Nice job Terry as usual. Hope that the weather holds out long enough for you to get things done that you need to.

Good Afternoon, Frank, I don't think the weather wants to cooperate, its already starting to snow and it wasn't supposed to until tonight . Oh well I'm used to it, move to something else. I did get the bumper tacked on the rear, now need to finish welding and weld in the plugs, grind and polish. It'll wait till the next warm day, (at least 30* and no snow) Rail, here's an idea..........road trip to Florida, pick up MH, drive to Illinois and renew license . Almost forgot...........Here's the start of a new front bumper.

Looking great Terry. I still cannot believe you get out in this cold weather and do something productive. Are you planning on putting a receiver hitch on the front bumper? I had those on both of my Class C's and they were helpful at times.

Hi Ron, What did you use the receiver for on your Class C's. We built one on a Ford F350 years ago that we would use to spot trailers and equipment with and also would put a winch in it. There is a couple of hooks on the front now on the Tot'r for pulling if needed.

I have used it to mount a platform to get high enough to clean the front windshield. And I also have a winch that fits the 2 inch square hole. And I have backed up small trailers that were too small to see behind the Class C. I do not have a problem backing a trailer if I can see it. Well, that is if the trailer is just a regular bumper pull trailer. I have almost no experience backing a goose-neck or 5th wheel. I will leave that to you guys.

Ron, I had a feeling that's what you used it for just like we did. About working in the cold, I guess even though I complain about it I've lived here long enough and worked in it to not let it bother me to the point of stopping me completely, (at least mostly). Weather right now is sleet and freezing rain here.

Terry, the rear is shaping up very nice, can you back it in the door of the shop and then close the door down to the top of the deck? And the old front bumper had to go!! Can't be sporting a bent up bumper ( by someone else ) on "Your baby" the Tot'r!
My old 99 F-250 diesel had a 2" front receiver mounted also. The guy I bought it from used to put a motorcycle rack in it and put a small scooter up there, so he had wheels to run around the horse shows that he went to! He pulled a 40' gooseneck horse trailer with living quarters in the front. He raised and trained cutting horses!
Ron, if you can back a bumper pull trailer, the fifth wheel or gooseneck would be a piece of cake for you! They are different but just in the time you start cutting and straighten out. That's all! Once you figure that out, no problem!
And Terry, great idea, hmmmmmmmm????, Fly to Tampa, pick up the MH, drive to Illinois, Via, Yuma/Upstate NY!!!!! Hahahahahaha!!!
Rail!

Good Morning, Rail, I technically could back the Tot'r's tail in (there's a 10'X10' door) but really couldn't move around much, I have a portable garage that I have thought about erecting over the rear, it's not tall enough to go over the coach area.
