Yeah, I purchased it through Rob in La Junta. I will be coming up through Seattle and would love to stop by and see your rig. I've seem the photos on your website and have been drooling over it ever since. I was actually going to email you with a few questions about your build but if you're in Seattle I'd love to stop by and chat to you in person.
Well, picked up the U500 today and am in the process of driving it back. Lots of fun so far and quite a bit different from the ol' 1550L!
Can't wait see how this turns out, what's it's cruising speed?
I've been cruising at around 65mph. I could go a little faster but find that a comfortable pace.
Sounds pretty good to me, I just need make sure one will fit in the driveway!!!
Congratulations and glad you made it through all the red tape !
We will enjoy your camper construction, when you start...
Save a Life, Adopt !
On my way back home I was able to stop in and see Rob and Nina Blackwell who have a U500 with a gorgeous GXV build. I haven't stopped drooling over their rig and my U500 looks tiny sitting next to theirs. Thanks Rob and Nina for your kind and generous hospitality and for showing me your great rig . . . love the yellow!!
