Hi Rich!! We had a 19 foot 1994 Slumber Queen and drove to and from the east coast of Mexico in 2007-8. We just bought an 18 foot 1981 Taurus which needs LOTS of tlc and repairs....a work in progress. But it will be wonderful when she is done!!!

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.

Thank you

Life got in the way

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…
