Default Tip: Plans section 5

Lots of posts over the years have been about things that are already explained in section 5 of the plans---and all models have the same section 5.

Many folks have bought instead of building their RV, so that basic information may not be available to them.

So, to make this easier to find in the future, I present to you--------

Everything that comes with the preview plans including section 5 is on the CD available from Van's. What, $10? Even if you have all the paperwork, you should have this CD.

Default $10 plus...

the cost of a PC or Mac with an optical drive. There's not a machine in my household that still has one anymore. Nor at work.

A thumb drive or downloadable PDF might be more with the times.

I bet the Vans guys would gladly transfer that for you if you send them $10 and a thumb drive. That way you get all the details that go with it. There are several files on the disc.

I maintain a custom i7 quad for just this purpose, but even one machine with windows is too much to maintain. How can MS stay in business?

I still think they should just make it available as a download. Pay the $10, get the link to download it (the chance of people making illegal copies is actually smaller since it's easy for anyone to pay and get).

I personally just put all the files from mine on my Google Drive, can open it anywhere including my cell phone (useful for instance in those garage moments when I'm building a part that's only used in a later kit I don't have yet and I'm wondering how it fits)

Default Wow look at those revisions!

Thanks Mike:

I looked over the Section 5 and found many items had been revised since my copy of 2009.

Thanks

FYI: the plans set does come on a thumb/flash drive now. Bought one a few weeks ago.
