Nice, I would suggest to check the body to frame mounting and floor joists well. Found a few vintage braves and chiefs with gaps!

Old no, experienced yes. That's the type of rig I wish my parents had when I was a young lad. Well OK I dreamed of a brave like that in shazam but this ones even better. Glad some people put forward the time to keep these alive and not a memory. Even if I can,t remember the 70s for obvious diaper related reasons.

The joy in owning an older RV is making it your home. The remodel will give you many memories as well as the use you give it when finished. Enjoy your new home and post some pictures as you move forward. Enjoy the ride.
