Bought her for 750 bucks and drove her home. Plan is to live in it while I save money to eventually buy another house (selling my place do to divorce).
So everything seems to be working , but the roof was leaking in a few spots. So far I've torn out the whole bedroom to inspect the damage. Unfortunately some of the steel structure is rusted out and will need to be replaced. Also need to kill all the rust on the remaining structure (any recommendations??). Ive basically gutted the walls in the bedroom so far do to mold and rot.
The front area of the motor home looks to be almost as bad as the back, but one step at a time. Definitely has water damage behind the cockpit area that will be addressed after the bedroom is done.

You have definitely got your work cut out for yourself but I've seen worse. For what you gave, it's surprising that you could drive it home. At that price you can afford to put some money into it. With that and some sweat equity, you could have yourself a nice RV for cheap! Good luck with the project and keep us posted.
Happy camping and God bless.
Thanks guys. I've used POR15 before on some automotive restorations. I'm thinking of making the piece that's rusted out and screwing it in. Then fiberglass it in with matting and westech epoxy for strength. Hate to weld in there.
