It's only paint....

Have fun with the insides. If you are lucky, you may be able to strip the paint off the vinyl walls, but I'd just paint over it with your color(s) of choice. The inside is so small, it won't take too much time.

How's the outside? I'm not sure why that streetside rear window is duct taped? Is it still? If it's just a question of sealing it, the rubber window seal is available from any AS dealer.

The door. This might be a problem. Once you get it, you may want to post pics of it. Those locks are expensive as well (as in $600 and up! ) Inland RV has a kit to modify the door for a cheaper lock (but I think the kit is still about $200.00).

Janet and husband have swapped out their old axle for a new Henschen. They got great clearance too afterwards.

No AC means less to repair or replace! Janet has also put in a fantastic fan in the front vent. It really helps give more natural light, and air. I do believe they don't use their heater - the small size means natural body heat does a great job (according to them ..... I may not be as full of hot air though! ).

Post when you know more!

Thanks for the suggestions, I need all the help I can get for sure.

The street side window was hit by the PO backing a camper into it while open. I didn't remove any of the tape so not sure how bad it is. Won't close at any rate. I am pretty good at moveing metal so may be able to salvage it. If not will be looking for a replacement.

I will try to clean the paint off the vinyl first then paint if needed. Door lock, neighbor is pretty good with his metal lathe. He will be my first stop. He helps me keep the wood working equipment working and I help him with wood work. Works out pretty good for both of us. The 6 meter may tilt the scales a little though.

I figure a fantastic fan is a given regardless if the old one works or not.

If I read the posts on axles correctly we still have plenty of travel on ours. When it comes time to replace I will look into high clearance options as we like to get off the path a little.
