Been reading the threads. and have a question to post.
I have a 98 J-1207 camper. Its a pretty basic model, and I'm wondering what years and models would have the similar layout/footprint to salvage parts off of. I intend to put in a bigger underframe fresh water tank, water heater and electric pump as the first "major" upgrades. PO took good card of it so far as I can tell, but I'm thinking that with 2015 technology I can have a nicer PUP without having to look at the newer models with longing.
For instance - if ou find a later model 1207, can you get the longer "King" size rollout and canvas and fit it to an earlier model that didn't have it? As far as I can tell so far, the dimensions for the 1207 box itself don't change, so if you can have a longer King pullout on a 1207 of a later year, it should *dimensionally* be possible, if not necessarily a slam dunk fit.
This is something I'm curious about because there is a RV salvage yard in Phoenix, and if I ran across a 99 or newer 1207 it might be worth consdiering as a project.
Thoughts? Has anyone done this sort of thing? The most major mod of this type I've seen people talk about was adding a slide-out to their PUP, and since later models/other models in the Jayco line had that option, that might be another future project.
If not, I guess I'll be a trailblazer, and take lots of pictures!
