Our "new" '78 Tioga



We finally have the title in hand, and got it home today! Now to get to work on it.

It is a 1978 Tioga on a Dodge chassis with a 440 under the hood.

Silver and Sky's Motorhome Project A very simple page I knocked out showing the motorhome, what we did to get it, and the remodel of it. Feel free to keep tabs on it as it progresses :] WARNING: Image heavy

I didn't see a dedicated remodeling section on here, so if I am missing it, or there is a place to post this and update it when I update the site, please feel free to point me in the right direction.

Is there a better section to be posting updates on this in, instead of bumping this thread? In Vintage maybe?

I think the initial posts were appropriate here, it is a 'new' rig, afterall, but SyrenSkywolf is probably right as concerns continuing posts IE: the restoration process. Vintage is probably a good place for those, and is likely to get you a better response from those that have already traveled the road before you.

Thumbs up

I have a lot of respect for someone who works on these older units. So much work involved. Best wishes as I am sure you will do fine. I like the layout.

I love reading about rigs being fixed up and used, I see so many sitting behind houses or at Farms neglected and eventually dragged to the junk yard.

Congrats and good luck on the repairs!
