1983 310 turbo diesel motorhome

Having just purchased this motorhome, 83 , 310turbo diesel. Several repairs needed restore. The outside skin is faded from the Florida sun, we live in Illinois and purchased on vacation and brought home. Also has a central vac but no hoses or attachments. System vac works do not know where filter or access is to it? Also the shower curtain rollers were deteriated by the heat and need replaced. Will I have to replace total plastic curtain or would like to just do rollers.. Really do love it. We have had three 31ft. pull type. Any info on motorhome would be helpful.

Welcome. You have purchased a great floorplan and powerplant. Shower doors are hard to find. Many have simply replaced with a rod and curtain. A few have replaced with glass doors from home depot.

Almost all of the 80's coaches have faded or peeling clearcoat. The good news it that they are only beauty marks. You options include; do nothing, clearcoat or polish. (the last two require lots of time and or money.)

Welcome aboard.
