Go with what you are comfortable with, I am more comfortabe with copper, but mine is all pex and it is working great. The 74 was all copper sweat fittings and I had no problems with it either. They are both good systems.

pex vs copper

Kathy,
Had the same issue on my 68 Caravel. Really thought way too much about it, but that's the way I do things.

I used pex with push fittings. (Sharkbite is one type) I haven't tested yet, as the low is 20 degrees this week. Pex is cheap. Push fittings are expensive compared to clamp fittings + tool.

Ultimately I want to use the thing, so I went for speed (pex/push fittings) and low skill. Pex and clamp fittings are speed and maybe a little more skill, and then copper is for plumbers.

By the way, you sound like the person who called me in Alabama about my 64 Safari...in grad school and all. Glad you found one!
Ken

I just yanked the plumbing from my 73 20' argosy. The only tricky part is the kitchen sink. The bath, lav and toilet all run from the back closet behind the plastic panels. The kitchen runs around the shower pan and I had to remove the shower to replace. I'm going w/ Pex. If you remove the bathroom sink and panel behind the toilet and shower, it's easy to figure out. I will have some pics if you are interested.
