How about keeping it a camper, with an open back porch? Put a porta potti in a closet. Maybe a bar and some stools. Call it a Tre Chic Hollywood Smoking Lounge. Your neighbors will be impressed, and your friends jealous.
I hear that they are going for big bucks.

It turns out that the Overlander is FUBAR. So it will be used as is over the summer as I repair the frame and floor of the Ambassador. Then the Overlanders interior and some of the exterior will go to complete the Ambassador to make my Ambassalander special.

Sorry, but to do it right is just too much for me and my wallet. That and I do not think it will ever look right after the rebuild.

I have a fridge from a 66 that I', going through. The awning is an A&E. The fabric looks worn at the mounting rail. I have a recipet that shows that it was installed in 1981.

I'll get together the information and PM you on it.

Till~~~

I'm a bit confused as to what you'r going to do with this, but best wishes to you! I have a 68 Overlander that we just got last Spring. I love it. Twin beds, back bath. If you are going to sort of "demolish" some of it, and part it out, let me know. I could use a few things for mine. If you want you can PM me. If 59 Toaster doesn't need the awning rails, let me know. I'd love to have an awning! What colors are inside? Bath, etc.? Thanks!

[QUOTE=59toaster]I have run across a person that has a 67 Overlander that was in marvelous condition till Ivan dropped a Oak tree on it.

Gee I found this thread late!
If you've got the frig vent wall that is riveted up along the wall from behind the frig up to the roof vent, I could use it. Look forward to hearing from you.

I'm wondering how hard it would be to cut it down to fit my 22ft. My bet is it wouldn't be hard at all. I have somebody that I know that says they are trying to get into some side work doing sewing. Supposedly they have a machine that will handle the fabric so as long as the material is there to use as a pattern is my only real concern. Sunbrella material is not to expensive.

Drop me a line on what your looking to get out of those parts including the Stove. Our princess may be just fine but I have not had a chance to test it.

Till has this coach now. Drop him a line and see if he as it.

I'm in a simular issue with our flue. I am looking at either using the current one as a templet and recreating or covering it in fiberglass or making one out of sheet aluminum. It might look neat out of some T2024 T3 Alcad but less work if I glass my cracked one. If your not comortable with the fiberglass hit a high end car stereo shop or a boat repair place and they could probably do it for you. www.westmarine.com would have the material you need if you want to give it a shot.

If yours is made of ABS plastic, fiberglass resin may not stick to it very well over the long haul.

Luckily, my flue was in good shape, but if it was not, I would have repaired it the same way I did my air conditioner shroud.

Fridge vent/flue/duct repair with fiberglass is not difficult and I am willing to give it a try over the long haul. I followed this thread: http://www.airforums.com/forum...rigerator+flue
with pretty good results.

And Tom that was a great job on the AC shroud. Pure artform that one.

Oh my....

Give me some time to sort out what's what.

I have a gentleman in Texas interested in the awning I think. I will try to get in touch with him again to make sure. I have no clue what shipping on an item 16 feet long will be. We will sort out the awning issues in time. I will work on a first come first serve baises.

The fridge duct is one of the primary reasons I picked up the Overlander, that and the black tank. It will not be up for sale.

Eric, I will shoot you an e-mail

I will have some glass for sale, maybe a couple of pieces. I will post parts here in the classified section when I'm ready to part with them. The plan is to use the trailer as is over the summer till I get my Ambassador frame repaired and the shell back on.

I too will be looking for parts, so trading will be on my mind.

Thanks for the reference, there's light at the end of the tunnel now and it's not a train!
The scoop was made for a frig size of 5.5cu.ft. I take that if the frig were replaced with a larger taller unit, then the scoop gets wacked off from the bottom so the new frig flue will fit under it for venting purposes. Anybody retro-fit for this situation?
Ed

Well my FUBAR stament will be eaten with some crow.

The Overlander is going back together. I have 10 foot of the back end from the Ambassador shell cut off and on the back patio waiting to be spliced in. (summer of '07)

Propane tanks updated and certified. New regulator.
All propane items work.
Most of the 12 volt items work. The front fan does not????
All 110 item work including AC!!!!
All but rear window work.
Water system minor leaks correted.
I have splced in a piece of the Ambassodor skin to patch the really bad piece just aft of the the street side bed room window. Have stiched a lot of the seams together with self taping screw. (Wally is rolling in his grave I bet.)

Camping next week end !!!!

I guess I will hy-jack this thread and post the progress of the rebuild.
