'92 Land Yacht on the road again

Took her out for the first time since purchasing it in November 2011. So far so good. Engine ran well and no issues with handling or overheating. Tires are a little out of round, brakes still seem a little weak and it takes time for her to get up to speed, but nothing unexpected for an 18,000 lb GVW motorhome on a P30 chassis v/s my GMC Savanna 3500 with an 8.1L Vortech engine. I guess it's all what your use to.

Now it's down to the details and getting her stocked. First planned multi-night trip is to Road Atlanta for the Petit Lemans in October. May do some overnighters between now and then though just to sort it out. Feels good to know that the engine, trany and brakes seem to be back up to snuff.

Rechecked the records and all total, I have just over $6200 invested including original purchase price. So far a decent investment I think.
