    I joined a few weeks ago after we purchased our camper for $500. Look forward to getting a few things done. So far the site has been a great research / learning tool. I plan on adding some space on the tongue for extra storage and then just some general maintenance. Here are a few pictures.

    Here are my repairs needed pictures. I have already duct taped the tear and the zipper that has become un-stitched. Only other thing is some of the paneling near the ac end has a layer film(laminate?) peeling off. The paneling itself is study and shows no water damage.

    Thanks. Got some new wheel chocks, and some lights this weekend. Also gonna drop it off at the welding shop for a good quote on lengthening the tongue.

    I can't wait to see the progress. We just finished most of our restoration, but still need to paint the exterior some time this summer. I hope you get the chance to see the photos I just loaded of our nearly-finished (but never truly finished, I'm sure) 88 Coleman Columbia. :)

    Got a quote today for doing a vinyl wrap on the camper. $500 for whatever pattern I choose. The wife is trying to talk me into getting it wrapped in a leopard print. Not sure how I feel about that. I think I could handle a Zebra print(khaki & black not black & white)but not so sure the leopard would work for me.

    Did you do the vinyl wrap? I was thinking about doing that to my PUP. If you did will you please post some pictures? I am curious to see how it works with the openings. Thanks!
