Did you repaint the exterior or did you have it professionally done?

Enjoy







Hey JON,

I kinda thought the interior was going to look good but this is out of sight.

Tell us some more on the history here as far as restoration. I almost hate to ask to take a peek at the motor or chasis.

1973 Titan, 22', Dodge R300 chassis, 440-3ci

Here is our first MH. Bought last week. It needs some new tires (8x17.5) and a few minor fixes before heading out on the highway.

My wife and I have been helping her parents remodel their 1986 Winnebago Itasca. My wife and mother-in-law have done more than half the work themselves. We are now on the home stretch with the remodel, we just wrapped up the furniture install today. It's not my motorhome, but I have a lot of time and effort tied up in it, so I am excited and wanted to share some photos.

This is a view of the living area from the kitchen. We have recovered the ceiling with a white vinyl, re-carpeted the drivers area with a neutral color carpet, put new curtains in the front, new mini blinds on all the windows, painted all the outdated wall paper, installed laminate flooring throughout the house section of the motorhome and replaced all the furniture with new furniture.

WOW....would love for you to do that to mine! FIRST CLASS WORK! We will live in our full time for a few months. If it is as good as we think it will be we might do a total makeover like yours! It's as good as new and better, cause you did it yourself!

My "New" Camper

Just bought this Holiday Rambler the other week. Having trouble identifying the year. No VIN to be found. From the research I have done I think it is either a 1973 or 1975.
