Bigfoot 5th wheel

Well I did it! I bought a 84 Bigfoot 5th wheel for my toy hauler project. The Bigfoot is in rough shape in and out going to start by cleaning the moss and mold off of it. I'll try to keep everyone updated and try to get some pics. Ken

Hi all, the weather has slowed our progress
On the BF but we did manage to get the roof coated & new vent cover installed.

Hello all, well got some of the inside striped today now to get everything cleaned and try to reattach the cabinet to the wall. Still trying to decide on what shade of new paneling to put on

Yes it's bigger project than I realized.
It took 2-gal of bleach just to get the
Moss off, there was leaks everywhere
The front glass is cracked,the refrigerator
Does not work & the heater keeps blowing
The pilot out. The door side wall has separated
From the cabinet, lots of inside water damage.
This is going to take awhile but I think it's worth it. I'll get more picks soon. Ken

Was going to send picks but my smart phone
Won't let me (it's only as smart as the person trying to run it lol ). I'll try again later.

We had to be inventive with the clamps and jacks but it worked the wall is straight and
The new cabinet braces are in place.
Now for new paneling
