    That's awesome, sikocycles! Thanks for posting the photos. I really enjoy seeing the restoration.

    Thank you for all the kind works. A lot of blood sweat and tears went into the build. Took a little under 2 years.
    We wanted it ready for Memorial Day 2020 but everything was closed. So first time out was at Ray Town Lake in PA 4th of July week.
    We were in a sea of 30 footers but our camper got most of the attention.

    I love the looks of that. I would love to have a little camper like this to drag around when it isn't convenient or practical to take our 28 footer.

    Sounds good. I almost bought a few airstreams and probably will do once I find the right size and price to restore. My friends are big in the Airstream community and does all the festivals.

    can confirm. I was just up there this morning before the snow hit. Lots of new trails for our bouncy-bike, knobby-tire brothers and sisters.

    I know DIY is all the rage here, but this new one from Winne is pretty awesome:

    Hard to think of something out of the box that would work so well for my needs.....or maybe it's just the marketing..

    Dan that's real nice. Does anyone recall who made the campers shown at last year's Philly Bike Expo. There were incredible.

    Almost double the cost though. I don't think I need 4x4 to drive to places where I want to ride my road bike.
