Well I hope this works.
We are new to this forum and pretty excited about it. We bought our 88 Silver eagle last march. We took the kids on a train down to Ohio for spring break and suprised them when we picked up the bus and drove it home. We had a blast. The first 3 months we had it we worked night and day gutting the inside and starting to rebuild. Turns out it is alot more work than one might think to remove all of the old interior. Especially those darn rails that hold up the seats. :shock: But by May we had enough done to this to take it on a few trips over the summer so the kids could start to see what it was like. We have not done much since then but now that the snow has melted here in Wisconsin I have spring fever and have started to work on it again. I am going to try to put a few pictures on and see if it works. Thank again for starting this forum. It has helped me convince my wife that I am not the only one out there that loves these bus.

On the picture you want to post, scroll over it and copy and paste the bottom code anywhere on a post you like. I hope this is the one you wanted.

Well it has been a while and I figure I should get some new pictures on the site. This spring we added some new paint to our coach. We did it our selves and this will have to do until we can afford a new shiney one. Image

Lookin' good! I know it's a lot of hard work, been there, done that! I'm sure it will last quite a while. I knew that when I did ours I would get the opportunity to do it again, I was right. Yours looks much better than ours for sure.
