Well, the easy part......2/3 gutted. So far, the only floor rot is by the door.

Looking good (well not really but you know what I mean)!!! Glad you took pics of those pipes. Forewarn you that most of that pipe is 1 1/4 ABS, impossible to find fittings and sticks of that pipe so do what you can to not cut it up if you're putting things back in place again. Also that smaller pipe coming out the kitchen wall for the vent is an odd sized pipe (I forget but its OD instead of ID or the other way around from normal pipe sizes). Been a PITA to deal with here. Am going to have to transition to 1/4 pvc most places but at least they are interior areas that don't flex much. Checked everywhere and nobody can even special order me sticks of 1 1/4, did find a few joints at the RV shop though.

Not much work on the Globetrotter the past couple of weeks. I own an automobile dealership that has a body shop and it's the guys in the body shop doing the majority of the work. They work on it in their spare time. My main job, so far, is giving the great advice from Airforums.

The front street side had damage that had some repair. The rib next to the window was also bent inward a couple of inches. When the panel came off, there was newspaper (from the year 2000) behind the panel used has a filler, because the rib was not repaired. The aluminum came in from Airparts yesterday.

I stopped last spring to get on another project. The '63 GT is 100% gutted and the shell is ready to come off.

I purchased a '75 Argosy 20' Motorhome. It's coming along just fine. I'll update that thread next week.

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f463...tml#post882690

I'll get back on the Globetrotter when the Argosy is finished.....
maybe 3-5 months??!!

Did you ever publish those original documents you found on the fridge of your 1963 Globetrotter? I have the type of trailer, same model, same year, and I am looking for any kind of information on it, in order to restore it.

Did you ever post those scanned documents somewhere? I also have a 1963 Globetrotter, I will be working on it over the summer and would really like to see some of this information.

Here's a copy of a service manual that I already had. The refrigerator in my '63 Globetrotter is a Dometic MA35. I have not posted the documents that came with my Globetrotter. I'll try to scan & post them in the next week. My Globetrotter is still gutted, I stop the project in order to work on my '75 Agrosy 20' Motorhome. Good luck with your project!

Thanks for the manual, and I am interested in any other information you have on the Globetrotter 1963, when you get the chance. Good luck on your own project(s)
