new here late me know what you think of the rv

this had a fire it was a 2005 freghtliner chassis 38 but now yes that is a gm 350 with a th400 gr at 4.3 so it drives like a 1 ton beast mpg i can get is 7 mpg at 55 to 60 mpr but when i see a hard hill well i have been working on it for all most 3 years and from parts i can find here and there i am 6.2 high and the roof was 6.3 so i added 16 inc so the rv is now 12.8 high .. before a lot of you ask why a 350 my wife has SLE lupus and was fond to late so she really wants to see the world why she can so with what i could find to make the beast looking rv i could .. so i started when it came time for a engine funds where low so at the time i use what i had on hand so i drooped it in and sade hello to the road
soon i hope i can find a 8.1 with a Allison 2100 mh to drop in to it the rv is made for more bone docking as you can see there is about 40 amps at 24v solar system on it

i still have a lot of work to go paint... inside work.. but i would like to know what a lot of you guys think about it

only have about 8000$ cash in this thing

Incredible! Obviously you have a lot more talent than I because that is one huge amount of work you have accomplished!


I would love to see interior pics too. How much higher is this roof than production? Where are your air conditioners? I know, dumb questions probably...but I'm sure intrigued!

Welcome aboard and enjoy!

Post lots of pictures! There is a great deal of talent and knowledge here on IRV2!

Fascinating....continue! Incredible! You should make a kind of biography of this coach, do you have day to day or week to week progress charts or notes on your repairs?

WOW! You are my hero! We should call you "Mr. Incredible".
I hope you can find a bigger, better engine and transmission soon.
Best of luck to you, sir!
