Ernie,

I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures. I'm flying into DFW on Sunday to finalize my purchase of Bim Burts 89SP and he, Rick Archie and I are going to install a new rear AC in the afternoon.
I understand that some of your craftsmanship has been applied to this coach and I'm looking forward to seeing it.
I'm also looking forward to meeting you and many of the folks who frequent this great site; if it were not for the expertise that is available here I would not have made the leap of faith to purchase this 22 year old gem.

Oh no we don't want disaster. We applaud comic relief, rube goldberg innovation and bailing wire solutions.

Two men, a tall ladder on gravel, a cut on the hand, and a little luck got ours on the roof. Now I need to do another one.

Since that is the case, you don't want me to take pictures, you need me to take VIDEOS ! I think Rube was a distant relative of mine....

All I will say is that my plan involves a silver maple.

Dan I had a premonition that a tree was in your future.

While waiting for Ernie's pictures, I should tell you that I actually thought about looking up my ancestry to see if there might be a Rube Goldberg type in there somewhere........but I decided not to.
I might find out that Randy is a distant cousin or something. hahah (just kidding Randy)
