Before I had gotten my '75 Itasca. I was watching one of those shows about the Sturgis motorcycle ralley My Late Mother in law turned in her chair and told me I shouldnt have any regrets like she did and that I should go up there, well my DW agreed with her. So I started to think about putting together a small trailer with some basic things in it to haul my bike up there and have a place to stay. well a few months later I was at my friends farm and they were talking about sending this motor home they had been given to the scrap yard. well long story short I gave them the money they would have gotten from the scrap yard. I got the rig running with some help from a friend of mine who knew how to get the older GMC stuff running, did a quick clean on the inside (evicted the mice and their homes) power washed the outside of all the mold and moss and brought it home on Christmas morning. Nobody in the family knew about the Camper so when I got everybody to go upstairs to see it they were all in shock and disbelief.
So thats my story of obtaining our Camper.
PS My avatar is the picture of the camper the night before Christmas when it was parked two doors up from our house. They saw it but never had a clue!

I actually do most of my own stuff but on a rig this big there are some things I just don't have the tools to work on (mainly drivetrain stuff - underneath it's a class 8 truck).

Ha ha. That's funny!

I figure, new RVs are for those who can't fix their own.

I joke around but there is always something that needs a professional.

I purchased my 1990 Superchief from my neighbor last March who has had it since 1993. He took excellent care of it and added many extras including an after market slide out. We drove from Arizona and Canada and back last summer. Paid $8,000!

An aftermarket slide? That sounds really neat!! Not to hijack the thread but I'd love to see pics of that, DW wife and I love our coach but also would love to have a slide!

Well after I finish getting the outside water tight I looking at giving it a bit of a modern paint job. I might have to incorporate a small ribbon and bow just to give it a link to its roots!

I used to live not too far from there and drove right past there regularly. Probably even saw it at one time or another. That was many years ago.

We had been looking for 6 months, first trying to learn what we wanted and then trying to find something that fit our wants for a price we could afford. We budgeted $10,000 for the purchase AND the necessary repairs and upgrades, etc. Thru R/V Trader .com we found a dealer in Napa that had one that seemed right - and it was. A 1987 24' Travelmaster in pretty fair condition for $5000. Another $1500 for front end (steering) work and another $1500 for new tires and we're still under budget.
