Introducing our "Full Monte" which we have named HVY MTL (Heavy Metal). We are Head bangers at heart and it is a little bit of a play on words for these iconic light weight trailers!
Trade Wind , but with the recent purchase of a "67 Overlander for parts and registration papers, I might call it a 25 ft Overtrader or Trade lander!
The frame on the original trailer ended up being so badly rusted that I decided to build a new frame, and had just started welding it up when I came across the Overlander which was pretty much toast considering the crushed roof from heavy snowfall. I needed a couple windows and the purchase of the trailer was less than what I could get the windows for! It was previously gutted but I was able to salvage almost all the windows and doors as well as the ribs etc. the main frame looks good ,and I will have some parts to sell when I am done !
Marine grade plywood ,Por 15 for the frame, extra supports for the roof air, all new Airstream metal for the interior, as well as all new appliances , holding tanks, axles and tires and wheels! I am well into the restoration (call it Hot Rodding), and am a little behind schedule, with the new frame and having to tear apart the parts trailer, but I have learned so much here at Airforums and can't wait to show off my finished product.
I am a journeyman RVTech and have been at current job for 3 months ,which just so happens to be an Airstream dealer. So yeah ,I work on them all week ,then get to work on my own eves. and weekends. How cool is that!
