Nice job.

Thanks. Next job is to adjust brakes, check and repack wheel bearings and inspect suspension. I note that you upgraded your shackles etc., I may have to do that before heading to SW USA.

Adjusting brakes continually is what made me upgrade to disk brakes. The wet bolt kit was a must do when I saw the crap that they put in at the factory. Check your local spring and axle shop. The place I bought my new axles and wet bolt kit, only makes axles, springs and supplies parts, so their prices weren't inflated like the RV stealership.

The wet bolt kit would be the first thing I did if I bought a new camper.

I'm surprised an Ontario boy would be going to the SW, my favorite part of the lower 48. What part of the SW are you heading to?

Heading to Texas, then NM then Arizona and finally California on the east side of the Sierra Nevada. Have 3+ months to do it.

Nice.

Make sure you hit the Carlsbad Caverns for a day or two, if you have never been there before. It is truely a sight to behold both day and night

AZ and NM are our favourite states, we could use 3 months for them alone. On your way home, if you have the time Southern Utah has lots to offer, if you like rock formations and how nature has carved them out. A few days at Moab is always on our stopover list.

If fishing is part of your trip, then along the east side of Sierras between south of the Carson City and Mammoth there are lots of places to dry camp along the river. I nice detour would be Lake Tahoe area.

Nice solution. I like the shelves, but how do you keep things from falling out while traveling?

My TV fits in that area on my CTS 16 FB, also the antenna cable and booster is in the ceiling in that area, I installed a 32" LED and DVD player there, my dining table fits under the top and a small storage area beside the strapped in table has more storage area so we put the broom, swifter duster etc in there..
