Respectfully, OZ, I don't think this topic was intended to inform people of RV's for sale (a la TJ's List). I think it's supposed to be more of a fun thread... It's a nice change of pace from the common "My blah blah took a dump" type posts if I don't say!

It just so happens that all the RVs posted so far have been for sale, in one capacity, or another. The fact that it's posted in "RVs and Items For Sale" just adds to the confusion. It should've been posted in "General Discussion."

I see what you're saying.  Wasn't really sure what it was since the first one posted was for sale with the link and it was posted on the RVs FOR SALE... board.  I moved it to the general board.

I'm surprised the propane tank is still intact.
Title: Re: Post your "Really Ruff Winnebago and Vintage RV's" here....
Post by: Elandan2 on February 14, 2016, 07:52 AM
Here's a video of an RV fire. 
 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zSjZVlnKHg 
About halfway though, the propane tank begins venting just as it is designed to and the propane is simply burned off.  In a larger fire, (think train wreck or storage facility) the propane may boil too quickly to be vented off and you end up with a BLEVE (Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapor Explosion).  Thank goodness that doesn't happen often.  Rick

Post by: Rickf1985 on February 14, 2016, 11:56 AM
I have never seen an RV tank or a Propane powered vehicle tank blow. They just vent. Have been on many vehicle fires. Tires, on the the other hand do blow!


And by the way, gasoline tanks don't blow up either. They just leak out and get hotter and hotter. Movies are great for that one.

A reminder to keep your extinguisher up-to-date. I carry two in all my vehicles; a CO2 for my stuff that might be burning and a dry chemical for other people's stuff  ;)

For anyone who travels with there refrigerator operating on propane & forgets to turn off the fridge before refueling This is a very likely scenario as just fumes from filling can ignite from fridge flame Also applys to hot water tanks pilot flame oven or stove top even furnace  flame . The safest way to travel is with main propane valve closed  There is also the probability of a vibration created leak in propane or gasoline  Before fueling take a look around . Once the fire starts if you don't lose it all you will be very lucky !

Hey Froggy it was your posts on that subject that encouraged me to join this site. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge and experience. We are paying back by doing the same! We are really looking forward to this endeavor and even more to enjoying it when completed! I started an album documenting the journey. Take a look and see.

May be right, hood has a little point to it but it also has a lot of "nose" to it like a Ford.  Don't remember bottom door trim like that on a Chevy? Then again, I don't remember a LOT of things from the 60's and 70's. :-[ :-[ W% W% W%

"D" meant it was a Dodge chassis.  "18" "19" 20, 22, 23,24... is the length in feet.

I saw a Barth for sale the last two years at the Windgap Bluegrass festival in PA, not too far from you, you are in NJ?  If you're serious I'm sure you could track the guy down, it's not a very big community.

Yes Capn, the D-18 is the 18 footer. I'd like to put a 440 in one with hot exhaust and maybe a gear vendor. They only came with itsy bitsy 318's.

So did the "native american" designations also pertain to the same vehicles?  Like a D18 brave or a D20 Brave?

Yea the mascots....Somewhere out there is schematic showing the differences between Indian, Brave, Warrior, Chieftain etc. The early model Indians came with the 413ci, vs. Brave's had the 440 or 318ci, but option's also changed with size/length and drivetrain's too. So I really didn't answer your question? Kinda like a politician?  ???

Post by: uglydukwling on November 06, 2017, 08:48 AM
Your mention of "changing a tire" reminded me of a motor home (can't remember the make) that I looked at but didn't buy. The spare tire was slung under the back, pickup truck style. The problem was that a trailer hitch had been installed with the spare in place, and there was no way to get the spare off.

It's hitched up to a trailer, I wonder if someone is actually repairing it or if it is just a yard mule that they are also stripping for parts.

LOL!  Don't laugh.  Some of the hippy "kids" out here in Renfaire land live in squalor just like that, and worse.  It doesn't take any money to keep one's house clean and tidy.
