Proud new owner

Hi-
John here. Big news in my world!

On 1.5.15 we welcomed our third child into the world.

On 1.17.15 we purchased our first airstream. A 1960 LandYacht Safari.

I'm already in over my head, but I'm excited!Click image for larger version

Welcome. When the going gets tough with diaper changes, you have an aluminum man cave for a retreat....

Most of the newer water heaters use both. Hopefully, replacing this is on the list. There are people who use a household on demand water heater, which limits you to one or the other. We full time in our 31 ft Classic, and never have had an issue with no hot water from the stock Atwood six gal unit. Have fun, measure twice and cut once....

Thanks Tom. This one actually has two, the original and another in the bathroom closet. I'm having to undo a lot of "redo". Fun so far.

Removing the 1x 2 built ins hasn't been too tough, but the walls are holding firm. Any secrets? I want to keep them for templates.

I'm eager to get the floor up and check the chassis. I had to remove 3/4 ply and carpet to get down to the laminate level.

Is this stove of value to anyone? I have no idea if it works. I do know the right front burner made a comfortable home for mice.Click image for larger version
