We want to thank everyone for the input and positive vibes!
After meeting with our mechanic we have decided to move forward and invest in getting Bertha on the road! Looks like with a rebuilt transmission, some new shocks, a couple of tires and some brake work we will have her in time for our first family camping trip in early June. Overall, she is in really good shape considering she is 45 (that may be older in RV years...does anyone know that ratio?).
Today is upholstery day - working to recover all the cushions!! Can't wait to see them in place!
Enjoy the remainder of this beautiful weekend
