    ~Wow, that is in rough shape. It will be interesting watching the camper version of Pygmalion! I'm sure it will be a fun project for you.~

    Rough shape is putting it nicely. The skin, the under carriage and the cabinets inside are all we can salvage. but considering this camper is highly collectible I have seen them just as bad sell for over 1,000 . We paid 300

    I like it. It will be great when it is all fixed up. The parts that are in good shape are the important ones. Have fun and can't wait to see it all done.

    Will be watching to see how it unfolds. Good luck and bet you will have tons of fun (and headaches) with the project.
    Thanks for the link to watch.

    Looking forward to watching you turning her (I'm guessing it a "she") into a babe.
    You name her yet?

    Woohoo, I finally got some followers ..

    Yes it's a her but I haven't got a name yet. I won't name her until she is done. I'm thinking I might have to have a contest to help me choose the coolest name. I'm totally worn out from cleaning out the garage to make room for the work. We had to take down work benches and everything. I also have to finish up a furniture rehab I was right in the middle of. One thing at a time right?

    Congrats to you!! Good Luck
    (We restored a 1990 GranVille, Class C. Actually, it's a restoration in progress. We just replaced the black tank, last week.)
