We'd like to see your pictures as well, no need to wait for it to become a vintage when you can post them in the Show Your New Rig Off forum at the link below.

The Three Amegos

We resently had the rare opportunity to park 3 Apollo Sceptres side-by-side. There were only 44 Sceptre built, they made 30 in 1982, 10 in 1983 and 4 in 1984 (called '85s). The one on the left belongs to Randy and Betsey and is an '84, middle (mine) is a '83, and the one on the right is a '82. It was just rescued from going to a junk yard and now has a new lease on life thanks to Russ and Trina. Thanks guys, I look forward to working with you to bringing this rare motor coach back to its full glory. S/F, Dennis and Cheryl

1990 SILVER STREAK Sterling

Build date of November 1989.

Some substantial changes from Silver Streak traditionally. Unfortunately one of them is an AVION type unsealed roof (Eternabond, here I come). Sidewall roof radius is reduced from the old 22-degrees, but is still an aero 12-degrees (the minimum).

This one appears to have been sold in the PNW and I bought it from a man in N Texas upsizing to a toyhauler. Excellent original conditon, overall (keep my fingers crossed).

All the usual, and with OEM washer/dryer and solar (both of which work).

My third trailer of this brand. And a third-generation owner of this trailer type.

Pics are from PO CL ad. More to come

Take a look at my makeover. A friend put in a new floor and took out the old chair.This inspired me to make more changes. I recovered the seats and recovered the window valances and put up blackout curtains all around. The new chair is from my patio furniture. I wrapped the cushion in a throw so it would match the color scheme. It is VERY comfortable and light weight and I can carry it to the yard if necessary. The original interior can be seen on page 55 of this forum so you can see the change. I still want to change the wallpaper in the kitchen but I may tackle that while I'm living in it during the summer
