The New Dodge Lodge

We bought our 2000 Wide Body Pleasure Way, Dodge Lodge on February 8, 2008 from Wheaton's with a trade-in of our Old Dodge Lodge. This camperized van has a button to automatically recline the back seat and then we would rearrange the cushions and add our bedding each night. We set the table up at the back for supper and used the back seat as our dining chairs. The bathroom contained the sink and toilet and could have been used as a shower but would have made all the things in the bathroom wet. We used campground showers. The TV is stationary and faces the bed arrangement. We had a built in coffee maker. The interior carpet, fabric and wood was all white. So, Pat fashioned a grey carpet that fit over the floor. There was a 3-way fridge that was quite small, a two burner propane stove, a sink and a microwave oven. This microwave oven had to be replaced after we were in a lightning storm at Irvin's campground. The outside storage is fairly limited. Pat cannot stand fully up in the van. We have one closet for hanging clothes, and storage bins for dishes, food, clothing, etc.
Pat arranged the sale of our New Dodge Lodge on kijiji to very nice people from Chase, after we had arrange for the purchase of our Leisure Travel, Unity Twin Bed from with Rick Kalinoka of Country RV in Kelowna. We had travelled 66,807 kms in the 2000 Pleasure Way Van in the 9 years we had owned it.


  • I will be making a small photo album of some of the photos I have HERE We acquired a closed trailer to tow the new old 1912 Torpedo Roadster Model T Ford. We have towed the trailer with our 1912 Model T Roadster in it to numerous car events, as well as other trips not including the Model T. These events will be mentioned on the Travel Logue page and on the Antiques page or the Model Ts page depending on the event; as well as on the Travel page.
