Building a Motorhome - Days 12 through 16

The pace of changes has slowed way down this week, so I'm consolidating several days into this post.

Day 12 was spent in tile repair in Red Bay.  Since we could not access the interior and nothing was being done to the exterior, we spent our time wandering around the main factory floor.  I have no pictures to post of our rig for day 12.

Day 13 was final finish at the main plant.  The interior work is supposed to be done by this stage, but we had a couple of issues that had to be put off until a little later.

A few images from our almost finished coach, with the slides out.

We're not sure what we are going to do with all the decorative cushions...

It is tight, but we can get to the fridge, bedroom and bathroom!

Starting to look like it is getting closer

Day 14 was back to the paint facility in Belmont for some paint touch up.

Some pretty big snakes near the factory.  It looks this one got run over in the middle of shedding its skin.

Masking for some paint re-spraying

Day 15 was spent in the repair and detailing line at Belmont.

Caulking around the windshield

Applying product decals

Day 16 was some more final finish work, sealing, bubble check and rain test at Belmont.

Mud flap installed

Caulking potential water entry spots

Spraying soapy water on seams of pressurized coach looking for unwanted leaks

The last step for the day was a thorough drenching in the rain booth to again check for leaks.


This smaller Allegro Breeze reminded us of an immature animal surrounded by the full grown members of the group!
