This story starts in the hardest time of the recession like many that had there own business things where hard to see past a month but in the long run it was not slow business that lead to me becoming a full time rver

it was my wife found out she had SLE lupus so with that in mind i know i had to slow down and find a new way to live at low cost and the RV was the way to go so she could see many new things from the bed and window of the rv
in my small town of mulberry FL i started to cut up the family company of 30 years some thing i have did all my life and look for a nice rv if you have ever live in FL you would know me as the float man or santa man i have 14 parade floats but i well just add the pics i think ppl would know if they seen then you well see a few pics of that down below

to help make a young women dreams come true i had to late alot of ppl down and i am sorry for that this feels good to say it some where i have touched alot of ppl life's in my past work and my past work is what has given me the tools to do the things you well see here today so from here on it well be just about the RV and i want to thank every one for there support as i sure need it

i fond this rv in a you pull it junk yard in FL where alot of good parts are there even today i did not have the money for a nice RV and a older would not work with lupus it has to be very clean the fire started over the gen with a neutral to ground wring that was wrong

when i fond it there was not much left but a set of bays floor slides all tanks where gone but the water tank it was just a shell for me to start from no gen engine tranes nothing

in the junk yard i traded some stuff i was cutting up parts from the company and got the rv for arond 3000$ in parts no cash just parts to parts so to me it was really free

so i made a A frame got my trusty suburban 2005 3/4 ton 8.1 and pulled it home

so here is what i had to start with
