The 'Pursuit' of happiness....

Here she is....

Our 1998 Georgie Boy 'Pursuit" 33-foot Coach
18,XXX miles on the clock.
Ford Chassis
460 c.i.d. Fuel Injected Gasoline Engine
Onan 4000 Generator with @190 hrs on the timer. (inc. the 6 hours I ran it yesterday)

She spent the last 6+ years sitting on a permanent campsite in Northern KY, regularly used on weekends, but was connected to full hookups all the time....

Minimal effort so far to refurbish

New 4.0 GPH / 55 PSI FW Water pump (Old one was sketchy with pressure switch, most likely from lack of using the onboard FW tank)
Repaired/replaced rotted wood in bottom of entry door - no more gorilla tape like in the picture
Resealed cracked silicone seams, and burnt out external bulbs.

Pictures taken at Hueston Woods State Park Campground - Site C15

Congrats. You should have fun, both in the rebuild and use of your MH.

Nice looking rig, I like the older models also. Ours is a 1982 Pace Arrow 48,000 miles 30 footer, Near Mint condition I just waxed her also.
I was going to change things but after really thinking we decided to leave her the way she is even the Gold Carpet, The interior is almost new looking (ware wise).
You are going to really like the awnings too, you can have the windows open in a down pour (with no or little winds). I checked this weekend after getting 4 1/2 inches of rain.

I like the interior Blue is my favorite color too. You are 3 feet longer but it look's like you have way more space than mine.

I cheated.... sort-of.

I used a wider-angled lens on my camera than normal, so there may be an optical effect causing you to think that. (a mild "fish-eye" effect) I wanted to make sure I could catch as much of the coach in a single shot as I could....

If you ever check on your "RV trader" websites, most times those pictures are also taken with a wide angle lens to give the appearance of more available space.
