the external frame iss till there. it's an HEHR 1009 185 395 (i assume the 185 395 are dimensions? 18 1/2" 39 1/2"?) just an educated guess.

You're right on the educated guess for window sizes. I've retreived two different ones from a demolished '60 Overlander in Colorado. Both have found new homes but neither were the size you're looking for. I'm still trying to figure out options about the Barstow Overlander. I know what you mean about the POS in the yard.

Is winter getting to me?

I guess I've been couped inside to long and am suffering from cabin fever. Or maybe its one of those senior moment kind of things. Well here goes. What do you all think of doing the inside of the outer shell and then the inside of the inner shell with Rhino Lining? We saw a fellow who did the entire outside of his custom Tear Drop trainer with Rino Lining. Not only did it look really good but it made his trailer water tight. I understand that Rhino Lining can be applied with several variation in finished surface qualities.

Ok guys, Take your best shots!!!

but if you put it on the outside, you'd never have to poish it!

ha!

seriously, i would think that would be a messy process. i've had good luck with alcoa sealer. that, and since i replaced all the skins with new, and vulkemed the crap outta them, i doubt i'll have leaks when all's said and done. i'm down to 2. both on the end caps. this week, if the weather stays nice, i plan on pulling the front window, and re-sealing everything. the rain on mine seems to wick into the seams on the end-caps and run down behind the frame on the front window... then into the trailer. when i do the window, i'll alcoa seal the outside seams with a seringe and a needle (right now, i've only sealed the inside seams).

once all that's done, i plan on shooting a nice coat of undercoating on the bare rivets (inside shell) just for good measure. everything we're talking about is 10X more than airstream originally did, so we're all good!

Good Idea

[quote=NorCal Bambi] What do you all think of doing the inside of the outer shell and then the inside of the inner shell with Rhino Lining?

Good idea.
How much would it weigh? Other than how much will it cost, I always ask.
I see some SOB's have rubber roofs, sort of a membrane on top. They spray coatings on foundations too.
Could the spray include an insulator as well?

What an interesting idea. I had though about Rhino for my very UV damaged bathtub, although I have decided now on White-Cote.

My truck is great with it - this is the second truck that I have done but I am now sure that I want it on my airstream although it may have some utility. I just want to polish

Rhino forever,
Jennifer

Jordan, I'm not thru reading all of your thread yet, but I've got a couple questions. Please forgive me if you've already answered these.

What did you use as sealant between the wheel wells and the frame? Is that a Parrbond or Sikaflex product? In my '73, there was a type of gasket material there, but I know I'll never find it.

Where did you buy your fresh water tank? I need a new one as the old one has stuff growing in it.

I have a more complicated question concerning the rear frame area, but it will have to wait until later tonight. If I understand your description of the outriggers back there, they are like mine and inadeqate to the task. If you don't mind, I'll post a pic or two and we can compare notes.

Jim

The Slippery Slope

I have completed removing the interior from my '58. Tomorrow I start removing the lower interior skins in preparation for the body lift.

I've been amazed at how quickly I've been getting things done so far... with any luck I'll be done with the floor replacement and have the interior reinstalled by March

Thanks for all the great information in this thread!

no problem, jim. on the wheelwells, i just used vulkem. on my trailer, it does not have an inner fender. the skin on the outside is the fender wall. i've noticed on some larger trailers, there's a second fender in there. when i mounted my walls, i put a generous bead of vulkem on the tabs, then after it dried, i ran another bead on the inside as well. i also filled the gaps between the belly pan and the outriggers at both ends of the wheel well. i think it's sealed about as good as can be!

eBay. i've decided to change the location of it since i bought it, though. i was orriginally going to have it hanging down below the pan, but have since changed my mind, and will now be putting it under the bed. i hope the size i have will fit.

post away. the only problem i found with the additional outriggers i installed is it makes the rear belly pan look a little thicker behind the wheel well until it passes the outrigger. it's very negligable, but worth note. look really closely at the attached pic and you can seewhere it tapers down to the tail a little later than the original. like i said, you really have to look for it, but worth mentioning, none-the-less.

best of luck with it! like everything in life, sometimes what seems like the simplest project takes forever! on the other side of that coin, though, i replaced 3 panels in a day, even though i thought i'd be there all weekend.

the hard work is quite reewarding, though. you can't deny that.
