Greetings to all from way up here in Newfoundland, a really BIG island in the cold North Atlantic ocean. My wife and I have purchased a 2005 South wind 37 L, Workhorse Chassis, Allison Trans and 8.1 chevy motor and have taken a short jaunt part way across this island which is 1000 Kms from home to the ferry crossing. ( Look that up on Google for distance)It was a great trip and we are looking forward to more! And yes , there were a few little hiccups along the way but nothing that this tradesman couldn't handle. Age, lumps and bumps along the life highway does have some rewards. My motto is " If it's broke , the worse you can do is fix it!) After checking out all the info you can research of course!! Keep on truckin!
