Just bought my first SMB and wanted to say "Hi"!

I'm the proud new owner of a '99 Chevy Express Sportsmobile and could not be happier.
A bit about myself: I am a recent transplant to Florida from Indiana and made the move in a classic GMC motor home 5 years ago. I lived in that beast for 8 months and had a blast but it was just too big to enjoy driving around town. After deciding to buy a house, I sold the GMC and started restoring "canned hams". This past year I decided to do some more full timing and seeing the rest of the country. After discovering Sportsmobiles, I immediately knew this was exactly what I needed and began a quest to find one of my own. And this is the result:

I plan on relaminating the cabinets in teak formica, removing the 5' sofa and installing a stove as well as installing corian counter tops.

Clean looking van! How about some pics of the restored canned hams that you've done?
