Hey thats not far at all. I'm an OSU alum myself. (Ohio State & Oklahoma State). I don't even have kids, let alone grandkids so I'll keep the class year to myself.... The lady from WBCCI here in OK laughed when I told her old I was.

You have any experience with the AS dealer in OKC? I haven't even been there yet.

A co-worker suggested Allied Foam in OKC for new bunks and couch cushions for me, have you heard of them?

There's no A/S dealer in OK -- only a service center which is Griffin RV. We take ours over to Tom when things are just out of my capabilities -- the funny thing is that we bought our '71 off craigslist from a place up in Enid, and it was originally purchased from a place called Brassfields RV off Route 66 here in OKC. Long story short, that dealership was owned by Tom's father and Tom used to work there growing up and serviced our A/S when it was brand new. The guy is totally awesome...but it does come at a price.

We bought the foam at Joann's. It was on sale and used a holiday coupon. I used the original covers for a template for the gaucho covers.

Ah, I see. So If I need something from Griffins, ask got Tom. Gotcha.

Miranda spent her whole life in Ohio, and then just across the border in PA. I found her on Ebay. The guy lived about 3 hrs from my hometown in OH, so I sent my Dad the $ and he went to pick her up. She stayed at his house till i was home for Christmas and could tow her home. He also said he had to make sure she was 'road worthy' before he turned his daughter loose on a 1000 mile journey.

Thats my plan too. Even though my gaucho is hideous, at least its there to be used as a pattern. The bunks are gone though, which I figure cant be too bad since its just a rectangle. Lucky I'm pretty handy with a sewing machine, and I recently scored a serger on craigslist so I'm ready to get to work!

We dont have a JoAnn's in Stillwater, but I was going to check with Hobby Lobby. I dont know if they have foam or not.

I don't know where the link is but the company that redid her A/S had video of showing her the inside of it. They also decorated her tour bus.

I don't think Hobby Lobby has it. At least, I don't remember ever seeing it there.. but I may not have looked in the correct place. You might be able to order it online from JoAnn's. Just keep in mind it stinks when you first buy it. We let it air out in the house for about a month before we started to use it.

I wrote up the pattern I used on our blog.... although I am not sure if it makes sense to anyone other than me. It's not complicated to sew ... but you are working with so much fabric at once that it is tiring.

That won't be difficult -- Tom owns it (Tom Griffin) and does 99% of the work himself...his lovely wife runs the front office and usually answers the phone if you call.

I'm sort of a newbie down here in Norman town. Mine is a '76 Safari 23' all totally refreshed and polished. We have a traveling group down here of three vintage AS's and one tiny teardrop! A '64, a '68 and my '76. Look for Farrel Droke on FB for pics!

Hi farrel,
seems the Okie contingent is growing. Would love to see pics but no facebook here. It was interfering with my day to day activities.. and too many people found me that I didn't want to!

I really like Tom. I have often gone in just to ask a question or buy a part and he has always taken time to visit and answer my questions. There is no attachment of the body to the bumper assembly on a 68 so I was a little worried about the dreaded rear separation. There was a slight separation of about 1/2 inch. I took it to Tom and he made the attachment. Did a great job. You can't tell by looking at it that it is now firmly attached. But if you run your fingers under the crossmember below the edge of the body there is a row of bolts. The price was reasonable, but not cheap. It only took a few days, but I had to wait about 4 months to get the trailer in. He is really busy.
