Could be, but he knew VTs. We sometimes run across people in OH who have worked on CTs, but this guy was able to answer questions I had about whether or not certain things about the privacy room in our VT were original or not, because he worked on them.

I was sorry when he did not stay active.

Hey, Thomas. Are you planning to get to the Algonac St. Park in eastern Michigan the first weekend in Sept.? There are already 3 UHauls signed up - 1 CT (Pam) and 2 VTs.

I discussed it with DW, but it looks like we will sit this out. We are more remote, boon dockers than social, state parks camping people. I hope you will post lots of pictures, though.

Original registration

Hey Tom,
Did your CT have a little plastic tube up under the left rear of the frame,
near to the rear bumper license plate area, which is enclosed in a short horizontal piece of pipe welded to the frame???


I discovered mine, quite by accident and curiosity, while poking around back under there and it had the original, as far as I can tell, UHaul registration.

Unfortunately, mine was tightly rolled up and when unrolled to read it, it came apart on me and some of it I cannot read. It does mentions Arizona as I recall. I made a copy, of what I could salvage, and put it back in there!

Yep, it has the original registration inside a plastic tube inside that little steel tube. I've left mine there for posterity, too.

After reading a post a couple years ago, I went looking for the tube on my VT, too. The tube is there but nothing was inside. Looks like my paperwork was lost somewhere on our VT's life-journey.

Interesting to think all UHaul went through dealing with the public and these rigs. If one was inclined, there are probably microfilm records of all these registrations somewhere... Sounds like your original registration might be securely in it's tube along side some Arizona highway!

UHaulcamper web site active again

For those who are unaware of the dedicated to UHaul only website
here is the link.

UHaulCamper.com • Index page

It has been inactive for many months, due to viruses,
but has been cleaned up and becoming active again.

Great historical archives and UHaul specific info over there for those
who own one or are interested in them (you do not have to own one to register)...

Of course, still maintain your FiberglassRV interest!!!

Yea, there are cobwebs in every door way. Quite a few people have joined over there in the last few days, though.

I can easily see people finding them and then getting channeled over here, as well.

Thanks, I'm sure our paths will cross at some point.

I've been adding posts to a few of the threads over there to give the place a little bit of a lived in look. If you care to do the same we may actually make the site functional. The software is a little clunky - it seems excessively difficult to add photos and every post has to be approved by a moderator.

Mr. Tom
As a 'volunteered' moderator (not sure how that happened???) I have addressed a PM to Mr. Jim, the administrator at HaulCampers.com, expressing concern over those 'issues'. Hopefully, he will reply soon. There should be a link to always approve members that are legitimate. I will tell you that there in a tremendous amount of spam, junk mail, etc. that attempts to post there mostly to insert their links...

Hey, we just make EVERYBODY a moderator and then no problem!
