Welcome, looks like you found yourself a real winner. Congrats.

I've been watching the YouTube series on rebuilding a classic.. What a job. Looks like your full reward is near.

Howdy ShovelRyder and

Looks like you've got yourself a nice older motorhome. Once you have it all whipped into shape it will no doubt give you many happy miles.

We love to see pics of remodels so keep 'em coming and don't be afraid to ask a question if needed.

Many thanks to all!Progress has been not too bad.Tore out all the beautiful green shag carpet,happy to find zero water stains and subfloor as new!!!!Menards had a great deal on a stone laminate flooring,lol,about 24 cents a square ft!Orig price was near $4!!!!Not many folks to buy the only 4 packs left on hand after discontinued tho........The camper took two!Floor turned out perfect,all floor to wall trim is done.Little painting to finish up now.Need to order lights,find a better door,and a decent roof air unit.Ended up with seven really nice tires on rims from a family friend for $125!!!!!!All is going great on this thing,wife loves it,kids think its a ball.......Will update with some pics in a day or two!Thanks!

Congrats on the motorhome find and WELCOME to the forum. Looks like you have a project on your hands but what the heck when it's done you'll have a great time enjoying it. Lot of good info on the site, so if you get stuck with something ask away as there will be someone that can help I'm sure. Be safe and Happy Motoring!!!!

There are a bunch of people at the NuWa Owners Forum that would love to hear about your project. Lots of great info there also. But, you must register to access the forums.
