You can do a very nice finish with Interlux Brightside polyurethane marine paint using the "roll and tip" method (google the method). We painted our '89 Fleetwood Southwind this way. Looked great.
Jamestown Dist. has free shipping deals pretty frequently

If you want to go cheaper, google the $50 paint job

Well been cracking along. Started stripping the roof yesterday. Got about 2/3 the paint off and am using the grinder with wire wheel to get the rest of the paint off. Keeps raining on me so can't get very far.


Finished gutting it today. Did the glamorous job of drilling out all the rivets that held the paneling on. Took the bathroom down too have access to wiring and plumbing.

Found some major rust on the first roof panel, so going have to replace that. I think a smarter person would have walked away by now, but I'm committed now.

Obviously you have the talent to rebuild & remodel this 1972. The floor plan to meet your needs. Outside classic look & inside with all the 2015 stuff you wish like sat tv, wifi, etc. Hard part would be whether to leave the 8track in it.
