The NEW Frontier A motorhome restoration.
I have purchased a 1979 Dodge 19' Motorhome made by Frontier MFG Inc. in Kelowna B.C. I paid 650.00 for it plus 50.00 for the 20km tow. In Ontario we can order the history on the vehicle, which I did and was pleasantly surprised to find out I am the 2nd owner!(bonus). It was on kijiji for a few days and I happened to call and recognized the voice, it was a guy who used to be my tow truck service when I ran my Landscape company.(small world) He told me the owner had put it away in the fall of 2007 and he past away the following spring. His wife kept paying the storage fee's till this spring when she went into the hospital, her son took over the finances and had the tow guy pick it up and get rid of it as someone had left the doghouse off and a racoon moved in for the winter and he couldn't reach the washroom door handle so he went everywhere else.
On to the positives, he had winterized before he put away. He looked after this very well and everything is still there and original. 3-way fridge, stove, holding tanks, plumbing, wiring, AC, furnace, water heater, and pump. I have BIG plans for this restoration including a full entertainment system as well as carPC with all the bell's and whistle's. My only problem will be that it's pre-obd2 so I will have to add some sensors and use more mechanical devices/gauges. Phidgets will be of great help for monitoring holding tank levels and water pump control, and to have full control of lighting. I picked up a couple of new 850ca rv batteries at wallymart and will be firing it up tomorrow after I drain the 6 year old gas and do an oil change. I will post some pics soon. I finally found a place to put that z77n-wifi i7. SNO
