Thanks for the Update. Maybe if all goes well next year it would be possible to get dates to the public at the same time the other Camp Freightliner dates are put out.

Had to plan summer outings and attend Camp Freightliner when you don't get the dates until mid-April and they are scheduled for 90 days out.

Powerboatr,

Just so you don't end up in the wrong place, its Spring, TX, a suburb north of Houston in the same area as The Woodlands.

Tell Mike I sure hope he brings one with the "right color" engine. I signed up for the class again and this time I have friends attending also and have him on our side of the Rockies.

Mike,
Thanks for this. I am a newbie with a '97 Holiday Rambler and am stumbleing through. I have learned a ton on irv2, but seeing and touching should be just the ticket. Looking forward to a few days in Spring, TX (although I'm not sure if I am ready for the "big city". Granbury, TX is reallly spoiling me!

B52Guy,

I'm currently attending Camp Freightliner in Gaffney. You will learn lots and lots of good stuff and have a ball while doing so. Mike is knowledgeable and a great presenter of the information.

I passed the "howdy" and Mike was glad to hear from you.

Great class for any of you FL chassis owners out there and if you need any of your annual services performed this is the place to have it done. They know our chassis better than anyone and if I can get one point across to all Freightliner owners-if you have any problems, please call 1-800-FTL-Help with the last six numbers of your VIN and I'll lay you odds they will save you money, time and aggravation.
