Curious also how many watts the a/c pulls, as well as the refrigerator? It's a lot of electrical work to get a 30 amp receptacle to near the trailer.

Thanks
Awe man...I'm jealous. I wish I had my manual, original everything but that...

I believe you will find your refrig. & stove vent covers to be fiberglass (plastic). I know the ones on my '69 are. The one for the stove is very different from those used on more recent models, in that newer ones are alum. and have a flap that opens when the range hood fan is turned on. If your's is like the one on my trailer, it appears as a horseshoe shape with the flap completely covered beneath it. The cover is open on the bottom side. The fiberglass refrig. vent cover looks much like those on newer Airstreams but, in measuring it I found it to be smaller in length than the newer aluminum version. I have heard of people cutting an alum. one down to fit and that maybe what you'll have to do. I am not aware of any reproductions being made of these covers, but maybe someone else has and will let us know. Good luck with your new project and keep us all posted on you progress.

I also would like to buy one or two original light switch knobs. They are round plastic and are marked: WEMAC . Also need an original control panel clock, or just the hour hand for the clock. Thanks!

Hey Eric111, I did a little research and found some vent covers that may work for you. Check-out Vintage Trailer Supply website. Looks correct if yours are originals.

1969 Overland

Thanks very much. Say, is there some sort of aluminum cap/cover for the a/c unit? Even if while it is not being used? The original a/c and a/c cover on mine look like a square hole was just punched up through the roof and this is not very 'finished' looking.

Also wondering if there is a power jack that is aluminum or stainless ?

… now that I looked at photos online, I think I'm missing the original shroud for the air conditioner, if anyone has one.

I have one, but shipping may be a bit of a let down.

I have a set of 4 hubcaps off my '72 Trade Wind. Don't know if you are looking for something in particular, but can send you photos. PM me, if you want to know more.

Is the original AC an Armstrong TAC-110?

I will check tomorrow and let you know. Do you sell an a/c unit that does not go on the roof? Even one with the compressor on the ground outside, for a trailer that is stationary?

Hi --- just checked and yes, the A/c unit is an Armstrong. It is marked : TAC-110-1;
Series DA9; Serial 48668 . I've heard that there is a unit sold that sits on the tongue of the trailer when it is parked, with a hose to put inside. This sounds ideal, although I don't know how much work is involved with patching the open hole in the roof where the A/c was.
