I was a little disappointed to see the MH and toad in there. I really expected a Millennium or Featherlight custom coach with a Ferrari toad. But seriously, nice place.

How much trouble is it to put in that hydronic heating system for the floors?

Not much trouble at the time of construction. They put down styrofoam with wire mesh on it then the poly pipe above that. Kind of pricey, but one third the heating cost of forces air heating. And no sounds or air movement. Pays for itself in no time. They are using it a lot in new home construction and put the pipes in the floor joist as well as the concrete basement floor. Combine it with a geothermal system and your home utilities are about as low as you can get. It can also cool a home as well as heat it.

. Thank you.

We do have a Corvette, but it stays at our home in Vegas. Haven't used it for a toad yet though. Don't know if it would even drive on the tilt trailer or not, being how low it sets.

I put it in all my garages and my complete new house. In the concrete and in the floor joists. I have it run on an open loop Geothermal system with 10 KW of solar. Best heating and cooling I have ever had.

No geothermal in this shop. Just natural gas boiler with split system for different thermostats in the club part and the shop. Also gas forced heat and air in the club part. Never use the forced air heat as the floor heat is so much nicer and cheaper to run.

Storage is a problem in this part of the world. To solve our dilemma, we sold our place and bought one of these. The garage is big enough to put the MH in with the slides out (have to unhook the toad and park it in the garage on the opposite end unfortunately). On the bright side, we live upstairs. Looking forward to the move.

Now that's the way to do it.
