New to the whole RV thing - old RV

So we are now in the RV game.

I was gifted a 1986 Winnebago Chieftain 22' with 17k miles.

It has sat for the last 7 years and has not run and is now my project.

I have no manuals and need to find how to get them, owners manual has been ordered and I need to find other than the dealer part sources.

I expect this to be a project and will do most of the stuff myself.

Onward we go!!

Mr. Tinman86 welcome to irv2.
Just below in the Vintage Forum you will find many active members remaking better than the originals some snappy RV's. Lots of info and pictures of rebuilds.
Enjoy the forums and DO post often.

Tinman, love those older RVs. Look in the vintage forum for info on the older rigs. You can join the Vintage RV Owners Group if you want the name added to your name.
