And take lots of pictures as you deconstruct things. It's amazing how many times we went back to those pictures .....

I've still got to remove the front interior lining, but I've got to figure out how to remove the clean water tank first.

Half the belly pan is out...it was poorly patched and corroded, so it needed to come out anyway.

Question:
Where was the furnace located in my Safari? Below the oven?

The belly pan is out. The chassis looks ok, the last two cross beams and a couple outriggers will need to be replaced.

I hope to have the body removed this weekend possibly. Once the floor is removed I'll haul the trailer to have it welded and repaired.

I found a metal "endcap" with a built in c channel for the ply wood floor...does anyone have experience with this? Is it a good idea?

Removed the shell today. I braces the inside with 1x6 side to side then added cross braces to that. After all the rivets were removed 7 of were able to lift and walk sideways off the chassis. We rested the shell on some yard stones using the 1 x 6 braces.

The floor was removed and much of the perimeter was rotted and disintegrated.

I'm wondering how I will get the correct arch now.

Get some 1/4" panel cheapest stuff you can find and get your buddies to help get it under the shell an trace shape now, it will change shape as it sits there.

Second option is to do some research on making and using a story stick to duplicate the curves, that is what we did on our trailer.

Yes, I've read about the story stick...
I was thinking about doing that.

I didn't think about it changing shape. Thanks for the tip.

Hey there. Don't know if you've already found an answer to your furnace location question? In my 1960 22' Safari, the furnace is under the bench seat of the dinette (on the left, as you're looking at it).

Good luck with the restoration!

My was directly beneath the oven. It took me awhile to look close enough at it to realize it was indeed the furnace.

Did you replace yours and with what?

My 62' furnace is also under the oven. I replaced it with a new Suburban 24 K btu forced hot air unit. This unit requires lots of power from the 12 volt system to run the fan and therefore has limitations.

I would look into these units as an option. Olympian Catalytic Heater - Wave 3 - 3000 BTU
