Hi everyone,

Iím brand new here, and brand new to the class A RV ownership life. Iíve had some experience with Jayco bumper pull campers, but this is a whole new world for me.

The title is correct, I did purchase a 1996 Scenic Cruiser 8361 diesel for $2500. The coach has sat outside and untouched for approximately six years. Last year, the owner paid me $300 to get the chassis engine running. It was during that time I began to fall in love with the vehicle and realized some possible potential.

One thing lead to another and I wound up offering him $2100 for it. He counter offered $2500 and I accepted. I have replaced all six tires, removed a bird nest from the furnace, changed the engine oil, filters and fuel filters on the chassis and generator engines and had it inspected and licensed.

Iíve taken it on a couple hour or two long road trips and love it! But I still have a lot of work to do, which is why Iím here to get some advice.

The biggest problem is the skylight over the shower is cracked and has been leaking for quite some time. The wall between the bedroom and bathroom is completely rotted out, but the floor, roof and outside wall seem fine. I would like to not only repair the water damage, but completely remodel the interior and modernize it.

The exterior needs a good cleaning and the roof appears to be in good condition with no leaks, other than the cracked skylight.

All that being said, what advice do you all have for me?

Thanks for your input!
