Jeff Considers a New Tow Truck!

If you are considering tow truck options and looking at maybe upsizing a little bit, join us as we go to the Portland Auto Show and see what they’ve got to offer for new vehicles. You can go online, you can–you know, you can visit the car dealerships and whatnot. But go to an auto show, and it’s all the brands in one place at one time. It’s a great place to look around at new options, and we’re looking forward to the trip.

Restoring a 1967 Travel Trailer

Mark Polk: Hi, I’m Mark Polk with RV Education 101. Several years ago, we restored a vintage 1967 Yellowstone travel trailer. Our goal with the restoration was to keep the original vintage look, but update it with modern day amenities found in today’s RVs. This is how we did it.

We found our restoration project sitting in a backyard, and we purchased it for $300. One important consideration when you purchase a vintage trailer like this is getting it home safely.

Well, there’s something you can do that can make starting up this fire a whole lot easier. There’s a really simple little tool you can make that helps you start a fire like this with one match every time. Let’s take a look.
