$1600 ?????? Boy you got the deal of a life time!!
Felicia does jump in and help when I need extra hands. Right now I am in the very slow methodical process of doing everything that no one will ever see. Breaker panel, sub-floors, plumbing, etc. Which Felicia and I have both come to the conclusion, that she does not have the patience for the mundane. However, she is a great parts and suppl person!
Love the theme you chose as well, especially the front grill. We are trying to figure out our "theme" or style that we would like.
As far as your Dad helping you out, that is great. We rely on our fellow forum members for advice. There are a few of us that are redoing right now and a few that have been there and done that, so it all works
So Welcome to the forums! Check out the Classic motor home section. There is a "sticky" with great info on parts, service manuals, etc.
Looking forward to seeing more of you work and work a rounds!
