    Just purchased our first PUP... a 91 Jayco 1006... needs some TLC but its a great starter for a family of 4 from Peoria IL. We will be making our maiden voyage in a few short weeks so I'm sure you'll hear much more from us and plenty of questions.

    Used to go camping in a PUP with my family years ago and this will give us a chance for us to bring it back and start some memories with the girls.

    Plans for the season:
    Clean canvas inside and out including patching a few small holes -- looks like there are some nice repairs previously so also looking into possible canvas replacement but pretty nervous about that
    Lube- silicone lifter post and bed, figure out how to lube winch and push rods, lube bearings
    Remove faded cracking exterior decals
    Replace bulbs and check fuses -- can't seem to get the upper running lights to light but emergency flashers and brake lights work
    Refresh paint on exterior
    Recover cushions and curtains
    Paint interior cabinets
    Install new flooring with vinyl tile
    Install water tank- this model has water hookup and heater but no storage tank
    Install battery
    Lube locking door handle- sticking a bit
