'67 Holiday Rambler TC

It has been a good rig since new. It was originally paired with a 67 Ford F250 with extra leaf on springs.
Keep up-dating to keep up with the times. Latest change was the roof-top AC which requires a good generator to run it. Out front was the only option. Had to get heavy power line and change the breaker box around to accommodate it. Was Working great, but last time the generator starting surging and shutting down just running small electrics. Need to have a Honda shop look at it because there are electronics involved in the control of the carburetor and that is out of my realm.
Although the rounded corners are stylish, I can't put modern jacks on round corners. So I am still cranking it up and down.
Another drawback is the "full size" bed and no cabover rooftop escape hatch (Keep a small hatchet by the mattress for emergency purposes).
We still love it. though.

You can, you just need to find where the studs are on either side of the curve and then have a set of custom brackets made by a welder using a large piece of steel tubing with a similar arch to use as the base to cut the curved section needed to fit around the edge.
