    I love it, that's a great rig! The fireplace is pretty cool, does it put out much heat?

    That's fantastic! I love the "wood paneling" on the sides! Swank-O-Matic is right!

    Nice job of matching the Buick's paint colour and wood grain to that of the trailer. What year is that? 96?

    oh, the trailer is nice too. :)

    That is one very cool setup. You did a great job and the fireplace is a nice touch. [CP]

    Don't forget the glitterball to go with Barry White.

    That is pretty good looking. I am hopefully going to go and look at a '72 Ramada tonight.

    Yours gives me some good ideas on the refurb if I pick this one up. Thanks for sharing.

    Funny you should mention that......
    But really, we do have a couple of matching 50's/60's "Flying Saucer" fixtures that are about the same size as the existing white plastic camper lights. Mwa-hahahaha!
    Cheers,
    Slick

    Hey All.... I wanted to thank everybody for all the great comments!

    PM me if you have any questions about what or how...... I'll be happy to e-mail each and every one back.

    I have to say.......I've had a few vintage trailers before, big ones...... '55 Silverdome, '53 Anderson, '54 Spartan..
    But we have much more fun with our Apache! So easy to work on, so easy to tow, SO EASY TO SET UP!

    Holler at me if you need to, OK? :)

    Thanks Again!
    SLICK

    Do it! Do it! Do it! Of course I have a jukebox in my pink living room and a soda machine by the front door so my judgment might be slightly off. I'm trying to keep myself from repainting our NTU Dutchmen Volvo Arctic White when I restripe it to match our TV's.
