I have had my Westy for just over three years and now have about 70,000 miles. Love it.

I just noticed that this post is now WAY out of date!

We've now had our Westy for about 4 years and we still love it!

It's now been as far north as Newfoundland (on a trip we took nearly 2 years ago) and our toddler son thinks its' his own personal play house.

So far we haven't made it any further west than Jackson Center, OH, though . . .

Hello Westy2005 -

Hopefully your James Cook won't be mistakenly confused with Lono . . .

May be a shameless plug for my blog . If you search on "tatyana" you would find my picture-fill post of my Westy.

Just got done putting #77 back together. This is a book of what we went through. There's 20 pages of pictures( use the arrows at the top of page ) and make sure you click on full screen. We love our Westy only wish we had gotten one sooner.

Wow, great job restoring the roof. Did you replace both the skylight and the corner windows? Where did you get them?

We just fixed the skylight cause we weren't able to find a replacement. We ended up taking the whole thing out to work on. My husband was able to hook up switches for the light and another one to open it cause the remote was giving us a hard time. As for the upper side window, we found a guy that could make us one, but wanted $1,200.00. We decided to get some Plexiglas to seal the window and have the guy make us a matching outside curved window to match the other side for $400.00. We cut the Plexiglas to fit in the window and place the new curved piece on top. Although we can't open that side we still have the skylight and other side for ventilation. It looks good and doesn't leak.
