I need all of your help please!
We recently purchased a 1999 Newmar Mountain Aire. The coach was neglected but just before we bought it the owner put about five grand in a new A/C, calipers and disks around and new batteries, Plus a few minor repairs. The engine and trans maintenance seems to be kept up reasonable, It has Banks headers and I am currently putting a CAI system to complete its lung transplant. We started by washing the whole interior down and steam cleaning the carpet which brought new life to the interior. However, the wifey saw a vinyl interlocking water proof floor tile she loved and now the carpet is gone and I will be removing the bathroom and kitchen flooring today. This is a great idea as we have two small dogs.
The coach has about 57,000 miles on it and the motor sounds brand new. Not a click or unusual noise to be heard. I could not find a single spot of mildew or water damage anywhere inside. I immediately sealed the roof as it was obvious it would be leaking soon. Picking up the carpet did not reveal any water damage to the subfloor either.
I am adding a four camera back up system as well as a TPMS and GPS of course and will be reupholstering all the furniture except the leather Captains chairs. The valances will also be upgraded with new material. I am looking into upholstering the dash and refacing the plastic dashboard itself. I will eventually upgrade the windows and add electronic locks if I have any money left at all
What I am hoping for is to benefit from your experience and get any tips, recommendations for improvements as well as things I might watch out for during the process.
Thank you all in advance.
