Goucho Slides Website

My goucho is similar to your 59 goucho. The back ends of the slides on mine are attached to plywood that surrounds the water tank. I intend to make slides similiar to the ones found on this website.

The 64 Globetrotter looks like a good solution. I can't tell from the pictures, but it looks like the base that the slides bear on is solid, not like the face frame construction used under my gaucho. Just be sure you don't have a concentrated load with no way for the load to get transmitted to the floor, or it will crack.

The slides on mine (still available, by the way) were in good condition. I did shorten them and do a few other modifications in order to squeeze the 28 gallon tank into the space where the original aluminum tank was.
