Looking good Terry, you will be done before you know it. Tell Eleanor that her paint job on the walls really sets the image and looks great.


Tim, The cornfield Caddy is a slang term for an International Truck, because they used to be used a lot for farm trucks.

Good Morning Tim, Nope, Cornfield Caddy is an old truckers term for an International Truck, International making farm equipment it kinda was a crossover, Like farmers calling their pickups "cowboy caddys" My TV is an International MDT. I think Rail called it that, and I picked it up and ran with it. (Better then what I have called it).

Around here we called them Cornbinders. If memory serves correct IH made one of the first binders (McCormick Deering).

All I know is they made some real trucks. Could load the stuffings out of them and they would still be level. I pulled a 28' 5er with a 1972 IH 3/4 ton. With the 5er, a full 140 gallon tidy tank, and about 300 lb of weight the overloads were just touching.

Suspensions have changed but I believe that running empty the IH rode about as rough as the 450! With the 392 it pulled like crazy.

Hi Gordon, Yep I've heard them called that too, I've owned several thru the yrs but they were all big trucks, When I trucked logs and pulp wood I had a tri axle straight job, and a cabover tractor. Then I drove for a guy that had a tractor that the front wheels were set back, drove like a cabover but it had a long nose, then drove for another guy and he had two, one like mine now and a cabover sleeper, we used to go to the state of Washington from NY all the time. I guess most of my over the road miles are in an International truck, never thought about it. your right about the hard ride, those PU trucks were tough. I did get the other window in. I covered the window with paper then flush cut trimed the siding, it saved getting the aluminum shavings all over.

Yes, the (corn field caddy) expression came from me!! I am a old retired trucker, Owner/Operator, and coming from the Midwest, i had a lot of farmers as friends. Still do, one of my best friends, is a big farmer, and works for the local TV station, and does the farm reports! I still kid him about the IH equiptment he has and still operates! Red, not green! Yes Gordon, corn binders is one of the expressions too, as IH is one of the first that made the pickers that shelled the corn and seperated all the trash from the grain! Before that it was all picked and the whole ear was sent back to a waiting wagon, then hauled back to the air drying bins, called corn cribs!
Ok, your ed. on corn is over!!
The coffee is tasting very good today, out of decaf. so back on the eythel!
Wow! We have a big family cookout today for the New Years Celebration!
Everyone have a big fun time, and stay safe! Rail!

Good Morning All, Rail, or should we call you Professor Rail , LOL. Watch that hi test coffee . have fun you deserve it, after all that you've went thru this past few months. Cold this morning, 6 degs this am, getting a blast of Canadian air, Gordon, you could have kept it, I don't want it LOL. working on the inside of the TH today. here is a shot of a mockup of the kitchen area, there are two windows going in, a small one by the sink and a tall one to the right of the cab. (maybe). Above the upper cab. will be open cabinets for light bulky "stuff", with cargo net covering the openings. I have to work on the cabinets, new counter tops ect. before they finally get installed.

The mockup looks good.

Just to throw another thought into the mix. What would the layout be like if you put the kitchen into the front left of the body and installed the dining area on the right hand side where you now have the cabinets? One of results would be having the dining area overlooking your pad when you were out camping. It would also be under the awning.

There would be cabinets against the bedroom wall and on the left hand side of the unit (assuming the bathroom is on the gooseneck).

Moving the kitchen forward to the left would leave a larger area for your couch etc.

Hi Gordon, unfortunately I can't move it there (or I would) thats where the bathroom is,(or will be) I put the pics of the donor FW insides this is kinda how the "new" Th interior will be like. The largest seating and dining area will be in the garage area when the bikes are out, other than that there will be a small area at the end of the counter that will flip down, that will make an extended counter/eating spot
