I think ANY CHANGES done to the original structure of a vehicle demand a closer investigation and rightfully so. Take one example: roof raises.....how many people have raised the roofs of their buses vs the number of different ways they accomplished it. Who's to say my way is right & yours sucks. (Ya...I know who's to say that ).

I am a dreamer & believe me I can come up with some hair raising ideas (ask Clint he'll tell you). Luckily, he's more levelheaded than I so not all of my suggestions come to fruition.

Unfortunately, they are others out there who don't have anyone levelheaded to stop the changes that they want to make. Underwriters know this and therefore are leary of changes made by an individual without a knowledgeable person to sign off on theses changes.

Hence, the problems with getting insurance unless changes are performed by a qualified individual.

There are soooooo many skoolies out there with all forms of changes and it would be impossible for any investigator to be knowledgeable on all these changes.

Just saying folks!

The roof was so frigin hot when I was up there this morning that I had to get down for a break when half finished. After 15 min break (shower drink water and fresh clothes) I finished it. I tried rolling it on from the paint tray as recommended but it was thickening in the tray. I just poured some on and spread it with the roller as I went along. It is fairly even and the second coat will go along way to even things out and improve the coverage. Some spots are a little thinner than others right now.
Pics or it never happened.

I think he means turning it 90*. That way you don't have to be a monkey to get in and won't break you neck when you step out to take a leak at 2am.

Just thinking a little more about this. How do you go through a drive-thru if it is turned 90*?

To maximize use of the roof space, and so you can get safely into the door of the tent trailer without having to walk on thin air.
