Yesterday I took my GT into Ryan's RV in Everett. After several months of talking with many vendors and weighing my options. I chose a company that was quality focused and a quick drive from my house. The goal in this phase is to get all my windows back in, the skin replaced in areas I chose, shell 100% riveted down and all holes sealed. There is this stupid antenna hole. Will try to get a patch in the shape of Washington state and a Texas Lone Star. Time is not my concern. Just keeping costs down.

Attached is a photo of my new truck- got this 2013 with 4300 miles on it. Great deal!

The roof of the GT has a vent and a skylight.
Plan is for a fantastic fan and an AC unit.

Thoughts from any of you the next steps welcome.

Aloha and welcome back Dena.
So glad to see that you have not lost heart for your project!
These big soul testing, challenging jobs in life are really soul strengthing excersize once we push thru and achieve our goals.

I had a look at the fantastic time lapse video on your F B page, really well done video Dena. Yet another talent displayed there! Deffineatly an eye opener for anyone considering such an undertaking.

You might mention to Ryan just how many of us are following your project and how much good exposure will come to his work on your trailer.

I motored up into the PNW this summer and found myself saying often how much I love the area in good weather. So much so that I been thinking about spending much more time there. So I have about five different locations on my phone for monitoring the weather. And this El Niño winter seem a poor one to gage the area by. Glad your rig is under cover.

Keep us posted on the progress on your trailer.

Cheers Richard

Your favorite seahawks beat our vikings in the cold of Minnesota's winter. Drat. Oh well, life goes on. Actually I like baseball better.

I'm working on my son's 69 globetrotter this winter. It has a lot of needs, but one step at a time. I remember the photos of your trailer when you first brought it home. Look how much progress you have made on it since then. One rivet at a time.

After Ryan's gets the shell reassembled, it might be a good time to "pressure test" the shell and cure any leaks found.

Roof vents

What i did was replace my 26x14 front escape hatch with a patch that a 14x14 fantastic vent could go in. I also got an aluminum refer vent cover fron Inland Rv, cut it down to fit the existing ABS cover. Also there is a place in Fort Meyers Florida that sells an aluminum water vent cover. If you do a search you can find it. I think they were $12 plus shipping. Also getting at your marker lights when interior is removed makes for a nicer job. Just a note, i used stainless 12-24 pan head screws with nylock nuts for the fantastic vent.
Here are some pics. My goal was to get all roof done with it open. I think an a/c will fit a 14x14 if you go that route.

Hey Dena: Happy for you to have re-joined the project.
I kept my oblong "Astro-dome" but as mine is a 26' I have
two other roof vents and the F-fans fit just fine.
As I mentioned before: the Hehr window re-fit was a PIA.
Tips: I used the orange citrus paint stripper to soften all the goop
from PO's sealant.
The new window gaskets (both for the glass retainer and the frame to
body I tried to keep warm and supple AND (very important) pre-squeeze
the gasket barbs (where they insert in to the mini-channels) away from the
body of the seal so they insert easier.
I'm about a week out posting final interior pics....the end-caps damb near
killed me (kidding) and I'm almost finished installing the interior trim.
Cheers
