Vintage Motor Home restoration

A close friend recently gave me a 33' 1988 Fleetwood Southwind motorhome. When the motor home was parked in a storage field in Bowie Texas, it was in great condition. The motor home sat in the field for 10 years before it was given to me. Obviously it is going to need some serious work in order to return it to a reliable condition. Fortunately I'm a DIY kind of guy with multiple skills including automotive, construction, electrical, plumbing and mechanical engineering. I live in Connecticut and planned to drive the motor home from Bowie Tx to Connecticut. I immediately replaced all 6 tires, and changed all fluids. On the way back to Connecticut, I was able to drive 800 miles before the coil and the master brake cylinder failed. I now realize that I should replace all the rubber components (belts, wheel brake cylinders, seals, suspension grommets, etc.). Are there other areas of the vehicle that I should be focusing on?
