The Old Dodge Lodge

We bought our 1995 Pleasure Way, Dodge Lodge in July, 2003, from Pedens and sold our Chevy Van privately. This camperized van offered the advantage of burning gasoline for fuel which was a more reliable way of refueling. But we continued to use the little book that recorded the fuel stops. The cushions of the back seat were rearranged into a single bed. We had a bathroom that emptied into the campsite dumps when the tanks were full. The table was put up for meals and put away for travel. There was a 3 way fridge, sink and two burner propane stove.
We traded our 1995 Pleasure Way Dodge Lodge for the newer 2000 wide body Pleasure Way Dodge Lodge in February, 2008, when Pat had spotted the new Dodge Lodge on Wheaton's used car lot. We had travelled 48,717 kms in the 1995 Pleasure Way Van in the 5 years we had owned. Feb 23, 2007 on our trip to US SouthWest, during our visit to Delbert and Mary Anne we get the alternator bearings repaired.
