craigslist is evil... Looks like a nice setup. The family will love it, our kids beg us to go camping in the travel trailer all the time.

Re: Buying a F@RD!, big block EFI 460 1-ton... "PROJECT COUSIN EDDIE"

Thanks Tim, it might come in handy at a local car show... say.. Carlisle???

Looks like i'm in for a total roof replacement though. After more inspection up top its got some soft spot and the original rubber is dry rotted... Had I known it was that bad I would have asked for another $500 off, since the roof alone is about $700 in product and tons of hours in labor. I think that I can tackle it myself. Now I just have to find some overhead cover to house this beast...

Looks like it should be a load of fun. Camping and fixing it. Enjoy whatever you do with it.

gron wore off a little on day 1 when I realized that my 250 lbs butt better not stand on the soggy roof!

buddy is recharging the r12 AC system while I'm gone this week. also found a good plan for overhead cover( which my township requires) a 12x30 tall tarped carport. will keep the snow off And allow me to do the repAir at home

I'd be interested in seeing these canopy plans. I may need to do something as well.

Re: Bought a F@RD!, big block EFI 460 1-ton... "PROJECT COUSIN EDDIE"

the canopy is made from 1 5/8 pole used for chain link fencing and a large tarp. so far I've only found kits online. I'm on the road using my iPhone so searching is a pain

Lots of luck with the new purchase, our family always had a great time camping and such, hope the same happens to your family.

That is my alltime favorite movie, we watch it every Christmas...crappers full

I always end up with the "jelly of the month club" instead of that!

Re: Bought a F@RD!, big block EFI 460 1-ton... "PROJECT COUSIN EDDIE"

good news, found some good RV forums with build pics for the roof. Also made it to an RV surplus near my dads in Indiana. picked up a new rubber roof, trim, glue, 4 new vents, putty tape, and some other little parts for $425. That's about 1/2 price for other places that I found.

Re: Bought a F@RD!, big block EFI 460 1-ton... "PROJECT COUSIN EDDIE"

well, measure twice cut once!!!!

while on vacation I had my buddy take a quick measurement of my roof so that I could buy some rubber roofing material for 1/2 price at a surplus store. Well, he must have misunderstood what I needed and the roofing is 1.5 feet SHORT!!! That's $150 wasted, unless someone needs some roofing on Craigslist... Looks like i'll now have to get more from the same company and pay shipping this time. I could make a seam but I would be PO'd if it leaked after a major reroofing project...

Re: Bought a F@RD!, big block EFI 460 1-ton... "PROJECT COUSIN EDDIE"

hopefully some good news will come out of this.. Craigslist rocks BTW, I put the roof on CL and have someone coming to buy it today. If it works out i'll make $50 on the deal!

That will pay for the shipping for the new roof unless I decide to wait till fall when my dad is visiting, he can just bring it then.

Finally figured out the awning, it was easier than I suspected which is what made it difficult, if that makes since.

Re: Bought a F@RD!, big block EFI 460 1-ton... "PROJECT COUSIN EDDIE"

well, talk about falling into crap and smelling like roses. I sold the $150 (i spent) rubber roof for $200 today! That will cover the cost of shipping out my 30' rubber roof now!

Pulled the swivel chair out today, bought a new mattress, cleaned cushions, filled the LP tank, repaired a LOT of holes in the existing roof as well. I need to keep bandaids on it till I get time to rip the entire roof off and start over...

Re: Bought a F@RD!, big block EFI 460 1-ton... "PROJECT COUSIN EDDIE"

ok, since nobody is watching a motorhome build I won't put much effort in...

After realizing that my intermittent wipers didn't work and the windshield washer was broken as well, I decided to take some engine pieces apart. The washer bottle was buried under the spare battery but after testing the motor I found that it worked. Out comes the multimeter to check and for some reason it's not getting power. A little searching on the web led me to the MFS (multi function switch) as Ford calls it. The turn signal assembly with all the controls on it.

So I pulled the steering column collar apart and was lucky to find that autozone has it for $59 in stock! Rock auto was $84 and who knows what ford wants for one. I'll pick it up tomorrow and see if we have washer fluid (which is an inspection requirement in PA)

I'm shooting for a Canada trip next week so no time to waste with shipping either.

New mattress is installed and I just ordered a 19" LCD w/ DVD and wireless headphones for the kids!!!

Also ordered an Onan generator tune up kit.. man this hobby is $$$$$

I here you there, count the 8MPG which doubles your gas bill vs. the Tahoe!

Maybe the kids will behave in the back, right????
