1967 Chevy C30 Chinook Camper: gutted for repairs

These are pics of my camper looking its worst so that I can clean, repair and re-paint everything to get it looking, feeling and smelling it's best!

Front view.

Front passenger side view.

Looking into the camper through the door.

Looking into the bathroom.

Looking towards the back into the living space. I've removed all the doors and drawers to paint them and the walls in a fresh coat of white.

A closer look at the ceiling. Removed a panel to replace it.

There are these cool, curved windows at the back on either side.

...but they leak pretty bad, so I'm repairing and re-sealing.

The view looking forward toward the kitchen space. Obviously, a work in progress.

Looking straight-forward, through the kitchen, toward the over-cab bunk.

The worst damage/biggest repair to make is in the over-cab bunk. I need to/should remove all/most of the rotting wood. It's not a pleasant smell, nor am I sure exactly how to tackle this task. I'd rather not deal with it entirely quite yet, as I have limited time until I plan on moving in, but I would like to get it to the point where I can utilize the space. I weigh under 120 lbs so a shoddy, temporary quick-fix that supports my weight and removes most of the odor will suffice until I have more time and sufficient funds to do it the right way.

And, finally...

A beautiful sunset-on-the-lake view from behind my camper.

Thanks for looking! Any suggestions/recommendations for fixes are welcome!

Cool!  Can't wait to see the finished resto.  Welcome to the Rotted Over-Cab Bunk Club.  You are not alone.  We had rot, mold, dirt and an assortment of critters living in ours.  All done now and worth the work.  Keep the pictures coming!
