Ken- what prep work was done to the lower grey section? I am buying the compressor and gun to paint mine. It has a number of stone chips, but no cracks in the plastic around the bumpers, thankfully. Was yours sanded first? Also was that the Dupont metallic grey paint?

Chris- Ken's is 3/5 feet shorter than the 345's shown around the site. The model # denotes the length. 270 = 27 feet
310 = 31 feet and so on. They go all the way to 36 or 37 feet.
Still 3 feet shorter than some of the huge coaches that are on our highways.

Hi All...
Alansd...How U doin 2day....Thank's 4 the info, I thought they were big, but NOT HUGE..., I sometimes have to unload 40 foot trailers, as I work in warehousing, ( DONALDSON FILTERS ). I sometimes day dream I am in a R/V...and pretend to fit- it out, I know...I know...but it's my AGE....and I am a Brit...lol...
I see why people buy them, the couple we spoke with at FL:, who let us climb all over theirs were realy AMUSED by us...they were PROUD of their R/V....OR had NEVER met an English Family b4...( poor sods )...lmao, ( Don't think they will 4get us in a hurry )
It WAS an experience for ALL of us...I'M sorry I 4got their name, but are certain they came from OKLAHOMA... , the R/V was abt 25 x 7 x 7 and coloured a yellowy brown...with black side windows, and had MORE storage space than my SHED !!!....
Well I gotta big day ahead of me...SHOPPING... !!!
take care now, read u later...Chris.....

Thanks Chris for the nice comments. The picture does make the MH look alot bigger than it really is. Alan, they sanded it down quite a bit. I believe they did use a DuPont paint. Would you like me to get the paint code for you. I'd also be more than happy to give you the name and phone number of the person who did it. He specializes here in Portland in older trailer and Motorhomes. He'd be more than happy to talk about what he did....(he's a great person).

I know some of you said don't go there with the Bubble but I couldn't resist. It turned out better than I ever dreamed. I'm now in the process of finishing the floor and wrapping the walls and ceilings with 1/8" quarter-sawn oak paneling. I'll send some pictures so you can get an idea of what's happening on the interior for those who might be curious.

One last question for the group. In the photo you can see my MH with blue stripe in the background. Now vision me pulling the bubble with the MH. Do I put a small (subtle) stripe near the top on the Bubble to match? Now I know this is way out of line in terms of keeping it original but I've broken that rule and anything goes as long as it has "classey" in it.

Any thoughts on this one?

Thanks
Ken

I've seen motorhomes and toads with matching stripes or paint schemes, to me they look great.

With a little cut and pasting this gives you an idea of what I'm thinking.....4 kids creates a challenge for sleeping quarters. I plan on pulling the Kids room (the bubble).

How about putting the stripe on the same level?

The only problem is on the other side of the trailer the stripe would go through my door which creates some challenges to make it look right (like any of this looks right)....

I am having trouble following the problem with the stripe crossing the door?

How you end the stripe is personal preference.

I like the second option the best, but I would wrap the strip around the rear of the bubble.

Alan, how did you put the survey on this thread. Since you have probably recieved enough feedback on you colors would it be possible to change it to ask the following questions.

No Stripe on the Tailer?
Stripe in the middle?
Stripe on top?
Strip on top and middle?

No I would not. With the stripe that high it would intersect the window?? Then when it is not connected to the MH it would look like any other trailer.

Ken,

Your best bet is to start a new thread. When you create it there are poll options at the bottom of the thread screen.

New threads will also help earn you karma points.
