Hi all!

Hello there! My name is Candace. I'm 28, and completely new to RVs in general. I bought a 1972 Holiday Rambler two days ago. It needs some work, but I've already made progress on it. The Rambler has the original owner's manual with it, but leaves much to be desired in the way of basic information. I was thrilled to death yesterday when I discovered the hidden storage behind the couch/fold-out bed! My goal is to get the RV fixed up and live in it. I find more and more I like about the Rambler the more I work on it. I am excited to be a part of this community and to learn as much as I can from those more knowledgable! Here's a look at my new RV, right after I got it home. (It's been washed since these were taken) Any information that you guys can share with me about my Holiday Rambler will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Candace: You will find all the advise/knowledge you will ever need here. Pay attention to tires, wheels, axles...........you may need to upgrade to protect the investment you will be making in the living area. Your trailer project looks really cool...best of luck, I bet you will have fun doing the renovation and enjoy the life style.
