Got the 84 cab painted Wed. Came out pretty slick. Used Rustolium oil based enamel with an excellerator,only $7.00a pint,ecell.$9.00 Sure made the difference in drying time. Put the mirrors and side marker lights on and she's ready to go. Heading over to Richmond KOA for the weekend,hope the rain holds to the north. taking plenty of games for the kids just in case.

Good antique hunting around Richmond, IN. We found a pier mirror that looks like it was built for our house.

I don't think it is "vintage" like antique cars although I am sure there is some interest there. As I see it, the bulk of interest will be from people who are buying older RVs to try the life style out without risking much money. At least this is my motive in the subject. I am looking for support for the problems any older machine might have and I would like to fix up the "old girl" to look nice as well.

Dan

For those who want a quality vintage RV which has a very high quality construction look at the Barth.

Here is a nice 1985 Barth Regal with pictures of the construction. All Barths from 1969-1998 were made the same way. Whether a Gas Regal or a Regency diesel pusher they were all made in the same shop with the same quality construction.

Ryegal, I appreciate the quality and character of the vintage campers and thought others might also. I also thought it would be nice if we had a forum to exchange ideas and resourses. Dan is on target, most of us get an older rig to see if the type will fit our needs. Then you stumble on to one, as I did the Kencraft, and want to rescue it. If it works for you it is very rewarding, if not it can usualy be passed on with out much loss. It was posted a few weeks ago to begin a thread about restoration and I would like to follow up with that.
