Don’t get me wrong, they’re pretty good folks it’s just you know you need it done right it… but you know it’s not going to be cheap. Hey! Sounds like the way it is with these coaches…. I can’t have them just patch the roof… just like we can’t just patch your coach. Sometimes you can but it usually doesn’t work out.
Waiting for the guys this morning I paruzed the internet and spent a little time over at James YouTube channel “wanderlustestate”. Forgot how to hyperlink right now sorry but he’s getting in some quality time with his new coach & I can see him growing in confidence as he does more videos. This is the natural progression of a GMC enthusiast….. the trauma of getting one finally, living through getting it safe and now he’s loving life out on the road with a descent coach not worrying of breaking down from something he has no control over. See, that’s the big difference, you can’t ride that log not knowing what to do in case something happens. He’s experiencing things we told him he would so now he can take the experience of being on the road and free to that natural next level. Many get bogged down to where the ^%$#@ motorhome becomes a boat anchor. You have to put something into these machines to get something out. It’s not as much about the budget set by your wallet but more what the 35+ year old coach needs to again be useable. James coach woke up pretty well, a few issues in the shakedown but that’s what a shakedown is all about and it seems from there it’s been downhill for him.
This is what I wish for everyone looking to a vintage RV for their enjoyment. It can work big time but you have to do certain things. The last thing I ever want to hear from a new owner is “if I would have known that before”. Being honest, know one knows until it’s carefully investigated and even then you have to prove your assumptions because you KNOW what they can do to you..
See, this was the issue I have with folks recently purchasing coaches and having issues. Even after checking things issues can heppen but at least you need to try. There’s no guaranty just because you look at something that nothing will go wrong. Any part you don;t replace and sometimes even parts you do fail, still you can’t trust something until you haver gone through it.. like I said though even that does not catch everything… you must be vigilant and when something does happen… as in the Movie “Apollo 13″… work the problem gentlemen. Communication and all of us working together is the only way.
We have Ben F. dropping by to see his wine tour bus project. I’ll try and get pics for you.
Yep, no pics sorry, I’ll try and do better tomorrow, thanks for your support and let me know if I can help.
