I took the plunge!!

Is there anything more fear inducing than buying a "classic motorhome" when you are not Donald Trump? Well, I let my love of AS trump my fear, and I am now the proud owner of a '86 345LE. It's currently in rehab having several issues that would keep it off the road fixed, starting with back brakes and six new tires --- haven't even gotten to the leaking radiator and tranny and such... oh I am sure there are many, many more issues that will then need to be addressed. But maybe not, 'cause the 80s don't seem that long ago to me! ;-)

Plunge vs. High Dive?

If you have time and a sound hull it's amazing what you can accomplish as you learn.

Get her running and stopping without leaking bodily fluids first the rest will come along in stages.

Welcome to the flock!

Congrats on your purchase.
