Yep, guess I should have mentioned that. I am going to call them this morning and will find out how long it normally takes to get them. I will post when I find out.

Just got off the phone with Shadepro and all orders ship within 48 hours and they use UPS ground. Said if mine is shipped today will have it Friday, if shipped tomorrow I will get it Monday.

Don't know if this counts as an upgrade, but I bought it for getting around when at a campground and it is kept in my back cargo bay.

Hey, if you bought it to carry in the RV, it's an "upgrade"! Is that thing battery operated?

Sure is. 17 mph max speed. I don't use the seat, much more fun standing.

Funny you mention scooters. DH is looking at some eZip ones for us. I'll probably kill myself on one, but they look like fun.

Our upgrades!

I am not sure if my upgrades are what you had in mind but, I like to customize our toys so........here it goes!
1. I dark tinted all the windows in the coach and did a dark tinted visor on two feet of the top of the windshield, hiding the shades, makes the coach cooler, keeps people from trying to see in, and the visor is awesome! It is great for running down the road and also hides all the mechanisms for the power shades.
2. Changed al the wheel hubs and lug nut covers to the Peterbuilt Spike Kit!
3. Polished the wheels to a chrome finish and the ZOOP Sealed them to look this way forever!
4. Bought a new 24ft. hauler and had the graphics painted to run right off the coach onto the trailer and then set it up to haul my Harleys and our matching custom golf cart!
5. Installed neon lighting on the awning side of the coach to run underneath to add the low glow for evenings outside.
6. Just changed the goofy reading lights up front above the seats to sconce lights that are LED. no more lights pointed all over the place and looking like crooked snakes hanging on the walls.
7. Right now I am working on changing out the dinette and booths for a side table and stand alone chairs.

I am always trying to make the coach everything that makes it work for us!

Craig--do you happen to have a pic of the sconces you replaced the "snake lights" with? That sounds like a great idea.

I got a pair of those when Zap first started to import them. Great fun but mine could not make the slightest grade. Kind of gutless. I hear the newer ones are much better.

Craig n Deb,
I would really like to see the plans and finish job on the dining table. We have talked about switching ours out, but can't seem to find a good way to do it. Love to see how yours comes out!!

Depending on your idea of going uphill. It will not go up my steep driveway, but will go up smaller grade hills. I mainly use it in campgrounds to ride around and look at all the RV's and just have fun. Used it at Fort Wilderness and it was a blast. I was happily surprised by how long the batteries last as well.
