Can be found at ACE hardware.Lowes or on line. Love the pictures. We are all get hammered with rain and Tornado warnings. Will need a boat lawnmower at the end of the week.
Thanks and I'll be sure to look up the Lexel. Two more days of rain and it should be sunshine. Four more days and I'll wrap up a 9 day straight run at work....then camping season officially begins for us lol.

Between the rainy weather, working overtime because of vacation season and spending my days off trying to catch up on everything and the RV.....lol.....getting back to the thread has been tough.

But the good news is that except for paint work on the entry door and replacing three more graphics the outer renovation is complete. All the basement doors are rebuilt and aligned, all the windows have been resealed and reset, all the delamination has been repaired and it's back to its former glory.

We decided to hold off on the last three small graphics since they actually matched with the changes and we will have them custom designed to match better than the planned replacements.

So after almost 3 months of tearing it down to a bare hull on the outside and rebuilding we arrived at our first destination for the summer 😁.

22 years old and still very new to us.

Well done and congrats on saving an old coach from certain doom...

I'm doing the same with my stubby little 17' 1967 Winnie F17.

The chassis work is almost complete and I'll update my post soon. Remember, it's the process that's as enjoyable as the final result. Thing is that the process is continual and never ending with these beasts

That's what I keep telling myself.. And the fact is it's true. There seems to be two different tracks we can travel in life, one is full of things and the other is full of experiences.

I agree completely. Even though I was working with a tight schedule it was enjoyable to do and learn along the way. With this being our first RV it was a learning curve but the knowledge gained will be quite helpful on down the road.

Looking forward to your progress on the Winnie Bad Bolt. I would sure like to find a project like that but I think the wife will need some recovery time from our current one 😂.
