Originally there was a couch where the computer table and recliner on the left side of the picture (driver's side)....we removed it in November of 2013.


After---The stairs used to be carpeted, but I had my brother redo them in wood.


  1. Hi Clarke,

    I'm looking at an older RV (1994) that is also powered with the DD 6V92-TA engine. Can you tell me what it's like to drive? Is there anything about owning/operating that engine that you can share with a prospective buyer?

    1. Easy to drive......350 HSPR. Red line outs 2100 RPMs. Have to always be watching engine temp, especially when climbing. Contact me at chockwald@gmail.com
