Hi All! We are new to the Hi Lo community and have our very own 1969 189R to thank for it! We are new to owning our own camper/ trailer, but my husband and I both enjoyed camping while growing up. We have big ideas and hope to fix up this gem so we can make memories with our 2 kiddos! We love to travel and be outdoors, and exploring new places and things is always exciting!
We aren't really sure where to start but we are so lucky that there were only 2 previous owners and that our hi lo has lived in the same neighborhood its whole life! We have all the original documents, manuals, warranty information, title, brochures, build sheet, and even the original envelope stamped and dated in 1970 that the title came in!
She looks like she has been taken care of and so loved over the years, but we want to make sure we keep her looking (and more importantly functioning) alive and well for many more.
Any words of wisdom for these newbies?! I have so many questions and am having a relatively hard time finding answers for the year of our hi lo. Naturally, with young'uns we are concerned with safety so other than looking into the tires, brakes, fluids, electric, etc. any suggestions on where to start?!
(of course I want to jump into cosmetic things like finding an awning, repairing paneling where needed, new cushion covers, etc. but my husband is probably right that those are the last things we need to do
Pictures attached...I hope...
