Frank, You made me do it. I just bid on one in AL.

There are 2 days left in the auction so I probably won't be successful.

It's an '03 with 212k miles. It's just out of service and still all stickered up.

I wonder how I would get all the decals off? The aluminum sheeting makes it a little more challenging. Oven cleaner works to get painted lettering off, but I doubt it is the right thing for decals on aluminum. There are local shops that install vinyl. I wonder if they remove it also??

One of these, they work great. a little mineral spirits gets the last bit of glue.

I worked at a place where we used these in the shop...or rather a similar Snap On product. http://www.amazon.com/3M-Stripe-Wheel-Mandrel-Diameter/dp/B00063VT0G

They worked great on aluminum trailers as well as aluminum or composite truck cabs. Once they used them to take all the old, cracked graphics off an 80s Trans Am complete with screaming chicken on the hood.

Outside of ordering some parts it's been on hold until I get some of this other stuff done. To qualify for RV status in Ohio, it has to have a means of cooking, a bed, cold food storage, and a table. In addition we want a small sink for washing up, and a porta-potty. It has a small closet with a power vent that will work for the porta-potty, and a bench on one side that can be made into a bed. I am looking at a 12 volt refrigerators made for truck sleepers, they will cool to 40 degrees, and draw less than three amps. Since I have an invertor, I think it will get a 700 Watt microwave, and a two burner gas cook top. I have a small sink out of a motor home, with a 12 volt demand pump. The only thing I have not figured out yet is the table.

How about a folding card table? Put a couple of small hooks on one side and hang it on a side wall. Nothing says you have to use the table inside the RV.
