1976 Jayco Camper Makeover

So, we have wanted to buy a camper for quite a while now... thus we finally took the plunge when we came across an offer we couldn't refuse. We found this old vintage 1976 Jayco Jaywren Travel Trailer on a local classified site and made a quick impulsive purchase. 

Let the fun (hopefully not stressful) times begin while we turn this old junker camper into a glamorous home away from home. "Glamping" here we come! :)

I have posted some "BEFORE" pictures. Stay tuned for more updates and pictures of our adventures.

    1. Peter: Our furnace is non-functional as well, we just use a space heater. I do not know of any places that would have parts. Good Luck!
