There is just too much here for me to try and tackle. I am going to put the camper on craigslist and try and sell it as is. Here are some pics of the damage.
wow i have the same curtains same color too,must have come with the 70's campers when it was new.as far as the damage,it does have steel tube framing ,yes? so take off the old paneling & ceiling & replace it with what you want. i have pix of hi-lo's redone with pine board - tile you name it they redid the hi-lo to me there needs & some that did it to resell it are asking $1500 TO OVER $2000 now. Google mash RV.its either a 77 or 79 their not sure,its from desmoines they want $2500.00.i talked to the guy.he took all the damaged stuff out built his own cabinets (his first time doing so) to buy new cabinets/counters was to costly & rebuilt the insides nicely. i think the add is still running,you should check it out,if you want more ideas,you can email me,firstname.lastname@example.org & i will send you the pix of the hi-lo's that people have redone.i hope you do cause i've got all sorts of pix from different peoples hi-lo's so you'd be able to get some ideas before you give up.i'm fixing mine (see my album) cause i want to keep it and enjoy it,but later on down the line if i'm in a pinch & have to sell it. it will hold its value.it might not be original in the end but being a hi-lo there it will always be marketable.
