They are great, and there are a lot of Mitchell's still out here in Colorado. I wish the dually was mine, but that is the parents truck. I do enjoy the older Sweptline era however.

It looks like the wheel on the tow dolly.

While it is a small update, I picked up my new to me 16" rims to get rid of the 16.5" split rims. Little bits here and there. This is going to be a SLOW project.

It looks great so far. One step at the time. It took me 10 years to get through 4 years of college. Just going.

I know the feeling. I love the look of that old girl she is going to look super when its all done.. i just had 6 16" dually rims donated to my project so now I can ditch the 16.5's also..
Good luck with your rebuild cant wait to see the finished product.

Well a little "fun for me" update. I got to drive her around my buddies property where it is stored. I love driving that MH. Keeps me excited to fix her up when times get a little better!

Mine sits in the driveway waiting patiently for me to finish it and take her out for a spin. But at least I can go out there when I need some peace and quiet, fire up the furnace and relax...

Always good to have a quiet place.
