many good times as mine did on those summer adventures.

    That's essentially the same floor plan I had on my Coachmen 19flb. I really miss my travel trailer, but I sold it to buy a house. No regrets....but I knew I wouldn't get as much use out of it, if I kept it.

    That's a nice looking camper!

    On mine I mounted my LCD TV where your mirrored-door closset is at.

    Rv.net is a good website too.

    Congrats! Unlucky me I can take out my trailer 'til summer. One thing I did to mine is I put better lighting in it so we don't have to eat in the dark. Happy Camping!

    Yea, we usually leave the littlest one at my moms and the biggest one the neighbors tend to, but the other three have gone with us the 4 times we
    have gone out and it was great.

    Wife's good, she still pops in here and there but doesnt post like she used to..

    Good idea, I was looking at some replacement bulbs that are LED's and put out a brighter white light rather than the dull yellow from standard bulbs.

    Nice rig Shadams. One thing I always love (and laugh at) with caravans (yes, that is what they are really called ) are the wood veneer fridges. Classy!
