Thank you for posting Flatouf but you are about to be slapped on the wrist by a moderator very soon as they won't allow people to SELL their moho in this section; you need to post in the Classified section to do that.

Funny enough though, once you have posted in the Classified section, another member may post a link to your ad in this thread; but this thread is all about "hey, I saw a moho for sale"; not "hey, I have a moho for sale". See the distinction?

Cheers
Tony

PS I do like your rims but are they 16"'s or 19.5's"?

Kind of a dumb question. You have a picture of the drivers seat and seat belt. Was that an original configuration or did you put it in? If you did put it in what did you attach the shoulder portion to?

79 Airstream 24ft.

My apologies for submitting the plug directly. I plan on placing ads on Airforums and Freds site as well in the next few days.

I am moving to the state of Washington to build my retirement home. That should take many years to complete.
I've always said "i'm good to the last nail"!

This was a 3 year project that started out as a minor cosmetic re do. I'm sure everybody who reads this is laughing so hard that they are falling over, and choking trying to catch their breath! As another member once put it, "one thing leads to 20 more things".

The wheels are 16" I'm not sure if 19.5 could fit in the front wheel wells, but it sure would look cool with 19's.


The 3 point seat belts are new. I installed them. the retractor mechanism is bolted to a metal bracket which is thru bolted in the floor.

I had the existing seat steel framework modified to accept the lap portion of the belts.

We have discussed the 3 point belts in the forums in the past. Most people don't feel the necessity, but I feel more secure, even if the fridge goes flying by me!

Marty,

The shoulder harness has a metal plate 8" w/ 4 bolts drilled and tapped into the structural rib. please see attached photo.

That's a very clean install. I need to do the same thing to my 93....and I'm all about doing a bit of industrial espionage from ti.e to time.

Nice job. Interesting, how did you get to the structural rib and was there any work done on the weight loading and whether it is sufficient to withstand an impact?

It does look very clean but I would be concerned with the lap belt anchoring to the seat. Mine go to the floor through steel. Unless the seat pedestal is anchored with extra reinforcement, the seat can become detached in a collision, especially with the weigh of a person tied to it.

Wayne, on all of the coaches I've worked on the seat pedestals are bolted to 1" x 2" steel tubing that is part of the floor structure. On mine I went so far as to add a 1/4" x 2" plate under the 1" x 2" for added support. The tubing tends to buckle slightly as you tighten the bolts holding the pedestal in place. The flat plate solved that problem.

No worries.

I don't have to worry about the fridge.......my passenger does.

When I was ready to tackle the removal of the broken fridge in my 310, I lined up all my tools ready to tackle this seemingly impossible task, only to find that someone before me just pushed it into place. But it was held in place by the gas line and electric wires

some good reading concerning this 1991 300LE . I remember when it was for sale and found it to be a seemingly desirable unit, beautiful and supposedly with all systems ready to go

Geez, at least mine had two tiny screws edge ways into 1/4" luan and two threaded lag screws into suspect plywood. More than enough to stop a couple hundred lbs of loaded fridge from going somewhere.

Cheers

Not exactly a complete motorhome but if you're looking for replacement sun visors these might be of interest.

My 280's sun visors always flip down and scare the cr@p out of me when I hit a bump. Any tips on tightening that up? Maybe I need to shove rubber bands in the tunnel that the metal rod goes through or something to give it better grip.

Probably just have to tighten the nyloc nut that is inside the bracket that holds the visor to the ceiling cap. My guess is there is a spring behind the nut.
