Week three

Well another week went by and progress has slowed on the Dutch Craft. I did find replacement vent units for the roof at a surprising low cost. A local RV repair shop helped me with new frames and covers and also a new gas pressure and tank change over for a lot less than Ii expected ...so roof work this week and then on to interior finishing....yeah.
