Just another newbie!

I just bought a 1975 Diamond 22' Dodge Sportsman. Me and another guy are fixing it up to go on hunting trips. We're not restoring it, just fixing it up so its road worthy and clean inside. I've already learned some neat little tricks on this site to help me fix a few items. But I will admit, its starting to get fun fixing the old gal up. I can see myself going a lot further in the "Fixing Up" then I need to just because its cool to see the camper the way it was new. Woody

Thanks guys for the warm welcome. I tell you for the most part its been easy to find parts for it. But, I'm having a heck of a time finding a front replacement matress for above the cab. Its 54"x84" and I've looked at air matress, memory foam etc. The closes to it was a full air matress at 54"x74". The true space I have is 54"x88" and to buy a costum made matress to those specs was over $250..I only payed $600 for the camper! I've called a few salvage places, but none had the front matress either. Any help would be appreciated, or if someone has an extra they would like to sell let me know. Thanks again Woody
