    Hello! We bought a 1999 Viking legend with a lot of naïve hope that it would be a quick flip and off to camp we would go! Well now the roof is upside down and stripped in the garage, and the floor is primed to be patched in the driveway. We scrapped all the cabinets and are rebuilding instead. In the end it will be a beautiful adventure... or we will drive it out in the desert for target practice. I’m so glad to have found this group, because we are nothing but a bundle of questions and your threads have been very very helpful.

    There are a lot of campers out here on the desert that people just haul out and dump. I have not seen any popups though. It's mostly old travel trailers or old motor homes. It sounds like you have a project on your hands. Take your time and do it right. It will be worth it in the end.

    Great story and one those of us who have lived in financially challenged periods know well - my first PUP was obtained on Freecycle and our experience was similar to yours - sans leaking top but adding a crushed right front corner with a damaged door frame. Yes, nothing it truely free.

    That is what we keep saying! Once it is done it will be amazing and all ours. When I’m covered in dirt and sweat I have to remind myself more often lol. But this year is weird and having a focus has been great.

    Yes. It served us well for 7 years of camping and two of my grandsons lived in it for more than a year when they stayed with us at the Ranch. I ended up buying another used PUP six years ago and giving the Starcraft away to a young family.
