well we got all the old shag carpet torn out, found out the water tank is MIA, all the windows work except 1 of the two smaller back ones and im missing 2 of the hand cranks (there is one loose one they were transfering back and forth) floor is all solid no visable rot/damage to the plywood. also had a bunch of snow over the last week and a bunch of melting that helped us find 2 leaks one small one at the back side window and at the celing vent. and on friday i scored a deal on some stablizer jacks and a porch light from an rv parts dealer thats shutting down in a week (if you're in the area check them out before it's gone - www.alchrisrv.com

Looking good, Jeremy. What type of product did you use to line the space under the rear dinette? I just bought a Surfside myself, and unfortunately, the floor under the dinette is in rough shape due to leaks from the windows.

I'm in the process of tearing it out now and considering options to make it more watertight.
