Sue, looks like your AS is in good hands. Andy, that is some nice work. I have heard tell of a full side like you have done but have not seen it, very impressive to see. Hope Sue will not mind letting you post some shots of the finished product.

Hang in there Sue, looks like today will be the day. I had some punk kids shoot up the front end of my excella a few years back. Oasis here in Tucson replaced 4 or 5 panels and the front windows to get out all the dents from the BBs. Makes you mad, but then in the hands of skilled craftsman, it comes back good as new.

Hooray!

Well, I brought Mariposa home last night to the RV park. The traffic was really wild, everyone leaving with toy haulers, headed to the sand dunes I guess in Yuma.

Anyway, my spot in the park was rented out for two nights so I parked her right in front of the office with her good side out. This was a good way to show what Andy and Greg had done. The repair left all the naysayers with their mouths open. They said it could not be done but now they see what Inland RV can do. And it was all done within the time Andy said he would do it.

Andy had to go to bat again for me with the insurance company but I came out on the winning side. They wanted to total her but he managed to work it around so they repaired her.

The decal all along the side is beautiful, straight as an arrow.

Also he installed a patio light above my kitchen window that will give me light to party by. Whoopee!

I will be going back to have my brakes, wheels and axles checked. They have never been checked since I purchased her in 2004. Then I will be all set to travel this summer to cooler climes.

A happy ending to what was a rather sad time for me.

Glad to see that everything worked out for you Sue. Maybe in the future we'll meet up again and I'll get to see Inland's handywork in person.

Things are beginning to feel good again. I have pretty much unpacked all that I had carried to the park model. Sitting back in my recliner e-mailing this message, I feel that all is well with my world.

Someone left a beautiful boquet of flowers on my steps while I was gone the first day, with a note reading "Welcome back Mariposa". There are some very special people in this park, the kind you meet when you are fortunate enough to live the life I live.

People still are coming by and admiring Inland's work. I have given out a few cards for future reference.

I want to add another name to my thank yous that I missed previously. I found out Speedy, who has been doing work on AS for many years, was instrumental in getting her back to normal. Thank you Speedy, you did a marvelous job in making her whole again.

Now if I could just find someone to do the same thing to the other side........laughing, then she would match.

Yes Creg, I am hoping to visit TN this summer and am planning to stay in the AS park in Crossville. Perhaps we can meet one day.

This will probably be my last post on this adventure but I appreciate all the messages and good vibes I received from all of you.

Well, Craig, I spelled your name incorrectly.

I thought I checked all my typing but I see I missed a very important word.

Yep, you will see my new shiny side. at least it is the street side...so more people will see it when I am parked.

That's right Kathy. It's been awhile since we have seen Sue. Maybe we can have a little rally of our own while visiting her.
