Free Bird Problems
I found the Freedom Bird on eBay. I was a little shy about buying a Motorhome without looking at it first. It was for sale at what I thought was a fair price. I had spent over $12,000.00 and two years time restoring Shaggy. I wanted to go full time and Shaggy was high mileage and too small. The Freedom Bird had only 10,000 miles on a new engine and transmission. The person who restored her did not waste any money in the process, but like any thing in life, Nothing is perfect. Two people that I know looked at her and told me, " it's a very nice Travco for the price." The pages in this section will show what I found and the repairs that I had to make so the Freedom Bird could be a great Motorhome like when she was new.

I am at my first overnight stop. It is November in Henderson North Carolina. It was 70 degrees in the daytime, but it got down to 30 degrees that night. The furnace did not work. It was full of mud daubers.
The first of a few problems.
