Nice work. You're right. Saved yourself a ton of money and learned all about it so future repairs are easier.

Shake down trips in the books. Worked great and small list of things to fix.

About the only parts we had trouble with, were the nylon slides. Had them machined from my brothers brother inlaw. Everything else was pretty simple to find at Home Depot or amazon for standard RV parts. I know they made 10' Siestas but have never seen another one besides mine and my brothers. Well, not counting the internet anyway. Glad to see you have yours and keeping it out and using them. Do you have any more pictures of your set up/ floor plan?

Wow, looks like you are changing almost everything around. Are you changing the lift system as well? Can't wait to see more pictures
Yep, the wood is pretty rotten where the mounts were so I figured it was only a matter of time till they ripped out. I got linear actuators and they work pretty good, but I haven’t gone off roading with it yet so we’ll see once stuff gets moved around a bit. It lifts from the roof now, similar to an Alaskan but with electric motors not hydraulics.
