Very nice. I need to do ours. Living on the beaches with 2 dogs doesn't work with carpet at all.

Looking forward to seeing more pictures.

Didn't take pic with flap cover on yet.
Had to head to Home Depot for fittings to install Washer hoses.

Have an appointment with Camping world for end of week. Oil changes (generator/engine)
Complete system check out an a bath and shine.

Going to park in a local RV camp ground in a week and a half so we can leave it plugged in a few days to cool the fridge while we move in.

More to come

I would also have the rig weighed. I had a recent front tire blowout, and the first thing the tire company asked was " do you have a recent receipt for the coach axles weights and total weight". Don't buy Hercules tires under any circumstances....they are crap. A "four corner weight" is also recommended by many. Also, you may want to join two Holiday Rambler and Monaco sites. Lots of good info on these two. Check them out. one is ramblinpushers.com and the other is monacoers.com.

Good Luck,

Kent 03 HR PST 38' 3 slide ISC Cummins 315

Thanks for the advice Kent. Weighing the coach is on our list.

Dropped it off at Camping World for complete service and go over of all the systems, and an outside Spa Treatment.

Funny, that looks like our Dutch Star next to your rig. (it's not)

Great looking unit you have and it's looking better with time.
