John,

What specific ProGuard product did you use on your TPO roof?

Do you know if it comes in a Tan color?

Thanks

BigJohn,
Roughly how much did you have to lift the frame to get the tires off the ground?

ROC, I used the Supercoat product from Pro Guard. I'm not sure if they have it in different colors, but I would imagine they did since the Liquid Roof line comes in the tan. If you can, give Polly (I think that was her name) a call at ProGuard. (717) 336-7900. She will be able to speak with the guys there and see what all they can do for you. Very helpful people.


RedHorse1, I'm not going to swear on this, but I think I picked our rig up about 4 inches or so. You can always get it up about 3-4 inches or so, then jack up each individual wheel at the axle end under the spring mount and remove each wheel like that if you don't want to go up too much. Then of course you'll have to jack up each axle in to reinstall the wheels when done.

And we're off. Left sometime before lunch this morning and got semi set up this afternoon. Lots of work to do to get it how I want, but we're good for tonight. Still have to build my temporary deck. That's what the pallets stacked up are for. The cargo trailer you see is my man cave / mobile shop / storage etc. Quite a bit smaller than what we left this morning, but allows me to do a few hobby projects here and there. All is good and kids are crazy happy to be somewhat on the road, again.


I'm sure I'll make a few posts here and there on things we do different full timing opposed to normal weekend warrior camping.

Thanks John,

I appreciate the feed back on the ProGuard Supercoat and contact info.

Good luck with everything.

A few more things I'm considering doing and wanted to hear any comments. Probably ditching the crappy sink for a stainless since you can't even put a #8 cast iron in there without fear of breaking the sink. Junk IMO. Also considering ditching the shower for a tub. Since the tub doesn't have the depth this shower has, I'd utilize that void behind the enclosure with cubbies for each bunk. We have young kids and the shower is useless. The wife said from day one she'd rather have the tub, but red flagged me early on from ditching the shower. She's not as gung ho about cutting good stuff out for something else, until now that we're full timing in it.

And finally, how many would buy this rig if I put it up for sale. Lots done on this rig you will never get off a lot. I know I said I wouldn't ever sell it, but there's always the chance since we are looking at a bigger full time rig.

I think the sink replacement sounds like a great idea. For the shower to tub mod, I would prefer the shower. For us the shower was a major selling point even though we have a four year old and an infant. Our 4 year old takes showers at home half the time and we figured we would just hose her down in the shower and bring the portable baby bath for the little one. We are recreational users, though so I could see that getting old full timing. A shower with a little size was a make or break for me because the little tubs made me feel like the walls were closing in.

If we weren't picking up our rig next Saturday, we'd buy yours in a minute. With the shower, of course!

Thanks for the reply Wannabe. Hadn't changed anything yet, just debating. We had a small garden tub / shower in one of our previous rigs, so hadn't found anything to top that yet. Best of both worlds then. You'd think being a bunk house they'd consider "kids", but very few do. Heartland is one of the few that have a big tub in a bunk house, but my opinions of them are too harsh to own one.

The shower was a big selling point for us too. It's about as big as my shower stall at the S&B. Our son is almost 16 months, and I can see how consistent bathing would be a hassle. For now, we've been known to wash him in the sink, or he showers with DW (since there's enough room in there for both of them). I think as far as the shower is concerned, I'd look for a workaround. Like could you use a Rubbermaid tub or something? Put it in the floor of the shower and use it like a bath tub? I know it's not optimal, but it could work... And then you don't lose the huge shower as a selling point if you sell it for something bigger. Though, the storage for the bunks would be nice I think.

As for the sink, I'll be watching you closely on this one. I've heard plenty of stories about knives or hot utensils dropped in the cheap plastic sink and going right through. And forget about putting heavy pots in there. I'm always tiptoeing around that thing. If you find a deal and I end up copy-catting you, I'll probably do the faucet at the same time; that thing is getting on my nerves, and I couldn't imagine using it for full-timing.
