Another Noob!

Greetings to all!!! Me and my girlfriend are both 38. I am a disabled Navy Veteran and father of a 13 year old girl. We recently acquired a 77 Pace Arrow 29 ft class A RV. We are preparing to completely renovate it inside and out.

Congratulations PapaJ38!

Have fun with your new hobby. If you get a chance, pictures of what you have done would be nice. I am not handy by a long shot, but I love to see what others can do.
