Foretexas,
The previous owners did headlight conversion. It is not a kit so to speak. But I believe they can ship you the headlight assembly and you can have your own body shop install. There is a lot of fiberglass work in the project so it's not a DIY. I believe mine was done by Xtreme in Nacogdoches, TX. They are very well recommended by the Foretravel community.

Thanks Bruce, I have a Monaco so it's probably not a direct fit anyway. It sure looks good though. Enjoy your travels.

Nice, I like the polished stainless on the nose.

'98 Windsor we picked up about 8 months ago. We have taken about 6 long weekend trips so far. We have done a few upgrades including TV & residential fridge.
Beautiful looking Windsor.

I am now 79 and we still love going right after Xmas for 3 months. We go for about three months. The RV has always been in our heated shop since new. I wish I knew how to post pictures, but beyond my knowledge. You have a beautiful coach. Take care, Larry and Judy McIntosh

Sounds awesome. I would love to see pictures of it. That is great that you are still enjoying a coach that you purchased 20 years ago.

I had a special place in my heart for Dynasty's anyways.

Mike.

Nice looking coach. Foretravel is on my short list if we ever upgrade from our Dynasty and that is a nice looking one.

Thank you. The ones on the drivers side are original, the one on passenger side is newer. There was a recliner and table on that side but was replaced with the sofa.

In the closet, we use TV trays. Working on designing a removable drop leaf table.

Our 1998 Endeavor pusher. It's our 4th coach and probably last. We go to Rincon in Ventura, Campland on the bay in San Diego and boondock around So Cal Deserts. We're planning on going to Quartzite this January and Burning Man in 2015. Love the quality and build of this HR.

I believe the replacement is a Villa jack knife, from what I understand Foretravel buys the frames from Villa and Flexsteel and then finishes them out with their own cushions, padding and upholstery for a custom sofa.
