The Good, Bad and a RV Museum

The Good - Got a call from the Dodge Dealer earlier telling me the truck was done and all was good, Woo Hoo!!! Went down picked it up, drove around for a bit and headed home. The Bad - That's when it happened, began running rough and then the check engine light comes on.....really!!!, did I just not get it out of the shop.....arrrrrrrrrrrr. Well I head back to the dealer and turn it in. Ok, get a call from the dealer and they tell me it is a bad fuel injector and they'll have it done in the morning. With any luck that'll fix the problem, I guess they could not get it to throw the code and they thought all was well. Looks like it was a good thing it happened again before I left for OKC, at least I know it will be fixed this time.

 After picking up the truck today, I stopped by the a local RV dealer, just to see what they had, yea, I was board. While there I found out they had a RV Museum, the owner had begun collecting and restoring old RVs and now opened his collection to the public. He also has this 1940 replica gas station, very well done.

 This is a 1976 Airstream he painted (I know, that's just wrong) white with red and blue stripes in tribute to our military (so I guess the paint is ok).

In all he had 13 RVs, most were travel trailers and he also had a couple of old motorhomes. It was pretty cool to see all the old RVs and nice to know someone is actually restoring them to their former glory.

Tomorrow, (fingers crossed) I'll be headed for OKC, really didn't mind the stop over in Amarillo (except for missing Easter) had it been under better circumstances.

So cross your fingers and we'll be seeing you fine folks from OKC. Take Care and Keep Lovin Your Life as we do ours (even if it is tried once in a

Good thing you did a road test on the truck, you'd think the dealer would have done that. Hope the injector fixes the trouble.

Yes, you really have to give back the Jeep...

It's always fun to look at those old retro RVs.

Hope your truck is finally fixed.

Glad to know that your RV was already fixed. I think it’s pretty cool that the RV dealer has an RV museum. Those vintage RVs are definitely worth keeping. They all have a unique beauty that is very different from the modern RV that you usually see nowadays.

Impressive! The museum looks so cute. I noticed that vintage RVs were way smaller than the ones today. I really like the idea of bringing back that old gas station. It reminds me of those old 70s movies!

I wish I could visit that place to see that lovely museum of RVs. I love seeing vintage RVs restored and preserved in their full glory. We have one vintage RV in our garage; it’s actually a small travel trailer. My father used it during his younger days. I totally love it and I made some renovations on it to make it look like new.
