We are fulltimers that have more freetime than brains.Have fulltimed since 1997 and have owned the same coach for that time. In the past 38 years I have used tents,van conversions,slide-in,a trailer and two class A Motorhomes.We have restored 90 persent this motorhome and did all the extras we could fit into the coach.With the paint job it will be done and we plan to hit the road again.We had a accident in 03 that put me into the hospital and rehab and all of the usial fun junk they want to do to your body.We havn't gone anywhere since but I'm getting ichey feet and so is the better half.You won't hear much out of Debbie but she is a great map reader and all around help-mate.With all the insurance junk out of the way and the coach almost done,we are looking foward to going on the road again. Our launch date is scuduled for October 7. We both belong to FMCA and GOOD SAM and on-line we belong to RV.NET,CLASSIC RV and RV ZONE and now,IRV2.com.

I don't know if you are allowed to post all of the up grades here but if it is allowed I will make a list. I thank one and all for the warm welcome and I look foward to trying to help out as well as ask for help.

Well, We got the hitch system installed today on the toad,that Was fun! Tomarrow Iwill finish the lights and brake system.Still waiting for the front corner lights to come in,got the back lights last week.
The motorhome has been on a holding pattern till the Hot weather comes in as I can do the inside work in a/c air!
The toad will be on the road again by July3rd. The motorhome will be getting finished up by september. So far no suprises and no major headaches. So far we are on target for the October launch

Hi, We are busy little beavers here in Az.Found some problems and are taking care of that this week.MH is on hold till the toad is done.Hope to have it done by July.We had our daughter here for awile and she used our car{Suzuki Grand vitara4X4}. good tank!! she got into a accident with it ,Not her fault,We replaced it with the XL-7 and its a lemon Im getting rid of it in July One way or another.There is a lemon law in this state,I may have to use it if they want to play hard ball.We found a older pickup that belonged to a friend of ours and we got it.once it is on the road I'm giving this pos back and we will keep the truck. I like trucks anyway.I;m a old mechanic and I still have a few good years left. I'll fix them till we quit going for good!This MH is giong to be nice when I get it done.I still have the bathroom to finish and some electrical to do for the water heater.After that, all thats left will be the paint.We went overboard some on the entertainment center but we did alot of nice things and the coach is very snug and comfortable. We didn't know that the coach was going to need a new motor and transmission but we redid it all and they shouldn't give us any trouble for a long time.If anyone wants to know about the rebuild pm me and I try and answer it asap. Have a happy Fathers Day!!
