Intro to the group

hello all I just joined and wanted to tell you a little about us. Heather and and I have been campers for several years but mainly in popups and sailboats. Our oldest dog went blind so it was time to put it back to camp grounds instead of lakes and the gulf. Since Heather is much better with money than I am she would only allow me to spend slightly more than I sonld my sail boat for. I bought a 94 27ft 5th wheel terry that had some roof problems in the past. Since I had rebuilt my 1st pop up's 1974 roof I thought that few panels would be easy, we shall see. When I bought my sail boat a 23 ft aquarius i joined a yahoo group that was a wealth of help. So I thought that it would be best to join a group that knew more aboyt RV's and Campers than I to begin this Journey. I will post pics Of my first task and see what wisdom I can gain before I do my usual and get in over my head in aproject. Any help and advice is appreciated and needed

Thank You
Jim

Welcome. It does my heart good to see another sailor move on to RV's. We to had an Aquarius 23, hull #1024 but alas old age (not the dog but me) required something a little less strenuous than working the fore deck. Just remember RV's are just like boats just another place to dump money you really had not planned to spend.

Welcome to iRV2 and the world of land yachts. I sold my last sailboat about 15 years ago. When I am near a marina and here the wind in the rigging, it still sounds good.

Yea my hull # was 304 i posted some pics on my terry's roof problem if you guys have any ideas on the best plan of attack I would think that it would'nt be that hard to replace some roof wood that has some rotted wood. before I fix my roof.

I have never had to replace roof trusses, but if you have reasonable wood working skills it should not be too bad.
