1979 Wisp Remodel

Bought a 1979 Wisp for $600.00. Total Remodel project. It didn't come with any appliances or cabinets. The whole interior was blasted with FOAM up to 4" thick in some place's. We are in it for $2,500.00. All new appliances, Windows, lumber for Cabinet's etc... Hope to have it ready for a trip sometime in May.

79 wisp

this thing was a real mess.i've been working on it for about four weeks now. fixing the wood floor and repairing the fiberglass shell . the window holes were all cut out with some junk windows in them, lots of repair there. building the cabinets, fitting the new appliances. very time consuming..

It will be nice, not to mention rare, once you get it finished.
