Given that's what my Mother called them when I was growing up, I would say the term started here

New to you RV

I hope you are good with body work. Maybe you could take a night course on Auto body work. Would love to see interior pictures.

Ken;
Check out the thread "total rebuild" on this forum. It is an interesting thread and contains some how to videos that may help. Also a fellow doing some fiber glassing.

Good luck with your repairs.

My 1989 Country Coach Concept

I have only owned the Coach a couple months. I am really enjoying it. I looked at a lot of newer ones but thought this was the best fit for me. I am amazed at the how nice it was made 27 years ago. Everything is original and seems to be in great shape. I hope to have many years of service from it and learning lots along the way.

My 94 Southwind Storm 28ft P-30 chassis w/454. Purchased it with 44,XXX miles, new roof, Banks header system. Wife and I spent a week or so doing deep cleaning on everything interior and exterior. Looks as good as new now.

Just returned from a trip 600+ mile trip and averaged 9.3 - 9.9 mpg (US) no towing.

Hey Bootjack that is one fine coach! It has some real style outside and inside, especially the Jacuzzi tub. That is so cool. It has real elegance and is laid out in a way I just might not miss my slides.

What engine etc is it equipped with? More pics if you have 'em, like to see the front too, cockpit etc! Thanks for posting.
Best regards,
W.D.
2014 Itasca Ellipse 42QD

Oh, nice Chevy too
