Skoolie Doo did get a bath and cleaned up nicely. the roof was in excellent shape when I was up there. pretty aggressive pressure washing and was totally dry inside afterwards.

It took a week to gut the camper and salvage all the good bits. I think it was $750 well spent. I actually got $72 for the scrap aluminum. all components are in great shape and think I might use more than I planned.



Stove, furnace, sink, hood



fridge, windows, doors, holding tank



tanks, and storage compartment will be reused. yes, reinforced and vented to outside



one piece bath in great condition. I might use it or sell it....



$72 worth of aluminum



all the the wood is being burnt in a fire pit. the small pile in front and the 2 bags of insulation are the only things that need to be dumped!

Just need about 2 more hours to pull out the waste holding tank and clean up my mess.

Craigslist, folks' backyards, junkyards.... There's an RV salvage place here in FL if you're ever down I'll take you over there.

You ever get down here to central FL much anymore?

I remember you used to work in Ocala building trailers, right?

I wanna have a bus gathering sometime this year. You really should come down for a visit.

As soon as I latch onto a bus, I'll be able to travel. I hate the wait time before auctions end 2 weeks out.

Sunday was a productive day. Got the floor in. I am just going to put down some polyurethane.






My little helper






Straight cuts for my bae

On to walls and ceiling removal now. Forgot to measure weight, but at 5'11" I can easily walk around.

Quick update on last evenings progress. Got the ceiling behind the driver all out. I still need to remove PA system and radio to get some panels in the front off. Then I need to remove the end and front caps. then I am getting into an area I really don't like..... electrical. I think I am going to delete all the crap I don't need. There are way too make wires in this thing. finally had to use my angle grinder. the L-tracks mounted in the ceiling were mounted with some molly bolts. I then chiseled the heads off. the ceiling is in fantastic shape. I found no signs of any leaking. posting pics after this post...
