I believe you are right, it will be a lot of work. Is there water damage? Does she run? Look forward to seeing your progress. Good luck with the project.

Even if there is water damage, you have a one-up on those rebuilding pull campers. The framing is all steel, except for the very front of the cab-over bunk. That means very little to tear apart and rebuild. It does look like you had some water damage up there though. Tear off the paneling in the bunk and take a look at the wood. If it looks fine, then all you have to do is seal the seams on the outside. If the wood is bad, then you get to tear it apart from the outside. The fun part of course is attaching new interior paneling to that steel frame. The process isn't too hard if you know the basics. I rebuilt our bunk over 3-4 weekends, which included a lot of down-time going to pick up supplies.

She runs great. It was sitting in the guys back yard for a year so i went out bought a new battery and it fired right up.

Yeah there is some water damage in the over head bunk. I believe the leak is around the windoww in the front, reason i say that is the amount of "indoor" caulking the previous owner has put on it.

but the fun starts next weekend

Poor thing hasn't been treated with the respect she deserves! Sounds like she was happy you found her though!

Where water comes from can be deceiving, though! Just keep that in mind when you are taking the paneling off
