Paid $2500 for it in '91 and put roughly a $1000 per year in body work and repaints, major drive train repairs repairs, replacements, parts and upgrades per year. Sold it last month for $6500. As stated above, don't even want to think about what I've spent on RVs since '88.

Stainless steel exhaust tips for the Ford V10 and the Onan generator. Can't quite get the factory one off of the Ford yet. Only played with it a few minutes last night. Haven't tried the genny yet but it should be a piece of cake.

Ordered slide toppers for all 3 awnings. Took unit in yesterday for install. Didn't get them because the mounting rail was mounted so high above slides the the elite metal covers didn't cover the awning. Reordered the deluxe models with no metal protector. Rats!

I'll keep that in mind. I wanted to add metal toppers to mine. I have a "line" of sun damage about 1/3 way on one of mine. Is there a tape I can use to cover the thin exposed edge?

Yeah, wish someone had told me. The wardrobe slide is ok but 2 rear slides are not. I have one mounted until the new ones come in. Stopped them after I saw the first. The awning can't roll up enough to be covered by the metal. Tried to post a pic but app crashed. I went with black hardware to match patio awning and white material for cooling effect. Assumed white wouldn't show when rolled up, but it does, bad.

I've wondered about a carefully applied strip of Flex Seal on the outer edge. Probably a solution out there somewhere.
