Thanks Marcus, this trailer was neglected and was in very poor condition when I bought it, and it was exactly what I was looking for.

What Truck and Marcus said about the elevator bots. I think I read the other day that you are bolting the shell thru the new U-channel into the outriggers, right? That's pretty much how my 27 footer was put together. I think you'll be fine.

Had rear separation and the pictures show why. The frame was repaired and today added a 2" x 3" angle iron bolted to the floor and frame for my rear plate. And like the front will add as many solid rivets that I can, shell to angle iron............toastie

Looks really good, toastie. Back end of my frame looked exactly like yours and I added a steel plate back there. I was putting bolts in there this morning and I'll be riveting the plate in when I get a helper for the bucking bar. Really impressive how much they stiffen up when the fasteners start going in.

cheers,
steve

Finally "slow floor replacement" is done, floor is down permanently. Starting to sand the seams, and my question to the forum is:
"What is the best filler to use on the elevator bolts and seams?" Bolts where recessed about 1/8"..........thanks toastie

I'm going to coat the subfloor with epoxy, so I'll be using epoxy with a filler to level out all my holes and seams. Microballoons would be fine; I think I've got a container of West System 407 407 Low-Density Filler that'll work ok. It'll sand smooth very easily.

cheers,
steve

ok I really like your shower drain setup . . . that's what I would like to do, but I was under the impression that I must have a trap or I'll be smelling the contents of my grey tank AND I was led to believe that I need larger diameter drain line. Do you have "alternate" information? And, where did you get that shower drain w/the barbered fitting?
Thanks, MarkR

The shower drain comes with a stopper. The gray tank below is just for the shower and bathroom sink and is not part of the other gray water system, plus the shower drain is going to be approx 4" off the floor and
will built my own trap. The small bathroom sink will also have a trap. I bought my drain off ebay, its a SCANDVIK shower drain used on boats.........hope this helps..............toastie

Is the fitting at the end of the clear tube a straight-through barbed transition fitting or it a checkvalve?
