1989 345 LE Questions

Hi All,
I recently acquired a 1989 345LE in OK/Fair condition. We plan to minimal upgrades/mods to use this for tailgating, concerts and local fairs. I have reviewed the OM on the Airstream website but I am looking for other resources that discuss "DIY/How to.." such as replacing the old antenna with satellite, effective ways to remove wallpaper, ETC.
Thanks
Jim

1989 345 LE Questions

Welcome!
Start with safety items, fuel lines, electrical, brakes, suspension, steering.
Your rig is a called a “Classic”, so you will get the best answers, and find all the specific relevant info in the Classic Motorhome section.
Suggest you read the fire safety modifications thread first.
See you over!

Everything that Steve stated....especially replacing old rubber fuel lines.

See you at the Classics forum.

Cheers
Tony

The diffence between an Argosy owner and a Classic owner is the size of his package. What I meant was, bigger Classic owners require a bigger package.....cause they're bigger guys.

Cheers

It's not the size of the package, it's how well it's insulated that counts......

Thank you for the reply. We are stripping the paint off now for polishing. Airstream should be very proud of how well the paint adheres
