We bought Sherman in September 2007, and he only had 25,000 miles (40,000 kms) on him. Now, he has 89,000 miles (142,000 kms) on the clock! But it's almost all highway driving, and that's pretty easy on the engine. Plus, I change his oil regularly!
Took this photo the first day we were introduced!
Sherman has a Chevrolet 454 cu in (7.2 litre) 8 cylinder gasoline engine. And he has a 60 gallon (228 litre) fuel tank. It's a good thing for the big fuel tank because Sherman only gets 10 miles to the gallon!
We have done a lot of modifications to Sherman. We installed three 80w solar panels, four 6v deep cycle batteries, and a power inverter. This is our supply of electricity because we like to be self sufficient and it enables us to park overnight for free when we can.
We also removed the television and the microwave. We didn't use either one of them very often, so we got rid of them. Now we have more cupboard space!
And we replaced the carpet and flooring in the living area.
The two front seats swivel around to provide extra seating if necessary.
We put the laptop on the table opposite the couch and it's a great setup for watching movies on the laptop.
The grand entranceway!
Walkaround double bed is so comfy with a memory foam topper mattress.
Speaking of the facilities, Sherman has a 38 gallon (144 litre) fresh water tank, a 42 gallon (160 litre) black water holding tank, and a 42 gallon (160 litre) grey water holding tank. With careful use of water, we can go almost two weeks without refilling or emptying tanks.
The kitchen has a nice double sink, but a typical lack of countertop space. Fortunately, the stove cover folds down, and you can see the sink cover leaning against the wall beside the big pot. Using these two items makes the lack of countertop space bearable.
New floor in the entrance way, kitchen, and bathroom.
