Update

I will not have the Argosy on the road this year. The floor is removed, and frame being worked on. But, things had a big set-back financially the last two months, so work will continue next year. Now, to get it ready for the winds of winter...

On an off note- a friend suggested I do this:

Sorry about the setback. You'll get it done eventually though. These things never seem to happen fast enough. I wish I could just snap my fingers and have our restoration done. Patience isn't really my thing.

Where would the propane tanks go if you did that mod? 😀

Convert everything to run on gasoline.

Back to work

Well, the winter is over, and I am back at home working on my Argosy.

I have made arrangements for sandblasting and welding the frame. I decided to put angle iron across the main rails at the joints of the flooring for support every 4 foot.

I have to finish lifting the body off the frame - currently scouting in the trees around the house for a set of trees to put bracing across to lift. This way, the trees will also help deflect the wind from tumbling the body around.

Thinking about ordering and installing a grey water tank from Vintage (5" high, 16gal one). The money I saved up over the winter is going quickly

adding grey water tank

I am adding a grey water tank to the trailer which I purchased from VintageRV. It may only be 21 gals, but that should do me fine. I am attempting to determine just where I want inlet and outlets. I plan on having the tank sitting above the axle, and since I had the frame reinforced behind the axles, that is where I am thinking of putting the outlet - staying within the belly pan area, and drilling a 1-1/2" hole through the reinforced frame to put the valterra dump valve about 3' behind the tire. The inlet would connect to my kitchen sink and to the roof venting.

(I am not putting a bathroom in. Instead, that rear area will be the bedroom. I plan on eventually having outside faucets for an outside shower stall when boondocking, and a cheap 'toilet' consisting of a 5gal bucket with pool noodle foam around top, and use trash bags inside the bucket which will immediately get disposed of. Most of the time, I plan on camping where a bathroom is available.)
