First Look
Water Systems


Construction started with a mock up of the grooming and equipment spaces in the basement, allowing visualization of the space and its components.  This was done prior to ordering the vehicle.  The vehicle was ordered July 17, 2004.    After a fairly painful process, the new chassis/body hit our driveway March 1, 2005, a mere seven and one half months later.

Starting Point

To start with, the body was a complete shell with generator.  The local Supreme Industries facility did a nice job of remounting the factory-supplied generator, adding underbody toolboxes, skirting and fabricating a custom rear bumper with covering.  These tasks were apparently beyond the capabilities of the central factory.

Here are a few pictures of the starting point...
