    Hey it looks a lot like mine, a Prowler?
    What someone said about the heat/cold is absolutely right. Even with a/c I'd keep it in the shade if I were you, like under trees if possible because even with the AC you can feel like you're in an oven. As for the cold, same thing. I had a gas furnace & electric heaters where I needed them. Even then, I would find frozen cans of food & bottles of shampoo, cracked glasses, and I even had a sewing machine that got ruined stored in it. I had mine for 3 years and gave it up for a pop-up - I like the conveniences & mobility.

    That was a great snag! Put it on a block foundationwith tie downs. I think it would be a great BOL.

    That pic brought back a bunch of childhood memories for me. My family had a 31' HR almost exactly like that one.
    Please keep us posted on your progress. I'm very interested in how this project turns out!
    Hope to start doing something with it late summer. Just not sure what I want to use it as.

    If you need any help or have any questions about it just let me know.
    That is good to know. Now that you offered you assistance , I will definitely send you a message when I get stumped.

    I'm kicking around the idea of installing wiring for 12v DC lights and fans, I also have one of them big 12 v coolers I may install and get rid of the fridge that's there.

    Can't count on those, though, may have no electric. Unless you intend to install solar and batteries?

    When we had our 5th wheel parked where it got cold, our little solar panels kept the 4 batteries charged well enough to run the heater until about 0500 at which time I'd poke SkyOwl and he and the dog would go out and start the generator.

    Of course, in a SHTF situation, we'd run out of propane rapidly, so are counting on other warming methods.
    I'm not doing propane at all I'm going to do solar power, and a generator.
