    Default RV

    Just picked up this beast (85 Winnebago) for a trade from my old van and 200 bucks. Basically I bought it for $1100. It has a nice Onan generator, 2 roof air that both work, micro wave works. This weekend I plan to try out the stove, fridge, furnace and water heater, water tank and pump. I did get up on the roof and checked it all out and there were a few small spots that needed sealing but all in all good condition. The motor is a 454 gasser and is smooth, trans shifts real good and goes down the highway straight and tight. I plan to take the family on a 30 mile little trip and test out the rig, wish me luck!

    If the camping trip doesn't go well you can always gut it then drive it to the desert and make some meth!

    Just make sure you keep your pants on.

    The meth lab on wheels is still cracking me up. You could also gut it and turn it into a hot dog stand. Lenny's Weenie wagon would be a fantastic name. After I have a few beers this fri night,my best ideas should start flowing. I'm hear to help Lenny.

    been working here and there on the RV, fixing fixing fixing! Replaced water pump and now all the water in the coach runs great with 45 psi and 3 gallons a minute. Just got the generator running tonight but either the fuel pump is shot or there is a cracked line above the tank. Last thing to try an run is the water heater. This thing is going to be awesome with everything working. There are air bags on the sus, big old air horns and it all works. I drove the bomb 30 miles yesterday and it really is smooth. Hopefully we are going to take it on it's maiden voyage (for our family) in 2 weekends and see how she does. It had a roof leak but I replaced the gaskets on both roof air. I have $137 in parts into now so we are not doing to bad. The started solenoid went out yesterday, my buddy had a brand new one in his garage and he insisted I have it,,thanks Dave!

    He sold it in a day! Had it listed in the classifieds here yesterday, sold it, now the thread is gone.... I'll let him share the story.

    I like your idea though. Could have rented it out for all of us to use, or just parked by Town Hall for over flow nights.
