Francesca, how can you say such a thing! LOL. In the right hands anything can be saved. I have seen some bolers on here with crushed in roofs that have come back to life. Yes there are costs involved but if you take your own labour out of the equation as it is a hobby after all, then it is just the price of materials. And then it would usually be a Custom Rebuild and would probably never be sold anyway.
I have seen completely rusted out old cars restored to be car show "Best of Show Winners" so in the right hands why cant Fiberglass campers have the same thing done to them.
My own 1971 Boler was an empty shell when I bought it 2 years ago and the only original part is the shell and the closet. The rest is all custom built. You should have seen the look on my wife and my friends faces when we pulled up to buy it (18 hour drive each way) and I looked at it and said it was perfect for the plans I had in my head. After that my friend did the same thing with a Ventura
. He gutted it and rebuilt it to the way he wanted it to be. It is only money, but at least 2 campers have been saved and are now built to what the owners want and not what the original factories think we needed. Weather we spend our money on a custom camper or a custom car our what ever other hobby, it keeps us busy so we are not sitting on the couch watching the Idiot Box.

Except perhaps temporarily by some flipper that knows how to market the old bag o' bones as an "original' or "collectible" or some other who-shot-John.
