Hi everyone. I'd like to build my own camper eventually, but till then, i'm gaining knowledge :thumbsup: Building runs in the family, i'm a welder/fabricator by trade, and this stuff is "the bomb" we have a 27ft travel trailer and camp a lot, but...i'd like to build something eventually. Well, take care everyone, and i look forward to many enjoyable talks with you guys :applause:

take care, Ryan

Hi there. I am a welder at oshkosh truck corporation. We make the world's toughest trucks. (I know because I help build them) These are some of the trucks you see in national guard convoy's , military trucks, cement trucks, severe duty vehicles that are all over the world! Check out oshkosh truck corporation website !http://www.oshkoshtruck.com/We make the trucks, that protect, and serve this great country! (Sorry, kinda proud of this) :thumbsup: So, that's what i do, Being a welder, i get bits, and pieces, but, anyways, that's what I do. I've got a 18 year history in metal fabrication, and welding in many different industries. I guess it's in the blood! thanks for asking!

Welcome aboard Ryan,
Tom from Kenosha just started posting too. I live just south of the WI border and often think of WI as more my state than IL. There is a pretty good Tear Drop community building here in the Midwest! :thumbsup:

As a welder you can help a lot of us welding challenged!

My bet is you could build a tank of a Tear Drop :lol:

I know Oshkosh, they make the HEMTT. I've always called those "The Ultimate Offroad Vehicle."

I guess the same chassis is used for airport fire trucks cause they kinda have the same cab.

Hey Ryan!

Elmer from Green Bay. Not very far along even though I have been here awhile. Everyone else here will be able to give you alot of information...if you have too much beer at your house I will be able to help you get rid of that.

Welcome!

Welcome Ryan,
Yes we are all off bubble a bit. :lol: 8) We just don't get enough pictures. 8) Soooooo just dig out the camera and post post post. We also have a Madjack and a Mad Aussi and Well me so----a personal picture will make a good start.

We were thinking of putting all new pictures in our avatars with Santa Hats or other holliday junk on. ;)

Nice to have another welder on board. I know what they are but am veryyyyyyyyy unlikely to use one.
