Question Need a Make over: 1994 Itasca

Our 94 Itasca is starting to resemble its owners. Rear-end sags a
little and the surface decals are becoming cracked and faded.
The sides were waxed with a non approved wax and has yellowed.
(previous owner) Would like to strip down and repaint. I have the paint spec from Winnebago.
any ideas on how much a 27' 94 itasca takes to paint all 4 sides?
And how tough of a job is it to strip off the graphics? And lastly
how to remedie the saggy rear-end. Are new springs the answer,
Air shocks?

I have a 95 Adventurer, with similar problems. I just added air bags to the rear axle. It looks good so far. We leave for a 3 week trip to Florida, so should know something pretty quick. Earlier I changed the coil springs on the front, add a sway bar to the rear axle and new shocks all around. I have also "chipped" the ECM, and modified the exhaust system. I added a cooling system to remove hot air from the engine compartment. One of the best things was to add sound deadening to the air breather. You would not believe how much noise comes from that engine. The sound deadening really made it so you can talk to one another while accelerating up hill.

The only noise issue we have is that the unit shifts all the time when going up hill.

VegasDan is doing a complete makeover of his coach. You may want to follow this ongoing report. http://www.irv2.com/forums/f105/star...nds-61199.html he's posted several pictures as he progresses.

If you don't mind, what was the sticker for the air bag job. Ours has them on front
not the rear.

I think the rear bags cost me about $300 and I installed them my self. I had the bags in the coils in front, but didn't like the way it handled. I did a 4 corner weigh and contacted Henerson's in I think Oregon. They recommended the coils to match the weight on the front axle. It popped the front end up so the coach rode level. It handled much better....
