I gave up on the motorhome idea.

Plan B was to put a decent flatbed and sides on it and have a heavy duty woodhauling truck. But, since my firewood cutting days are about over, I'm out of the business and don't need a 2 ton flatbed truck. Plus, the cost of buying six 19.5 tires kills the deal.

So, I am doing a dismantle and scrap project. Not much of it is usable, hope to be able to sell the engine and tranny since they are in excellent shape. The fridge should be good, am going to test it this next week. Will have a lot of scrap metal to haul in and sell. After I dismount the tires from the rims, I want to weld the wheels together (after torching out the centers) and will have a bigger woodstove for my house. Wheel rim stoves have lot of surface area and sure radiate a lot of heat into the house. Currently my stove is made from 15" rims. If I use the 19.5's I will have space to weld a flat cooktop surface on it.

I like your way of thinking. A wheel stove. What about doors for fuel and cleaning?

Just like the stove I'm using now, 1/4" steel plate welded over the ends, door with hinges welded on and a trailer hitch ball for the handle.The stove sits horizontal, and I fabricated a long handled tool that fits the contour of the wheels to scoop ashes. I used five 15" rims and it'll handle wood up to 28" long.

Don -- I ribbed ya - or kidded ya about the exclusive Newmar Gated Community mentality all in good fun... But the luster of your gates is waning as the Entegra folks become more vocal and circle the wagons ever tighter. And this too is further kidding. We all love our coaches - and I'm thinking of starting a thread about which floor wax for my Bounder. Who says ya can't teach a old mutant new tricks. I need to look up chided cause I'm not sure it means what I think it means.

Where I live is a tad cooler than Phoenix, I'm up north at 5300 ft.
That's why I'm still using my woodstove every night and every morning.

One of our favorite honorary RVMs has undergone the mutation process - to full fledged RVM.

Say - Hello - Wavey - and Welcome!
RVM2
Hey Sarah, I'm sorry being late to the welcoming committee but I am presently creating Atta Boys from DW. I had a bunch stockpiled but was informed that about 100 Atta Boys can be wiped out by one awe Schitz.

Yeah it was a huge battle between a bunch of infantry against all of 10 cavalry. They have a "re-enactment" March 7. How do the re-enact one shot! ;-)

Glad you are back on the blog and getting better!
Is this the infamous battle where Jubilation Tee Cornpone lead youall on a charge that brought you safely to the rear?

I got all the systems I wanted except diesel fired heating , but DW got every thing she wanted so by default it's perfect. We close on next Wednesday (Monday a bank Holiday), and boat sold yesterday. Rolled the dice on this entire process, trusted the boat buyers and they were super!!!!!!! Coach came from North Trails on Ft Myers, and our guy Kyle was incredible. Told him months ago if the coach we wanted came in to call us. He saw one from a different salesman being traded, called us a put a hold on it till we came in. It was perfect for us. If we can get it all prepped and equipped in time we will see y'all at the GC@CL. Thanks for all your encouragement and advice thru this process. Special shoutout to PTJeep and Flagship 1. See y'all soon we hope. 🚍🚍🚍🚍
Congratulations and nice coach.
