Well I'm finally home and currently "borrowing" some wifi. I hope it has enough band width to upload some of the pics I took of Randy's Fleetwood Renovation experience. There is nothing like being there but I hope these pics will give you some idea of how flimsy this thing was. Big Green (forklift) completed renovations in twenty minutes.

I think that there's a message here! I saw the pictures of the wrecked BB at the RIV last year, and there is no comparison.
Just another reason to own a bird!!!

Hey Randy
When you get through playing with the wrecked SOB, let me have an answer to the e-mail I sent to you.

Bill,the frig was never found,the tow truck guys said it was laying in the road when they got to the wreck,but it disappeared sometime during the cleanup.
the washer/dryer was in the road also,and i have it,slightly bentup and all kinds of road rash on it!
the tires/wheels have been sold,the engine is a 24 valve 5.9 cummins with a 3060 allison tranny(mine,all mine!) and the genny will be sold to someone,hurricane season is almost here.

steve,the BB that was wrecked last year mowed down over 100 6-8'' pine trees before coming to a stop.

thats how many stumps were left when the tow company got all the trees cut out of the way,while recovering the remains of the coach.
also,the pics you and I saw was after the coach was winched out of the woods,I wonder how much damage was done to the coach getting it back on the road?

Rhardesty,i'll look back through my emails,i don't remember getting one that i didnt reply to!
send it again please!
Randy

Steve,i don't think the bird was repairable,or lets say this,the cost to fix it and the time involved would make it "non-repairable"

You can copy and paste the complete posted series which will include Rob's post, by going to this and doing the same thing;

wrecked SOB

The photos were downloaded directly from Rob's computer and are not currently on a separate web site, but when I get back home I will load them onto a photo web site that you will be able to access off of the forum.
