Can anyone tell who did the conversion?

Would it have been better to leave the sleeper off?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewIte...item=4560629132&rd=1

The link is now working.

It's listed under Class A "gas".

A person won't find it if they are looking under the Class A "diesel" Category.

I'm 99% sure it's a Showhauler, interior looks way too much like mine to be anything else. As for the sleeper - personal preference would dictate that, I like it myself lind of like having a sitting room in an rv

I wouldn't have left it off, as it makes a smooth transition to the coach itself, but I would have tried to find a way to trim the top of the upper "edge" of the sleeper, as it sticks up a bit too far. As usual, just my .02!

You're right it can't be, never looked closely at the exterior. The walls are wrong as is the top cap, SH doesn't do rounded. Not a Renegade either since their top piece where the walls meet the rook is different too if I remember correctly.

It is a United Specialties.. sleeper attached to coach with boot only..chassis air ride only none on cab or sleeper or coach, 95- KW... The spec sheet is directly from their literature not specific for this rig. 10 speed manual. accidentally listed under gas class A.. later added to Diesel class A.

True But luckily nothing has shaken loose either, well some stuff has bounced around slightly but I-40 will do that to any vehicle....
