1999 Rexhall Anthem 3350L

Greetings irv2,

We've had our 99 Anthem for a few weeks now and wanted to share some of the progress of our build. I wanted to have it complete or more completed than it is before sharing but figured why not share along the way.

Here it is the day after we got it home versus what we've done to it.

Nice job so far. It's good to see someone restoring these things back to or better than there original glory. I added wood floors to mine but unfortunately the slide scratched it and I have to replace a few planks. No problem though. I will just have to put something down for the slide to go over and not scratch the floor.

Have fun with it

Looking good Just got done putting new vinyl planks in ours. Changed out the old window blinds and ordered 2 new front seats. Looking to replace the sleeper sofa. Moved the barely used rear ac to the front of coach and the front to rear. Cheaper than buying a new one.

Thanks for the feedback. Let me know how you address the scratched flooring as I can't see how to avoid it. We'll just deal with the scratch for the time being. A lot of work to see scratches though...

What seats did you end up going with? I have a few picked out but these will be upgrades at a later time as they are not needed. I do need furniture though and can't decide on what Sofa we want? I'd like to locate an OEM style chaise lounge but am not having any luck.

We're having fun for sure and can't wait to use it.

I carefully brought in the slide while having 2 guys push up on it so it didn't scratch the floor and bought a bunch of 4x6 felt pads at HD with sticky on them and put them on the nylon rail. Ours drags more in the middle then the ends. He's hoping. so far so good.

We ordered 2 new seats from Bradd & Hall in Elkhart. Should have in about 10 weeks. Check them out they have all kinds of RV furniture.

UPDATE

Good morning Rexhall fans,

Thought I'd provide a quick update of the most recent progress. It isn't much but it is progress.

Attached are before and after of the steps into the coach. Quite the difference. Needs some finishing touches but we like the results.

Hoping to get the trim and base boards finished so we can focus on other things. Going to do a test run this weekend. Mainly to see how it handles the family and a long drive.

Cheers and thanks for looking

Thank you J Wiles,

We've done quite a bit over the last day as we are getting ready for a test run this weekend. Nothing crazy, more of a long drive and an over night stay. Most of the systems wont even be used since I am still waiting on parts.

There is no shower. Kind of a shame as the one that was in it was in a good shape. We tore it out to clean up the rodent activity that was under it.

No Furnace as the motor is shot. Have that one on order. We also tore out the Furnace ducting to replace with new. Even if the Furnace worked I ran into a valve failure on the Propane Tank and might not have the parts in time to use anyway.

What I really need/want is a front AC cover for the inside. The one present has been modified and not very well. Want to go back to original if possible.

Definitely has been a fun build.

Stay tuned for my pics.

Cheers

Nem

First Test Run

Good morning iRV2,

Last weekend we took the Anthem out for its first trip. Wasn't a very long trip and was mostly about its drivability. We went just shy of 1k miles over the course of 3 days.

Coach handled and drove amazing for its age.

As for the home that still needs a lot of work. Most of the systems didn't get tested due to not having everything working correctly.

The day we left I learned the Propane Tank shut-off Valve decided to fail. So we had no propane to test any of the gas systems. It did work when we got it home so we are not worried. Should get a new valve this week.

Received our new Furnace core yesterday so that is good.

There is no shower unit in the rig so we couldn't test the water systems either. Although I suspect everything will work when that is remedied.

Attached are a few pictures of the trip. Was a beautiful weekend to be on the road

Stopped at Railroad Park for lunch and a view of the Castle Crags along old 99 (I-5).

My wife really wanted to learn to drive the MH. She's a natural at it.

Next trip we'll have more if not all of the coach up and running.

Cheer's and thanks for looking!

Update:

Morning iRV2! We took another 900 mile trip over the weekend. Was able to find a place to dry camp and test some of the repaired systems.

Installed:

new furnace core
new LP tank valve
new LP tank regulator
new fresh water tank pump.

Was able to test all the systems this time and they work flawless.

The trip wasn't just for testing though. We came across a listing for a sofa that fit out coach perfectly and drove to get it. Much improvement over what we had.

Thanks for looking and stay tuned for me updates

Nemisus,


Just curious- did you replace the outside fridge grill or clean it up somehow? Great so far- hope you have years of fun in it!
