Andy in New Zealand

Greetings from New Zealand,

a while back I was online and happen to stumble on a 60' Murrumba Linda Star, she was in a pretty sad state, 2 windows were missing, the whole fiberglass body had cracks and a few "improvised holes", the interior was mostly rotten away and didn't even came with jacks to lift it... so I did what every other savvy camper person would do.. I bought it :)

Yes, I drove 3 hours, used a block and tackle to slide it on a trailer and dragged back home in the night.
I'm now a proud owner of a empty , mouldy, funny looking fiberglass camper shell, perfect!

Please don't expect any amazing carpentry or electrical skills , I'm a sailor by trade... but will do my best to make it a decent one.

Andy,
New Zealand.
