Another Texan!!

My wife Laurie and I just bought a 1996 Fleetwood PaceArrow.
This RV only has 28k miles on it and the Onan generator 329 hours!
It had been sitting for a long time and was in need of some TLC.
We own an automotive garage in Houston, so I have spent approx 60 hours on
our new toy and it runs fantastic!
We have 2 girls 8 and 5, and they are having a fantastic time already.
Great website and resource.
Mike

Here are some photos!

Welcome from another Texan.
This is a great site. Lots of friendly helpful people. I'm fairly new to this site but have already managed to pickup alot of information. Been helpful a couple times too. My RV is a Fleetwood Discovery 38', looked at a Pace Arrow and really like them. If you're having a problem there are members that have a lot of experience and always try to give the best advice possible. Good Luck
KC

Looked at your pics.
Nice rig, looks new. Except the TV. I dropped one off the galley counter myself. I have young kids also, son is 12 and daughter is 4. They have a blast. Hard to find any storage space that isn't full of toys, books or musical instruments. Bottom storage has lots of beach chairs, sand toys, sea shells, fishing poles surf boards etc. Really want tp take a wind surfer and kayak along but kids have all spare space taken. But this is the main reason we bought ou RV. Take our kids places and be comfy. Glad we did.

Welcome to the forum where information is free and freely given. Your pictures are nice showing off your new to you rig. I couldn't help notice the one picture of your daughter as you're (possibly) driving down Hwy 288. She doesn't have a seat belt on. Children and adults often become projectiles during emergency stops. I have a hard time keeping our grands seated and buckled up but it sure is better than scraping them off the windshield. Remember too. "Click it or ticket it".

Safe travels and keep us posted on your adventures.

Welcome from the Dallas area. We spent 5 years in Houston working. We enjoyed the time very much. Have a great time with your new rig. Post often to the fourm so we can keep up.

Thankyou all for your warm welcome!

If you look closely in the pictures and the short video that I have on the picassa link, she IS most definately wearing her seatbelt.
The shoulder harness sits high on her neck, so I let her put it behind her back.

Yall have a great day!
Mike

Welcome! I'm a neighbor from Texas City. Hope to see you at one of the Texas Boomer's get-to-gather's.

Nice pictures. Good job. I'll have to find out where your garage is!

Thanks for the seat belt update. I was concerned also. Yes, it does show that your daughter is wearing the lap belt portion. Great. I think they make a contraption that will adjust the shoulder harness to a user's size. (I think.)

Come by and check us out sometime. My shop is hidden away
just north of Hobby Airport. You would never
guess that there was a European shop on Dixie Dr.!

We normally do not let the kiddos sit in the front, however it was one my first rides in the RV and Hannah went along. It really was fun. ( we were bringing it home )

Wayne is right about the shoulder belt adjuster. Try JC Whitney, if intrested. believe I saw something like this there. Kids car seats usually have them. My couches have all lap belts and my kids always wear them. My son make a great co-pilot, he's almost as tall as me so seat belt is fine and he gives my sometimes worn out out-look a fresh look at things. Looking at putting 4 good seat belts at setee table benches, not sure why Fleetwood didn't put them there.
Good Day to All
KC
