New RV in the family

a neighbor died this past summer and the housing authority told the widow to get rid of the old motorhome..she was trying to sell it..but not many around here have room for a 38 ft camper or knowledge to fix it.. Batterys all dead didnt help either..so she asked around and one of her neighbors called me.i went over with a battery.checked all fluids. it started in about 4 turns of the 454.gave her some $ which she didnt want and my son drove it to my place so we could fix signal lights.and fasten some loose doors and cut the power step off with cordless grinder..then added 5 gallons of premium gas i have at home.and he drove it to his shop few miles away. it has a 4500 Honda generator..a 2021 Propane tank and 2021 AC retrofit.and a 2018 Awning. sons not sure what he will do with it.put on a friends lake lot or sell parts of it and then take body off the chassis and put a 67 C50 body he has and build a ramp truck.with 99,000 kms.should be some life left in it..

Why cut the steps off? They're relatively cheap and simple to fix compared to buying new ones.

It was mighty kind of you to help her out! It's nice to have good neighbors.

It's so weird being the same age as old people.

That's going to be an engineering exercise. The 67 cab has all the controls mounted in the cab, the RV has them mounted on the chassis. Lots of work, especially updating brakes and the steering.
