How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Boy, I'm not sure I'd cut up an old classic like that, but it's yours and you can do with it what you want... I know a neighbor of ours did what you are intending with an 80s model class C, he gutted it and cut the opening in the rear and that's as far as he got before he lost interest in the project and sold it for a lot less then he paid for it and bought an enclosed MC trailer... I'm just sayin'....

It's funny to look at these older motorhomes design as compared to our newer ones today. Much like car designs progress forward, so have Motorhomes. It is interesting to see how people 40 yrs from now will look at our current models much like how we're looking at examples like the one from the 70's above!

I sure would not start cutting the body on a beauty like that. Tow your scooters in a small utility trailer and keep the coach in original condition.
