Hi all! My husband and I recently purchased a 1978 Southwind for $900. We knew we were getting into a bit of a project but the engine is strong and its large enough for our 6 person family so we decided we were game. Upon closer inspection ( starting to tear the ceiling inside down), we found that it has water damage down both sides, behind all the cabinets and throughout the ceiling around the vents and what not...yikes! On the plus side it has the beautiful orange shag carpeting which appears to be completrly dry
We have decided we need to take the skin off and attack it from the outside, basically we need to rebuild the entire thing. It does have a metal frame under all the rotten wood so I think it will be fairly easy.
I dont know exactly what our budget will be for this but I need to have it done by November.
So, my first question is if the rubber roof looks ok is it possible to reuse it? Has anyone ever replaced their rubber roof with an aluminum roof?
Thanks all! I will post some pics as soon as I can!
