The Tin Winnie - I think this is my first project post

So I know it's not a skoolie but in July I bought a 2000 Winnebago Brave that was actually a mobile showroom and later a party bus. It has a company branded body wrap, no windows and completely paneled interior. I've been working on the weekends to gut it as well as fix a few mechanical issues (the catalytic converter had been cut off). It purrs now and the next step is inspect the wheels and brakes while swapping on new tires.

Because it's an RV it has fiberglass and luan exterior but because it's a Winnebago it has a steel cage structure. I'm planning to rip off the exterior and rewrap it in sheet metal (hence the name Tin Winnie) then install my interior. In the meantime, just doing as much as I can as I have time and right now it's not so much budget as time. I have no seats to discard but all this wood paneling is probably going to make one heckuva bonfire!

The pics are of my helper. He hangs out with me anytime I'm over here working on it.

I guess an exterior shot would be a good idea... unfortunately it wasn't on my phone so I had to wait until I got home to upload it from my PC.
