New member with vintage Spartan aluminum camper

Hello everyone. I recently purchased a 1951 Spartan Imperial Mansion,36feet long. It is in pretty good shape but will need restoration,which I am now assessing. I restored an old goose neck horse trailer with living quarters, BUT.. it does not have bathroom, kitchen etc., which this does. Also I've never camped in a camper with water,sewer,etc. so really don't know how all that works! Probably think I'm crazy to take this on,huh! Anyway, here I go ... And will appreciate any help you can give me, especially Spartans renovators. Thanks! ( this is also the first forum I have ever participated in!)
