New Vintage Owner
I have an introduction posted in the introduction section of the forum, but it was suggested I come over here and do the same, so here I is...
We just bought a 77 Sportscoach 25ft. Chevy engine/chassis. The overall unit is in decent enough shape. It's had some updates over the years, but as I learned in driving it to the RV shop, a 45 minute drive, the drive train needs a lot of work (hey, at least it was driveable....sort of)
We knew going into it, that it would need work just to get it to the point of using, but I was hoping for less work than what I learned about it after the harrowing drive of getting it to the guys who will do the bulk of the drive train work.
We're looking forward to when it's more safe to drive, and then we can slowly update the RV parts of it as needed. As I mentioned in the intro post, we're not over the road RVers. We're music festival and weekend campers. So even though I know I can't take off for California (from NC) in this thing, I look forward to heading up in the mountains, or our annual music festival trips in our vintage motorhome.
I look forward to picking up info and how-tos from those of you who have gone before us in repairing/renovating their vintage RV.
