That's a beaut!!!, is there any way you can put certain thread subjects on ignore??,I was cleaning up the yard the other day and started looking at the Travco and almost said outloud "So i'm thinking I might go ahead and get it finished,afterall we're never gonna be able to sell it in this economy..." Probably good I kept my mouth shut,it's becoming the Gigantic Blue Gorrilla in the corner taking up the whole driveway to the rest of the fam.Kid who is 13 actually leaves the room at the mere mention of it

Best advice is to get a well used and loved MH,sitters are sitting for a reason.

How about small motorhomes?

Fits in any normal parking spot, and has just about everything a larger MH has (generator, shower, toilet, hot water, microwave, A/C). Can actually use it as a second car.

Who makes this? Where do I find out more? Mr. Google has been most UN-helpful

It's a class B, kind of an RV niche market, but there's a number of manufactures and models. Good place to start research is HERE, check out the FAQ sticky.

Thanks. Senor Google was so un-cooperative because I was seeing Floodtek 170 and not Roadtek170. Man, I need new glasses.

Read this thread last night and it made me run down and grab the old girl out of storage today to turn her back into a shiny thing. Everything worked great just like it's supposed to - 2000 American Dream - Spartan Chassis - 350 Cummins ISC with Banks - 6 speed Allison tranny - looks like a yacht with all the wood and the awesome Engel : Thanks for the good times today there NWGS
