Is this crazy

We have found a 1965 Overlander near our house which we are interested in BUT the interior has been removed and discarded. I can build furniture so that is not the problem what is working me is that the fiberglass bathroom is gone. Any ideas on how to build a shower tub with out the original to go by????????

The price is right and this would be the trailer my wife and I escape the rat race so this needs to be something we can live in full-time.

Let me know what you think

Go for it.!You could find a bath from another renovation project just watch the classifieds. We owned a 65 Overlander and found it to be the perfect size. We loved ours good luck.

Go for it. A good cabinet maker can probably make a crazy nice shower for you out of corian counter top material. Or a metal smith could fab something out is stainless. Both won't be cheap, but doable/been done before.
This will be a multi year project, as long as you know that going in.
Mid 60's may have aluminum wiring. That could be addressed during a full renovstion.

For interesting ideas for the shower check out some of the "tiny house" blogs and web sites. There are some very creative people involved in that industry.

Look in any SOB catalog (PPL comes to mind) and you will find a myriad of shower-stalls ready-for-installation. Mating curtains/doors and hardware are all right there. Why re-invent the wheel?

Thanks but no Thanks

When we hooked up to the trailer one axle was no longer connected to the trailer............ So we passed on this trailer but think we have found another that will work even better. Thanks for all of your support
