Well, I just purchased the tow vehicle for the 1965
Overlander. Now, when I get a chance to retrieve the trailer (half a country away), it is going directly to the shop for an AC installation and other fixer-uppers. I think the shop is a good shop--but being a novice, I could be completely taken advantage of and probably not even know it
. Now, the questions. The previous owner had the black water tank removed (reason-unknown), so this will need to be done. Being a newbie, I know nothing about black water tanks (other than the stink factor!). should i just have the repair shop purchase one for the install or should I shop around? What am I talking about in terms of price for the tank itself? Second question, the 65 comes with the original Bowen 9 gallon water heater. Seller indicated that the water heater did work upon a "heat test", but that he would recommend replacing the pilot assembly. Is this reasonable or should the water heater be repalced for safety reasons. What brand is recommended, will I be able to find a heater with a 9 gallon capacity, what is a reasonable cost for a replacement water heater (if necessary)?
