Very cool, I like the spot on the front bumper for adding a ball to pull your boat in and out of the water. Don't see those much anymore.

She's a beauty! We also need to do the outside of Titanic, so I hope you'll share your project with us.

Last summer I became the proud owner of a '91 Foretravel 36' Grand Villa ORED.
I know compared to a lot of the coaches on this forum it's not "that" vintage but I have done a lot of work none the less. Mostly on the interior, I am getting ready to move on to the exterior now, I need to completely strip the existing stripes and recondition the fiberglass and re-stripe but hey, one thing at a time!

This has always been one of my favorite looks for a motor home. My first one was an 81. That was before they went to their own chassis. Mine was on a Dodge. Now, if they only had slides...

That's Great! I have a real weakness for the late 60s - 70 vintage stuff. Patricularly the Travcos and the really compact Class A's like your swinger. I had a passing fancy to do something off the wall with the Foretravel, paint the whole thing a light sand color and get someone to do a P 40 Warhawk eyes and sharkmouth on the front. Something like this only bigger.

P-40 Warhawk Decals (Shark Teeth) - ADVrider

However the ways and means committee (my wife) threatened dire consequences.
So it looks like we're back to a conventional resto.

MDH16,

That would be WAY cool, especially if it were glow-in-the-dark!

That looks like a nice clean rig!
Have you done something to increase your ground clearance?

Love to see more photos of your RV. Looks like you've spend hundreds of hours on her. What did it look like before you restored it?
