New Here From The San Diego Area

Hello all, just picked up a '88 Mallard M-260RB Class C motor home. She is a basket case, been sitting for about 12yrs. Once we all started buying Toyhaulers the C Class got neglected. Picked it up from a friend's parents who were the 2nd owners, and purchased it from their friends in about '99.

Wood rot repair and a full renovation are ahead. I look forward to a lot of helpful threads and insight.

Thanks, -Jake

Thanks guys. I will get a few pictures this weekend before I start the long journey. Motorhomes are somewhat new to me. Luckily I have a ton of experience in the automotive side of things. So first order of business is the running condition. I'll most likely be starting a build thread as well.

And thanks again for the welcome. From what my toyhauler buddies and I can't figure out I'll definitely be asking on here.
