The Can Can Can

Hi I'm new here. I am in the middle of fixing up a 22 foot Safari. I've named it The Can Can. I'm by no means new to RVing. My SOB is now worn out and almost not worth fixing. Many of its parts will be used to fix up The Can Can.
I've spun up a blog of my progress over at rivetpunk.com.
Many will not love me I fear, as I didn't keep my old trailer original. That has pluses though , as I get to plan what I want.
The old Safari really needed a frame up rebuild of the interior though.

I just posted my first question in refrigerator forum. Happy Travels.

Your trailer; your choice to keep it original or not.
If it works for you and you enjoy it. Go for it.

Having more than a passing interest in Street Rods, I have learned to modify as needed to make whatever you own as what you want in the interest of safety and ease of parts availability. Only in the case of Something being very rare would this not be acceptable.

One might not want to cut up a Duesenburg Dual Cowl Parade Phaeton.

Love love love that you are going to do a steampunk decor, and love the playlist too. We will be checking out the blog frequently to see how you are getting along. So far so good, and more power to ya!
