The RV...

When Lauren was just a toddler, we started referring to our VW Bus as "the RV".

Our bus is a 1971 camper.  We've owned it for probably 20+ years.  We're only the
third owners. The only thing that's not original on it are the curtains.  Even the front license plate is
the original one.  This is actually our second bus, we had another one exactly like this one,
but sold it to by our 73 Land Cruiser (hubby and Geoff went to mainland Mexico in that).

We didn't take it to Hawaii because of the rust problem (it would probably be rusted away by now).
So Hubby uses it to carry his OC 1 down to Dana Point Harbor.

The RV has been to Mexico plenty of times, we carry lots of extra parts...just in case.
Now the Grands love to ride up to the trash compactor with Poppa.  We can't take them
any farther because there are any seat belts in the back.  
Last year we took it down to San O and the kids loved it.  

the piece of metal coat hanger is what we use as an antenna

the water faucet for the sink (still works)

The closet has become a storage closet now.

The work table and the inside table are in perfect condition.

A 4 speed gear shift on the floor.

Hubby stores his canoe stuff inside

Just last week when Dane saw it,  he couldn't believe that we had a VW camper.
We know we could sell it pretty fast, but who wants to?  Not us.
We love our RV
