Terry, great job, and the video came out well too! Loved the tour, and hope to see it in person at Jays next 4th! Looking forward to the TV upgrade! The sleeper on the CC was a stand up first? Or just had the faring? Great job and enjoy!! Rail!

Good Morning, Thanks to all who watched our video, as I finish/upgrade the TH I will continue to take pics, and maybe video also. The TV may be a good Video platform as well ? I'm supposed to pick that truck up this afternoon . Chappgj, Thanks, we are looking forward to using it as much as possible. Frank, There's lots I can't do but I'm working on it . Rail, looking forward to meeting all that make it to Jay's on the 4TH. The sleeper came off a Pete and it was a double bunk condo I cut the top section off as it made the CC 12'.6" . Rivraton, I took that pic at 4,867 ft. on top of White Face mountain, those are clouds . That day the clouds came in, (of course) normally you can see 80 or more miles. Have a Great Day All.

What a great project Harley! Seeing everything from start to finish like that in just a few minutes of video has perhaps given me a renewed sense of hope for our own little RV restoration... Mostly because ours now seems "little" in comparison. Very nicely done...

Maybe someday our paths will cross and we can share a campfire and some stories of our travels.

-cheers

Nice job, Terry. I've been keeping up with the thread for the past year and the video pulls all of your hard work and nice workmanship together nicely. Challenges me to get to work on my unit.

Good Morning All, Bap, Thanks! I started a U Tube channel Called RVTEK (RV that's self explanatory, T for Terry E for Eleanor and K for Katrina my granddaughter who helps out alot) no videos yet, But I will be putting up my upgrades on the TH and the build of the TV. Speaking of the TV...........there is a story, I picked it up last night, now last night it was raining sooo it got dark early. I started out fine, ( I had no one to follow me home) It had a little over a 1/4 tank of fuel which SHOULD have got me home no problem. I didn't want to fuel in in case I needed to work on the fuel tanks ect. Well guess what 15 miles from home I ran out of fuel , did I mentioned It was raining . Called #2 son who was still in the shop to bring me a can of fuel and DW to start from the other direction with a can of fuel, got it covered right? will the first can of fuel promptly went into the other tank because I was on a slight slant. so we needed two more cans to get enough fuel to pump up and get it running, great, now its O Dark 30 if you know what I mean and there is NO taillights, but #2 son follows me home with no other excitement. Here is a pic, it is 34' long from end to end needless to say we will be shortening it up.

Glad you got home ok. I have had to bleed the fuel lines before to get an old diesel going. That would make a good farm truck, just throw some stakes and sides on it when needed. Do you know how much you're going ot shorten it yet?

Good afternoon, George, Still in the planning stages . I need to pull the 12' cargo box and check it out for putting it on, to make sure I can go in that direction. Here's a pic of the fiberglass box.
