Tony's 1974 Roamer

Approximate Layout:

My brother Tony had the great fortune of getting his 1974 Roamer FREE.  The previous owner had to get rid of it, as he lost his storage.  Luckily, he was only about a four hour drive from my brother's house.  The next day my brother was on the road, going to pick it up.  Here are the photos we took when he got back with it.  Hopefully in the future Tony will take more photos, as he's done a great many improvements since then.  Until then, enjoy the pictures!
