12/1/2021: OK folks, the new forum software is up and running

As has been mentioned, the look of the forum is different. As time permits, we may customize the look a bit.

I have created a new thread to discuss the new platform: viewtopic.php?t=4960

The new platform should be stable and fully functional. Please report any issues in the new thread.

Thank you all for hanging in there with me as we made the rather bumpy trip over to the new platform.

Jim

This is a public forum. This forum will be a place to show your Project Eagle and updates on progress you have made. Please make one thread with your project and put all updates in the same thread. Sorry... Eagles only.

Van, Here is a rear view of the back of the coach showing the mural. I had a local airbrush artist do it.

That is drop dead gorgeous, I had one done and a guy in St. Louis in heavy traffic says "I like your DECAL on the back of your trailer." I pay a guy $1100 to do a great mural and everyone thinks it is a decal?

Man-man. Yours looks super.

No I didn't say that ... Must have been some other guy.

Installed a Zip Dee awning last week and we are enjoying it over in the Smokey Mountains this week!

Thank you Clifford and Sonnie for making this possible.

I really like the awning color against the white and aluminum. (tongue in cheek. It is the same as ours.) Nice that you and Denise validate our choice by your good taste.

Nice Eagle. Question on Eagles in general. I noticed that your '67 has the tag behind the drive. My '70 has the tag in front of the drive. I see mine as less desirable because of the increased turning radius.

Any ideas why they switched to the drive in the rear in '70 when it seems like they had it correct in '67?
