If you have to grind the shaft off to get the knob off, consider having it put back on with a gas torch and brass rod. An alternative may be TIG with silicone bronze. I'd check with your welder first for his thoughts.

Here is all the junk I have.

I've got a magazine rack

This is a pic before I cleaned it up, but now it looks shiny and new, and I'm not going to reinstall it in my refurb. If you PM me with your address I'll send it to you, no charge. Happy to know it's going to go in such a cool trailer.

A pal sold a race car...
$2000, car and spare parts. $3000 for just the car.

$100 for each part but if you take it all, it's free.

PM me an address.

I like your reasoning. I would think Scott does too.

We received more rain in the last 24 hours than weíve had combined since May. I knew Iíd have some leaks around the door since itís not finished up yet but found a few small leaks that I took care of today. Mostly missing or loose rivets. Hereís one in the end cap I took down today.

With all the aluminum rot I found from moisture I decided I didnít want fiberglass in the walls so I went with the foil bubble insulation. 3 layers on the ceiling 2 on the walls. I had a space heater going this morning to take the edge off and

All the wire except the water pump and water heater (which run down below) have been roughed in.

This afternoon Iíll rivet in the rear drip cap then can insulate the rear end cap. Itís in great shape compared to what I dealt with up front.

Now I need to order motors for the roof vents. Both are 110 but I want to run 12 volt so we can run them if need be without hookups.

Anybody know a good source?

Scott, we found 12v motors at etrailer.com. They had a VentLine
BVD0128-00 12v that I needed for the sidewall kitchen vent. Donít remember what the CFM was, but felt it was more than adequate. Their motors are interchangeable for roof vents. We also purchased the fan blades that fit their motor shaft. Good luck, Bubba

Looked at that, do you have to use the plastic fan blade? Since I'll have the skylights cut those fan blades are front and center. Inland RV has one on their site but once again the shaft size is wrong and they sell a plastic fan blade.

You may not like what my solution was but take a look at post #119. They also have a 2 speed in the same configuration. This has a different noise but with a reversible fan it makes it very comfortable inside.

FOUND!! Wally Byam's 55 Cruiser - 1956 European Caravan trailer

Huston we have a problem. I pulled apart the front inside cap to start making copies and realized 3 bad panels are compound curved. Anyone with English wheel chops want to be hired out to make me replacements? They are shippable.Click image for larger version

I do have some 63 exterior end caps I can cut them out of but I had hoped to save those in case our 63 Around the World Caravan trailer had problems down the road
