Seems like your just about done. Recommend that you weight the unit after all that work. You may need to balance the rig with your basement add-ins (tools, chairs, grill, etc.) to keep your new ride feel. Just my two cents...

The rig is looking great. I love working on mine and now i know next year i will upgrade the flooring. Wow that looks amazing.

I was thinking about a three pannel shower door. May go for a curtain. The two panel limits access for an old fart like me. How do you like the curtain?

I'm pretty much doing the same stuff with MY new 97 pursuit. It almost looks like the same set up. What did you use to mount the tv. That's my next check on the list

Taz,

Thanks for the comments! I like the shower curtain, we actualy use a similar one in our house. The original set-up in the M/H was a plastic accordian door style metal framed gold-tinted thing...(that had alot of someone elses old soap on it!) it had to go... We looked at another door style but liked the idea of the curtain rod the bends out while in use and then folds back towards the back wall when not in use. I was able to mount it pretty securely and think it will allow bathing suits to hang from it over the center of the shower to drain without hitting the floor.

Oh and thank you for your service.

Fun,

I used a piece of 1/2 MDF that I cut to shape and secured it with two inch screws spaced around the perimeter and a small amount of liqued nails. Then secured the mount with six SS bolts, washers, lock washers...seemed pretty solid. Two pieces of advise...I used two self tapping sheet metal screws to prevent the tv from moving sideways on the mount (the way it is desgned it holds the rails screwed into the tv securely but allows it to move side to side?) and make sure you drill a hole in the MDF to run the cords PRIOR to mounting it so you don't have to use a metal coat hanger and alot of bleeping to fish the cords thru! ..Opps!!!!

WOW, I can't believe how this is coming along. The floor looks great and now the new tv up front as well. Where did you find a 29"? By the way do you have any spare time , our coach needs a new floor as well. Again that's one great looking job your doing there. Keep up the good work.

and installed a new Roof AC Cover...the old one was getting pretty brittle and was cracked around the mounting screws...didn't want it coming apart at speed and causing an accident behind me or damaging the roof (new last year by the PO)

Thanks again for all the positive comments!!

And I stand corrected the front TV is a 27" (the outside dimension is 29") and nope we haven't named her yet! The things I've called her during the rebuild probably are not appropriate!!

Update...

Been busy so I have been slacking on the details the last week!

The last few days I finished some trim details on the inside. Installed four "new" speakers in place of the old factory ones. They were the factory speakers that came in our boat which we upgraded last year. I think the color matches the interior better than the old black ones and the sound is much better!

We are installing a volume control in the bedroom so if someone happens to be back there the driver can still listen to the radio...

Installed a back-up camera with color and night vision...

Along with a 7" monitor and a "new" JVC CD stereo...The stereo was removed from my son's Jeep when he upgraded...much better than the old cassete deck that was in there!

Have to finsih up a few more minor details, been doing some recaulking and working on some OLD bugs on the front and black streaks...once that is done I will be treating the outside with Poliglow which I have hgihg hopes for!!

She's getting there...we are really looking forward to the big trip 59 days and counting!!!!
