I second the interest in photos of your new toy. The diversity of experience and equipment is just one of the things that make this forum so interesting. And don't be shy about telling us of your first outings, or in asking questions when you need help. Someone here has probably been there, done that, and will be willing to share with you.

Happy trails...

Glad to have you here on iRV2. The old Foretravels are built like tanks and just need maintenance and TLC.

Post photos please.

Wow what an amazing find! A 1980 Diesel pusher coach that is not a refit! I would so SO like to take a tour of that great rig! And I though my coach had goofy 20 year old styling! You will be the talk of the campground in that time machine I'm jealous!

Welcome and enjoy having such a rare find. Working on that baby will be a breeze compared to the newer ones. And they ALL need work.
