RE: My Chevrolet Express van Class B- camper

HI Mike, nice to see you posting, and that cornhole game looks like the way to go when you need to keep it small. My wife has been wanting one so we will take a look at it. I added a cargo carrier, and I made a swing out bracket so I can get into the back doors without unloading it, will post pictures soon. Do you have any camping plans for the summer? we won't go camping until mid Sept. and then we can go anytime in the Fall into late Spring.

Any Van people out camping

Checking in to see if anyone has been out camping in their vans. We just got back from a few days of camping at Union Creek, Oregon, it is near Crater lake NP. this a USFS campground Farewell Bend with water and flush toilets and the weather was great. We did a few walks to see the Rogue Gorge and check out another near by CG. ( we have been going to this area since 1965 and we love it their, only 90 minutes from home ) This is our third trip this year and the first with the new high top and it great to have it.

RE: My Chevrolet Express van Class B- camper

HI Mike, It's great that you can stay up on the scooter! I have never tried one. We are going camping this Tuesday up near Crater Lake NP. the van is almost packed and ready to go. We sold our trailer last week, so the van is our home on wheels now. Jay

RE: Where is EVERYONE??

Got out to the hot springs w the wife in our recently acquired van. It was very pleasant near 70F, few campers, and no issues. Pretty good for a late March trip in Central Idaho. cptqueeg, what van did you get? how about some pictures. 70f in Idaho is great time to be camping, been to Idaho several time and always love it. It's a winnie revel, based on a swb sprinter. The previous owner made some real nice upgrades, including doubling the lithium battery banks. The funny thing since that trip in March we've had below normal temps and more snow than Jan, Feb and March combined. Woke up to a fresh inch this morning! Pictures are a challenge on this board, but hope to figure it out someday.I googled your van and it looks great and is it 4 wheel drive ? that would be a plus for Idaho. For pictures I go to Click and select and that will let you get the pictures from your computer, have your pictures sized to 640x 480 in JPG file before you do this. Looking forward to seeing your van pictures.

RE: Where is EVERYONE??

I like your high top. I,originally, kept with the low top because that is the only kind that would fit in my heated garage. But now that we have moved to the big city and I have found a heated storage garage for my camper van and Corvette, I finally have the overhead space to store it. I may have to look into converting mine to a high top too. It would be really nice to be able to stand up in it. Not sure how my roof rack, water storage tube, and NAPA awning would fit on a high top though. Keep posting pictures because I love to see what others have done, especially to GM vans. Had to add a high top because of my bad back and it make a difference even for the short standing area. The high top is a molded fiberglass ( like a fiberglass boat ) I have a Casita trailer and it's molded fiberglass and it has a awing on it with no problems at all. I don't know how it will handle your roof rack and water storage tube, you would have to check with the manufacture for that. I will post pictures when I finish the build and that might be sometime in the summer as I have other things to get done first, but will still beable to go camping . Good to see you posting . Jay

RE: My Chevrolet Express van Class B- camper

HI Mike, good to see you posting again and I know that you have moved and that is a lot of work. We have lived in this house for almost 42 years and I have started to get rid of things too. It was nice to take your wife out for Mother's Day camping. I got a high top put on my van and just getting the rebuild about done, love that we can stand up in it and the extra storage that we got with it. Go over and check out my postings from yesterday to see the pictures of the new top and rebuild. Hope that you get to do some more camping this spring. Jay

RE: Where is EVERYONE??

Looks great... you'll love being able to stand up in it. john 'I am Canadian' I all ready love standing up in it, started my rebuild and it's easier to do the work standing up. It's been a long time since we have been to Canada and hope to go in 2023.

RE: New RV park comming to Grants Pass Oregon

If it’s not on the Rogue, I’m not interested. It's not on the Rogue! but it may make more room at another RV park that's on the Rogue for you. If we don't get some more snow pack in the mountains the river will be very low this summer.

New RV park comming to Grants Pass Oregon

The Grants Pass Planning Commission’ approved a plan for a new 120-space RV park. The park would be on NE Greenfield Road, north of I-5. It plans on installing a swimming pool, storage units, pickle ball courts and even a wine room. the work should be completed in a year, or so and the approval is expected February 9.

RE: Where is EVERYONE??

Still here but been busy and not been up to posting,back problems and the passing of my best buddy ( Corgi Border Collie mix )who loved to go camping and anyplace that I went. Taking the van on a 275 mile trip north to get a high top ordered and installed when it comes in, than do a new build out. We did a few trips last year to the coast and mountains and so far this year we gone to the coast with more trips coming. Sorry to hear about your lost. I lost my travel companion of 15 years last November. Border Collie Rottweiler cross. The last couple of years I have had to stay close to home as her travel time was over. Arthritis in the hips made travel painful for her. Photomike, thank for the kind words and I'm sorry to hear about your lost and It's hard to go anywhere without thinking of my dog. She also had arthritis in the hips and was on pain meds for over a year, she also died from a bad liver ( cancer ). Her last trip with us camping was in Oct.21 and died Jan 7th 22. https://i.imgur.com/xU61zhhl.jpg]https://i.imgur.com/xU61zhhl.jpg Sorry to hear about your friend. She’s beautiful. Thank You Reisender for the nice words, I miss her everyday, the house fells so empty without her.
