Smile Hello From John & Samantha UK

We are John & Samantha from the UK. We bought an American 5.7 litre V8 Ford RV in July 2021. Our plan is to spend the rest of 2021 and early next year rebuilding the RV to a nice condition vehicle once more. But now though the RV is in a pretty poor state, having been off the road for many years.

Welcome and good luck, I have looked through the videos and agree lots of work, but what you have done so far is to an exceptionally high standard - very impressive IMO.

I would never have the confidence to start such a project, and would probably give up half way through….

It IS a long term project but please do keep us informed, there are several active on here that have owned similar vehicles or tackled similar projects, so if you encounter a problem, start a thread and ASK (please).

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Wow, that's some overhang!!

I've been watching a different renovation. He's been at it for months n he's still at the welding stage. Good luck with it!

Awww thank you very much for your kind comments, your support is really appreciated. I will also let Rob know what you have said. We are so surprised at how much people do love the project - people walk past the house every day and stop to chat with us about the progress being made, even the delivery drivers who drop RV items off also stop to talk about it lol.
So many people think Rob and I must have undertaken other RV conversions in the past - the truth is neither of us have ever owned a camper in our lives, other than I have had 3 caravans in the past
Fear not, there is no way we will give up on the project, we love it too much, and we cannot wait to get out and about in it next year.
We will keep the forums updated with our progress, and hopefully will be able to get some advice.

I am sure that as time passes, you will not only get advice but will be able to give it - the exchange of ideas and experiences is what makes a forum successful IMO.

Thanks Samantha
