Modifications SHOW & TELL

ITS NOT TO TO LATE TO SIGN UP TO SHOW YOUR MODIFICATIONS::::::::::
We will have a SHOW AND TELL again this year. For all those that would like to show off their improvements to their Montana or tow vehicle.
It will run all week during the rally.

If you want to participate, post a list of your modifications on this thread and also include your improvement list with the rally book survey sent to Carol. It would also help if you printed out the list of your modifications on a sheet of paper and displayed it on your rig during the rally.

People can get together individually to view the improvements during the rally - your unit will be identified by a ribbon tied to you hitch.

See me at the 'Meet and Greet Social". You will be given the ribbon to tie to your hitch, indicating that you are interested in showing off the modifications you have done to your rig.

Joe Huber
Coordinator.

Joe here is ours but I told Carol to just put numerous mods on Monte and TV in the Rally Book.

1. New entry steps replaced after last years Fall Rally.

2. Additional shelves put in all upper cabinets in main living area of Monte.

3. Lexan put in screen door to make it a storm door and removed the screening.

4. Put LED bulbs in most of the light fixtures. Have more to work on and may have them in by the Rally.

5. Added wall décor above slides, in hallway and in bedroom to make it more like home when away.

6. Added two more slide out drawers in the lower cabinets by the stove instead of the shelving in that space.

7. Added the Jack antenna to the rising mast for better teli reception.

8. Added a regular clothing bar to the existing bar in the closet instead of the slotted one which came with it.

9. Step ladder added to the TV tailgate for easier access to the truck bed.

10. Converted storage cabinet under refrig into liquor cabinet. :>)

11. Added shelves to entry storage/laundry closet on entry of unit and installed a shelving unit for storage in there also. Don't have a washer dryer so use it for storage and closet.

12. Ceramic, glass and metal tiles added to backsplashes in kitchen and bath room sinks.

If I think of what else we did I will add them to this list.

By the way Joe, thanks for taking on this Coordinator/Leader position!

Hi guys!

Heads up, the list from George Persons, and Zieglars and Walter Johnson were like 2 to 3 pages each, typed!

I had to pick a few to include in the book from each of these three marv couples.

I am very sorry, but, WHEWIE, I could not figure out a way to get all that in there.

Sooooo, please go see their rigs, you will NOT be sorry.

I still have the full lists, if someone wants me to post and I have blessings of the parties involved.
