1985 Ford Jamboree by Fleetwood

Hello! I'm new to the site and to my rv.
Anyone else with the same year and model? How has your experience been?
I purchased Veruca(the rv) for $4500 and have spent another $9000+ in repairs/remodel so far... and I've got a ways to go.
I would love to talk to others with the same model. I have so many questions... LOL I'm only 23 and I have NO rv experience at all...

There is a couple, who are going on a church 'mission' to Tennessee in an'85 Ford Jamboree.. A friend of ours died and her nephew inherited it.. It had not been started in ?years.. He 'gave' it to this young couple to use.. They put a new battery in it, changed the oil&filter, put some B12 in the tank, filled it and went to Tennessee... THEY HAVE A CO-PILOT!!!!!!!!!

We had an '85 Fleetwood Jamboree Spirit Class C on a Ford F350 chassis. After two seasons we decided that a corner bed didn't cut it and we were too claustrophobic to use the overhead (couldn't climb up there anyway!). The Spirit was only made for one model year and I believe the design was bought by Firan. Their "Telstar" Class C looks identical from outside and the "Ultrastar" Class A has a lot of similarities.

We had a LOT of problems with the 460 engine, so we unloaded it through a Consigner and waited for something better. we ended up taking 6 years off from RVing until this year, when we got our signature rig. What a difference!
