The floor repair looks good. Mine was quite a bit smaller area. I used the rot doctor epoxy system. I'm still doing the repairs...I'll keep you up to date on my progress.

Finally some pics

Here are some pictures for Nick's trailer before and after we were done working late last night. She's coming along nice. Over the weekend we completed most of the plumbing, installed his new astradome, fantastic fan, and exhaust vent cover, and picked up lumber for his new gaucho/cabinet facings. Last night we installed the gauchos, and laid the laminate until we got to the back. Nick is considering vinyl for the bath area so the water in that area won't damage the floor. He has his cushion foam ordered as well, and put his new countertop in over the weekend (Currently covered by lots of stuff).

Thumbs up Crazy

So I think this is pretty much crazy. I started on this project with tinloaf planning to help me get it ready. When I got it home it needed way more done to it than was advertised. I signed up for The Silver Stars and Stripes All American Rally thinking I had a lot less to do. Then...

Some guy named Soldiermedic offers to drive to my house (45 minutes) to help me work on my trailer. The more the merrier in my opinion. He actually showed up and helped me out. Who would actually do that????

Then he drove out to my house again on a weekday to help me lay my floor. I think this is the start of a pretty darn good friendship. That is a stand up guy!!

Hey Nick,

I also have a 64 Safari and have just started the refurb. From the looks of the pics TinLoaf posted, we have exactly the same trailer.

I had planned on stripping the Zolatone until discovering the fiberglass end caps. Are you planning on replacing the fiberglass with aluminum panels or repainting the interior? I hear a shiny silver interior calling me, I'm just not sure how to deal with the fiberglass.

Thanks and good luck,

Dave

Dave,


It's possible you guys got it from the same person. Check your floor and frame for sure on these old models.

Steve

We are going to do something different with the fiberglass endcaps. Lowes sells this stuff that is made to paint your appliances to look like stainless steel. That was our first idea...but after looking at it we might just paint the endcap a neat color. I think it will really set the whole interior off. The bathroom end is going to all match also since that endcap is much bigger than the front endcap.

Let me warn you about what you are getting into when you strip that paint. My wife sure thinks it was worth stripping the paint....but she only helped me one night. I had another friend helping me and he hated it and complained about it alot. I spent about 4 times the time that either of them spent stripping. Its ALOT of work. In the end I'm glad I did it, but its alot of work. After you strip it then you have to polish it. Thats not going to happen for me until at least next year. Good luck...I learned alot so far...if you have any questions I can help you out.

Nick

Hey Nick,

Want to help me strip my interior panels? No fiberglass!

Also, the website I wanted to show you is here Vintage Trailering. David Winick is who owns the site and does the work on the trailers. Amazing work, and you can see what silver walls and zolatoned encaps will look like if you look at his past projects page on the 68 Caravel.

See you tomorrow.

Steve

I have been doing quite a bit with the trailer. The most recent thing is installing a new water heater. I purchased a 6 Gallon Suburban Gas Electric Direct Spark water heater on eBay for $300 including shipping. I am trying to install it ans still use the Bowen vent. I think I pretty much have it all worked out. I will post pictures when I'm done
