Rear corner panel replace

Well I finally got around to replacing the left rear corner panel that was damaged when we bought our coach 2 years ago.

Which turned into partial floor replacement, I found the water tank had a patch which was leaking which became the partial floor replacement.I welded that up yesterday. Had to make new inside corner replacement panels. plus a bunch of other related issues.Still have to paint the banana wrap and reinstall the rear bedroom.

Thanks for the compliment guys, You wouldn't believe how often that pipe wrench is called upon


Mike
Would you know anything about the South Park Campground in Gibson City just north of you. I am planning to stop there on our way to Sturgis SD in Aug. I will have that wheel well molding with me.

I know Im a corn ball, and I dont collect old tools. But I sure love em and even more when they are still being used. I cant help but think about the hands that have wrapped around that wooden grip and the number of times its been put to work. i think old tools like that have a soul of some sort.

I'm with you on the old tools. You would'nt belisve how many times I have used that wrench where nothing else would work.

Would you happen to know anything about the South Park Campground in Gibson City just north of you. We are planning to over nite there on our way to Sturgis SD in Aug, It says they have about 15 sites and it is in the middle of town.

I will have the fender well trim with me for your coach

I dont know about that campground but its only 30 mins from my home. Ill ask around. Are you traveling down from the north and then going to head west? If youre just looking for a stop over let me know your route and I may be able to find something nice. Unless of course you have reason to stop near Gibson City.

Awful nice of you to bring that trim, thats the worst looking piece on my 310.

Tried to post but something got squirrelly. Anyway, Im not familiar with that park but it looks just fine. Gibson City is about 30 mins from our home, its a small little farming community. Huge grain elevator and processing plant. Nice little slice of midwest small town. Cant go wrong with the price. What route are you going to take west? You know we just did the trip to Colorado and traveled US36 all the way and back. Ive driven both I80 and I70 before heading west and Im telling ya, we will travel US36 from here on out. Great road conditions and a real pretty drive through MO and Kansas. It really didnt take much longer than driving the interstate. A couple hrs at most. Relaxed compared to the interstate also. We would go miles and not see another vehicle.

Thank you for remembering that trim piece. Its the worst looking part of my exterior.

Beautiful work with the corner replacement, and I'll bet it took you the better part of an afternoon to do it.
I'll be keeping it in mind next time I back up!!

I think 36 might be a bit to far south, I think I will be coming across 24 through Indiana, no reason to stop in Gibson City just looked like a nice spot. Not sure if we will cross at Port Huron MI or Buffalo NY.

Should probably go north west from your area maybe pickup 14 in Wis or Minn
I only have 2 weeks holidays. My old coach dosen't like mountain country very much.

Ill 136 to Iowa 218 N looks pretty good

Nice work! Where did you find your banana wrap. I'm having a hard time finding it for my 95.

It is the same one that was on the coach just repainting it. I am also looking for the right rear banana wrap if anyone on the forums knows of one
