Handn - I would agree... I have seen several AS for sale that were priced too high; some were priced to move, others were just sky high. I discovered that dealers (both AS & car dealers) tend to ask far too much. I got lucky - this AS was parked outside of an RV park just down the road from my home. I decided to stop in and see if the ower happened to be around (I wanted to look inside). As luck would have it, the TT was owned by the local artist who had already tried to sell it a few months ago. (Of course, I couldn't let it go without making a play for it, so I began nogotiating.) I also own several WWII military vehicles, so this was not my first rodeo when it comes to sizing up what you have, what's needed to restore it, and what it will cost.
OutofControl - I found spider webs and lots of dust when I opened the acccess panel to the fridge. I plan to replace the entire unit. No sense messing around. I don't want something else to crap out when you least expect it (did I mention that Murphy is a close relative). I have the luxury of having time and the space to work on this throughout the summer. I hope to get it roadworthy and take in on our first trip this fall. Here are some additional pics.
