My husband and I are restoring what we're pretty sure is a 1969 Rolls Royal, Capri 14. We stripped it down inside to the frame. Painted it and put in new floors. Then we replaced almost all of the "bones" on the inside and hopefully sealed all the inside seams with flex-seal. Now we're getting ready to power wash the outside to see if it leaks!

I did but the primer they suggested cost more than I wanted to pay. After all it's an old camper not a
