I think Patrick has pointed out the best feature of any of the larger custom built motorhomes or trailers towed with a class 7-8....you can get the truck unite fixed at any truck stop 24/7/365...and if you spec your living quarters-you can get appliances replaced at any Home Depot....'specially if everything is 120/220vt electric.....geof-near Cincinnati

Here is a little FYI.
I watched a travel channel show on RV secrets last p.m. They toured Fleetwoods manufacturing facility because they are the worlds largest RV manufacturer. To produce a top of the line Fleetwood Class A it takes 3 days. Next they went to Marathon Coach, a bus conversion co. they take 6000-10000 man hours to complete.
Once Showhauler has a painted, chassis stretched truck it takes 7 weeks.

Well I showed the wife the showhauler and renegade web sites. She wanted to know if they could do custom paint jobs and allow her to select the interior colors. So how flexible is showhauler on this?

Thanks

Bill

Check out these guys.

I talked with them a while back and they said their paint jobs run between about $3K and $45K. Mild to wild.

Buying a custom Show Hauler is like building a custom home. I designed a custom floor plan, chose flooring, fabrics, countertops, cabinet stain colors, windows, capacities everything but fancy paint!

Bill....give Lonnie a call at Showhauler- when I was looking for a used one, he had a guy in California that had one for sale....can't remember the guy's name or phone number now...Lonnie would-he is more customer "orient-tated" than a lot of people in the RV business....I don't have the number right off hand now but 411 will get it for you....then again Sean Clark [WERA] has his for sale.... geof-near Cincinnati
