My 29hfs is 34'11" tip to tip. Its said to be 96" wide, but actually about 102" with the things on the sides... closed slide. The slide extends 36" so... figure its 138" wide with slide extended.

I pulled mine out of it's winter sleeping spot. Didn't get a picture though.

Needs a good wash and wax.

Tims29, can you help hype explaining how you went about adding the utensil drawer and getting a close color match? I think I have the skills to do this.

I took one of the pieces I removed from over the door (post #544) and cut it to fit under the drawer opening. I used a drawer kit from Home Depot and narrowed it to fit the opening. Most of the work was installing the framing for the drawer glides, there's not much to attach things to, you'll have to be creative. I took one of our existing drawers to my local kitchen guy and ordered a drawer face to fit the new drawer size. The drawer pull came from Home Depot as well, it's a really good match. The panel under the drawer now has a magnet catch on top and bottom for easy removal for accessing the water heater (not pictured). Well worth all the effort, it fits an average size utensil organizer.

Im thinking seriously if selling my toyhauler or buying a lot and keeping it in north Georgia. Wonder if $6K to $7K in extras would make it more sellable? $32K... $30K... $27K what do you guys think?

don't think you want to hear what i think but here goes.

for every dollar you put in i think you will get most none of it back if any .
considering the purchase price maybe top dollar would be 23K. IMO
i hope to heck you get 30K but seeing as how you can get brand new with warranty for just a bit over 25k . one reason i have not done a lot of stuff to my unit . just keep it in great shape and do what needs to be done to keep it that way and a few small things to make it tow better and a bit more functional on the inside .
i don't plan on keeping mine forever i see in a few years tops of selling it . settling back down in one spot in Co and back to a truck mounted pop-up which suited me well for 25 yrs .
the only reason i got this TH is the traveling i'm doing now
