I am still learning. I am in the business since 1998. TC , it is all about WEIGHT and then the rest. 1997, lucky you, from about 1999 on it did go in building fast and cheap. $600 in Canada. I can dream about it. Camper are way overpriced. But that is the market. All I can tell you is , go slow, watch videos. My camper is 10.5 floor, a beast . Have fun rebuilding, that way you know what is where .
