Just keeps looking better! Have you made the maiden voyage yet?
It must be time to start the next one! I keep waiting for the picture with the mountains in the background.
Thanks for the great thread and all the info,
Doug

Thanks Doug, no maiden voyage yet, still have lots of work, however, we do have a planned finish date of May 16th, 2012, and that maiden voyage will be to Camp Dearborn in Milford, MI, for the annually “TIN CAN TOURIST” outing. We still have the 65 Caravel for our camping and fun. And yes, we are always looking for another project, do you have any “HOLIDAY HOUSE” trailers around you. A picture of our 65 Caravel................

Is this what you are looking for, 1960 Holiday House. I have not seen one of those, very nice trailer. I am always looking also, I have passed on a few very interesting trailers over the last couple years, I promised my wife I wouldn't get any more till I finished the cruiser.

Thanks Toastie. I am just finishing up the renovation of my '57 bubble. I haven't documented progress like you have, but I'll post plenty of photos when it's all together. I have the same cabinets as you. Looks so sharp.

Not wanting to cut any holes on the side of trailer decided to go only with 12v and electric for the fridge . Will run a 12v fan with switch for cooling, life expectancy for the fan is 50,000 hour. Was surprise the amount of air the little fan put out.

Toastie, we call those "muffin" fans at work. They rarely fail. We have hundreds of these installed in working equipment that have never shut off since the mid-1990's. All just sitting there chuggin' away.

Toastie,
Can you tell me where you bought the fan? And what model/part number is it?
I've been on websites where it seems they have 1,000's of slightly different kinds of these fans and I can't seem to narrow it down to one.
Thanks,
MarkR

If you are not cutting any holes for the fridge, then where does the fan exhaust to? And do you have a intake for the fan to draw air from?

Hey Toastie, I'm trying a similar approach and was wondering whether you were using a collar or similar between the belly pan and the floor? I'm just starting on my air con installation which also goes through the floor.

What do you mean by "collar" are you referring to the AC..........toastie
