I like camping with my available time so I don't buy RV projects that will take months to make run, work, water resistant...if you are lucky.

If your bored and have a good place to work on the engine, go for it. Everybody needs a hobby.

She has a lot of history to her, her name is Bess. She’s been taken all over the place and has almost 100,000 miles on her. All I have is time for this thing. I’m definitely going to need a lot of it.

The engine turns over! But it won’t start. So I have super high hopes for getting it running. As for the inside, I plan to the walls, floor, ceiling, rip it all apart. It will certainly keep me very busy.

I figured out the engine type is a ford e350 v8 7.5l.

Unfortunately, major damage to an RV coach portion is often hidden.

There is more damage than originally thought to the inside, but it’s all repairable and a good learning project for me so long as the engine runs good. There is a lot of cool stuff I want to gut the inside and then do.
