Thumbs up Mystery Rambler

Hi folks. I posted earlier in the week in the new members forum about a 29ft holliday rambler that i recently bought for $400. It has no model or year markings left on it that I can find, but I think I have it between a 78 and 78 and an 82 model. Any input would be great. I have already began gutting this gem, and i have a real chore ahead of me. Any tricks, money saving tips, good advice, will be put to good use. I plan on updating my progress(or lack therof) on this thread. this is my first RV, and my first restoration. Here's to jumping in head in head first....cheers[ATTACH]Click image for larger version

With 70s this is not as easy to do but what is the Vehicle Identification Number?

Somewhere in the vehicle there should be a sticker with the info on it. But if you can name teh chassis it's built on and the VIN I can try... I used to know how to do that stuff.

Usually the VIN is stamped on the tow arms. They may be painted over, but that's where they usually put them.

Wow, that's a good price. It looks good on the outside but it looks like you have your work cut out for you on the inside. Good luck and keep us posted.

I have one that looks just like it and its a 74. Check the date on the tail light lense that will get you within a year of the date. You probably got a 3000 series /329.

It has to be completely gutted and redone. It is all aluminum studs and shell, Sp worst case scenario I get frustrated, I got about $700 worth of scrap metal to sell.
