Been drooling over these campers for a cuppla years but affording one was the problem,this popped up in WA for a descent price so we thought bugger it.
Got it home yesty,she needs a bit of a goin over and some tlc,was used on the beach a bit so a bit corrosion startin in a few spots on fittings and a few brackets but nothing major.
Has 2 old flexi panels glued to the roof that look stuffed down to a $30 ebay regulator,batteries are sittin on 11.6 which aint surprising,thats all goin in the bin today and i may end up rewiring the whole unit id say.
Let the fun begin,hopefully all sorted the next 8 weeks or so......

Good pick up thumbsup Just watch how you load as their a fat little unit and once water tanks full only about 400 kg to gvm
I'm sure you'll give it the "toughen" up treatment going by your previous builds power

If it's been on the beach and salty, google 'SX50 Salt Remover" or Buster50, Buster50 has a detergent in the mix so it's a cleaner that you can put through a pressure blaster. Get some and give the whole rig a good going over. This will get rid of the salt and halt any corrosion.

I've been using it for years on boats and vehicles and the stuff is brilliant, I also use SX50 on the airconditioners at work as the building is beach front, extends the life considerably.

Batteries at 11.6v should be fine depending on their age, 10.6v is the 'dead' voltage, try giving them a deep cycle charge before chucking them.

Near fell over backwards when i found this nest of wiring behind the panel,plus a transformer bolted under the seat,it must be 2kg.
All this will go and i’ll make a new panel,240 volt power will be minimal in the refit,i’ll get a sparky to help with that though and make sure its to standards and safe.
Got half the lithiums here for it,had 100ah of 3.2 cells here for ages,were meant to go in my new ute but been struggling with the thought of these under a tray,gonna grab another set and theyll be perfect for this thing.
Redfin i havent weighed it but they quote about 130 i think.
Doesnt need much toughning up dog ranger,shite set of shocks on it though,it’ll get some konis. Will watch the weight,i want to keep it as light as possible.
Dihusky will chase that stuff up,cant find sand in the chassis etc so reckon he washed it if it was on beach,all double gal etc underneath just a few powder coated brackets etc lifting the coat in a few areas.
RM wiring looks like the biggy sadly mad

Good luck, please post progress and any problems you come across. Does it have the original National Luma 90 litre?
The conqueror forum is a good source of information.
