It's My First Time :)


We made a psuedo-conditional offer on an 87 Sunflyer 22 today. It's super clean and well-maintained and the perfect length in my opinion. We've never owned a motorhome before.

I'm excited and frightened.

We live in Southern Oregon. This looks like a great forum, though I discovered it via some post on IVR2 just now-- I went straight to register and post in the Welcome Mat, so I haven't read a single thread yet.

Anyway, here we are!

Thanks LV2Roam2! Drove it home yesterday!

Looking forward to taking this thing out for the weekend sometime this month! Everything works, including the 3-way fridge, though I only tested it on propane-- and ran the propane out I think. It started beeping at me after a few hours.

Anyway, I may need to put headers on it-- there's a typical exhaust manifold leak on the driver's side from the sounds of it.

The carpet is teal, and dirty. Otherwise this thing is clean as a whistle!

I can't wait. Yes, it's pretty well-cared for, but as you know.. 30 years old.
