Hello everyone! Let me start by saying I have never owned or camped in a RV. That being said, I bought a 1987 Winnebago Chieftian p30 for $1000.00. The reason I mention the price is because it seems to need a lot of work and that is why I am here. I will have to search the forums for everything that this thing needs. I am glad there are forums for everthing now days and I appreciate in advance all of the help I am sure to receive.

Welcome to the forum. I bought by 92 Tioga and have had to do a lot of work to it and pay to have a lot of work done to it. My priority was getting it to pass inspection - that cost about $2,000 and it was work I couldn't do. Then, I tried doing a little work to the fiberglass body and got in over my head - another $600. Next, I started cleaning/testing/repairing the appliances and once again got in over my head - $2,000 including a brand new fridge. Now, everything works, it is a safe vehicle, and drives pretty well. In fact, I am going camping again next week!

Your rig makes you eligible to join the Vintage RV forum ...so check it out & ask for some "karma while you are there. You should also visit the Winnebago forum where everyone there is very helpful too.
