Philip, I understand what you're saying and I agree for the most part. If you saw my pictures, you'd understand that fixing the door and painting
are among the prerequisites for enjoyment. My wife is allergic to dust mites so recovering the cushions and ripping off the carpet are somewhat necessary as well.
I am planning on using the camper as a tent: a shelter to sleep in. But I have a few hours of fun to invest before that! My answer to Gilles about IanG's project was full of humor: I'm not going where Ian went!
