I have tons of respect and admiration for those that do such a thing. I've always had the opinion that anyone can buy new, take good care of it, and make it last. Or, take it to someone for a repair. The person that does it themself with the aid of sites such as this, they get the respect deserved.
With this example, a person buys what most would think as a basket case, completely rebuilds, and ends up with a gorgous camper. The benefits are great to, as if anything requires repair, they know that camper inside and out, and can tackle it themselves.
This reminds me of one of my new favorite cable shows: Flippin' RVs:
