Many of you may remember my old matching 1977 Lance 11.5' monster camper and Burt, my 1977 F250 that I put a TON of $ into (including a one ton rear end to carry that old 4,000lb camper.) I sold the camper a couple years ago, had some family issues, and went to a trailer. Never pulled it so I sold it also last fall in anticipation of going back to a TC, which I have always loved. Soooo..... I did! and here are the pictures of it finally!
I'm also putting Burt in mothballs or selling him and buying a new to me truck, probably a 2000 something GMC dually. I've got my eye on a 2001 GMC 3500 crew cab dually 4x4... with a payload rating of over 5,200 lbs, so that should do me as my new Weekender 910 is rated at 2,700lb dry. I figure from past experiences that by the time I fill it up and add me, tools, dogs, food, yada, yada, I'll be around 4,000lb. So all is good. The old Lance/Ford setup served me well for many, many years and I loved it, but I was really getting tired of a continuing project...
So. Once the truck is purchased (hopefully REAL soon!) I'll see ya on the road again! Yahoo!

Dak, Have enjoyed looking at pictures of your "new" Lance. We have a Lance 1990 and although it is fairly nice it doesn't look nearly as nice as yours. Has it been repainted on outside and re-done on inside. Gotta show those pictures to my husband. Don't imagine we will do any change, just wish we could. We've used it once this year and now hubby is in hip/leg pain. We would love to be going someplace cool. Again, love your Lance.
Thanks all. I bought from the original owner, who "upgraded" to a toy hauler! It was FILTHY!! I spent 2 days scrubbing sticky grease off of literally every surface, including the ceiling! The oven had not really been used, but apparently they liked to fry stuff! No bad smells and non-smokers though, so that was a definite plus. I searched everyday to find this for over 2 months. In 1996 I bought a brand spanking new Weekender exactly like this, only a foot longer but sold it after a few years as I didn't want payments. I always regretted doing that, so this was exactly what I was looking for! I have all the original paperwork on everything, including the original sales brochure, and he was pretty diligent in keeping it sealed. The front window has a small spot of water damage, but it's no big deal to me to fix that, as I replaced the entire side of my last camper! Everything works perfect in it, the fridge is newer and the entire camper is very solid. I'm going to replace all the blinds and that's it! Now I can't wait to get the new truck! I'm a happy camper, even in my driveway! :-)
