Ummm, I'm not so sure that the "bump" emoticon was entirely appropriate there, Cap. . .

A bigger Bump would have been better but that was the only size so....

yeah wrecking my truck sucks. I hope to get something settled this week but right now the ins. people are being asses. they gave me a $1000 penalty on my truck because I have 2 places where the paint has bubbled up. I was in the process of ordering new bedsides for it to fix this before the wreck. but the adjuster took an estimate and they took that dollar amound and deducted it from the value of the truck. I am fighting this one out because my truck was only valued @ 3350 any way. by the time all the penalties are applied and my deductable, I would get 1400 if they take my truck, and 900 if I get to keep it. I am getting hosed!

As far as Freebie goes, I have got the rubber roof. and the glue is ordered. It will be in tomorrow. I am also looking for the tape. I hope to pick it up from the same place but all they have is the aluminum backed stuff and I was hoping for white. I will keep you posted.

Hey Y'all. Sorry I haven't been on in a while. I got a new schedule at work and things are a lot more busy. I had to take the winter off from Freebie but now that the weather has improved greatly I got back on it. I have been wanting to get back to work now I can and I am happy. I got he roof stuff finished up and my vents on. I am curren't getting all my wiring in for the boat load of lights I am adding and I am getting the sheetmetal on the back tonight. I am taking pics and will get them up loaded soon!

Update on my truck, I did end up getting 2800 bucks out of the insurance. I took the money and put it in to another truck I had in storage. I may post pics up of it later. it's to be my new daily and how I spent my winter. I hope to have it done in a few weeks.

but fear not fellow Vintage RV'ers I am back and on the road to completion and you can ride shotgun! (if you want to)

Hey guys! I am back with another update. I have been busy. I got all the back sheet metal on and the new markerlights are wired and ready for new markers. Needless to say when you get to see this you are going to know there is no way you are going to miss Freebie at night.

So I got the metal on all the seal tape on the roof, and even sealed all the corners to asure NO leaks. I got a new flange fabricated for my bathroom fan and put all the vents back on the room and double sealed them. once with the silicone roof sealer, and then the seal tape on top. I only have the trim on the edge to put on to finish it up on the back and side but I am waiting to get the front end sheet metal on to do that. Hey do I Have to wait? because over the winter one of my tarps got a small leak and it leaked right on the bottom of the over head bunk so I have to replace that 3/4" ply wood again.(ugh) Oh well it could be worse.

Some of the other stuff that is done so far, I finished the bath room last night including a new door. I also got all the new shelves in the closet. all I have to do for the back half is to add my trim and paint.

I had a boat load of pics but for some reason most of them got corrupted some how and I can't see or share them. I do have some that I plan to share with you soon but I am at work and can't get them to upload right now. I will try again at lunch. I also have some pics of me installing my EPDM on the roof that I don't think I got go post. so I will put those up as well.

I am Hoeing the short rows as they say. I have to hammer down on this because Freebie has a dead line. My wife and I have reservations for our first camp out at Kinkaid Lakes resort in Falmouth KY Memorial day weekend. I won't have the out side painted like I wanted but I will have the inside done and the mechanicals finished by then. I really wanted Paint done but I will have it done by our trip to TN at the end of June.

Thanks for reading and I am glad to be back.

More talk and updates soon!

OK Kids! Yeah I know I know, it's been too long. I apologize. I have been spending every waking momnet away from work on Freebie trying to make that Memorial day weekend deadline. Unfortunately due to all the rain around here I didn't make it so I put my time off this past weekend in to it and I am in a lot better shape.

So when we last left you Freebie Looked alot like this




So it my last bit of work before winter was the EPDM.








Here is is all trimmed up and ready for seal tape.


Next was to tape it up and get all the vents on and sealed.



I also got all the wiring for my hoard of marker lights before I got the top edges sealed up and moved on to the back end. I got all the wiring on the back as well then got the sheetmetal back on and seal taped.




Now with this work done I got to move on to the bath room to finish up in there. I got the new tile board all up and glued in place.


added some bracing to get good adhesion.


got it all done and added a new skin to the divider wall. I really wanted to take it out but it supports the roof and couldn't.
