Here's an outside photo. The rest are in the photo section, you can search by user. Nice looking coach, BTW:

Here's a link. You can also acces photos by clicking on the "photos" tab in the blue forums tab at the top of your screen:

Hi Bertro,

That is really a nice looking rig. We purchased a 71 Safari about 3 years ago but it did not look as nice as yours. We had to replace all the appliances except the stove. We also had to get new curtains and get cushions recovered. After all the hard work we are enjoying our very much. Happy camping.

Larry

Have uncoverd some problems

Thanks for the feedback,
I thought I'd send a few lines while waiting on my wife in best buy,Could be a long update.So far all electrical works including jack,fridge,A/C,Water pump,fans,no tail or running lights yet.The stove works but I cant get furnace to light and the water closet dump plate is froze up.The axles are at zero degrees so they will get replaced from what I read here.I've yet to check the propane function of the fridge or check the h2o heater.Does there have to be water in the tank to test it.I did find that the rear crossmember in the utilitys well is bad on the right side,and the step hanger section of frame on the right as well could use some work although functional.I will peel back some belly skin to check the rest I hope everthing is good.Wish me luck I hope we dont have a wolf in sheeps clothing.

You should have water in the water heater tank when it is operating. I realize the rig is probably winterized so you don't want to add any water. It woould be OK to 'see' if it fires up just momentarily then immediately shut it down.
