Default EAA TV Series "From the Ground Up"

Another source of video material is the TV show produced by EAA, "From the Ground Up." Although it depicts the building of an RV-8, like the Orndorf videos, the basics of building an RV are presented.

There were 13 TV episodes, and they were initially available on VHS tapes (remember them?), but I notice the EAA has the series available on 3 DVD's for $59.99. I imagine there are some for sale out there somewhere in RV land.

Here's the EAA link.

Take the EAA Sheet metal course, it is offered all over the country.

You will be able to ask the instructors question during the class and after.

One of their good instructors is Ed McGowen and if you Private message me I will send you his phone number. He can let you know the dates of the classes also.

a big help is start with a large table 3 foot by at least 8 foot. Level and well constructed. Or go to Home depot and build their work bench. it will work also but you'll need a couple of them
