Good to see a 27' Holiday Rambler being used.

My parents bought a T27 new in the summer/fall of 1977, when the T27 came out. Similar layout to yours, but had a second dinette up front (which was later turned into a couch when it became mine).

Over the years it got:
- New carpet
- Rebuilt motor (like twice the power awesome!)
- Rebuilt trans, twice.
- Gear vendors overdrive, worked great with the specially ordered 4.11 axle and new more powerful engine.
- New black and grey tanks, oversized.

Other than that all the original systems were in place and worked for over 30 years.

My brother just sold it a few months ago, nearly 200,000 miles and still going.

I knew it inside and out, feel free to bug me, it'll put my 30 years of fussing with it to good use.

Thanks for the offer of 'help'. Fridge went in smoothly, once our son got here. Got it lifted up onto the freshly rebuilt platform...and discovered the hole was 1/4" smaller at the bottom than the top. *sigh* But it's all good now. Seems weird to hear a fridge running in the RV, tho!
So, the next project was the exhaust manifold, which he got started on--just before getting called back to work last nite. If we'd known that was what it was gonna take, he'd have torn into that first thing!!! So, he's off to southern IN and I'm here in IL, scraping sealing goo off all the seams.... At least, whatever PO decided to goo the seams didn't use sillycone!
