After much research and looking on every rv website imaginable, I have decided to go with a FWC raven shell.  It seems that FWC has the perfect camper for my needs. The information that I have gleaned from this website has been invaluable and I have been inspired by the shell owners who have done their own builds (especially Bill Harr).  Yesterday I met Chris Janeway from Rocky Mountain FWC at the international sportsmen expo in Denver and that is when I placed my order.  Anyway in 12 weeks I should have a new Raven shell to play with.

Congrats on your order. What type of build are you planning? Full, minimal or in between?  Looking forward to your build.

That's great!  We were headed to the show but the warm weather called us down to Lake Pueblo for some rare winter riding on dry trails.  It sounds like you had a worthwhile trip to the ISE.

Congrats Yetirider on your new Raven.  I think you'll find building out your own shell is almost as fun a camping in it.  I look forward to you pics.  Now the anxious wait begins...

Yetrider. 

Welcome to the group.  Can't wait to see the pictures of your build.  Everyone does it differently and there are so many great ides.  We all like to be along for the ride and the pictures are a way for us to have almost as much excitement as you have doing all of the work.  We can sit at the computer with a beer and enjoy.
