John that's why they pay you the big bucks. LOL

I will have to say guys, the big sleeper is nice to have. I've had big sleepers in the past but its been a while. I made do with the 36" for 4 years  but its great to make your own coffee or cook your own meal.

Ok, back to the top vent thing... After painting the trim and then testing mine(yes, the wrong order), I found the fan motor was dead. I went to ebay, and sure enough, there was a replacement there. The replacement is a Ventline Van vent, just like the pics the guys posted way back. It has a smoked lid instead of the solid white, but the lid, screen, and handle are exactly the same as the original Hammond model. The 'frame' is a pressed metal instead of the cast pot metal, but exactly the same size,, although 2 more mounting screws. The fan motor is the newer 2amp version amd smaller diameter,, the squirrel cage while the same diameter, has larger fins, moving more air. It was like $56 plus shipping from the place in CA and shipped direct from the manufacturer in Utah,, the other guy wanted more and was from MI (?).  He DOES have more if you guys are still lookin for one. I would have takin pics, but it's so tight between the bunk and tabke, you couldnt see much. I think it will be fine, as they make most of the RV vents out there.  Search for Ventline VP-543 in ebay , seller should be americanrvcompany. Ordered it Sunday, got it today...

It looks great on the truck. What year is the truck? All it needs is a fancy or funny slogan or song title on the back of the sleeper.

I like the big bunk better, turns it into a luxury truck, not just a hot rod.

Thanks guys. I think it looked better with the small bunk too but its going to be a lot more comfortable.

David, I will call if I get that way.

Wayne, I started doing body work in high school. I'm glad I know how but it gets old in a hurry when you do it everyday for a living.

Looks great.  I never would have got the stripes to match. With that big bedroom on there now you may have to change the name of your home 20 from Roaring Gap, N.C. to Snoring Gap, N.C.:P

All I need is one more good deal and I'll be out of business.:unsure:

I'll stick with the old and they can stick the new.:blink:
