I have to take some pics yet. It's cold in Pa. and it will be a spring time job, but it has a queen bed that I want to change to 2 twins and bought 3/4 plywood for a new counter top and table top. Also bought a 4x 12 ft sheet of formica for the top and contact cement. Going to replace the house batteries with 2 120 amps as soon as I can find where they hid them. Plus I bought a 19 inch flat screen which will go above the windsheild as soon as I get the drop down bunk out and replace it with wood and cupboards. The cheap particle board they use for counter and table tops swells when it gets wet and the formica pulls away which won't happen with plywood. Later on it will have satelitte tv and dvd player to keep the grandkids happy at night. Plus I've been buying games, mountain pie makers, and hotdog forks and other things to stock it up for this summer. Soon as I get a chance I'll take before and after pics of everything I do and post them. Later on I might even go solar. And have a golden lab thats going along plus I'm retired.

It'll be interesting to follow your projects as they progress. Be sure to post a lot of photos.

That, if you didn't know is an Elandan model - I have an '87 32 footer Elandan that has been a fantastic MH. Lots of info is available for it online.

I just got a 2000 Adventurer 32', so Beluga (as we call her because we bought her painted pure white - looks like a big white whale) is going on the sales block.

I really like the streamlined front end design - better than the front on our '88 Winnie pictured over to the left - should have at least a small improvement in MPG...
