....mase -you are one of the very satisified owners-just how many people do you suppose that are constantly moaning about their choices and living in discomfort and misery...or in some cases flat out danger-especially with kids aboard.....some of the rigs I've seen for sale on the used market belong in the landfill?....geof

Actually, I think you have to be very careful here. One of the issues that the conversion market has is the flexibility to be very creative. The good is you get it your way, the bad is that one mans perfect conversion is most others worst nightmare. If you are the type of person that can purchase something and be happy with it for 5 or more years, than get creative. But if you like change than you better consider building something that is more mainstream. Because when you go to sell your perfect conversion, your going to get hammered on the resale value. Just like the ebay unit.

"UNIT RUNS AND DRIVES GREAT, WILL RUN 85-90 ALL DAY LONG"

I don't think I would want to be around that size rig while it is doing 85 or 90.

.....my Volvo is set for 102mph but I run out of guts before it runs out of grunt....another issue is if you want to remodel/redecoate from time to time-that needs to be addressed when the coach is being built....that is the advantage of a DIY/interior unite-whereas with a factory unite it is both expensive and hard up update....and they need to be updated about every 5 years or so....you'll get tired of looking at that same stained and varnished wood.....least I sure do.....geof

CM,
Note that it said it would run all day..nothing mentioned about stopping it... or turning it.. It seems the slightest dip or driveway would cause it to scrape bottom... and the load on the front axle must be tremendous. especially without a load in the 'garage'..
Mase,
sorry to hear about her problems..I hope everything is alright..glad she is not hurt..the 'lost' email I sent you included a few comments concerning her ..if everything was alright since I hadn't heard from her for a while.. give her our best wishes..
Still studying and researching...
John

You said it vapoppa " thats why i say think it through 'til you're damn tried of thinkin' - one more time -- then build it the way you want".
When and if you sell it you will lose big on it, even if its more mainstream.
