1981 Triple E Micmac 3

Just bought a 1981 Triple E Micmac 3. I'm 22 and this is my first motorhome ever! Quite excited about it! However I can not seem to find any information about it online. Anyone had expriances with this RV? cant seem to find a manual anywhere.

its 23ft long, so a nice size, sleeps 6, with a chevy 350 motor. interior ceiling needs a bit of work, anyone know the best way to replace the ceiling? thinking about some thin ply or something?

any other genral advice would be amazing! cheers!

Calum, Welcome to the world of RVing, and to the forum.

Don't see a lot of Tripple E products on the road, at least here in the US (although we almost bought a new one 20 years ago). I'd suggest you contact the company to see if they can help you. Contact Us

Post some photos when you can. We'd all like to see this jewel.

Congrats on the new toy. You may not ever be able to find all the manuals, etc. for your rig. Fortunately, most RV's of this era were very similar in construction and sysytems. Unfortunately, they were in many ways inferior, sometimes frustratingly so, to anything made in the last ten years.

Take heart though, there is a ton of free info. here and on line. You can get one or two books, that show the systems, tips for repair, etc. (very cheap on Amazon, etc.) Big thing is go get the propane part of the system checked out by a pro. Then, if you can learn what you are doing, go over everything else with a fine tooth comb.

If you like to tinker, you will have a real good time bringing it back to life, so to speak. With some TLC and proper repairs if needed, your rig can be every bit as serviceable as a newer one and as fun too. For a lot less coin!

After 20 hrs. or so of research on RV's of this era in general, you will have a lot better handle on things and the confidence to fix that cieling and most anything else. The roof (exterior) might be a high priority...if the cieling is water damaged.

Have fun with it.
