Hi! I'm new to the site. In February 2018 I bought a 1978 G30 "Honey" RV. I have been rebuilding it since then. The entire camper portion was completely rotten so I started by tearing that down first. Then I took the engine out and started rebuilding it. After that I had the frame and engine bay sandblasted and painted. This Thanksgiving/Christmas I finally repainted the cab. I got about a thousand questions so I'm glad I found the forum, LOL. Hopefully the engine is going back in, in about 2 weeks.

I'm documenting the build of the RV and a 1978 Concord Moped on my website, road-haus.com. I'm building the Moped to match the RV because they will be traveling together.

That is going to be an awesome restoration. Keep us posted! Treat that 400 SB to a RV cam, some valvework and maybe a basic port and polish, you'll thank yourself for that later.
