i did this all my life in tell my wife became ell  and as we all do  we try to find a new way to go in life   for us RVing was it 

i fond this RV in a junk yard  and the guy  feel on hard times that owned it ...GUESSING...  and set it on fire at the gen  to stop making payments on it  and could tell it was a fake
so i fond it with a good title  but every that could make money was gone

all i had was a floor walls 2 slides   and thats about it   what you see in the pics     is what i got all most free        i made a trade for some parts lift over from my company   so no cash moved hands

this was a 2006 cross country sportscoach on a  freightliner XC chassis

i am a tall guy i am 6.2 high and inside this thing the roof was only 6.3 some thing like that so it had to goo

so i added 16inc to it    i all  most have now 8 feet inside   truth 7.10  some thing like that     and the out side roof high is 2inc higher then the top of where the AC units would have been         

and well get to where thee ac moved too

i was working as fast as i could to get the RV out of the shop  so i could start installing more of the RVs systems  and i was all so on a time line as i only payed my rent for the place i was staying to only so long

the shop was some thing left over from the company

the time line jumps around some here  but  you can see the roof over the back room  ...bed..   and the fiberglass part i had to make to feel in where the front cap did not make it all the way up

i was going to make my own cap but as the time line got low  i just fond 1 off a 07 RV   most can tell off the bat what it came off of    so i pulled it and it did fit really good 
price was good  1500$  for every thing  and same yard i got the rv from  so the guys was good to me there 

the side wall  was made in one hole part      all so was the slide wall i had to remake

so now at 5 months   i had 2 more months to get this thing on the road and can live in it 
at this time i was going to install a              GM 8.1/allison 2100 
but i got stuck with a what i had on hand   GM 350/TH400   so i hand made the parts fast and drop it in

so i told my self  get the parts and do the right install when i can down the road             ??????????? 2 years latter  and i just now have a 8.1 and allison but working on the wiring to install   

good thing about the older 350s  you can drop  it in any thing and in 2 days  have it moving down the road   .. my time line was more a week as i had to send off for the drive shaft

drives like a loaded 1 ton   but i am stuck to only moving arond FL   no hills for me lol

making the plug for the mold  was very hard as  in coming up with the right shape i wanted  some thing cool but not to over do it 

the plug was made of wood and was to just get me a rufe shape   
so from there i pulled the - shape from it    then pop  a so so part from that

now for the AC

i am running all solar  so 75% of the roof is used  soon it well be more   
all so thats why the core of the roof is still  for the wight  that i put up there

the gen bay is now only a battery bay  so there is no gen on this system   every thing runs off the SW invert

the inter well be moved   from where it is to down in a bay

my home was all solar here in FL so i just pulled that system and moved it over to my RV

it is not sold in the USA but there is a 24vDC ac units out there    that i can have shipped over   the cost is high   so when the time comes i well look in to the in a 24v setup or find a really really good low amp setup  here

there is a lot of work still inside and out


soo  is there any thing any one would like to know or ask

I'm a bit confused - you started with a Coachman Sportscoach diesel pusher and ended up with a rear gas-powered Fleetwood Excursion?  Or did you use an Excursion front cap to replace the Sportscoach front end?   I must have missed something...

Anyway, that is one heck of a makeover!

some one talked about cost    tires is where all my cost is 250$ each with rims X 6  all so came off the excursion...
in all i have around 9.000 to 11.000 in the rv  thats with the new allson trans i just for and 8.1   not installed 

and freightliner  well lates say the tampa dealer  sucks   i can get in and out of a doc office faster    gerrrrr  i am not going to get started on them

O and i know some one well ask  i can do 75mpr down the road if i want  but to get good MPG i need to stay 55 to 60MPR to get 7 mpg

the 350 stays arond 2200 rpms at 55mpr     the RV can move around just fine with this setup

but my Gear Ratios for Reverse is way off so i have to get down on it harder then i want to back up  :-[ aaaa i think it can i think it can  :-[

the allison has first at    3.10          this is what i wanted to install and well  when i get the wiring made
the TH400        first at   2.48           this is what i had on hand and just drop in to get it to move around
Gear Ratios for the at is 4.8? .11 have to look again
so if i get stop at a red light at the start of a hill  i am suck in first going all the way up

This has to be one of the most gifted man that I've seen in a loooooong time.
I admire his talent and capability to address all of the issues in this rebuild.
I thought that I was a pretty good 'hands-on' guy, but not so much now.

Keep on with the restore and continue to let us know how you are doing.

Terry,

I drove by this morning and WOW. I wish I hd half of yourskill. That will be one fine coach when you are done. I am amazed at the way you rasied the roof and fitted the front cap.

My hat is off to you my friend.

you can see how much i still have to do on the paint and more       wish i was there when you stop by would have showed you the GM350 down in it  a lot of ppl don't believe  that its really in there and the RV can move

thanks for being the first to say its real   

there are some ppl to say its not or Photoshop the pics 

and the part for the bumper was just made  .. have a lot of sanding to do on it but what did you think of the shape
as there is no part to fill the hole i had to hand make some thing   and i am not sure if it looks cool

and the funny looking wing on the back gets more parts      /// small window under the wing in the back//  and more    when  every thing is added  you cant tell its a wing tell you look at it from the back

I think that when you are done the front peice will look like it belongs there. I does look pretty cool. I really like the way that you fitted the small windows in the side of the roof extension. I would think that if they can be opened it will allow for some nice ventilation and allow heat to escape from a normally dead air space.

Let me know if you you will be there at anytime over the weekend and I will try to swing by.

Terry-
What you lack in spelling, you certainly make up for with your incredible RV resurrection.


It was a pleasure scrolling through your post and seeing your progress.


I just wish I could help with the 8.1 information.




Brett Michaels of "Rock My RV" (the TV show) would do very well offering you a job. Your abilities amaze me.

Hey Terry, I made it over here.  I'll see what I an do about the TCM/ECM TAC stuff.
Are you sure its a 2004 Allison?  What is the trans out of?  What engine was in front of it stock? 

I ask because there was a few years where there wasn't a 6 speed Allison available in the GM trucks, only a 5 speed Allison.  We have to set this beast up using the parts from where the trans came from, not what you want it to be like.  If the trans is from a 1 ton Suburban, you dont want to set it up like a gas pusher. 


I realize that you have a 2006 wiring diagram , Workhorse R26 UFO Chassis 81L 2006, but we need to know exactly what Allison transmission you have sitting there.  What vehicle did it come out of? You said the VIN was 1F6NF53Y560) the "0" signifies a 2006 vehicle, but then you said you were lied to and it might be might be from a 2004 1/2?

Are your 8.1 engine and Allison trans from different vehicles?  We can control the 8.1 easy enough, it will run using any 1999-2007 PCM/ECM so long as we use the 24 x crank signal and 1x camshaft signal from the 8.1 and send it to the ECM?PCM.
The tricky part is sending the correct info from the ECM to the TCM, that's why we need to know exactly whaty the trans is.

OK I gotta take a break, supper time for me up here.  Been at this for 5 hours now.

I'll check in later.

peace
Hog

well  hog was a very very good guy that know his stuff   got me all the info on the TCM/ECM 


so over the last 2 months  i have not got as fare as i would like too  as i am saving cash up for the motor parts i need  so its been small things here and there as i can

the P side windshield was pulled out and reinstalled  so its not falling out any more     now just need a new drive side windshield

got a lot more of the roof in  and started to play with some cabinet work

it is hard to tell but the center of the roof is head liner and you can see wight paint on the side it all looks the same
but now its starting to look like some thing inside

had to move the lights around to get some good pics

installed more head liner  drive side   more work in the cabinets on the top there  and started on the pass side  over door   as you can see the blue block is where the solar charge controller is going    right next to where most of the info centers go   

the bigger box in the roof is where the roof fan is going      .....    giving how high my roof is  i am looking at just one type of fan to install   its around 380$ or some thing 
sorry for get the name of it   but it has the panel that you can install on the wall to make it open  and has the top on it that can be open in the rain  and fold down out of the way

all so with the big box you see a smaller box next to it    thats to suck air from the fan out  of that hole to out side or push air in

i have to make a big center pice  that is going to run along way up and down the rv   to pull that hot air out of the roof        fan well have a door on it  with a flap so i can take air and make it move any way i want     for them nights with out  AC  in no where land

sorry guys know i have been postting smaller news  some where else  on here so i well add  what some may have not seen 

its been a few months   working  on and off  over the bad weather we have had

pulled the older GM 350 / TH 400 out  sold it for 300$  nice guy came  out and help me pull it   .. so its not going in his hot rod car

started to drop the 8.1l in there and found  it did need some work 
so that put me back a few months

its now in there with the allison 1000 MH

started on wiring and fuel system  motor mounts  and more

i was all so pushed back on the exhaust system and the flags  where hard to find  was 3 months of looking to find the right parts

but the exhaust is now in and ready to go   but i again i wanted to go with the truck exhaust so the tran mounting had to be made in a way to stay out of the way   

power steering pump was all so a fun one   again wanted to stay with the truck setup as i all ready had a high flow unit
i had to edit the pulley to make it work  flip it around  and install it back word
doing this would give me room for the air pump for the brakes  i well install latter a tu-flo 550  that was used on the 8.1l

Did the smoke smell from the fire clear up? 

Talked to some repair people that fix houses after a fire and they said it is pretty tough to get all the burn smell out.

yes after pulling the roof off and pulling all wallpaper off the walls  you can not smell  it 

and i still have alot of parts that still need to come out  like carpet  but every thing that had a real smell to it was pulled  and with new roof liner  some new paint  thats all i can smell 

when i can i am going to take it to a RV show where every one can walk in to it

No need to resize the photos; Just post the photobucket links that you used on the other forum.

so friday michelle was feeling good .. one of them not so many good days ... ;)

but any way i pulled every thing i could out of the RV to take it down to get the total weight of the RV to see how bad over i was

mic all so worked right on the Gopro this time
this is real sound and not been played with in any way
i left it that way as some asked about my cooling fan and the sound it puts off as its fixed drive

so i got some good video from under the RV why moving down the road to see how every thing was or was not staying in place

so there is some good video
numbers in the video on weight ...so do i have a fat RV  :-\  ::)


this is the last time i am going to take it out on the road in tell i get more work done on it and do a tune up

i would really like to know what every one thinks
i know alot where holding off in tell they seen it run and drive

this is the 3ed test drive of the unit
