My thoughts on the GoRV Site

What really is unique here is the diversity of folks and their rigs... from authentic restored (or in process of restoring) first-gen bumper pulls and coaches to first-gen conversions (school bus into elegant motorhome type), to  the ones who start with a blank sheet of paper and build their own "right" rig to simply taking a production piece and trying to update and refresh it for another round of service.  They are all great!

Finished pulling up all old carpet and cheesy linoleum rolled flooring - not even the cushy stuff...

Pulled Flooring Out

Well today I couldn't stand it any longer - I pulled up all the old flooring, carpet etc and ready to put a new surface down.

I am in the middle of redoing the back room into an office and jackknife sofa.  There was a queen size bed in there but it left no room for anything else.  And to reach the overhead cabinets, you had to kneel on the bed....  Nope, I can do with a full size bed and stand up in the room, plus have enough space for a real desk for my stuff.
