    Colin,

    Hope all is going well for you. I have a AS related question and a non-AS question for you if you have time. I need to figure out a replacement for my joules windows. I love them, but I had to seal the crap out of them to get them to stop being a point of entry for water. I appreciate the look but im over it. The window frame is where I scratch my head as to replacing with 2 lexan panels. The other is I bought a new 24' vnose trailer that is car hauler w extra height and 5200 torsion axles to turn into my toy hauler. The issue is the dam thing sit SO LOW. What options do I have to get a much better ground clearance on this trailer? Lift kit, scratch the nearly new axles on the nearly new (1500 miles ish).

    Thank you!
    Dan

    Hello Colin!
    We just popped the top of my 64 overlander 23 footer. Have no clue what im doing but having fun.....you know what I mean. I am asking you for info on white and gray tanks. The trailer hasn't been cleaned or support welded yet. So im looking for tanks, fittings, straps and some tidbits of knowledge.

    Colin,
    is it possible to prepare a vintage airstream for a Canadian winter? best research i can find suggests foil bubblewrap and batt, or sprayfoam insulation are best but still inadequate, and seems condensation cant be fixed. could u retrofit with an air exchanger? and assuming constant power (hardwired to the elect grid) there are conflicting experiences re how best to heat. i would be greatful for any current general words of wisdom about insulation,/ vintage retrofits for cold winters.
    thanks in advance.

    Colin, I am not impressed by your lack of customer service. I received the axle for our tradewind and there are many differences between the two which I need to speak with you about. Call me at 405 7621449

    Thank you so much Colin for your kind advice! I guess someone has to be the forum poster woman on how to make things difficult. May as well be me. Thank you for your tolerance! Wishing you a prosperous and fabulous 2015! Happy New Year!
