Greetings!!

A newbie here and definite Riv enthusiast. Though I'd post some of the photos of the vehicle. Based in north Virginia, I traveled to California last year as a contractor.. 3,000 mile trip each way and 4,000 miles in Santa Clara county. Wow.. was so impressed with the Riv.. a feeling of safety at 7,500 ft above sea level in cold March weather, and cruising around the Bay area in 2011. Prior to the 97, I had an 86 T-Type.. two-tone charcoal underneath with white on top, red leather interior!!


Here's the 97 with 131,820 miles (starting with recent pics and working backwards in time)

Aug 2012 before reinstalling front wheelhouse panels and trim:
