Thumbs up Ford BornFree RV is being restored in South Korea.

I live in South Korea.

I have been restoring the 1994 Ford BornFree RV so far.

I am getting a lot of information from this forum.

Currently, there is only one car in Korea. So I'm going to take this car.
I want to restore it nicely.

I uploaded my restoration process on Youtube.

Thank you for giving me a lot of information.

I want to complete the restoration quickly and go camping with my son.

Thank you.

Oh My! You are doing a massive restoration. Very few people in the USA would consider restoring a motor home in such poor condition. But in South Korea, maybe motor homes are very rare. Hopefully you will find everything you need there in South Korea to complete your project. I wish you great success.

Thanks for the ripple!

There's only one car in Korea.
So it's very special.
Look forward to it.

Great job!

I had the opportunity a few years ago to take a guy from Korea (Incheon) to an RV store here in Michigan. He was amazed, asked me "where are we?" so he could mark the location so he could return when his wife visited. Maybe he'll see you on the road someday and remember his time here.

It will be difficult to make good again, but when completed and looking great, you will have something very special in South Korea....a one of a kind vehicle to show off to all your countrymen, and make wonderful memories with your son.

Nah... you got to be kidding us...

With about a gillion Hyundais and Kias trashing up the streets and driveways of America they surely kept more than one of them dang thangs somewhere in the whole country.....

You need to understand the translation. He means to say...

"One motor home in South Korea", not one car.

Great Work!

That's looking very good. You can be proud of your hard work and results.

How is the camping in South Korea? Are there many places to go with hook-ups (power and water), or is it mostly dry camping? (No hook-ups)

I look forward to your experiances in the future.

Happy Glamping!

There are many cool places in Korea, too.

I will try to upload more videos on my YouTube channel from now.

But so far, there aren't many useful camping grounds for RV.
Especially releasing black water is very difficult.

Be careful and when you explore, stay clear of the DMZ.
