Round 2 -OR- starting over?
So, let me be honest here... A few years ago, I bought a newer 5th wheel that had previous water damage; never did the necessary repairs on time, & ended up with a part-out/scrap yard item. 2 years later, I've since acquired a 25' 1977 Georgie Boy/Cruise Air motorhome. Everything is (relatively) solid/in good working order. (I've posted before in regards to the refrigerator. which is since working!) I'm in the process or removing the old caulking/re-caulking, & sealing with Dicor metal RV roof sealant. The main reason that I purchased the RV, is that the previous owner swapped out the original 440 gas motor for 89 5.9L/6BT Cummins diesel. Although I think the RV is still a decent project, I'm at the point where a truck camper might suit me better. About a month ago, I bought a nice 77 (same year, how ironic!) Chevy C-10 ("Heavy !/2"/"Big-10") that was originally a New Mexico truck. Mileage is not 100% known, but guessing around 68k. org miles. (Odometer says 67xxx), but how do you know if it's 67k or 167/267k? Runs/drives/looks like 67k, but don't' really know.
I'm looking to travel across country, so ideally a truck camper would be easier to navigate with. However, if my RV doesn't sell, I'd still like to have it ready to roll, because I don't plan to sell it less than what I paid for it ($4500), as I feel that it's worth that, especially when I refinish the roof.
So, at the moment, I'm debating whether I should keep/sell the RV. While it'd be more economical to just maintain the 1 vehicle, even if it costs more in gas, it would be nice to have the space/benefits % reliability of the Cummins.
Let me know your thoughts! I'd be glad to post pictures if you'd like; just need some commentary!? Thanks!
