How do you firm up old camper cushions?
If they are made of foam inside, they cannot be firmed up. Foam has a limited life expectancy, and it loses its elasticity after several years. Decay happens faster if they are exposed to extreme heat. You may need to get new inserts for them. Call a camper store that sells campers and RVs and ask them. Start with the manufacturer of your camper if you can reach them. ...

How do you clean a camper van water tank?
You take it off the camper empty out the water in it and take a scruber and just clean it out :) +++ I'd caution against using a scrubber, or anything abrasive. Rinsing with a solution of bicarbonate of soda (baking powder) is an old trick for cleaning the interior of things like fridges and water-tanks. After rinsing it out, if possible leave it somewhere warm to dry out completely before storing it with the filler loose so it can air without spiders...
What is the value of a Nimrod tent trailer built in 1969?
We purchased a Nimrod tent trailer which we think had been built in the 1950's in ~1980 and paid $150 for it. We still have the trailer, which, not surprisingly, has needed several repairs over the years (e.g., reinforce a partially rusted bottom; replace U-shaped bolt holding the axle on; etc. So many times we came close to losing the trailer due to these structural weaknesses along the way, but we always managed to get it back home to be able...
