Just goes to show that slides are over rated and you can keep these things looking and running for a long time. You should spit in the eye of any campground employee who says your rig is too old. Great job!

Looks as good as mine inside and we have a 2008. You could add a slide that would be something. Keep stored out of the weather and baby all working parts might last more then 20 more years.

Don't worry about the ten year rule. She looks new and the [moderator edit] rule makers are so stupid they won't know the difference.

You people are so nice! I live where it rains alot so we store her inside 7 months a year and i am a work-a-holic so i don't mind hand waxing her over and over. I work the wheels hard too and am meticulous @ maintanence. She has 92k miles on the CAT (oil samples perfect) and 2,450 hours on the Onan 7.5kw diesel gen and I am aware that is just getting broken in.

Exactly, the 10 yr rule is to keep out the JUNK. I run a campground and there is always an exception to that rule.
