Nice looking trailer snoringbeagle. I am sure that Dave or Ronda will fill you in better. The rally is Friday July 31 to Sunday August 2nd in Milan Michigan just a few miles east of US23. My wife and I attended last year and had a great time. We hope to see you there.

Milan is just up the road from Cabela's. A bit of a haul but we would be glad to have you!

The original toilets were what they called "drop to daylight." There are no black tank so you just dug a hole and drained into it. So you if you want to have a functional potty it will need to be replaced and tanks added. We plan on adding black and gray tanks to our 56 Overlander when we replace the floor.

If your interior is in good condition you should definately keep it. You should consider updating the electric system. I hear there is some pretty scary wiring in the older trailers. Adding gray and black water tanks also is a good idea unless you always plan on having full hook-ups. If your trailer has the original floor it is advisable to replace that also since the tiles are asbestos. If you still have the split rims, those should also be replaced! But other than that if the floor is in good shape I would just use it and enjoy. We plan on keeping ours original. It is like stepping back in time!

Anyhow please try to make it. We would love to see your FC in person!

Public Service announcement:

If You use a chainsaw please buy and use chainsaw chaps. I did not and just got back from the hospital with a nasty wound to my knee. Had to rearrange vacation and it may affect us being able to attend the rally. I had always intended to buy chaps but have used chainsaws 30 plus year with no major incidents only close calls and minor stuff and thought it wouldn't happen to Me.. PLEASE BUY CHAPS, I just ordered mine a bit too late. Did I mention BUY AND USE CHAPS. Still have fair chance of making the rally all is not lost yet I would hate to miss this because I didn't spend $80.00 or less on a set of CHAPS.

Can I also mention that a helmet is a great investment. The ones with the built in ear protection and face sheild are really nice. You can find them at Lowe's in the chainsaw aisle (along with chaps, I might add).
Sorry, the nurse just had to chime in.
Hope you are feeling better soon!
