Concur with this comment. Our current rig is 14 years old and one of the three slide outs did start leaking last year, but come on, it ha no problems for 13 years and only one leaked.

As the travel bug is biting, the itch is upon us. COVID-19 is getting so, so old. Where and how can we travel safely in this new year?

Salter describes the dusty town as a “magical place, probably one of the most magical on earth” and hoped I might have some […]
