Folks after a long wait, we finally got 227 moved to its new home! Thanks to Kyle, Tom, Newbeemc9 (sorry newbee I never did get your name!) and Bruces trucking! We moved her by Landoll some 280 miles. We blew one trailer tire, and lost a teardrop, but she's home now where I can get started working on her. Wish me luck and money!

Sorry to hear about the teardrop  Cry , they looked fine - just goes to show you can't always trust an old rubber - gasket, that is.  Grin

So, how long did the '4 hour' trip take?

Let the fun begin!

Robert---Labor day of WHAT year? haha

Kyle--took us about 7.5 hours to get home! We made a quick stop at a convenience store for junk food, and then back on the road--until the blow out! Middle of nowhere! Oh well...

A teardrop is the small triangular window on the side at the front of the upper level on a Scenicruiser.

They have a compound curve & are very expensive if you can find one in glass. Hence they are named after the first thing that happens when you realize you have to replace one.  Wink

  Done is relative,  Get r goin by Labor Day!!! Shocked

Advice from George Meyer I think,

Try to use it as soon as possible,  even if you hang sheets for walls, throw in camp potty, grab the cooler and use it.  else it could become a stagnant project. Smiley



Congratulations and Welcome to the Madness!!
