The old Ford Dutchmen Class-C

My husband fixed the rotted out bathroom floor this past week, and gave the roof seams another coat if some kind of white rubber paint-on stuff. Some of the curtains have been finished. It's starting to look like "home."

We need to replace all the tires.... for about $1,600. Anyone want to buy my firstborn son?

It's been a lot of work and expense but we love the old gal. She's got a great floor plan with a nice size bathroom for an old RV. There's plenty of storage space. We're looking forward to taking that cross-country trip in her next year.

I don't know what area you're in, but up here it's pretty common to see 6 nearly new tires selling cheap on Craigslist or eBay (Kijiji up here) Classifieds.

Folks buy a new dually in the summer time and don't think about snow till it hits, then they realize the "M&S" radials it came with are no good for mud or snow.

They sell the 'old' tires off cheap to subsidize the cost of proper new tires.

I bought 6 Michelin's with about 6k miles on them for $600 last year.

Have a look around your area, you never know.
