I was curious if anyone on her has a hi-lo as old as ours? I would love to see photos and any tips or recommendations that would help us in our journey.
Thanks a bunch!
Your HiLo would definitely qualify for the classic category! Send in some photos of your 1959 HiLo to the forum, please. Did it happen to have the owner's manual? If the repairs are going to be extensive, you will find a lot of information on this forum to help you.
Does the lift system still work? Does it show any indications of leaks in the roof or deterioration of the walls? I hope you have an inside area to store it during your renovation. Sam has posted a response already and is correct regarding brake parts for that model but you can always replace the axle with a newer model. A good mechanic/welder can shorten the axle to your specifications if one is not available; I know this from personal experience.
Good Luck on your project.
