new to the game

Hey everyone!!! im new in the rv field but have been in and around rvs my whole life. I just got a 88 bounder off an older friend that upgraded. He is the original owner and took great care of the motorhome. I already bought the new carpet im going to install along with tiles for the kitchen area and bath, paint, window treatments, new toilet, sinks, and led lights. im going to start the renovations in the next week or two. I have a few more things id like to get so i have everything to start the project and finish as fast as i can to start using it. ill be sure to take before and after photos since i know information has been limited on the internet about revamping older rvs.

Welcome to IRV2! It's great to have you join the bunch!

Congrats on the new MH! Sounds like you've got it all figured out, now all you have to do is finish it! Post pictures over in the MH area of the forum as you progress.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
