How difficult of a job installing was it? I would really like to get one for the old gal. (Tach)

The tach was very easy to install. It came with a column mount adapter, so just a large hose clamp to mount it. Same as this one: Bosch-Actron CP7908, Sunpro Gauges | Bosch-Actron
Only 4 wires to connect (3 if you don't care about the backlight). The tach wire was almost long enough to make it to the HEI, just needed a small extension. Took all of 20min to install it.
This one does not include hardware for mounting in-dash, but does have an on/under dash bracket.

Tried a test fit of the 24 X 32" tub in Nessie's bathroom. It will work. Oh yeah My 76 Travco now has a name.

Dang it that is exactly what I need. I just bought "Stumpy" before Christmas. The MH is in really good shape, except I can't find the front snap in curtain...I have looked everywhere. I reckon I will have to have one made.....would your wife be interested in making another one if I send you the measurements? I'm pretty handy, built my own cedar log home...but I ain't no seamstress

My wife says she might have enough light blocking material to do another one. You must measure all the way around the top of the windshield plus 4 inch past cab side windows. Provide pictures of your existing attached rail, especially an end view so know what attachments are needed and she will give you a quote.

I've been looking for a yard also. There was one in Chehalis, WA that sold out. Their stuff is currently on Craigslist. I'm looking to replace couchs.
