I'm totally speechless, Marius, that is one BEAUTIFUL job. My hat is off to you. You certainly have more patience than I do and many others I am sure.

" My God Marius " What a fantastic job! I'm a kind of do it yourselfer type of guy, but you win the prize. How long did it take you to complete the job? Also it appears you made some modifications to your dash. Can you explain those mods?

Thanks, Sammie

Hello Sammie,

Thank you, appreciate the kind words!
Worked on it over the winter so it took 6 months....could have been done in 3 if I had a heated building.....

As to the dash, I added the touch screen Fujitsu Windows Tablet that runs the Silverleaf VMSPC Engine communication program, replaced the radio/CD with a Nesa 6.5" touch screen DVD/Radio/iPod /Navigation unit, added the CB and the Doran TPMS - the rest is pretty much stock...

Marius

magav,
Without a doubt, the nicest renovation/conversion/alteration that I've seen and yet, still a "Down to earth" machine, not some ultra high dollar celebrity thing that's too gaudy.

I have always had a kind of obsession with LED lights and, have changed almost all of the interior and, all the compartment lights to them. I am truly fascinated with the ceiling lights you've installed. Could you elaborate on the procurement, building and installation of those "Star Trek" type lighting systems in both the living and bedroom quarters? I'd surely appreciate it. Outstanding job.
Scott

ON EDIT: I just saw your post above mine about the infinity lights. I'll check those out.
Scott

RVT.comŽ - RV For Sale, Used RV, Travel Trailer, Motorhome, Camper Trader - Buy or Sell RVs Online
or
my favorite. Where I found ours
Sell Your RV, Motorhome Trade In, Recreational Vehicle (Sell Your RV) - RVs.com

Good luck. I just heard on the news the other day that RV sales have gone up this year a lot so it should sell. Just on Ebay may not work because a lot of people never use ebay. spread it around.

I agree with LaJuene...many people won't use eBay, myself included, so posting it in other venues would be recommended.

A good used Vectra is selling for $85/95K with 50K miles. It's going to take someone very special to cough up the additional $25/30K you are asking. I agree, its a fantastic looking upgrade, but that's a whole lot extra. With so many RV's for sale today; new and used; those that are going to spend money on RV's in todays economy have lots of choices.
