My wife and I just bought a '73 ECO
12' egg, She decided we weren't sleeping in the back of the truck anymore, and I decided we weren't banging around in some big awkward beast, I do enough of that driving a semi for work.
It's a solid old beast, but suffering from years (decades???) of serious neglect, the trailer hadn't moved in ~7 years, and nobody can remember the last time it was actually used.
Other than a slightly sprung door seal, its quite well sealed, TOO well sealed in fact.
I've got a handle on rebuilding the "trailer" part, already have redone the tires
bearings, redoing the wiring right now.
The RV part (furnace, fridge
,hotel power) is proving a little more problemmatic
, but more on that later.
Anyhow, a little background on us, we're fairly young (23), just got married last March, but have been traveling the country together for almost 5 years. I'm an interstate truck driver for United Van Lines (the mover folks), and she's a business student and manager at Wal-Mart. We've traveled all over the western US, and really love going "off the map", so to speak, traveling byroads, backroads, and no roads to get from here to there.
Look forward to learning about our new toy, and learning about you all.
