She only has 5,000 road miles on her, She sat a long time which means a lot of work needs done, need to install new air bags and brake hoses (already had an incident with the left front brake locking up) trying to locate the correct ones. Replaced sway bar bushings, Re-coated roof, replaced solar panel.. Still working on charging system.. Well on our way though! Can't wait to hit the road...

Should get a lot of good use out of it. I have the Sister ship Pace Arrow Vision. Hard to tell from the pictures but it looks to me like it is a Ford Chassis. Be sure to job on the Ford Chassis forum for help with repairs, lots of free knowledge over there.

Be sure to read the threads on Red Max or ZEP floor wax as a way to bring a shine bag to the old girl that you will no believe.

OOPP, thought the tires looked small like my 16" Fords :blush:.

Howdy from SC and welcome to the forums. Congrats on your new MH too!

welcome from Ca. Looks like a nice rig. Ours is a 93 Southwind and it has been a great project for us. Replaced carpet with Allure flooring, fixed a few leaks and the heater and it is fun.
