Hope's Log: Continuing on the new nautical bathroom - October, 2015

After surviving another HOT Phoenix Summer, I have finally been able to work inside of Hope again!

Over the course of the last 4 weekends, I have designed and installed the custom aluminum shower stall, teak counter top, sink, faucet, hot & cold water lines, gray & black water drainage plumbing, waste valve and the wainscot walls.


More pictures to follow...

Hope's Log: Worst part of the bathroom build - October, 2015

I hate ABS and PVC plumbing, but at least it is finally done! I really like the hot and cold PEX with Shark Bite Connectors. They are a bit pricey, but much better than sweating copper pipes!

Looking forward to buying the Atwood hot water heater and testing all the connections...

Hope's Log: Taking her maiden voyage - Columbus Day Weekend

I promised a friend nearly a year ago that our families would meet at Mather Campground at the south rim of the Grand Canyon regardless of whether or not Hope's interior was finished.

This first rendezvous turned out to be with an "Aluminum Tent" without a propane heater, so I was a little concerned when I learned that northern Arizona already had below freezing temps at night with Flagstaff getting snow on Mt. Humphreys and the Grand Canyon recording 27 degrees two weeks earlier.

Regardless, I was eager to test Hope's new axles, tires, electric brakes, Reese anti-sway, weight distribution system and Tekonsha brake controller. Our Airstream travelled the 400 mile round-trip perfectly with speeds as high as 85 miles per hour (Most of Arizona's highway speed limits are 75 mph, so 85 on occasion was not too surprising when the situation called for me to speed up).

The campground was great, the weather just warm enough at night to stay comfortable without a propane heater (41 outside, 65 inside) and the time with our friends was very memorable. My wife and children look forward to the next trip, especially if I finish the bunks, so they don't have to sleep on air mattresses on the floor!

Wow! You have done some really impressive work. We're just starting the renovation on our recently purchased '71 Sovereign. Thanks for the inspiration. Love the photos from your Columbus Day weekend trip, especially the trailer at sunset.

Super cool door. " Hope" you don't mind if I steal that idea someday?
My 71 Caravel full Monty continues to progress. Work just keeps interrupting.

Still custom building the bathroom doors and walls. Bending aluminum for the door frame is a very slow process, but it is coming along nicely...Click image for larger version
