This page I wrote for my old rv website before developing the Vanabode as the best travel vehicle for cheap easy long term road trips. People still like big rv's despite the much greater cost and trouble to operate, so here's what I know about them.

Picture of 1981 Citation 25' travel trailer

This is a picture of the trailer before major dismantling. The roof was underway, but the rest was still intact.

These pictures are the first in the series of the rebuild project. This whole thing started out as a leaky roof repair and to fix one soft spot in the bathroom. I did, however, spend one night in it working out of town before I tore it apart.
