Colin,

I purchased two levers from Steve, but I think that I will have to cut off the return in order for them to allow the window to open completely. Correct?

Bill,
I believe they are the same as used on my 57 Sovereign of the Road rear escape hatch/window. I'll check on Monday.

Mine is also a whale tail from California, but the bed in the rear is inserted crosswise.

Progress

Well I have been in the full swing of renovation. I wish I could be more active on the forums, but polishing takes a lot of time!! Lets see what I have done lately:

tinted and 'rebuilt' existing windows
fabricated two new windows
rebuilt the door
finished the first phase of polishing
installed 3 new fantastic fans
rebuilt hatch door
replaced two old exterior panel patches
replaced and welded three street side outriggers
replaced floor under the kitchen and bath
replaced and entire exterior side panel
and a few other things

Soon i will be:
redoing the electrical
roughing in the plumbing/installing the precision temp
installing the dickinson p12000
building a new bathroom
...and well finishing the interior

I have 4 weeks till I need to be at a "liveable" point and while I think it may be crazy, I look back on what we have done in the last 4 weeks and really think its gonna happen. I am mostly relying on the expertise of my brother Chris. I have now gone in debt to him by one trailer renovation.

I have been documenting the process in more depth on our blog But here are some pictures for the forums....

Andrew the Cruiser is looking great! Nice work, I like the tinted windows and what you wrote about the patches and that they are part of the history of the trailer. That's how I feel of the scratches and small bumps on ours. Good luck with your goal of moving in next month, I hope everything goes smoothly for you. Keep posting pictures when you can, my wife and I enjoyed reading the updates.
Doug
