I keep waiting to get my Eagle back. The guy whose shop its in is just covered up. He apologized and I don't want to get mad at him but he needs to change something to get the ones that have been there done and out. I think people stop by with this or that and he fixes it then gets him behind, just a guess.

He had mine ready then started the generator and it overheated, we had been using it and it ran fine. He called last Thursday apparently the water pump shaft broke, burned up the alternator and broke the belt on the generator, sure not his fault. So he is getting a new pump, having the alternator rebuilt, changing out the hoses on it and had him get a new battery for it also.

Since it was there and he didn't get them in he finally got my bilsteins to put on and so here I am again. I hope to get it by weekend but haven't told him that.

But when you get one of these old ones, you can expect this stuff. I sure hope I get to use it for awhile after all this stuff though before something else needs fixed. I want to just fix up the "pretties" in it next. Wonder how long that old washer dryer will last, its the original.

Told hubby eveything on it should be fixed, he said you have no idea of all the big things that could go wrong on it. Nope and I don't want to know!! but these old ones are still old beauties!

1984 Itasca Windcruiser

I've been on here a bit, and haven't posted a pic in this thread yet, I've started the slow process of trying to restore the Itasca I bought last fall. I will eventually be posting questions on here, just have so many right now, don't know where to start.

My in-laws have the same motor home, a 1986 model. We have helped them with multiple remodel projects. If you have any question please feel free to ask.

Start at the top and work your way down. Ceiling, upper cabinets, walls, counter tops, lower cabinets, furniture and floors.

Start at the VERY top. Everything else will be a waste of time if the roof is in bad shape. Make sure there's no rotted wood to fall through and no leaks. After that, the rest is up to you. :-)

I have...I've got the roof cleaned and sealed. Working on the very damaged ceiling now. I will start a new thread soon with more pics and many questions.

Not sure I have have any of my 87/88 Bounder here - it's in decent shape overall, after 20 some years in the Florida sun as the home of a friend of my brother in law. It sat under palm trees most of its life and only has about 45K miles on it. My BIL bought it, drove it up north here, and then we bought it from him - so it's a joint project now. The best thing we've done so far is the Red Max Pro that went on last year. The accent paint, especially up top in the front, it badly faded and wants re-doing. Maybe this fall. The rest of the body isn't in too bad a shape. Little bit of plywood rot along one bottom edge behind the left rear tire, but the roof is sound, the floor inside is sound, and we're headed to Utah in two days...

Very nice! Did you redo the decals and stripes or did the Red Max Pro rejuvenate them?

The 1-inch orange and 1/2" yellow are new reflective tape, applied over well sanded old junk. The wide red stripe needs to be repainted. Decals are more or less original, the side ones are too bad, but that front-top one is beyond repair...

RMP does great on old fiberglass but doesn't do much for decals, so far as I can see.

Thanks!
