Hunter I almost finished!! pixs

Hello to everyone,have been busy working on Hunter and havent been back on site lately.Will try to post some pics.Just got new tires and wheels on today and did a test drive,seem to be ok.Since last post I have added new cushions that I made,installed new curtains my wife sewed,Installed new canvas for poptop that Amish guy made for me ( he didn't want to try windows so that is ok for now).Ran new gas line underneath(black pipe) and installed new regulator and hose.Made new tabletop and installed towards front of camper.new bushings in springs,moved springs on top of axel instead of underneath and installed new hanger bolts for springs.installed new jack back to original location,and other things I can't remember right now.Still have to make a splashguard behind stove.
Getting ready for big trip 2 weeks from sat. to WY and CO. for 2 weeks.Will find where any problems are then, Right
Thanks to everyone on this site for their help.

Harold Great looking job !! My wife and I had a Hunter about twenty years ago but got two foot itis and moved up larger and larger. Recently we have come to our senses and now have a 13 foot Uhaul and a 5500 Trillium. The thing I really loved about the Hunter was the light weight and ease of towing. Lee and Norma

Great job! Did you add the "End of the Trail" figure or was it original?
