TNFiddler - be sure to check your roof and window seals, especially around the big window in the rug-rat room. At that age if maintenance hasn't been done I can almost guarantee you will have leaks up there. With the wood framing the older rigs had you often can't see the damage until it's too late.
Great looking rig, brings back lots of memories.

My sister and I had a great time traveling around the country with the folks in that rig. It was very well built. We enjoyed RVing so much that we both have motorhomes and she and her husband are fulltiming as we speak. I believe that she is somewhere in the San Diego area.

Enjoy your new rig, I know we sure did.

We have an 1971 Open Road on a Ford F350 chassis, complete with the fold down patio and sliding glass doors - and we live in San Diego
