That's great news, Gene! Hope it looks as good in person as it does in the pictures. Be tough on the dealings. But polite, hahahahaa.

Congrats. Still in looking stage myself. I couldn't even get my wife to drive my class A... can't imagine her driving something that resembles a real truck... although her daily driver used to be a 3/4 Ford, 4 speed w/granny... don't know when she changed... you'd think after 45 years I have her figured out ;-)

Cool, I don't have much help on getting her to drive it tho. My wife hates to drive my full size conversion van. She wouldn't even consider taking the helm of the big rig. Her Rav4 is about right for her.

Do you have facebook? That's how I host most of my pictures. It's not too hard. You should be able to save the pictures from that dealer listing to a file on your computer. Then put them into a album on your facebook. Then link to them from here. Or you can just link to the picture from here. You have to bring up the picture and then you right click on it and select "copy shortcut" and then in your reply box here you type: [img]and then insert that copied part here by holding the ctrl button and typing the letter v[/img] So, it will look something like this:

The problem with linking to a picture that way is that when they take down the picture from their site after the rig is sold or whatever, your link will no longer work.


I'll try to post a picture I got off their web site:

Okay, got it. But, that was done by linking to their ad for it. If I was you I'd save all those pictures of it before they remove it from that listing. I'm not sure how you can save them tho. They have them in some sort of playback thing that I couldn't figure out how to save each one from. Anybody else figure out how to save the pictures? Here's the lising for it: http://www.fivertrailer.com/in...ndid=4&invdetail=175

Bob, thanks again, i love seeing the Rig posted. It will be headed up to Silver Crown in Chicago from Oklahoma this week. There was a small punchlist worth of stuff that needed to be repaired and was included in my deal. Additionally i will be inquiring about Solar Panels/ Some kind of WIFI setup/ and the addition of a small door that will lead to the garage, and a few other things---then we will pick it up after the winter, Gene.

That's great news. Very neat. Can you send their web master an email asking him/her to email you all those pictures they have of it? They should be able to do that for you if you tell them you bought it. Unless you figured out how to save all the pics off their site. Do it before they trash the files.
