I know shes a bit rough around the edges but a little TLC, and a few upgrades she will be rocking and rolling in about a month.
Here is a public facebook link to the pics I have of it, after tomorrow I will have fresh pics of the outside and the solar array too.
1981 Fleetwood Tioga on a 1979 Chevrolet G30 van chassis
400ci 6.6L V8 (seized after PO drove 50-200 miles with oil leaking from the plug
TH400 3spd Auto
4.10 Rear Axle Ratio
Engine A/C installed but unverified yet.
Overall Motorhome has 83895 miles so far.
What has been done by the PO:
Engine transmission and carb have roughly 4,000 miles on a complete rebuild with paperwork
4 - 100W solar panels on roof
60A Solar controller
2 - 125Ah AGM batteries
Fuel and Brake lines all redone
Complete Dual Exhaust system replacement
PEX plumbing replaced all original
Gravity Fed shower option
20 Gallon roof mounted solar water heater (this only gets 10-20F above ambient and i have already decided on a new design)
Bathroom fan was replaced with a 3spd hi efficiency fan
Most light fixture were replaced with LED fixtures
Old fridge/freezer was replaced with a dorm model
Bathroom sink removed and Commercial sink installed in kitchen
Furnace removed and replaced with Catalytic Olympian Wave ventless heater
USB wall outlet by the bed
3 total inline filters and a drinking water filter on the commercial sink
And probably more I am forgetting lol
Intended upgrades either before june or september depending on how soon we buy a house.
6.6L will be pulled to be rebuilt (again) and replaced with a 1987 300HP 5.7L TBI instead
Factory engine A/C will be recharged if needed
Rooftop A/C will be removed since it is a energy hog.
I will find a location to either semi or permanently mount the Hi-Efficiency 10,000BTU portable A/C in the picture.
Battery charging/maintainer circuit will be replaced with a schumacher or other standalone unit for the winter months when the solar gets little sun.
Air horn will be added
Exterior lights will be converted to LED as well and headlights will get HID, and a set of fog lights
The "camping" side with the regular door will get 3 LED flood lights on the roof to use as "patio" lights
4 scissor leveling jacks will be added
Tow Hitch will be reinforced
Front hitch will be added to carry my mobile tool box.
Air bags will be added to the rear suspension
Looking into raising the front 1-2" as well for offroad clearance.
Range hood will be replaced with a 2 speed model and LED lights
Replace the outdated USB charger outlet with a more powerful model
3-5 addition 100W solar panels
175Ah battery to add to the bank
Might buy a small HF 900W generator if the solar somehow runs out since I traded the original genset for a 454 to complete the engine swap.
More to come depending on how fast I can pull off all that
