Tell us a little About Yourself
I live in South Texas below Houston. I own a flooring company we sell and install all types of flooring,tile,wood,carpet we also do all natural stone granite & marble.
I havent done any RVing yet but have gone on several road trips. Im looking for a good used RV for now. I want to make sure RVing is the thing for me before jumping off of the deep end. I would like something small maybe 18-20ft I can use all the help I can get. Thanks

I agree with Pat. My camper is also a 1969 and it had water damage and the whole camper ended up being rotted for the most part. When I took the tin off of the sides the entire wall framing collapsed in on itself. I had to completely replace the floor too. So what I ended up with was a bare metal rolling frame and nothing else.
What I am doing is not a refurbish or even a restoration, but it is a complete rebuild. This is my first attempt at carpentry and rebuilding a camper and Pat is right about it taking so long not to mention all of the money it will take as well.
I would recommend passing on this one unless you really love this camper and want to do what I have done. Like Pat, that is my two cents as well.
No, this is not a good idea. It is likely a complete frame up rebuild if it's been leaking for several years. And since you may be new to rving it's a terrible way to get started... in fact, you probably won't be camping for one or two years while you do a complete rebuild like this LINK
There are sooo many good used vintage rvs out there don't even consider this That's my 2 cents worth
