I am just looking for opinions. I posted in another thread about my woes with this camper, but I figured this is really a separate topic. I have a 1984 Starcraft Starflyer with a 10' box. It was given to me for free by my father. To be fair to him, he only bought it a few years ago and never really did anything to fix it up. The Good: Canvas is in incredibly good shape. Besides needing a good wash, it has one tiny <1" tear Air conditioner works well Lift system appears to work well Cushions are in good shape The Bad: Side walls of roof completely rotten Severe hail damage on roof Front of roof has a huge dent/tear that looks like a tree branch fell on it Axle is completely shot and tires are hitting wheel wells Frame is bowed upward in the center over the axle (prob from the shot axle) Bowed frame makes door not shut properly Canvas track cracked and falling apart Cabinets falling apart Countertops need replaced Flooring very stained and needs replaced Decals falling off Exterior lights cracked and need replaced Exterior covered in all kinds of various stuff that comes in tubes that the P-PO put on it to "fix" leaks No refrigerator or ice box Probably some rot I haven't found yet because I haven't pulled the cabinets out and removed the paneling Little accessory doors (power etc.) on exterior are all cracked and falling apart fender skirts cracked and falling apart Probably more I am forgetting/haven't discovered yet This is what I have done so far: Replaced rotten side panels on roof Replaced stained/sagging ceiling Replaced canvas track Made curtains that utilize curtain track in new canvas track Added LED tape lighting behind curtains Added a water pump Added a water filter Sealed all roof seams by putting Eternabond Doublestick under all aluminum trim Put Eternabond white tape over top edges. The box of brads I had for my nailer had 2 different lengths in it and I didn't notice until after I used them around the edge of the new ceiling. So half was fine, and the 2nd half I did had brads poking up through the aluminum skin. So I ground them down and put Eternabond tape down the sides After replacing the crushed, rotten wood, I bent the giant dent/tear on the front of the roof back as flat as I could and put 2 strips of 4" eternabond tape over it. Not pretty but does the job. I currently have about $300 into all the repairs and additions (not counting the elastomeric roof paint I haven't put on yet). I WAS planning on fixing it up because besides a lot of labor, new cabinets, flooring and some paint would have cost a few hundred bucks. However now I have the bad axle and bent frame to deal with. It sounds like ordering a new axle from Dexter is going to run about $280 shipped. Then I have the frame to deal with, which I don't know if I can really fix it or if I just have to deal with it. Now I am questioning whether it is worth putting the money into. Now I am looking at over $1,000 into this and I seriously doubt I could ever sell it for anywhere near that. So what is your opinion?
