I got a chance to run up to Show Hauler and take a look at the motorhome and the M2 for the first time in person. WOW! I love this truck! I really love the look of the 2005 M2 and love the look of the truck as a motorhome. I can tell you that pictures just do not do any conversion justice. They always look so much more impressive in person.
So I arrived up at the factory at about 10 a.m. Saturday and talked with Geryl the Shop Foreman for about 20 minutes. He explained how the shop is setup right now and their goal to pump out 2 rigs per week on a consistent basis by mid to late summer. Currently the frame shop completes 4 rigs per week, but as you move along through the interior rough in and then plumbing & electrical and finally the finished interior, turn out slows down do to the involvement each department has in the build.
So the overall time a truck is in the build process is now longer than in years past, but it gets started sooner. So trucks end up spending some time in the "bullpen" as they get finished at certain times of the build. This is where my truck is now waiting to get into the finish shop and the final stage of the build.
At about this time I met up with Chad and we went into his office to check on when my truck was due into the finish shop and I was very glad to see it was next.
Chad drove me down to the bullpen and I got my first look at the rig and it is so cool! I really am happy with the overall look of the M2 as well as how it looks as a motorhome.
I crawled all over it for 2 hours and during that time Lonnie stopped down and we went over a few things I had questions on and then I let him go enjoy the rest of his Saturday.
So here are a few pics
