My new (not so new) home
Here she is. My brand new 1979 Chevy Coachman Class C. I will be using her to full time (thats if I can ever stop the leaks). I do love the camper, though theres alot to be desired. Its an original interior, wood paneling and it smells like old newspapers. I have some modifications that will make it a bit easier and more tailored to my living. I have already taken down the yucky flower print waterproof wall papering and put a lightweight fiberglass over it. (wish i took pictures of before and after, i guess i could always take pictures of the after)
Size wise its a perfect 19' class c which meets my needs exceptionally. The down side is definitely the leaks. The rear corner had some sort of accident, which I removed the duct tape and filled with caulk and will be re taping in a better more attractive tape. But the cabover bed is just a leak party. I think its the roof, which I will add some sealant to, and then I put caulk all around the front window of the cabover which was leaking (I know thats not a fix, but there was already so much caulk all over that part of the roof I chose to layer the caulk on and once I really settle in and have some money set aside, I will go through and talk all the layers of caulk off and apply some sort of sealer and recaulk. (not really sure what I will use) I bought it for $1,800 which was in my price range and it was the size I wanted so I wouldnt have gone anywhere else, even if I had to work less. So it will be a series of temporary re caulks and plugs until I have the time and money to take on the project full force and reseal everything. For what it is, it will work (if I can stop the leaks and put a bed in it!) and I only intend on keeping it out and about for a 2 years, then it will be living in a garage for a few years (leaving the country) then I will be overhauling it and restoring it back to its nifty 1979 appearance (original paint scheme but probably a more modern interior!) Thanks for reading, see you on the foruM!
