Just Started

Well, I gutted the Rear Door today. No real surprises except all of the mouse nests from the past. The floor has one bad spot under the shower pan which is easily fixed. The old copper had 3 burst points from freezing, it's going to the scrap yard big money. Hope it will pay for the PEX.
Next move is repair the front fiberglass end cap, it has two small cracks.
I'm having the time of my life, I really feel alive when I'm working on rebuilds.
Just love it.

I like pics too!

and Jim.... what's with the new Argosy? Feeling a bit of the steel endcap envy? Is that Butch and Beth's? That was a FINE unit I saw at the rally.... AND I noticed your interest in ours too..... I have a hunch......

Two questions: 1) Is the bad spot in wooden flooring? I thought Argosies had aluminum floors; 2) Is the fiberglass end cap the interior curved finished material where the tambour doors are located? I thought the exterior caps were steel.

Some late Minuets had aluminum composite floors, all others were plywood.

Yes, the interior ends are fiberglass and the front one has a couple of smallcracks.

Interstingly, on our minuet the interior caps are plastic and not easily repairable. On both these trailers, the outside caps are steel.

Pictures please. We all greatly enjoying pictures of others projects and handiwork. It's a great motivator for some of us, idea generator for others, and I believe for all of us a pleasure to see another unit refreshed and ready for the open road for another 20 or 50 years.

Hidden Vent pipe.

Now that I have the skins off the inside of the project I'm wondering if anyone has run the waste vent pipe inside of the interior skin. There is
1 3/4" between the skins should fit. It should really give me more room in the bathroom. Any thoughts on this subject?

Great Idea I wonder why they don't do that during construction...
something must present a problem... I don't see how much trouble you could have with a ( vent pipe ) water comming in after couple years ? i dunno ...
sounds good to me....
