5th wheel rebuild...

I thought i posted this BUT as a rookie I must have missed something I can't find it now! OK so here's the deal I acquired a 2002 Cedar Creek, it is bone dry inside and I don't see mold (yet) . 4 years ago it was abandoned and left with food in it! It is a complete gut...we will remove all flooring , lino, furniture, mattress, counter top kitchen sink and start new. It will be completely washed down with the proper chemical to avoid any issues of mold. So now I'm seeking direction of where to purchase re-frig, stove, heater, hot water heater, and anything else I may need...which is everything. I am a building contractor so complete rebuild is not an issue, I just don't buy RV stuff everyday and would like direction. AND if anyone has any ideas as to improvement of an item that they know is an issue I would love to hear it.

Are you looking to buy new or used appliances? You could google RV Salvage and see if anything is near you.

That's quite a project you're undertaking. The nice thing is you can rebuild it to fit your needs and wants. I would suggest skipping the oven, they don't cook as well as a home oven does. Instead install the traditional RV 3 burner LP gas cooktop and a convection/microwave instead of regular microwave.

I would ask a local dealer or repair center about a contractor discount with the pledge of them being my one source for all supplies.

the rebuild is easy we do it all the time in houses. We will completely remove all we need to in a day. Clean it with the proper safe chemical and then order everything new. Install should be 2 days. The last thing we will do is put a floating floor in ...something like a pergo. I'll get some pics before and after.
When complete we will pressure wash it and compound/wax the finish with a machine. We may have to remove most of the vinyl applications as they appear to be pretty faded. I don't think they are worth putting back on ? I may have the girl who does our trucks design something and we can re-apply it. By the way we will not be towing this unit, just going to leave it parked at a campground and hit it on the weekends..or when the boss kick's me out!

Please post some 'before' pics and more pics while your rebuild progresses. I bet there's alot of people on this forum that would like to keep up with how you're doing.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

I've ordered several things from both of those places. Good results with both and continue to order from them.
