Don't know about that easy and time saving. Looks like a more work than mine.

Wait, I lied. Well, mis remembered. I did have to shorten the walls something like 2 inches. I would need to trim a lot to get it against a wall. My bus has 77 inch max ceiling and I lose about 3 inches to the thicker floor and celling.

Trimming was easy enough to do.

Stopped by the Liquidation Mart for my weekly visit and ended up scoring some flooring. $10 a box (24sf), or $.41/sf

Keep in mind I'm ready to jump in the truck and haul butt. So I call him the next day and ask about the door. He says he'll send me a pic of it. No word for the rest of the day, next day I text and he says pic didn't go through, he'll resend it and does. It's the door I need. "When can I pick it up and where?" I'll text you address he says. Didn't text the address and now won't answer the phone or texts.
So i tried calling and texting more over the last few days, no response. Tonight I called and he answered. Said "you're a tough guy to get ahold of." Said he'd been out of town and just got back. Okay, so you don't check texts or calls made? Whatever. Anyway scheduled to pick up the door on Sat.

Hey do you know what size the Onan was in that motor home? I saw one pop up on Ebay somewhere in GA. Listed just a day ago. Listing says "should work, just pulled from an RV".

FWIW I think the more modern inverter type generators may be a better buy. Quieter and more efficient. I've been holding out for a deal on a dead rv or a decent used onan but I'm starting to consider just getting a couple of the "suitcase" type and going with those to save weight and noise.

, this one would have been

Yes, this one would have been a compromise, but it was the bonus package that made this deal so good. I'm pissed, if I were the seller I would have handled it more fairly.

Better price than I thought. I checked my bank account this morning and noticed the charge and 2 lines later a refund for same.
Next time I'm in there I'll let them know of their mistake.
