"new" TV

What do you think of our "new" TV?
Not hooked up, of course. Pics are just for effect.
Plans are to put it on a duramax/allision chassis.

Yes, it's a 1955 on a Chevy 3/4 frame. It's in good original condition. Almost hate to pull it off the frame.

Man, that will be one really aerodynamic rig. I can only dream of all the storage you can design into the rear of the 'bread truck'. I am totally envious of the space!!!

You're right Scott. We have a '99 Burb we were using to pull the 76 Overlander; and it was just fine. Then we got the 06 SO, and it's a bit much for the Burb. We really didn't want to go with a Silverado with the 2 dogs, etc.
So, I came up with this idea. I know, I'm crazy! Good thing my wife loves me!

Oh well............what else do I have to do besides swap out the chassis and make everything work!
The fun is in the journey, right?!

Was looking at KNOEDLER Power Chief seats the other day. Can be fitted with their own compressor.

Those seats look mighty comfortable! I now have that on my "list" so will check into them at the appropriate time. Will definately need to do some interior mods and need to do it right the first time so we have what we want when its done.

I should probably keep that in mind...for the nights I may not be "allowed" in the AS.

Those are the drivers seats used on our transit buses. Very comfy looking.
