Hello All!

My husband and I purchased a fifth wheel -- 2008 Keystone 289BHS --- to remodel back in April.
Evidently, we are a little in over our heads.
I am throwing a bone in hopes someone on here is in our area (Southwest Ohio) and would be willing to help teach us a few things and perhaps even help us with a few of the things we are wanting to do (ie; remove the toilet, replace with new one, remove the sink vanity in neck and cap the line, etc.) with compensation of course!
Really crossing my fingers that there is an angel waiting to help us out there.
Many thanks in advance !!

Katie

Those are relatively easy jobs. If you can't get someone else, you could even just hire a handy man. You could also hire a mobile tech but those jobs don't really require that level of knowledge.
If you were local, I'd be happy to help you out.

Good luck,
Scott

Thank you ScottG! I've called a few handy men in my area and none are willing to do the job. I agree, they seem like relatively easy jobs, we are just crunched for time and have A LOT to do, so trying to hire some things out. I really appreciate your willingness to help. If only WA was a little closer to OH!

I have never tried this service but it looks promising. Perhaps they can help you out.
You can even hire by the hour.

Spend some time on you-tube and get out your tools.

Don't worry about perfect. RV is just a tool to get out camping. Good enough is just fine.

Lets see "My husband and I purchased a fifth wheel -- 2008 Keystone 289BHS--- to remodel back in April." and now you say you do not know how to remodel "things"! Break out the check book or get on you-tube and learn. Some community colleges might of courses on RV maintenance.

Cut our losses? What loss? It's a perfectly fine trailer. Just needs updated.
Thanks for the "help"!

Do this for a big item, and get some good advice from him for other things while he's there.
