Oh... My... God! Arrived 2 days ago & she is beautiful! Talk about upgrade! Our previous RV was a '93 front diesel Georgie Boy with Lucy & Ricky beds & zero slides , lol, a true "entry level" RV. Served us well for 5 fun years. I knew the Dream was going to be nice, but I really was totally blown away by HOW much nicer... no comparison! When we started looking, after much research, we decided that we wanted an American Coach, preferably an Eagle or Heritage. I figured start with the best, a high end coach & then go down to a year we could afford which narrowed the search to '99 -' 01 Coaches. This Dream was a fluke! After flying around the country on weekends (we aren't retired) looking at a couple Eagles & a Heritage, boyfriend shows me the Dream. Alright... Not an Eagle, let me call & see what it has. Obviously, to make a very long story a little shorter, lol, turns out it had every available upgrade & everything we wanted - fiberglass roof, 2 slides, trays in basement, exact floor plan (even the colors inside & out!) & the price was amazing! The icing on the cake, the owners were the nicest people ever! We actually are getting together when we make our yearly trip down to Miramar Beach. It was just a wonderful buying experience with absolutely no b*llsh*t & no surprises! It's been raining here in Jersey for a week & the sun has finally peaked thru the clouds today, so pics will definitely be coming, lol! We decided to take the TV the PO's had in the front, out, & put it in the basement compartment with the speakers. Going to see if we could put shelves (matching wood of coarse) in the empty space that's left. As far as actually installing the new 40",we're probably going to just set it on the dash when every to where we're going... Unless someone had a better idea, lol!
The portable refrigerator/freezer will be here on Wednesday, hopefully that will fit in the smallest sliding tray- we had the measurements, so it should JUST fit. With the price being so phenomenal, we're able to do all the upgrades we want to do, which means the Samsung fridge, all new awning fabric & an Eclipse patio awning & LED lights. Boyfriend is going to be busy, he does all the work himself, lol! Whew! Long post! Sorry!

We removed original TV and replaced with 10 pound 26" LED by removing upper cabinet door and affixing tv wall mount.

That looks great! I think ours is a little too big, even for a ceiling or upper cabinet install. Love seeing other's installs. I think I remember seeing something on here where a member posted a pic on his shelf installation in the old TV cabinet. Anybody remember this or can post a link? It was definitely the same up/down, front TV, cabinet thingy, probably also an American Coach.

Very Nice Coach, The American Dream just has that classic ageless look to it. Someday I plan to see the country in one!
ENJOY!

Been so cold & snowy I haven't had a chance to install the smart tiles & the other little things I want to change. I do have some "before" pics the PO sent me before we fly down to check out out...
