The Travel Queen

Russ and I and our friends Sean and Mollie are now proud owners of a 1977 Travel Queen Motor Home with a 1990 Dodge Cummins diesel engine.  If you are a regular follower of our blog you can probably guess what that diesel engine means to us....
It will soon be converted to run on vegetable oil!
Enjoy the 1977 interior in the pictures alone because it has already been taken out as the remodel of the interior has begun.  We all know that Russ doesn't do anything halfway.  So very soon we will be traveling in comfort and in style.  I will update pictures throughout the process and details about the upcoming adventures we are planning to have in the travel queen!

Your eyes don't deceive you- that is a wood burning stove.
The man we bought it from also installed solar panels to
run all of the electricity.  It will be a grease solar machine!

The fishing fly wall paper is not going to last much longer.

It will soon have 4 twin size beds in this area.
In order to get the old and broken refrigerator out of 
the motor home Russ had to cut it in pieces.  He learned 
that freon is combustible. This video is not sped up...
He can move fast!!!!!!!
