Well, It's been almost 3 months working on my Old Fleetwood Prowler.
I'm not fast, I worked on it when I had no obligations for the day.
Not saying I'm finished, but the bigger job is complete.

NOW...
Tomorrow I start to clean out all the tools, stains, and saw dust.
Then I'm gonna mount a tiny 19" TV, and buy new bedding.
Lastly I'm gonna hang the curtains Barbara made.
(I already put up new brackets and rods...)

Bout time to go to the Mountain. I can hardly wait.

THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN A BLAST. [emoticon]

Finally completed work on the 75 Fleetwood Prowler today.
It took me longer to do the work than I had thought.
Persistance and Youtube kept me going.
And I found and ordered parts on the Internet.

I think I have stocked everything but food.
Maybe next week we take it out.
I planed to call it 'The Daniel's' or 'The Blue Line',
but my wife prevailed. It's 'Ole Man Dan'.
I used that when I shot in the Single Action Shooting Society.
I also used Ole Man Dan on this forum a couple of years ago...
I couldn't get back on with it, so I made a fresh start.
That's all for now.

Well... We finally camped at Desoto State Park.
Happy to report everything went smoothly.

I saw a number of smaller campers and quite a few with no slides.
These were offset by a lot of 40' or better behemoths.
Didn't seem to be much middle ground.

I did talk to one of the guys who stopped to ask about our Fleetwood Prowler.
He was in a big camper and was fussing because his camper barely fit his space.
Go figure. State parks have more smaller spaces than big landing strips.
