My first blog. 1966 Safari originally twin. Now totally gutted. I have repaired frame where needed. Strengthened a couple of spots. Added a acouple extra supports where spans of support stretched too far. Installed a new axle. Bumped up for more clearance. And increased weight. Wire brushed and grinded off the frame. Treated with navel jelly, primed, painted.

Looking at coosa sub flooring. Searching for best fasteners.
Guess I need to put some specifics in my...

A while back our 23D Airstream developed a leak in its Freshwater tank. I decided to tackle this job of swapping the tank out myself. This is not a job for the faint of heart and was one of the harder repairs Iíve done to our Airstream. Took 2 days due to painting tank pan.
Started out by contacting my local Airstream dealer and ordering a new freshwater tank. Cost was $115.99 plus freight. I knew I did not want to drop the old water tank in hopes it could be repaired without having a new...

Home brew Airstream Mud Flaps

Posted 09-17-2018 at 08:21 PM by GMFL

I made a set of Mud Flaps from a single Big Truck Mud Flap from NAPA.
I cut the two flaps out with a bandsaw and mountedthem to the trailer using pop rivets.
Hardest part of this whole project was finding the radius to cut the flap to match the under belly.
Here are some photos that will tell the story
