New from ia

Hey all!
New member of course. Alittle about my camper is I inherited a 2002 forest river Sierra (can't remember the model right now) with some good family history, grand parents bought it new in 2002 brought it to there spot as campground host and it sat there for the next 14 yrs it still has the nipples on the tires. They took good care of it for awhile until cancer kicks in and gramps passes in 2009, awning gets ripped off in 2010, grandma sticks to it up until this yr. they hosted for almost 30yrs! So it has some odd sentimental value to me, plans to fix it up and actually put some miles on it! It does have all new appliances except for the a/c which is still running strong never had to have a part replaced on it. Everything still works on it too. Bad thing is it has some serious water damage which I'm in the process of fixing thank goodness to the good old trusty Google and this site here! I will post some pics of it later to show what I'm working with.

Welcome! We love projects! Especially if other people are doing them.

Lots of pictures too please. When you get done you will have something that you not only know inside and out, but has good family value as well.
