The others have HWH slides and air seals.

Woody,

Are you guys thinking of installing a slide in an older coach or is this for something else?

I'm all ears! Would like to have the slide but not the high cost. Maybe build the slide...need to think about this...another project.

heres what we need to do.
I know where theres a stripped out 80 FC,we can buy it with no engine,the interior is already gone.
We can use it for a test,so we know where to cut the hole and do a test on the roof for strenght.
This FC is near my Florida house,so its close by.
They want $3000 for the bus,running,but they will remove the engine and scrap the rest.

Yes I would think before you operate on the SP it might be a good idea to do one on a cadaver first.
