Treasures in an old RV

David Samples lived in a rundown 1971 Chinook RV in the Bayview District for about six months before he sought treatment for health issues and got into the Dogpatch Navigation Center. The RV, which is in danger of being towed away, is full of items Samples has collected and hopes to be able to keep.
