Re: the wild blue yonder

Hi, regarding your pics, don't use attachments--that's why you are getting the quota thingy. Open a free account with photo bucket, post your pics there and then to SkOOLIE and it seems that you can post as much as you want Once you have pics on photobucket, email me and I'll show you how to post.

Re: the wild blue yonder

Keith- I need to have a solid metal floor because I dont want to have too much buildup to the finish floor. Right now, I have 6'6" headroom at the center, I'm 6'4", and my wife is 6'. we are giagantors. I plan on insulating the floor from underneath, and applying the finish floor directly to the metal in hopes that we won't have to stoop very much. I definitely DO NOT want to do a roof raise. Trying to be ready for a cross country trip next summer and all.

Ellijay is only 1.5hrs or so from us, would love to come up and see your work, got to wait for my work to slow down some first

Re: the wild blue yonder

I hear you ,although I am/was only 6'2'' I still hit my head on everything!
My 5'2'' spouse doesn't get it and still leaves upper cabinite doors open for me--oh well. For the same reasons as you I added 2" of insulation under the center isle on my SKOOLIE. I'll put the rest of the floor insulation in the bottom of the base cabinets as this is much easier. I agree with you that if you can help it you really don't want to mess with a roof raise unless it is absolutely necessary.

Re: the wild blue yonder

Yeah trunt, messing with the floors is bad enough for me, can't imagine how I could do a roof, although... it might be funny to hear the neighbors talk; I can just hear it now," It was ugly enough to begin with, now that moron went and cut it in half!" The thought of addind a raised section of roof - think trolly top, did cross my mind briefly.

After sleeping on the floor delima, I think I'll try adding a jack and some blocks to the arsenal, maybe adding a constant force pushing the floor up while chiseling/ cutting/ pounding/ bleeding and cursing will be the key to rapid removal, also need to replace my ear muffs. Can't wait to be done with today's job and give this a try.

Re: the wild blue yonder

If your newer Superior has the same body design as my oldie, there is a section in the center of the roof in line with the main walkway that just begs to be trollied out. Since I have only 5'6" of interior height a trolly top is exactly what I am going to do. Climb on top of your bus and see if it has a separate section--it would be interesting to know if Superior stuck with one design all the way to the end.
