Fantastic Job

Beautiful job...I have the same '65 Safari and am in process of renovating. Won't be down to the bone like you did and I am doing it over the course of at least two years.

Year 1 is a new toilet, converter, battery and water heater. Can you please tell me which toilet, converter, battery and water heater you used in your silver palace?

Any help is much appreciated. The man who sold me the trailer is doing the work on it.

Thanks again for your inspiration. I like the yellow color!

This is outstanding... I also have a 1965 Safari, nothing like that. Very impressive. I love the paint scheme. I have welders working on my broken frame as I write this. Then I will be putting everything back in and hopefully on the road this summer. I might be asking you questions, if you don't mine. What the heck, question for you, why did you decide to use not complete sheets of plywood? Maybe I am wrong, looks like yours is configured differently then mine. What trips you have plan for the new / old camper?

Thanks for sharing this.

Robert

Question 2

Hello again... I see you removed the original toilet, but I can see what you did behind the new one. How did you configure that? Do you still have use of the back panel?

Thanks again,

-robert
