I think the '79 Winnie is sold but there are 2 still advertized near me that I looked at but didn't drive as I discovered that Dodges are difficult due to my arthritis and the Class A just is not right for me.

Current idea is a camper on a truck if a large one can be found...just wondering how stable any of the ones I've seen are. I really do not like towing or I could put a TT behind our old farm truck.

A Class C on a Ford chassis is best as my bad knee just does not bend well enough for the other brands.

This could be fun. We just bought a 84 Toyota Dolphin. It is just the right size for me and the Frau. It is in generally very good condition but needs roof work soon.

On the subject of painting, Can this be done without looking "painted over" or spending a bunch for a "custom job?"

Oh, another question, undercoating, does this wear out? The wheel wells are plywood and they look OK for the moment. Should this be a concern?

Dan, Our Kencraft has aluminum sides(the front,rear &roof is fiberglas)with one panel that was brown and peeling. I sanded it, taped it off, primed it and topcoated with 2 coats of tan. It took 6 spray cans but looks like it is original. The undercoat in wheel wells will work if you clean good first. I would recommend rubberised undercoating.

we have a vintage RV and have done a lot of remodeling on it. I would love to see a forum dedicated to this. Some ppl see the classic tt's as a jewel in the raw. They are sooo unique and each seems to have their own personality. Like ours...we think it must be a one of a kind since we can't find anyone who has seen or heard of it. But we love it! Going on our 2nd outing this weekend (Mothers Day gift to ME!)

Did alot of work on the 1980 Tioga I have for sale. New carpet,seats,paint plus other odd & end things to dress it up. Really hate to sell it,looks pretty sharp, but can't keep them both. Now I have to do it again with the 84.

Countryboy up there in Camden, To what degree did you paint you RVs? Mine could use a paint job but I am fearful that it will look repainted unless I spend real bucks.

Not really that hard. Sanded with 220 grit and wiped it down good with a tac rag,masked off the windows and anything else you don't want painted. Used a spray gun that I got from one of those tool sales that set up for a few days around town. Got the paint(enamel) at Tractor supply that matched perfect. Set pressure down untill I got a good consistant pattern and went to spraying overlapping each time and from end to end.Since it was just the front end ,it wasn't too bad.Be sure to remove tape from it beforeit dries or it might pull osme paint off when it dries. After 1st coat dries.scuffed it with oo steel wool . Clean with tac cloth and apply 2nd coat . Dont try to mess with it for about at lest a week to let harden good . It came out pretty slick ofr me, maybe I got lucky this time but I'll be doing it again to this 84 Keystone class c sometime in the next month when weather warms up . Good luck if you try it. Hope this helps
