Steve,

I'd be interested in the folks that made your frame. We're in Atlanta and looking to buy an older AS, please let me know if you think they are still an option.

Thanks,
Sean

Howdy,
The skin on the outside bottom of my TW is shot. The angle iron square under there is also shot. I plan on replacing it with stainless steel. This trailer was parked at a campground for years, and the water tank door was not locked. Kids put pinecones, etc. in there. It needs to be cleaned out. Can this be done from the outside, when I fix the underside? I can do all the welding, no matter what I find under there. I have the machine to do it right here. Just have to start tearing it apart, but want a little input from someone who has been in there.......better stop now, If I put all my problems in one post, I will never get my first rivet!

I have a '73 TW, and the skin on the bottom is shot. There is also a large squareof angle iron under there, about (guessing) 5 feet square. It is broken, one corner was almost dragging, but it was cought and supported by the propane line when I noticed it, on the way home once. I plan on replacing the large square with stainless steel. I also would like to clean out the potable water tank, as where my trailer was parked (when I bought it) the clean water door was not locked, and kids had poked pinecones, etc. in there. Is the water tank acessible from under the trailer, or will I have to take the floor up also?
Thanks..
Sid
