VERY nice, Bill. You've gotta have one BIG knot in your belly in anticipation of this rig! I know I would!

We are down to 1 week to the finish of the rig and a few more for the graphics.

Oh how the days have slowed to a crawl!

......BTW...I just found out what "AMISH Cabinets" means....a Quaker Furniture maker here said, " Amish means little strips of wood glued together to make big pieces of wood"....."kinda like what they do in High School Wood Shops....."?....I felt immediate relief as I taught woodshop for about 8 years in a highschool-thought It was something new in woodworking-didn't realize that in just meant NO SCRAP....it all[except dust] becomes furniture......geofkaye-AKA "Relieved"

uh oh!

I am only 39 and all my hair is already gray! Actually, it is on it's way to white.

I keep it super short, who wants a big bushy head of gray hair.

Started turning when I was 28 and the first company I owned. Really turned on the second company, and now that I have 3 going at onetime it had no chance!

Boy, I know what that's about!!
A trim seems to take less and less time, every time! I could save BIG bucks by shaving it all off and just using the ol' Norelco from now on....it might take a little liquid bravery, however.......

Dear Warpath. Why did you choose to have rubber for the bottom of your outside storage bins and not have them enclosed in sheet metal? Thanks by the way for an excellent site!

Hey Kevin welcome to the site!

All of the bins are enclosed in sheet metal except the LP & battery bays which are half enclosed with a grated floor. The storage bays that have nothing in them get a indoor/outdoor dark grey carpeting glued to the walls and ceiling, the floors get a rubber mat.

Sewer bays get sprayed with a rubberized coating.

Thank you for the welcome! I have really enjoyed this site. I have been reading it for almost a year now!

I was at showhauler last friday. I noticed the rubber mat on several coaches. The bins I happen to feel did not have anything in them, like batteries or holding tanks. They seemed to be just regular storage. Perhaps I felt the few that are not going to be used for regular storage.
thanks again.

Kevin

........for a $100k+ I'd expect to have the final say as to what goes in each bin rather than some floor worker making that choice......Lonnie seemed to be the type of salesperson that would accomodate the ''investor'' to the max degree.....I say ''investor'' because for a $100k+ it is an investment......and a real good tax writeoff come April 15th for + years and it can be loaned out for cash and never reported[oops]......they are a money maker if you do your homework.....something on the order of $110 a day.......geofkaye
