95 Chinook-Newbies

I haven't camped since I was a teenager but we impulsively purchased a 95 Chinook in January for 14900 (in Mass). We think we are the 3rd owners. So far it looks to be in great shape. We drove it home from Mass to Vermont. My husband said it handled very well. It was comfortable as the passenger!
Our list of things done since the purchase:
Replaced tires.
Replace the clip on the invertor door.
Replaced shower molding.
Repaired fantastic fan.
Replaced the stereo speakers.
Repaired the clock.
Redid the caulking by the sink.
Caulked the roof vents.
Replaced a cargo door clip (to keep the door held open)
Changed the sink and bathroom faucet handles.
That's it so far.
Everything else is in original shape and working well.
So exciting!
