Hello From NJ
1 Attachment(s)
Bought a 1999 rockwood 25' this year Rebuilt the floor, new lino,New back wall in bathroom and new bathroom ceiling and new electronics in the refrig. All because the owner before me did not a thing to the roof Was missing a plumbing vent and the refrig vent top Re did the sofa and the dinette and custom build window valances,and hung mini blinds Used this now 5 times this year and just love it I have been a RV Tech for 23 years and always said I would never own one Well I guess you never say never. Hate to put it away for the winter. So over the winter months it will get new tires and new brakes And just wait for the camping season to start again.

Welcome to the forums! Your trailer looks nice with all the work you have done in it. It's hard to believe that many RVers camping days are ending as we here in SoCal is waiting for it to cool down a bit so we can really enjoy camping.

Being a RV tech must come in handy for sure.

Wow! Looks awesome! We are just getting our new to us trailer and I am bummed because I guess it is the end of the season here. We are going to try and use ours through Thanksgiving....hoping that is not too late. When do you plan to winterize? I see you are from my same area.

Thank You Cyn61. A lot of work and time in this one This is our 1st Camper But I enjoyed every minute of it I think our last trip this year Will be next week But you never know. I gonna wait till the last week of Oct. or 1st week of Nov This way if we do decide to go again I won't have to dewinterize Just don't wait to long I have done some after Thanksgiving The heat had to be on so the water won't freeze When I blew them out. I like to blow them out with air till the water lines are dry. Then I can get away with a gallon of anti-freeze some in the traps and run some thru the pump Any questions you have I will more then glad to help If I can
