Sportsmobile Squeaky Roof.

This is just the latest in things that have gone wrong with this @SportsmobileWest Penthouse Top instal. It just never ends. God, what a mistake it was to have the roof cut off my van and have this seemingly reputable company instal this roof. I had no idea there are are hundreds of other people complaining about their similar problems too. And the company is still, of course, completely unapologetic about their shoddy workmanship.

What they need is a good Class Action against them.

 

Thor is buying Erwin Hymer & RoadTrek. Hymer, you SUCK.

I totally called it. A year and a half ago when Hymer rolled off their first piece of shit Class B van that was literally falling apart, brand new in the Camping World parking lots… I knew they wouldn’t last. They bought RoadTrek so that they could use the Canadian facility to build their piece of shit vans. And because their vans are such shit, and nobody is buying them, and there are still 2017 leftovers, they lost their shirts. It certainly did not help that they started building the beloved RoadTreks like they built their Sunlight V1, V2, and the rediculous Carado line. RoadTrek was a quality brand before Erwin Hymer Group bought them. Hopefully, Thor Industries Inc. will spare the brand and keep them rolling off the line, as a cheaper alternative to their already acquired Airstream Class B “Interstate” vans. Either way, EcoTrek may suffer, and so will current owners of the technology.

If Erwin Hymer Group would have put out some good products, people would’ve actually bought them, and this never would’ve happened. And of course, people are still waiting for their crazy-gorgeous, light-weight, European fiberglass campers – that will never come, LOL, but not actually funny.

Thor: Don’t make owners of the fairly new EcoTrek suffer! Offer support even if you nix the technology, which is your perogative.

Here is my original video from a Crappy Camping World of the Hymer Sunlight V1 Van One. Disgraceful fit/finish.

 

Wyoming & BLM are killing wild horses.

(Please share this. I almost  never ask readers to share my content, but this is an exception.)

This YouTube video link was from just last week. It was taken by me from my camper van, in Wyoming, of the wild Mustangs that are being rounded up and removed to make way for cattle grazing. (I have nothing against cattle grazing.) Baby horses are being killed and no one is exactly sure what BLM is doing with the adult horses that they are catching. By the way, they are using helicopters to run the horses down into exhaustion before either they die or are pulled into the trap trailers. And of course, the strong ones are then continually harassed by a riders on horseback (the irony) until they also, fall from exhaustion. Most Americans don’t even know that this is happening.

*I have been a huge BLM supporter and avid camper of BLM land all over our beautiful country. My entire RV/Boondocking/Nomad/VanLife lifestyle will now change, as I will no longer support or stay on BLM land again, nor will I continue to volunteer for trash cleanup on BLM land as long as this is happening in Wyoming.*

BLM, State of Wyoming- WTF are you thinking??  You need to stop this horrific treatment of Americas wild horses and burros.

The Dressmaker Movie

So I’m laying here in the loft of the sportsmobile pop-top of my camper van. I have spent the whole day up here having a completely lazy day, watching movies on my iPad  and looking out the plastic windows enjoying and appreciating the beautiful scenery all around me. (I mean, who knew…? Nebraska?!). I just finished watching “The Dressmaker“ and holy sh*t. I had no idea. The trailers did not do this movie justice. I mean… I expected it to be average like most every other movie I see… But no. I already said “holy sh*t“, right? Yeah. So… um… It’s one of the best movies I’ve ever seen in my whole life. I am completely surprised and shocked and saddened and humbled and proud… and a bunch of other feelings  I have no words for. I had no idea. Why isn’t everybody talking about this movie?  Was everybody talking about it when it came out a few years ago? Where was I? Has everyone seen this movie? If you’re reading this and you have not seen this movie, go by the DVD, watch it on Amazon Prime, buy it from Vudu or Movies Anywhere or rent it from wherever you buy or rent your digital movies- Just get it and watch it. I insist.
