sorry for late response mine isn't as fancy no auto levelling. I think the local shop tweaked my bay doors by having sliders out and not having it up on the jacks first. 2004 Diplomat.

Just attempted a quick edit of video #2 on my phone.... This one is not so good but at least there is an easy to see frame pull at the end... I will try and do better.

Be sure to like and subscribe... even if you hated it..

tim..you have the MOST amazing wife!

my youtube video would be me rolling around on the floor clutching my kicked nuts, if a tow truck rolled up to my house, "look honey, i'm gonna fix this!"

she is an angel.

come to think of it..you need your own tow truck. you cant drive the submarine to your place.

Tim, check out the Project Binky videos. Those are guys that took videoing their project and have really capitalized on it.

Wow. You remind me of one of my best friends, a dude who could pretty much fix anything he put his mind to, from a mechanical bull in his shop to a 45 ft offshore powerboat with trip supercharged bigblocks. Its amazing the deals that can be found if you're willing to apply sweat equity.
If you don't mind the question, how much are you into the coach for in purchase and towing?

If you want to generate some YouTube traffic, post on the iRV2 forum. They have an active Monaco sub-forum and most would be very interested to see this unfold.

Great minds think alike lol. Just purchased wrecked 2004 Camelot PDQ... big project - iRV2 Forums

Great guys over there... they have been a big help already (14k views in just a couple weeks!). Several have reached via pm with very generous help. Many of them know everything I don't about motorcoach systems.... I know how to fix broken stuff which many of them would write off.

Won the auction for 12.6k.... with auction fees and towing, it was about 16k when it pulled into my shop. Hope to stay just under 30k when I am finished (including all new tires and house batteries). Similar units in decent condition can range from 60- 100k from what I seen thus far when looking at them on rv trader type sites.

Tim, thanks for sharing this with me on FB... loved the video and like the others am now subscribed.

I did about the same thing that Tim is doing with a brand new Airstream trailer back in the 1980 time frame... great way to end up with a nice RV for a low price!!

We used to rent a 34, then 36 and finally a 40 foot RV to take to fly-in's and fell in love with the things...

Wish I was closer, would love to come help!!

Joe, there is an older Airstream on the Facebook marketplace for like $3,000.

Wow!..... What a busy couple days. Barely got to touch the Beast. I did however get a couple small pulls done last night and experimented with welding 1/2 links of chain to the part then using it to pull on... works pretty good. Got the master cylinder replaced in the Chevelle but did not have time to bleed the system because.... Kid's "new" boat ended up in my shop all weekend. Spent Friday evening through Sunday at 9:00 pm cleaning up and working on the boat with the kids for the most part. (I can't for the life of me figure why my daughter "just had to have" a boat...

Got a second air/oil hydraulic pump coming UPS today so I should be able to get back to pulling bent metal soon.
