Hi All,

The wife and I believed it would be fun to own an RV in order to travel the US and visit haunted attractions during the Halloween season.

The wife thought a 1973 Winnebago D18 was cute.  The wife gets what the wife wants!

I bought the RV.  The PO wanted $3500; I paid $2900.  It ran, had a tune-up, new brake lines and brake shoes, and a new floor.  The PO had converted the wheels to 16" and it had 7 new tires.  We took it for a spin around the storage lot and discovered it did not stop well. It also needed a new roof.  I knew because of this website the repairs would be no problem because of the wonderful resources and members here.

I thought to myself, "What a great deal. A new roof, some brake work and a paint job, then we're off!"

Katie, my wife, decided to document the process.
