I see that you're parked at a lumber yard- what kind of major project that that signify??!

She's a lovely old bird (and what a nice shiny coat she has!)- how about some shots of the interior so we can ooh and ahh?

She looks awesome! I'm a firm believer that a RV (or any vehicle) will last as long as the care you give it. As long as there is not a catastrophic failure.

Nothing like a new dress on an old Lady !
Seriously she looks like she could go another 20 without a problem.
Good looking rig.

Thank you ALL for the kind words! I am trying to get encouragement!!! :P

You took great care of her. I'm sure there will be NO problem keeping her on the road another 20. Be safe and Happy Motoring!!!!

Gorgeous! She may not have slides, but the layout and color scheme make her look plenty big and roomy.

You've sure got a strong case for killing the stupid "No rigs over 10 years old" rule that some cgs have. It looks nicer than my '02!

What do you mean not rigs over 10 years old? Mine is over that and is just now breaking-in.
