This Jayco now has almost 24K and a 3000 mile trip planned in September. No issues other than had to replace the cooling unit on the frig and the step motor. Always towing the Jeep or Kawasaki.

Congrats! Awesome find! Sounds like it’s treated you well!

Now that is quite a find indeed!!!! Those are the types of vehicles I like to find; older year but limited use. If you don't mind sharing, the purchase price would be appreciated!! Just wondering how great a deal you got on the "one of a kind" RV find! [emoticon]

I would put the LED marker lights and rear tail light/backup lights on your rig. Tremendous change in brightness especially backing up! I also put eternal bond tape around each marker hole, cut a small slit to pass electric wire through, then sealed lens with flexible caulk. That way, if a lens cracks, the tape behind should stop most of the water from pushing through due to wind/pressure. Took about 3 hours to do everything and a big improvement.

I put led bulbs in taillights. Need to get the clearance lights replaced. Do you have a link to the led clearance lights you used? Bilstein shocks on order (current shocks appear to be factory).

Someone on this site posted the LED website that I used and didn't save it for some reason. Search the site or just post up the topic and I'm sure you'll get that link!

The website was etrailer.com for the replacement LED lights and rear tail lights! Super bright lights and good prices! Good luck.
