    Camping with kids

    Daddy time

    We went to Camping World today just to walk around the accessories section. The kids wanted to walk around and look at campers so we did just to burn some time. I was disgusted on the inventory of used units, windows taped up, tapes across cracks on the windows, half the campers looked like the...

    Door Piece

    Ok, so I know what the part is but Jayco does not make it anymore. The only thing that they can do is send me a new style door that with how mine is set up will not work. I am going to run by the metal fab shop today to see if they can repair it, but if anyone has one or sees one let me know...
