how do you pay for your vintage rv addiction
« on: March 19, 2019, 02:01 PM »
I usually buy and sell cars and trucks to make extra cash to pay for my obsession.
if you have a retro rv you need to be handy like everyone here. we have skills! this video shows how I pay the bills on the rv : https://youtu.be/3mmP1zLH_JM
  but I am always interested in learning from other knowledgeable people.  so how do you do it?  thanks everyone!

I tried putting on a dress and standing on a street corner.  Being the very large hairy dude that I am, it didn't work out very well for me.   W% W% W% W% W%

First, I own http://www.adventurepowersports.us


Then, how I save money is that I make many of the parts I use.  I have a full machine shop so I fabricate many of my projects along with doing all my own work.


Time.  I have had my coach for 23 years.  I just pick on a couple of projects a year.  Spreads it out quite a bit.

You mean 'vintage rv', right? Retros are new, made to look 'vintage.'

I pay for mine by not taking the family on vacations except in the RV.   Flights for 5, rental car for a week, meals (ok we still eat out mostly), but hotel rooms not rented!, add up fast every time we take a trip.
