Sunny Side of Life 7-30-2017

   Wow-- it seems CrAzY to me that I have gone from one to THREE campers.  But I love each and every one of them.
     This is Sunny......he was a STEAL!  Sometimes things happen at the right time and you just happen to be there.
     We had been watching this little camper for a while.  As a matter of fact had this camper been for sale before Moon, we never would have bought Moon because the point was to have one camper with a bathroom for when Bernie went camping.  This is why he wants to sell Moon -- because we can only use One camper at a time.... yeah, I get that.

    I did not get pictures of the inside before we tore out the "modifications" the second owner made to him.  But I did get some after we pulled it out.  The original owner bought him in 1982 and owned him up until Jan 2017 when the second owner bought him. He lived in the camper at his brother's house (right down the road from me) for 6 months.  Since he was living in the camper he tore out the back gaucho to make it a larger table and used the dinette for his bed. ** Luckily he kept the piece he cut out that matches the other side!!  Woot Woot.

    The outside is in great shape except......... YUP ........ another broken jack!!  Again we had to use the spare tire jack to get it on the car.  LOL.  It is just my luck.  He has a chunk out of his hitch that needs soldered, 4 broken lights, a busted toilet pipe and a little bit of water damage at the front door.  It looks like he pulled away from the electric still plugged in and ripped the plug holder and part of the aluminum.  Next year I will take off the bottom piece of aluminum and then remove the busted piece and replace with new.
     Ready for a shocker!  ALL of the cushions are in Excellent shape!  WOW.  The original owner took excellent care of them and he did not use them so he stored them in his brothers basement.  No smell, no stains and they all have zippers to remove the covers. They will all be going to the laundromat this weekend.
      I set off a bug bomb (just in case) did not see anything in it at all.  And tonight will go home and continue cleaning up.  Since mostly cosmetic-- and a small rebuild for the back gaucho will hopefully be done in a few weeks!
      He was using the shower daily and the seals look great on the walls.  No water damage can be seen on the floor, and no soft or soggy spots (other than 3 inches by front door probably from sink).  He showed us all of the systems were working-- sink, shower, heater, stove.  The toilet was pulled out because the pipe broke.  We are going to fix the pipe for the toilet and he has the toilet still, we are picking that up today.  Going to soak it in a trashcan of bleach water!  So Exciting!!  Follow Sunny's makeover!  I need to decide whether to keep original or glam him up.

 He even came with an Awning!! 

  The stuff we pulled out of camper!
