We stole ours for $500. As I continue to work on it the "fix up" price continues to rise. I still feel we got a great deal. It is all original and every thing works(the toilet needs some parts and the AC is untested) I needed a new project with all the spair time I have between my job, coaching and raising a family! It has also served to clean up all the extra stacks of money that have been cluttering up the house.

My stepgrandpa died no he didn't leave it to me, he left it to my step uncle and step father, they didn't want anything to do with it sooo..they gave /offered it to me...1974 AS sovereign in disrepair for 6 years some had considered it abandoned, north of Yreka, CA
So Free w/back registration and repairs that I do/and don't even know about.

Cost to move it home to Central Valley-
$1000.00 gas/rental etc, and the man I thought was my boyfriend... ya he said he was at one time. But made it clear on the trip no longer.

All my nightmares coming true and I'm trying to move into it.

We didn't get quite that good of a deal but a wise man once told us upon entering ours, "You should be paying a fine for stealing this" ....a classic line I might add

Look closer, You may find a carcass in a cubby.. of what? Who knows, but it could be bigger than a rat! Dead under a carefully made bed... by who/what? Who knows...Now that's priceless.
Then being beaten back to the house by the huntress kitty...just as freaked out by the finds!!

$5k for a '67 Tradewind. $1.5K in new matresses & upholtery, $.4K tires, $1K miscellaneous (mostly Vulkum) and it's the best $ I've ever spent on a hobby.

Love my "Silver Dollar-sucker".

Compaired to what the cost is today and the way she shines inside and out it seems like it was a steal.

Mine is now up for sale... after all the hard work in finding the decor online, new mattresses and new curtains... my husband decided he wants a Class C RV.. so if anyone is interested in mine I have placed an AD just today, and I also have it on Ebay.

When it goes I sure will miss the forums, and all the lovely people I have met here.

$2K for a 1963 overlander. In my opinion...worth every penny!
