I thought I would drop in and say we are still around. Been slow last year. Hoping for it to be better in 2011!

I'm very glad you're still here! I feel bad for the companies that have closed up. United Specialties, the maker of mine, is apparently shut down. I went to the Mpls. RV show today. There were huge crowds there. We've had record snow and cold here in MN so I think it's getting people to want to get out this summer. Only one truck conversion in the whole place. A Renegade Ikon, mid $500k list, from Eldorado Trailer Sales. I suggested to the salesman that maybe he could consider bringing a entry level t/c next time to give people the idea that it is possible for normal people to get into a t/c. He seemed to be paying attention.

I heard US went out.

We can build a coach compariable to the ICON for 100 grand less. I hear Renegade and Showhauler are back to building a few coaches now. Hopefully this is something to look forward to in this economy!

Newbie here. Just have a question for the guys at Hawk. I purchased a unit with a garage in the rear. Long story short, a car caught fire inside and pretty much cooked it. The truck is fine and everything below the floor is fine. It didnt even melt the vinyl floor tile. Here is my question. I would like to remove the garage, shorten the unit to a 26' living quarters and add a slide out. Unfinished inside. All of the plumbing is still good from the floor down. The only damage the truck sustained was heat. The headliner(nylon) melted but the tweed door panels and the dash still look new. The framework is fine but all the skin has been removed as well as the windows. Looks like most of the hard fab work is still fine. Interested in the job? And can you give me just a ballpark of how much? Thanks
