Adventures with my new to me Damon Daybreak

This past August, a man shows up at my door with cash in hand, says he wants to buy my 47 Ford street rod. Why yes, it could be for sale since you have cash and will meet my price.

Off to find a new project. Time passes and I find an 18k mile 2000 model year Class A. Money changes hands, and the Daybreak and I head home.
3 blocks and the brakes lock up, happens 2 more times before we get the nameless beast home. Rusty rotors from sitting for over a year.

It has been winterized so no need to do that again this late in the year so I am leaving that alone. Taking care of Safety issues first. Replaced burnt out lights and ordered new headlights. New fire extinguisher, smoke detector and CO detector. Tossed the mattress and the shattered shower door.

Tires are the originals, so before next year they will be replaced ($$$ wow). The blue carpet will be replaced with laminate, new corian countertops, blue furniture will be made current along with a reconfiguration of seating, dinette area. Dead TV will be upgraded to latest technology. LED's everywhere.

So far it is fun, already have highsided it with a pump island. no major damage. The HOA has visited to remind me of covenents. This will be fun next year. When the little enforcer asked if it was coming back, I told him next spring

I love a challenge.

Thank you for that!! You have made me laugh so hard about a situation that has become a pain for me! Trying to find the right one still! Saw a good looking daybreak near me but leary because in trying to stick with a diesel pusher.

We have made some progress, if you can call it that. Have a pile as tall as I am of parts and stuff that I think I will need to replace in order to address some deteriorated plastic stuff, repaired the windshield curtain, bought a new mattress and shower door.

Meantime we are waiting for crazy mid-west weather to decide if it is spring or winter. Depends on the day. Hope to get it out of storage and install new tires this week.

May find storage closer to home. I had to get it in storage in a hurry and was able to find inside storage but an hour away. The coach parked in front of me was supposed to be out in early March. Last time I checked he was still parked.
