1983 Coachman

This is the camper.  Not bad looking!  It really is a nice camper.  But as mentioned it needs some work.  I plan to remove and reseal each of the windows.  All have subtle leaks. 

I have to thank my Friend Kevin & Colleen for giving me this camper.  They had many good memories in it.  I'm honored to be able to restore it and get it back on…

83 Coachman Rebuild

Greetings,

I've seen a number of posts on remodeling or even rebuilding campers.  This blog is really no different.  The subject is a 1983, 29 foot Coachman Travel Trailer. 

I'm no slouch when it comes to carpentry, so when I had a friend who had this 29' coachman travel trailer that they quit using a year ago due to wood rot I jumped at the opportunity.  It cost me a set of new tires and the fuel to haul it from Brainerd Minnesota to Cannon…

Why are my front brakes dragging??(1980 GMC Vandura 35 class c)

The front brakes on my 1980 GMC Vandura 35 class c motorhome are dragging and I am not sure why.Once the brakes cool off they work fine but once they heat up the front brakes are dragging again.

I took the unit out for a test drive and when I got back home I jacked the front end up off the ground but I could not make either wheel move at all.I left it for 1 hour and they moved fine.

Any help would be great.

Looking for leads...

Hello. I come to this blog with hat in hand. I recently purchased a one owner, low mileage (<59K), gently used 1999 Coach House 192 KS Class B. Being almost 15+ years old it came with some cosmetic warts but mechanically it is sound as a tank. I recently completed a round trip to Southern Utah and back without incidents of any kind. As I indicated there were some cosmetic warts which I have corrected and/or mitigated. However I have one that I cannot seem to correct. The carpeting in the…
