Before and after

It was a labor of love. Furniture mods, flooring, rope lighting upgrade to LED with remotes. Aqua hot needed a new cap and mixing valve. We love love love this coach.

Very nice looking. I'm wanting to do the same to our 07 Neptune in the next couple years. Our carpet still looks great after 10+ years, but I also hate carpet. Nice work!!

I wouldn't call this an easy mod but it is Monaco style.

Here is a quick picture of a new surge tank I fabricated and mocked into position for our Dynasty. Ready for polishing.


More detailed pictures can be found in my projects thread for our Dynasty in my signature.

I didn't purchase it, I fabricated it as it states on my post.

I have more detailed pictures of it in my build thread for my coach via the link in my signature.

Thanks.

Mike

Mike, your beautiful surge tank wouldn't be a 'Quick tip & Easy mod' to me, even if I made it out of cardboard !

You're right about that Ben. I did preface that picture though with a heads up that it wasn't quick or easy. Oh well, I'm sure many on here fall more under the difficult and time consuming that the quick and easy.
