I've been a little remiss in posting pics. I posted a thread about getting her awhile back in the Winne Owners Forum, but no pics:
UA 40E is home (long post)

So, here we go.

My wife and I christening her:



Random shots:













Christmas on the road:



Wheelchair mods:

Wider aisle thru coach:



Me in driver seat(notice spinner knob and hand controls by my left hand):



The w/c lift:



Well, that's it. We are very happy to have her. We are gearing up/planning our trip to Baton Rouge for St. Patricks Day. We will be in the parade(not the MH) on my sis and b-i-l's float. They are going to use a forklift to get me on. Yikes!

Good looking rig.

We purchased a 2000 UA 36C last month and still need to get some pictures posted. I really like the body paint on yours, mine is white with the swoshes. I noticed you have rear mud flap does that help keep the rear of the coach cleaner? I don't have one and the rear to the coach, to include backup camera, gets filthy.

Again, great looking coach.

Paul

Thanks guys,

Paul, nah don't think the flap helps a whole lot, at least in the rain. In rain my camera gets filthy as well.

McDuff..
Great set up. I have a bad habit of looking at pictures first and then going back and reading. As I was glancing at the pics - I was thinking ... wow .. it looks so open and accessible. Then I read where you had stuff widened to make it wheelchair friendly. Whoever did the conversion did a great job!

I do have a question though... is that your license plates look like California plates...but your location states Tx. Is Texas one of the states that if you go fulltiming that you want to make as your home base? (I just remembered another Monaco owner on the board stated he needed to finish getting his Tx license.. so now I wonder if that is the reason behind the decision)

Mama,

Even though you answered your own question, , yes Texas is a good one to have as a homebase for fulltimers. No state tax, and other things beneficial I believe.

The Escapees (a fulltimers org) is based out of central Tx, they can give you more info.
www.escapees.com

Oh yeah, Thanks.

Thanks for the reply. I wasn't sure if I should spend the money for the mud flap because I didn't think it would help that much. I'm going to work on something else like a sheild for the camera or a defusser on top of the coach.

My wife really likes the colors of your UA.

Paul
