Overview Undergoing shell off restoration
Bad aluminum. The seams leaked into the insulation and severely oxidized the inside. In some places I could push my thumb through it. A complete reskin is due. We want to keep the exterior as original as we can.

Came with the sink\ice box unit and the wood cabinet but nothing else. We are planning to redo the interior with more modern items.

Some previous owner removed the oval windows at the front and rear and replaced them with jalousie windows. If I can't find window frames for the ovals I'm going to reinstall the jalousies. At least they will give better ventilation.

Systems and Running Gear
Replaced springs, axle, wheels and tires to get it home.
