We will be in Campsite #4 next month.
We recently acquired a 2002 Fleetwood Coleman Cheyenne. I want to chronicle our experience as first-time pop-up camper owners.

Got Er Done
It's Getting There
I noticed the bar that supports the roof was off center.
So I loosened the brackets and pushed it over.
I replaced the washers with an aluminum bar for added strength.
I was able to add two more coats of paint, thanks to Speedokote.
They sent me four more quarts at no charge to fix the pinhole problem.
Installed the new board the supports the crank and spare tire bracket.
Put a patch over the rotten wood and replaced a small section of floor.

Rear end repairs
Fix the cracks that caused most of the water damage.
You can see where one of the cracks was repaired from the outside.
JB Weld to seal the cracks.
I used FiberFix Rigid Patch to give these areas more strength.
I have more room now.
My neighbor was having some trees removed to make room for their new 5th wheel
I was able to put three coats on with the eight quarts of paint.
These little pinholes kept popping up. I called Speedkote, the paint's manufacturer.
I was told the paint was gassing and that probably caused it to happen.
They are sending my four more quarts at no charge to fix it. :-)
Smoothing out the bumps
Now that I'm done removing the old ABS cover, it's time to prep the top for a new topcoat.
Got a good deal on this body filler.
I'm using fiberglass to reinforce the areas around the brackets used to hold the top down.
