3 foot roof raise in Northern Arizona

I have a 84pak (39') 1995 Thomas Saf T Line with a 8.3L Cummins and Allison MT643. I'm doing a 3 foot roof raise to it to accommodate 2 large sleeping lofts and leave the entire bottom open for living space.


last time I started to make this thread my computer dropped me after adding 15 pics so I'm going to do this over a few posts.

OferPetessake! Now I gotta have a goat to be one of the cool kids! Between that and the apparent impossibility of getting insurance, there are times when I despair of the whole thing.
