YES SIR!!
I do 2 coaches a month. Products range from acacia, an exotic species to Hickory. I aim for the upper end coaches Bluebird, Prevost, Newell, etc
A 4 slide Newell is due here in a couple weeks with the drop down floor.

This Newell had the HWH drop down floor in front of couch. The floor drops down on one side and then the other side comes down and slides under main floor. If you see some white lines- it is dust as I'm messy and don't clean up till the end. Curves and angles, oh my

Default Seeing double?

How many coaches have you done throughout your career Ernie?

Parked next to her twin at this year’s Q. The difference? Ernie installed floors (3 yrs ago). Still one of our best upgrades. His trademark stairs and zero molding installs are world famous. Took the inside pics below this year when the desert afternoon setting sun was streaming through the windows .

Acacia is probably the go to species that I do most of. How many have I done? All I know is I do 2 coaches a month. And, since I'm old, can't remember how many I have owned, actually- except birds- and have had 4 of them. My old 83 PT40 is for sale in weatherford. I don't own it- a dealer has it. They actually got it running- and the generator, also. They want 25K for it- overpriced, in my opinion.
Thanks for the kind words
