Glad to be an IRV2er!!:)

Here is a classic example why it is so useful to be a member on such a forum.
I had recently purchased a 1977 dodge sportscoach, with which I plan to use parts for my 1948 Spartan( I know, i have my work cut out!!)
Long story short, I needed the exterior specs in order to move the sportscoach. Not thinking to find a manual online, I start a thread on this site and BAMM, within 20 min I had a response.
Thanks to all out there who is helping me on this quest. Sleeping beauty and I really appreciates it!!

I purchased this Dodge for dirt cheap and plan on transfering as much as I can to Sleeping Beauty.

You are definitely undertaking a huge project, but I can relate to the feeling of accomplishment that you will have when you are done with this labor of love.
Just curious, what type of parts will you be transferring to the Spartan?
Is the Dodge interior in good shape?

I will not be using the dodge interior. i saved all of the original spartan interior (i believe it is birch) and will be placing that back. I know some parts from the dodge might not fit, ie: sewer tank , however i plan on using the furnace, shower unit, hot water heater, water pump, breaker box, roof a/c. lighting, etc, etc. the dodge interior is in relatively good shape and hopefully these parts are fully functional. I am really excited to fire up the generator and know that attempting to fit that to the spartan will be a real challenge.
fun, fun , fun!!

towing

don't know how far you are moving this coach we pulled a thirty foot south wind about forty five miles on a tow bar using a one ton dodge diesel and had someone follow us with flashers on. but it depends where you are we are in Arkansas they are pretty liberal here as long as it appears safe

gook luck

That's what we're here for. Our members are a wealth off information - I doubt there's anything out there someone doesn't know about.

And, thank YOU for documenting your project here. We love it when a member takes on something like this & brings a piece of history back to life. Keep the pics comin'.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?
