Thank you for the warm welcome.  I'm going to spend a happy couple of hours checking out all the great comments and instructions.  I'm about to tackle removing all the bathroom fixtures and plumbing ... so I need all the help I can get.

Thank You Russ.  This is a new adventure and undertaking for us.  We have replaced water damaged boards in our 5th-wheel and are hoping this will go as smooth. Now if I could only find out some kind of information on this particular camper.

We may be calling on you for resources.

Thank you.  Yes, GORV's seems like a great place to be.  I am looking forward to getting on the road and hopefully meeting other like-minded people.

Thank you, Russ, for the kind words.  I'm really looking forward to getting involved in this site.  I'll be full of questions, for sure, and this looks like a great place to find some answers.  First, though, I'll look around and see if some of them have already been addressed.  

Thanks again, Patty

Thanks Russ.

I do have a question. Do you or anyone you know, have any knowledge of the Robin Hood Cadet travel trailers? I have a 1962 Robin Hood. And not find a whisper about them. Please help!

There is scant info on the net.

Thank you, Russ. We have until may to finish this project and will definitely be posting our progress. I will get some pictures on here as soon as I can. I have been doing some digging and cant find much on the '74 Brougham Coach. So far I'm figuring her out but I'm sure I will run into some issues soon. Do you know of any resources for these beasts? Restoring inside and out. Also, power steering and wiring issues.

Thanks Russ

Looking forward to digging through the site to find out as much as possible on my 1973 Shasta Loflyte Front Kitchen. just picked it up a couple weeks ago and after a full inspection looks like a rebuild my be in my future. My first RV so looking forward to the days ahead.

This Bendix Lifetime has set for seven years. Great 440 Dodge motor, Kohlor generator. First big problem was a leaky roof. Fixed all that and of course bad ceilings every where. I think I solved a problem for other Restorers. To fix the ceilings. I took a damp shower towel held to the ceiling until they were soft. I used a staple gun and 9/16 staples to make the ceiling as flat as possible. Then used thin coats of drywall mud, sanded and painted with Killzz, put back vent trim, and other trim, painted one more time. Saved all of them. After 400 miles they look great. and I saved a lot of time and money. Rebuilding an old timer is hard work, but when you are at a stop and people checks out the old boy the shit buttons start to pop

Hey Russ,
It all factory built from Boone Coach works, in Lauarl Mississippi, my understanding they built all sorts of interesting builds for over 45 years. They apparently went out of business in the early 70's. The picture is actually where I found it, at the local scrap recyclers. Just couldn't see it being recycled yet. It has just over 9k miles on it. Runs great. I plan to completely restore it to original build.
