Spring Glampout

Monday it's off to Lost Dutchman SP near Apache Junc. AZ. 3 nights, no hookups.
This one of our fav. places and the inspiration for the mural on 2K4S.

Short run about 230 miles but lots of climbing to get home.

Awesome! Can't wait to see the pics!

Have I mentioned how AWESOME you and Mary's paint job is? I love that mural.

Too bad I'm away for work. That's about 15 minutes or so from the house......

That paint job is very attractive. Most self done paint jobs looks kind of hippy in nature but yours looks nice.

I was wondering if you changed the configuration on your bus windows or you selected something different? It looks like regular bus windows but one window appears to be tipped out at the bottom. Is that a hinged bus window, or just a window of a similar size?

Thanks, there are 2 windows with screens, maybe that's what you're seeing.

That's probably it. In the photo it appeared to my blurry eyes that the top half of your bus window was swung out at the bottom. I'm getting to where I'd really like the idea of some bug screens. A couple warm days and the yellow jackets were already coming in the top hatch, not to mention waking up in the morning to find mosquito bites on my noggin.

This build is a process, kind of like trying to stamp out a forest fire with your feet.

Home from a very nice campout. No pics, this is one of our fav. places so lots of previous ones.

No hookups and the Plannar heater and the Pinnella gen. fuel kit worked perfectly. Enough sun for the solar panels even though it was quite cloudy.

Does your planar have a thermostat on it to control the heat or is it a manual turn on/off unit? I've been struggling with deciding on that or a webasto. Would like the planar bc I can get a bigger unit for a smaller price but don't want it running constantly if it doesn't.

Yes, our Plannar 44D does have a thermostat. It reads in C but that's easy to decipher.
I really like it but also hope it never needs service. Sips fuel, quiet and no smell.
