Refurb

We started looking at replacing our 2008 5'er last year and decided what we had was better than most of what we saw. So we ventured down the path of paint and refurbishment. What a difference.....my wife loves it.

Beautiful rig! Nice job carrying through the theme from the cab to the fifth wheel.

Enjoy her, share your adventures, give (and receive) advice, and, above all, be safe.

Holy cow now that's a serious RV. It really came out well.

We've looked at new coaches and decided, like you two did, that ours is pretty good and functions quite well so we'll just stay with it. Plus I know every crook and cranny not to mention where all the problems were located.

It's so weird being the same age as old people.

Hmmm, I just realized I never completed the signature!!

The truck is a 2006 Volvo VNL 780 with Eaton UltraShift and a VED12 engine with 580,xxx miles. The bed was made by B&G Truck Conversions in Argos, IN and the hitch is an air ride TSLB2H.
The fifth is a 2008 K-Z Escalade Sportster 41CKS with H-rated 17.5's, disc brakes, Mor/Ryde IS, and a Big Foot leveling system.
The paint was done by Precision Paint in Bremen, IN and the interior mods were done by Recreational Specialties in Wakarusa, IN.

I can't take any of the credit for anything regarding the paint....other than paying for it. The designer at Precision Paint recommended it and she and Joan picked the colors and design.

That's one nice paint job! Looks like a whole NEW 5-r. You mentioned interior mods. Can we get pictures of those? We love pics here.
