Mew from NorCal - need advice on refurb

My wife and I live in Northern Calif. and have a 1977 32 ft. Excello that we have used to travel all over the SW USA and NW USA and Canada. It is starting to show its wear and my wife wants to buy a new one but I am attached to it and would like to refurbish it to correct the clearcoat and repair the windows which have deteriated on the inside. I have no idea what the cost would be nor do I know anyone in the area which could do the work. Any ideas.

Hey, Welcome to the forums!
Our wedding anniversary is later this month and we are going to Tahoe and possibly Sutter Creek. Any recommendations on a place to stay? We looked online, but I have a hard time with photos and descriptions. They are often misleading.
It's nice to have new members sign up and participate here. Come back often.

Welcome aboard. Heck' after reading the post on the skin corrosion problems with the newer rigs I would say staying with you model and giving it a face lift tis a good idea. Search the forums and with luck you will find more. I've started cleaning the film off the interior of my windows...not a lot of fun but worth it. Probably can find someone to do that as well, but of course that taint cheap. Still, if you have a good frame and a solid body...well just picture everything renewed. Of course ya know when the wife gets an idea sometimes its best to hang on and follow Did I say that?
