Hi, Well I finally got to the point where I thought I should take some pics of the reconstruction. We are at a stand still now because of the weather and all the snow. But we still managed quite a bit.I still have the couch to do. I am using a futon. I need to trim it down to the right size and cover it to match everything else. And we need to caulk the bathroom yet. This is 1978 Shasta class c motorhome. The old lady who sold it to us drove it all the way to Alaska and back. We are from Wisconsin. Unfortunately nobody bothered to empty it after using it. So she sold it to me full of junk.It took a day and half just to empty it.We rebuilt the over head bunk and did a lot of reconstruction in the bathroom. So you get to see the mess.I hope this link works. If it doesn't I will post again later with the right one.Thanks everyone for your help.

Wow, it looks great. Who was living in this rig? They were pretty messy! You have done a great job.

Hi,

Well it wasowned by this elderly woman.She bought itin Texas and drove it home to Wisconsin. Then she took her little grandson on a trip to Alaska with it. After that I think it was used every so often by her kids. Quite the slobs , hey? They didn't leave any persishables onboard.And after getting it emptied I only found one spider(dead) and a few dead ladybugs.So...even though it had junk all over it was pretty clean junk, LOL!

Well that is a very good thing, no nasty pests! Looks like you have yourself a very nice rig and hopefully you got it for a good price considering the junk. I hope you enjoy all your camping adventures.

Cylcledaze,
Great cleanup job! Nothing like polishing that diamond-in-the-rough! Now, go and have some fun.

Oh, that brings back memories of ours. It was a 1972 19ft Real Lite with the Dodge 440 engine. We had a lot of fun in it.
