Well we had another exciting day (Not). We were on our way to town to attend a funeral of a friend's mother. Dale wasn't feeling the best this morning. About half way down the hill, Dale decided we needed to take a detour to the hospital. His Afib has returned. They are keeping him overnight for observation and started him on some meds.

Debbie... ya gotta quit getting him all worked up! JK... Omms for Dale. That Afib stuff can be frustrating. My sister had a silent heart attack over a year ago, and last Sept. She 'died' at work, was resuscitated, placed on a vent for a day or 2 and has had some sort of monitor every month or so while they are trying to figure what the heck is going on... she has a funky beat... which is kinda funny cause she's pretty straight laced and I wouldn't consider her funky at all... but when her heart does it's funky dances, it's scary!

With all those RVs flooded out from Harvey you might be able to find some salvaged seats that are almost new.

Thanks for the suggestions, y'all.

I know that all the manufacturers use Ultra Leather, but for several years (and maybe still) they also used a fake Chinese knock-off of it. It starts out looking really sharp and ends up bubbling and shredding. Just awful stuff.

So if you had to choose, would you (or did you) go with new seats or reupholstering the old ones?
We are replacing our 18 year old chairs , the footrest is failing on Marcia's chair and the lumbar supports on mine have never worked.

We were planning to downsize to a new Sprinter (Winnebago Navion) but when we heard the trade-in "offer" we backed off. So doing a bit of updating instead; at least we know what we've got.
My brother used Bradd and Hall to do some work on his 1998 Barth and they did a fantastic job and they are very reputable.

Agreed X2. I've been there, nice people. I bought some stuff too, one thing was a recliner for my Canyon Star which was exactly the same one as Newmar was using. They matched the color to a "T" as well. Good place.

I'm sure everyone can picture RiChard just wandering around, but this time he was doing it in a NEW ride!

Enjoyed the mini and hope they enjoyed the craziness of our family. Having three hurricane fans blowing across us made the heat bearable! Great visit!

B & H did a lot of work on our "old" (sniff sniff) coach including installing a residential refrigerator and all new flooring. Good people to work with.

Queen Ann has a NEW ride? RiChard! It's Show & Tell Time. Gather round, kiddies!

Hey, is it this one that Martin found yesterday?
