You are doing great. I have no Italian so I really appreciate your extra effort.

Your camp looks sandy.

Does it get hot there?
Is that why there are shades?</blockquote>

Thank you, Susy, for confirming the size information. Your description of the construction technique make sense; it starts with the colour layer we usually call a "gelcoat", it seems that a "chopper gun" is used to add the glass fibre, and Lander apparently heated the body parts in a furnace to cure them. I don't think that parts are heated for curing here.

My trailer is a 17-foot (or 17') Boler, like the ones shown in the Boler Album; a photo of my own trailer is shown in my post in the Show Us Your Rigs topic. I think it is very much like the Lander 401, although I prefer the Lander's shape. Also, my Boler has an axle with leaf springs, not like the independent suspension of the Landers and most Bolers.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

The capalbio's camping is on the beach... it is beautiful but in Italy there aren't many good camping...
In Italy there are many possessory of roulotte that they do not travel (the italian's word is "STANZIALI"), becaus the italian's peoples is very lazy... hehehe!!!

I instead travel very with mine caravan... in Europe and in Italy and in the 31 december I and many others friends of teh epocaravan's forum together will meet to celebrate the new year in a camping to Orbetello in Tuscany on the beach...

Sorry Mike, were I can see the pictures of the your caravan?

bye rob

Rob,

Are there any in your group who could come to the Oregon Gathering in Bandon, OR on July 19-22? There will be over 100 fiberglass units there.

I can only offer a tent and air bed.

You would certainly win the prize for coming the most miles. Would be interesting to see if your bottle of wine won the wine tasting competition.

Here are a few photos of my Casita. My wife and I try to go camping at least once a month on what we call “Date Weekend”. We also take two or three 2 week vacations during the year.

Here are probably more photos then you wanted.
