Looks great sittin' in the yard with its new look!!

Its a rainy gloomy morning here in Central Wisconsin, but looking out the window is a great site. The new paint on the RV is awesome and looks even better, (how can that be) with the slides out towards my view in the house!!! The rain is welcome for us farmers!! It's a great start to the day.

The rain probably adds that "extra" bit of shine to an already nicely finished coach.

Glad to hear everything turned out even better than you expected. Sounds like you will enjoy it for a great many years to come.

New facelift PIC's

Here are a few PIC's of the new paint, got the slides out as Kate is putting stuff back in so we can head out next weekend. She works on the inside and I work on the outside, either way we sure are glad to have her back home and looking good.

It will also get better mileage as Fiberglass is porous and will absorb the air and slow you down unlike paint where the wind glides off. Sounds good, don't it. LOL. It does look great and you will really enjoy it more.

I'd like to be hopeful that your idea would work Well, we will be checking mileage closely but we will be going on the first longer run with the new Aero muffler that we have high hopes for improvement.

Fuel mileage

That sure would be a great thing to get better MPG but I'm not going to hold my breath. Maybe my new muffler and paint job will let me slide through the air, or should I say wind,with ease..
