Hi, I'm Stephanie, pleased to digitally meet you!
I'm going to ask some questions, and then, if you feel like reading more, I'll tell you about myself. I've lurked on this website for a few years learning about and looking for a lightweight camper that my Subaru outback could pull, that was in pretty good shape, and that I could afford. I figured I'd have to travel to get one, but last year I purchased a 1973 Hunter Camper II right in my Montana town that met my requirements. It is about 10 feet long and perhaps 8 feet wide, and the Suby pulls it without a problem. It came with 2 cracked but working solar
panels, but my housemate thought they were too broken to work and threw them away. Well at least he was tidy. Can someone tell me what to get to replace them? They are to charge an EverStart Plus 400W USB 3.1A with a replaceable fuse. (See picture below.) Apparently they worked pretty well, because the electric lights
in the camper still turn on 10 months later! Also, does anyone have a manual for this kind of camper or a similar model? I'd be happy to pay for getting a photocopy or a .pdf of a scan of the manual. Thank you!
I'm a retired art professor. My big retirement project has been starting a community letterpress print studio. People can come to our print events and print for fun, or they can rent the studio inexpensively and use our presses to print their own items. Unfortunately, we're on an ongoing Pandemic hiatus. I can't imagine how we'd sanitize all the lead and wood type and spacing materials if we had to! My partner in the project and I just printed a broadside (poster) for a project that is on GoFundMe now. Our broadside will be a premium for people who donate $100 or more to the project. She
will be a documentary on the work of poet Aimée Baker, whose poetry deals with women who are the victims of violence, cold cases, or missing. Every year over 300,000 women go missing in the U.S. She
has grown from a short, 10-15 min pandemic project by filmmakers Jason Greer and Vanessa Ciccarelli to a full length documentary film with actor Kate Mulgrew narrating (Mulgrew was Captain
Janeway on Star Trek, and is the cook on Orange is the New Black
), and actor Raven Goodwin (on New Girl, Glee, Lovely and Amazing
, and many more) voicing the poems. So, that's about me and what I'm up to.
The camper is for adventures with my dog, the Great Garbowski, aka, Garbo. I didn't choose her name to honor the beautiful, talented star of 1950's film, but because it means "kind." I suspect Greta Garbo chose her stage sur-name for the same reason. My Garbo is kind, companionable, and very beautiful.
I envision us camping, hiking, exploring, and one of us napping while the other one draws, sketches, does watercolors, and reads. Thanks for all the information you have already shared with us.
