Thank you Rich for the welcome.  And that's a great idea about cutting the back and shortening it up.  I still want to use the drop down for the bed but a coupe of inches won't matter on that. I'm looking forward to this and will take pictures as work progresses.

I was chatting briefly with Tina last night and was asked about pictures of the Travelcraft I call the Palace and I was reminded that I had none posted. A good while back I had the idea of revamping my picture file. It seamed like every one was updating their profiles and I jumped on the band wagon and got as far as deleting old pictures and changing my profile picture . Well as life often does, I was thrown a few curve balls from poor health to the loss of my very best friend of ten years…
