"I'm a sinner. I broke down and bought a "new" motorhome.... well, okay... not real new..... a '92 Coachman 35' diesel pusher...."

We needed something dependable for our business.

Got it for a steal and I think I know why.... it's got real bad dry rot in about 8'+ of one wall.....

Can you pop rivet a new old-style skin one on the bad area? Or is the entire outside all same? No, you're on the other side of country lol.

If not it's a diner project!! Just don't do like I did and throw away the interior walls. Save them for patterns. Lol

You can get a gutter siding man to replace the aluminum skin. My guy down street Ken, has lots people bring theirs to him. He custom fits parts. He does old trailer ceilings too. He's in taylor michigan. He's worth the drive.
