1984 Tioga Class C
Brand new, joined the forum as I recently purchased a vintage motorhome and recognize the vast amounts of information available. Hope I can also add any insight I have.
Here's the deal. Found and bought a 1984 Tioga class C-24 foot motorhome. Ripped into the obvious water damage on the walls and ceiling and decided the best course would be gutting the interior and starting fresh. The demo is going well, but I have come across something I haven't been able to figure out. In the corner where the walls and ceiling meet, there is an aluminum "rail" that is screwed into the corner. These rails run the entire length of the rig on both driver and passenger sides. After removing the screws that keep this rail in place, I began to pry on the rail to remove it, but my efforts were futile as this rail is VERY well secured, despite having all the visible screws removed. Im assuming there must be something else that I can't see. I considered getting a larger crowbar and busting it out, but I was nervous about causing serious damage, and thought I would ask the experts here on this forum. I would guess that this rail helps maintain the rigidity of the frame by keeping the paneling sheets in place. Id like to remove it so I can get at the paneling that is tucked behind it and replace it. Im wondering why I can't pry it off. Anyone ever dealt with/seen this before?
Ill try and attach pics
