Tim,
Actually the Stripes paint job was what we were originally going to do, but after playing with it in photoshop a bit we decided on the inversion of the stripes job. Green on top white on bottom. For some reason we just liked the look.

Here's the side by side of the basic layout without the upper stripes

I didn't realise just how big that thing is. Did the original models really have bath rubs in them?! Amazing.

Barto,
Yep some of them had rear baths with a sitting tub like that in there. It's a tiny tub but it's there haha (the one irk posted I don't think is a GMC I haven't seen one with a full size tub before). Those models sacrifice a lot of more usable space in favor of the big bathroom. At 26' long it's really pretty small but done correctly you can make it feel big. Everyone that walks in mine goes "whoa it doesn't look this big from the outside".

Should paint it like a phone booth and call it the TARDIS hahah

Made it!
Had one little vapor lock episode but hit the switch for the external fuel pump and that cleared right up.

I think it was the windiest day in history. The thing drives great at 70 when its calm, but throw in an intermittent 30mph crosswind and it gets "entertaining" to say the least. Every bridge crossing tried to kill me, as did every break in the trees.the semis were all over the road too but it still was  not fun. Next time I have to drive in those kind of winds I'll be driving to the nearest gas station, buying a 12 pack and proceeding directly to the nearest state park for the remainder of the wind hahah.
