Shell is back on. Trying to locate and fix all seam leaks, before rewiring.

Burlesque!

If a total shell-off is a full monte, then I think this survey fails to capture the large number of us who are taking a more moderate approach (aka burlesque???). I interpret "burlesque" as the teasing exposure of the least amount of skin necessary for safe restoration.

We're midway on that. The floor is up in sections at the front and rear.

I think there could be a 'burlesque' thread too, but they are definitely two different procedures. I'm dying to find out how Eric is doing, we don't hear from him very often. (Eric, 59toaster, coined the 'full monty' terminology)

I know he was having some health problems and hope everything is working out ok.

Boy do I feel bad. I thought Full Monte meant a "full remodel", not necessarily a "shell off". Looks I'll have to rename my main thread "Doin' the Full Monte (almost)".

Mary, keep those Great Ideas coming....Maybe you could start a new poll!

It means what YOU say it means, it's was your thread

We just have to remember a "monty" is a shell off, and a "monte" is a total remodel. I guess some people, like me, will eventually do a "monty-monte".

I would vote if there was a option for where I am. I am in the process of removing the shell. I have a little to go before the shell comes off, like repairing the roof so the shell doesn't fold up when I lift it off the frame.
So the option of "Shell almost off" would be my vote.

Too funny, Don! Now we have to watch spelling too!

I think it's, ahem, kind of like religion...

There are two sects...

The church of the "take it off, take it all off honey!" and

The church of "let them think about it, but leave the sailors wondering!"

No sense arguing about religion. Jim, don't you suppose it's time for a show of some faith in our aluminum temples?

Swish, swish,

Kabooom!

Mary

I think the two camps are more a matter of "I want to go camping this year" or "I want to go camping next year (or the year after if I get carried away)"!

Seriously, I salute those brave enough to do the full-monty. I felt a half-monty solved my problems sufficiently. And now I am going camping...

One to camp (68 Caravel) one to go broke (59 Overlander). I want a classic MH but the Chairperson of the Committee of Everything didn't even respond to the hint. Not a good sign.
I have to go buy some powerball tickets. If I win I'm going to pay someone to do the polishing. And maybe buy one of those new classic MH if they make a 28 footer.
