Just thought I would throw some pics out there of my new rig. The pics are in the shop. We had to install new dual pane thermal windows (Forrest River dosen't offer this as an option, so my dealer did it for me), install auto sattelite dish, swap generators (it came with a Onan 5500 Marquies Gold and I had a 5500 Marquies Platnum) 3000 watt Onan tru sine inverter with coach command, 300 watts of solar pannals, and a 2nd 35,000 btu furnace and install 2nd 100 gal water tank. Now that all that is done we still need to install the 41" plasma TV, get rid of the fold out sofa and put in Lazy boy recliner couch. After that we will do a PDI, then we got to go on a shake down trip for a few days if my truck is ready. Pictures can be seen HERE if you are interested.
Cheers
Bear

Bearman, you not only have the coach, you have the tractor. Keep on trucking! Looking great. I thought long and hard about the HDT route and have not given up but still have to drive that poor old chevy for now.

Hey Bear:

Looking good! Looks like you've got all the goodies. That bed project is quite the undertaking, ey?

Good for you...we'll expect pics after the first time you get 'er out on the road and get to enjoy it all.

Hummm....maybe I better have that 'talk' with Moski again about an HDT...got to see Dave's and Terry's this last weekend...

Sean
