Our 72 Superior

We justed picked this 1972 superior today. Its has the 413 with a 727. Its the 22 footer. It needs love, but we are excited because we get to choose how we want to lay out the interior. We are goin to do pergo on the floor. Haven't decided yet on what we want to do for paneling on the walls. We are goin to make a new custom counter setup for where the stove and sink go.

thanks guys, it will be a slow progression. I'm goin make sure all the wiring is in good shape before I put some paneling back up. How do I know what chassis its on, I know its a dodge. Just not sure how to know which series, all i really know about it so far is it has split rims and its 8 lug.

Be careful when working with those split rims. First thing to do is get rid of them and get tubeless if possible. Those split rims can take your head off if you don't know what you're doing. Safety first. Jim

I would certainly second that thought about split rims. those wheels are now 40years old, rust and age will take their toll. Be especially careful of those rear duals. It would be prudent to deflate those tires before removing them from the motorhome.

Yeah Im goin to be getting rid of them. Planning on getting some 19.5s for it. hopefully I can find some for a good price. I have no desire to keep the widow makers. So how do I find out for sure what chassis is under it, want to get some ujoints ordered and get the driveshaft back on.

I bought some 19.5 rims on craigs list and sanded them and painted. I bought new 8R19.5 tires and had a trucking shop put them on.

what do you guys recommend for a roof coating? My roof from what I've seen it square tubing with sheet metal on top of that, followed by fiberglass. I got a spot where a tree limb fell on it that I have to fix with glass. But I was thinking of coating the whole roof afterwards just to be safe. It is 40 year old fiberglass and rather coat it and be safe then have a pinhole some where. What about something like Sta Kool - 4.75-Gal. Sta Kool 7-Year Ultra White Elastomeric Roof Coating-SK-7705 at The Home Depot or is there something else to go with?

I went with Ames maximum stretch on my roof last spring. No complaints here.

My roof is made of galvanized steal that is painted with self-leveling lap sealant on the seams.

Looks like a great find and restoration project. Stay dedicated and I'm sure the end result will be one to be proud of. Be sure to keep us updated on the progress. Good Luck.
