Deep Space Lighting — Dave runs Deep Space Lighting, which started out providing headlight upgrade kits for Volvo RV haulers.  If you want to do lighting right (as in high-performance and legal), Dave’s the guy.  Feel free to ask him your general RV lighting related questions. — Most motorhomes use headlights designed for other vehicles.  This site is a resource for locating replacement headlights, upgrades, etc.

Escapees HDT Forum — easily the best resource for heavy-duty trucks being used recreationally.  Great community; go here for information on the 3 annual HDT get-togethers.  For more general RVing stuff in a more close-knit community than either of the big guys, the Escapees forums are a very good resource.

Heavy Duty Truck Campground Directory — Have a big rig and you’re looking for places to stay?  This directory is full of user-submitted locations that are friendly to, and accommodating of, big RV combinations.  You’ll find notes about tight turns, access roads, site lengths, etc.  If a campground you’ve stayed at fits the bill, there’s a short form to have it added to the directory.

Heavy Duty Truck Resource Guide — Here’s lot of information for using a heavy duty truck as an RV hauler, and lots of articles and documents for various projects of interest to that crowd. and Two of the most heavily trafficked general RVing forums. Forums — Truck conversion-specific forum.  Great resource, but doesn’t get a lot of traffic.  If you post a question, be patient.

East Coast HDT Rally — Annual gathering of HDT and truck conversion owners in April in Crossville, Tennessee.

National HDT Rally — October gathering of HDTs and truck conversions in Hutchinson, Kansas.

Passport America — One of the only discount clubs I pay money to belong to–I finally joined in 2017, and wish I’d done it sooner!  50% discounts for short stays at many campgrounds, and the annual fee is cheap enough that it only takes a couple of days to pay for itself.

    Hi David, I recently bought a 2013 VNL 730. The lamps are in good shape so I won’t upgrade right away.
    I’m trying to absorb as much knowledge as I can so please add me to your email list.
    Say hi to Milo!
