Retired at 60

Just bought my first RV 1982 Brave 26RH 454 gas engine.
My plan is to gut it and rebuild so I can live in it year round, living in Wisconsin maybe a challenge. I was a semi truck and trailer mechanic so I have the knowledge to get this done but advise would be helpful. Yes my kids think I have lost my mind but I couldn't let this great running Winnie go to scrap yard and I love classics. I lost my wife 3 years ago to cancer and have 4 children 11 grandchildren and 1great grandchild and my winner dog. Should be done in 2 months and heading to Magnolia Tx to visit family hopefully I will make new friends along the way.

Good luck and we're looking forward to your progress and expert mechanical advice.

If you go to the User CP (control panel) you can set up a signature with the info on your MH so, when you post, we'll all know the year, model, etc.
