Cool Project 1984 Winnebago Chieftain 22FT

I've owned it for about two months but just got started on the teardown. Cost so far is $300.00. It did not come with the genny but I plan to pick up a 4 KW Onan. Rear bumber was bent removing it from its previous location.

Great to see another Bago being saved. You can have a great motor home when it is fixed up. Keep us updated on the progress.

This old winnebago only had 48k miles on it. Person last living in it full time thought it was a racing vehicle. Needless to say he was kicked out. That was in 2003.

Is that crack on the aluminum? Eternabond makes a great aluminum-faced tape; we used a potload of it remaking the roof on our old '83 Chief, where a previous owner had bolted a huge plate of 3/4" steel to the roof (he ran bolts through the ceiling to suspend a plate-steel shelf unit which held the TV). The steel set up a cool hydrolysis with the aluminum which just ate big sections of the roof right down to aluminum lace.

The previous owner HAD sealed the tops of the bolts with silicone, so the years and buckets of water which had poured through/under/around his little TV holder rig were clearly not his fault. sarc/off

We did finally get the roof sealed, proving anything is possible with enough Eternabond...

The crack is over the driver in the gelcoat. There is a very small crack in the back where the ladder attaches, both will be easy fixes. Does anyone know if there is a spray paint that matches the gelcoat color?

Updates for today.

I had to do some work on a squeaking floor and more on the roof.
First photo is the repaired rear bumper. A large sledge and a couple of 2x4s can do amazing things.

One last one for tonight.

There were three layers of sealant on this seam. Something yellow and hard like plastic. Something gray that was very hard to remove but cracked all over. Then white crap which peeled off with finger nails.

More Photos.

You can see the weathering and cracking on the strips. I'll paint the replacements on. Also notice the fuel door which is warped from the hot Texas sun.

So you just cut out sections of the floor then added 2x4 and plywood? You didn't go through the sheet metal on the bottom? That is my worry. I don't want to damage the sheet metal on the underside while repairing the floor...
