Hello all! Newbie here learning all I can so thanks to all you RV veterans for sharing here on this forum! I am sharing my experience as my journey begins with my 1978 Winnebago Itasca. This pic was four years ago before I purchased it. After sitting four years, leaking roof, I have a labor of love in my possession now and am enjoying every minute of it! I hope there pics attach  W%

Hey Froggy it was your posts on that subject that encouraged me to join this site. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge and experience. We are paying back by doing the same! We are really looking forward to this endeavor and even more to enjoying it when completed! I started an album documenting the journey. Take a look and see.

This page is certainly a pick me up for any one dealing with their own rebuild. I love frame rebuild photos, looks like a really good job, albeit unfinished.

Excited the day you brought it home.....Tear it apart, realize the amount of work you got yourself into.....Let it set exposed for a couple years to the elements....Time to sell.

it probably slopes to the back side, once you take the flat tires into consideration for the grade :D

May be right, hood has a little point to it but it also has a lot of "nose" to it like a Ford.  Don't remember bottom door trim like that on a Chevy? Then again, I don't remember a LOT of things from the 60's and 70's. :-[ :-[ W% W% W%
