The organizing team is excited that Lew Farber (you all know him as Lewster on the forums) will be presenting at the Restoration Rally - As many of you know he is an incredible resource and will be doing a seminar on solar and other electrical topics.

Lew is a mechanical engineer and owns of Master Tech RV. We thank Lew for joining us in making this an incredible learning experience.

Anybody attending who has a vintage parts trailer? Specifically looking for a 12' awning rail and a Hehr standard rear window for my unit. Like trying to find hens teeth!

The issue with the rail wasnt so much the availability but the possibility of getting here in one unbent length. My history with big brown isnt that great. Thankfully Lewster offered to deliver one to the rally for me.
thanks for the responses. Anybody got an available window?
BTW Robin, you still need to let me know about that little window.

If anyone else needs awning rail, I have 8-20' pieces in my storage area and will be glad to cut it to any length you need and bring it to the rally.

I wonder if a separate thread listing all the pre-owned parts for sale/giveaway that will be available at the rally?

Hey, Lynn. That's a great idea. I have some items I don't need & want to find a good home for. Would love to know if I should haul them to the rally.

I just installed an awning rail with 20 Olympic rivets. Is there anyone that's attending the FCU Resto-rally that has a "rivet shaver" that I could borrow? Maybe we could strike a deal with some swap meet items I'm bringing.

Thanks, Dan

Luke has my rivet shaver. I'll try to remind him to bing it when I see him tomorrow--he's helping me put new axles on the Sovereign.
