My 1986 26' Itasca project. Thanks to all that helped

Just wanted to post a few pics of my project and thank all those who contributed for their priceless help. We leave in two days for a 10 day tour from Atlanta to Grand rapids Michigan. Where we will rendezvous with friends and family to camp and celebrate my wife's birthday.


By the way , we named her this weekend. "The Southern Heir"

Inside of your rig sure looks a lot like ours as to fabrics and counters - ours has a couch that makes into a bed, rather than the dinette...

more progress made. Between breaking my hand during the process and the unseasonably wet weather this project took a while.

getting a bath and stopping the first time out to check on things. Loose hose clamp was about it at that moment. turned out I had scale and crud in the water jacket. Couple of flush treatments and she was right as rain. drove her 200 miles this weekend and she hung in there at 200 deg.

She's still far away from where I want to be this time next year . With a little luck well make it this trip. The big plan is to have her ready for Sturgis M-cycle rally 2014.
