  1. No doubt! Where in Oregon are you? I'm in Eugene...
  2. Your words of encouragement are much appreciated! We just finished a house remodel, so this seems small in comparison. I love woodworking and am confident in that aspect. The fiberglass/frame construction will be a learning process. I'll be sure to keep you all updated. My son wants to learn video editing, so we hope to start a YouTube channel soon!
  3. Fair enough! Worst case, the chassis/truck are worth what I paid for it easily. Thanks! Hilariously, there was another local Dolphin that was in worse shape(more to tear out and blown engine), so this one seems like a "steal." Good advice, thanks! There is a mess of wiring in back that I'm going to try my best to preserve. I'll take some exterior pics today. From what I can tell it had this layout(bathroom in back right corner):

  6. Well, I seem to have just purchased a rather rare 84 Sprint for dirt cheap. Luckily the engine runs rather well with 84k original miles and it seems to have the upgraded 6 lug rear axle. The rest...is a total shitshow. The sink/stove/fridge are all gone, save for the range hood, no dinette, I guess the "couch bed" is still there, toilet and shower are there, but most likely non-functional, etc. I have not really been able to find any pics of how the interior of this model was set up, save for this: http://www.toyotarvforsale.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/1984_golden-co-kitchen.jpg .
