Chop off the rusty bits, weld on some better bits.

Had some out riggers made up, happy with how they worked out.

Made up some lifts for 3” of extra clearance. Dropped the old axles and replaced them with the new ones. This all went surprising well, as with every project took longer then expected. Lots of extra height now for back country adventures and boondocking.

A couple more pics of the home made lifts. Got this design and idea from:

Bought some Por15 today and hopefully I’ll get to that soon.
Thanks for checking out the updates. Going tent camping now...

Sorry, my pics are all orientated wonky, that's a pain to look at.
I remembered the fix for that after posting... it was late.

It’s confirmed I know what the worst job on a full monty is- POR 15 coating the frame, extra special is a super hot day.

I don't know if you are willing to "part-out" your Dometic fridge. I have a "73 Tradewind with the original Dometic gas/electic model RM 67 fridge. I need the three knobs located at the bottom of the fridge for the thermostat, igniter, and pilot. These knobs have rods that reach and connect to the rear of the unit.

If anyone has any information for where I can find these parts I would be very appreciative. I cannot test the units systems until I have these.

My Fridge was gone awhile ago, sold it locally, sorry.

Good luck on your quest...

Actually, I know a worse job, waiting too long to do the second coat, having to wet sand the F'n frame and then doing a second coat. It does look good though.

Hey Monza,

Did you take any pictures from inside your TW after you popped the top off? I'm curious how you framed it.
