Class A Rebuild

This is quite a project. It's off the Adventure Rider motorcycle forum so don't click on the link if you are easily offended by colorful language. I don't think you have to be a member to look at posts.

One big problem I see is that it is going to be overweight.

It is a Newmar! But even if someone paid me to take the coach, not sure why anyone would go through the headache of a major rebuild like that. Way cheaper just to buy something used.

He paid $14,000 for a six year old Dutch Star in 2006. Those coaches still for $40,000 ten years later. He definitely had a lot of time, effort, energy and cash into it.

In Alaska he has plenty of time to work on the inside during the winter when the sun doesn't shine and plenty of time in the summer to work on the outside when the sun shines almost 24 hours a day.
