After first exterior cleaning
History PO had inherited the unit from father-in-law around 1980.
Interior
Plain Jane. Ugly curtains, a few stains, ugly carpet. The PO left us everything from cutlery to the drip coffee make (almost new).

So far, pulled out all of the curtains & rods.
Removed the upper cupboard at the front of the unit.
Washing all the walls with Oxyclean & Fantastic.
Washed most of the cushion covers.
Don't want to put too much time & money into the thing if we can't get back into camping.
Pulled up the old carpet and replaced the plywood floor under the dinette with 1/2" PVC.
Removed propane heater.

Exterior
Scrubbed. Scrubbed. Scrubbed some more.
Got rid of all the black slime on the top.
Washed up the exterior.
Removed all of the old logos & stripes that were cracked & ugly.
Added new Crappy Tire striping and custom vinyl name lettering.
Moved spare tire to A-frame.
Added bike rack to rear bumper.


Replaced the exterior light outside the door.
Removed & rebuilding the left rear turn signal unit. Lens was cracked, repaired with duct tape. Moisture inside corroded the bulb socket almost completely away.

Moved the spare tire from the back bumper to the front a-frame. Installed bike carrier on rear bumper.

Customization
Nothing much yet.
Custom wooden toolbox that my daughter made - painted and carved wooden nameplates added to the sides.

Renovations
Planned:
- New upholstery
- New flooring
- new cupboard doors

Tow Vehicle
GMC Jimmy
