Based on the VIN, I would say that Silver Threads is correct.

Now I can start!

Now that the year is cleared up, I can start! lol

I actually worked on it over the weekend. And unfortunately found a couple soft spots (small ones). One up front and one in same spot in the rear. I poked and prodded and couldn't find anything else.

Now reading all the floor repair threads. Photos coming as I progress.

Proposed Layout

Can y'all take a look at this and let me know if you see anything that jumps out and says ... "you can't do that" ??

First, the AS will be parked year' round and will have power and sewer hookups.

I will have to haul water up as needed. I am thinking about having a 55 gallon f/w tank elevated outside. Will drain after each trip and refill when I come back.

Site has showers, so am not putting one in the remodel (yet, maybe later).

Anything wrong with this proposed layout?

Thanks.

Curious??? because it has the curved windows that did not start until '66. Maybe you have some sort of late '65 transitional trailer.

I don't think you will be able to put the toilet on top of the wheel well.

Sorry, I misinterpreted your drawing. Very interesting re-work of the interior.

Here is one of my favorite A/S interior layouts. This particular plan is shorter than yours, but the very similar 26' model of the same era included a toilet and sink.

Here is the plan with the bath included. It's from a '50 24 footer.

Very efficient arrangement of the utilities. I'm curious why you orient the bed as you did?

I would also suggest to at some point before you go ahead do an analysis of the weight distribution (if you have not already)

Very nice layout!

I want you to know that I too had hoped to not replace the floor... or repair the frame, or remove the belly pan, or release the shell form the c channel... I too had just wanted to do the cosmetic stuff... After a few month, I can safely say... get over it pal. Dive in and get ready to do all those things. They all leak, which means they all have rotten floors, which means they all have moldy insulation, which means they all have rust damage to the frame, which means it is always more work than we ever imagine. The bright side is the work is always a challenge, which for me, means it is always fun. A few hundred little bites and you will have it all done. Good luck and congrates on your 64, 65, 67, 68, 69 Overlander
