Thanks

Chris-

Thanks for documenting your restoration so well. It has been very helpful in ours. I just found your update tonight while looking for pix and documentation of your bath reinstall.

Great job!

John

Fantastic Fan

Well it took me a long time to do it. I finally put in a Fantastic Fan where the old A/C unit was. It took me longer to get the old plastic patch and sealant off than it did to put the new fan in. I bought it at Vintage Trailer Supply. I got the flat lid, smoke color, temp sensor, almond interior color without the Airstream curved trim. I love the new vent. I should have done this a long time ago....

Plus I finally bought a new pair of wedding cake taillight lenses to replace my super brittle originals. They are really nice reproductions. They come with gaskets and new mounting screws. Also bought @VTS

Just a quick update for an old thread.

I've just been using my trailer as much as possible with out fixing much of anything.

I will note that I an very glad I over built, double/triple checked everything during my restoration. I get it out of storage every year and every year everything works as it should with very little work aside from regular maintenance.

That is all good to here. I want to than you for documenting your build so well. I have referred to it many times. We are still working on ours and will hopefully have it ready for camping this season. Glad to see you are still enjoying yours. I hope we get years of use from ours. I have thought about replacing our AC, but in the south we need it. If I ever do it will be for the same fantastic fan you installed.
