You gotta have the IntelliPower!
That is about the only thing I feel this one needs.
I loved my IntelliPower! Now it is gone!

Actually, the new "Sport" Safari has NO rear bumper or compartment... I've been wondering where that waste tube will go... maybe a PVC tube under the trailer for storage?

Love the 30 ft'r... I saw one that was REALLY gone on Ebay last couple of weeks... ALMOST jumped at it. Love those rear wraps! Can you post more pics of the inside and side bathroom?

NICE WORK YOU TRAILER RESTORATION ANIMALS!!!!

Nice vent cover - fridge one I mean. You should see Ella Now - she could almost be classed as a stipper......

Annie you and I are twins - you know we will live on a ladder now for practically the whole summer.

Have a great trip this week, hurray back - sorry we missed the canoe this weekend poopy weather really puts a damper on things.

You will have to drag Costallota up with LadyBug and we can have our own Restoration Rally and anyone else who wants to join in can come too.

Marc, That sounded like a good idea to me but the powers higher than me said no, no, no so I guess the bumber will go back on. I will try to find some pics of the bath before we took it apart. Marvin

I didn't get a lot last week as the weather was bad here, rain almost every day, but the farmers needed it.

This week I started on the outriggers, I am replacing 5 on the curb side, the insluation had fallen and kept the bottom of the outriggers wet and they rusted about half way up.

This is the new ones I got from Airstream, I don't like them as well as the original ones but the parts guy said they sell a lot of them. They seam to be about 1/8" shorter than the old ones too.

Welded outriggers on today. I replaced 9 on the street side and 8 including the two step outriggers on the curb side.

Nice job on the outriggers, Marvin!
When I did the ones on my Argosy 22, oh so many years ago, I made them myself. I never knew Airstream sold them.
I had mine made like the old ones. They were AWESOME!
Keep up the good work!

Today was sand blast day. After 800 lb. sand and about 6 or 7 hours I got eveything blasted and ready for por 15. I thought I had more pics of the process but I guess Annie was slacking on her newly appointed photography job
