Renovating '98 Sea Breeze by National RV

Hello to all! I've been "lurking" on this forum for several years now - thought it was high time to actually join!

The hubby and I recently purchased a 1998 Sea Breeze by National RV. She's in sound shape mechanically - but needs a GREAT deal of TLC as far as redecorating the interior, cleaning/polishing up the exterior, getting our systems and appliances checked/upgraded, etc.

We've already put six new tires on her, got an oil change/lube, recharged the AC, replaced front sway bushings, and a few other things.

She's got 68,000 miles on her. We knew how much work she needed so we REALLY beat up the dealer selling her. She was originally listed at $13.5K. We ended up paying what the dealer paid - $4,900. Our (ideal) budget is an additional $5K for repairs, maintenance and upgrades. The above noted items have taken about half that budget thus far.

We're celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary this year, so we're renovating her for a cross-country trip in September/October from PA to CA and back (both to see the country and visit our son and DIL.)

I'm a writer and have done research/appearances on a couple of TV shows. My husband is a recovering radio morning man, so - of course - we're blogging and doing videos about this crazy project, LOL - mostly to entertain our family and friends.

I look forward to meeting other Sea Breeze owners, and to good RV conversation in general.

Thanks for adding me!
