RV Quest Home

Welcome to RV Quest. Follow our story as we rebuild a very leaky Class "C" RV.

Although we've been on a "Dave Ramsey" kick for the past two years, my sanity needed a vacation. While "cash may be king", children are God's gift. My wife and I decided that we needed to share God's gift while we can. We are still diligently working on crowning that king, but finding a weekend a month and a couple of weeks in the summer to spend time with the kids, will have to move up on the priority list.

After being blessed with seven children, we finally have taken the plunge and purchased our first RV. We really wanted a Class C. The capacity to sleep eight is very important :) Our budget is tight so a new RV is out of the question. For the past year, we have been browsing EBay and other used RV sites looking for a bargain.

We found a 1996 Fourwinds Chateau for a nice price and only 150 miles away. Road trip.

After a couple of hours inspection we realize that yes it is in nice condition, BUT the front cab over has leaked in the past. HMMM. If it has leaked in the past, it is probably leaking in the present. Buying this one would mean rebuilding the front cab over. We decided to trade sweat equity over a higher price.

We're going to rebuild it!
