Re: Rolling Motel Room

HA!!!! Love your Lingo! BTW, my hubby noticed in an earlier post somewhere that you are a Travis McGee fan? We were just wondering if you'd got around to building your RollsRoyce pickup yet?? Is that coming up on your "to-do" list???

No, no 'Miss Agnes' on the list

But I live aboard my own version of the Busted Flush and I have faithfully, lo these many years, followed Mr. McGee's retirement plan - take your retirement as you go, whenever you can get it and in whatever size chunks you can grab ... life's short. Currently in a retirement phase ...

Re: Rolling Motel Room

Just an exterior shot, took this a couple of days ago after I got back from 'Tank Day' festivities over at the airport, empty some, fill some at the RV park there followed by a grocery run.


Pretty much just as it rolled outta North Carolina a few decades ago, the white paint is still the factory paint job, the brown stripes are mine.
The only holes I added (can you add a hole?) were the two RV baggage doors, the 6"x6" hole below the door and a 4"x6" RV style access hatch that you can't see really in this picture, just behind the front wheelwell.
The access door behind the front wheelwell is for the propane lift switch, in the forward 'baggage' compartment carries the system stuff - water pump, etc, the aft compartment hold the generator fuel tank, hoses and junk and the hole below the door is an entrance 'step' for when I don't have the boarding ladder up and is an access point for checking/adding oil in the 5kW generator that sits behind it.
Pretty plain, but I liked the way it looked when I bought it, so tried to keep it that way.
