well it quit raining so we lifted the motorhome off the chassis. was vary tight lifting off. used our wrecker on rear and 2 fork lifts on front to lift it up. rolled truck out from under it. lower it to the ground. put 1 fork under front and pushed back inside shop. wasn't quite straight and had to pull back uot twice to get it inside. hope to put it out side tomorrow and have insulated. will try to take pictures of it.

haven't had much time to work on it lately. had a freind come to align suspension. rear bushings were worn so i replaced then. put longer rear wheel studs in for alum. rims. wasn't getting any where on roof boards so i paid a guy $500.00 to put them on. he did a great job and put more screws on boards than i was going to. ready to start siding now.

and may make tying down easier. will make a stair way or ladder for access also.

Looks pretty cool. Are you putting a window in the front of the bunk area there above the windshield? I'd love to have one there but it seems like most of the class C's I see now don't have them anymore. Wondering if they had problems keeping them sealed up.
