Platform Bed... With Added Gray Water Tank
Platform Bed... With Added Gray Water Tank
Description Another view of the bed without the top platform. The bulkhead standing to the left gets laminated next. Very happy with the way the aluminum panels turned out.

Description I love rounded corners. Built here to accommodate a full size bed. The top platform is not on in this picture, but overhangs the front by about 8 inches. I used high gloss laminates and I wanted air/heat to get under to the tanks so I fabricated the front 4 panels with cool aluminum screening. The main purpose was to lighten the weight of the plywood with the cutouts, but serves as ventilation as well. Under the platform will be hanging bins in the grid for additional storage. The entire support grid can be easily unscrewed in the event I ever have to remove the tank. I have the platform done as well, but not shown here installed. IKEA 4-3/4" mattress which I have to go on top. Lightweight and comfortable, as I have slept on it many times.

Platform Bed... With Added Gray Water Tank
Description Too hot in Tampa to work outside, and the big stuff is already done, so I thought I would do some fun stuff inside. A few months ago I installed a 50 Gallon gray tank I picked up at a sale. It is plumbed between the kitchen sink and the original gray tank. I put a Valterra valve on the tank so I can keep the two tanks separate. When ready to dump, I drain the main tank, then the aux. tank. I also have it configured to I can pump the original tank back up in to the large tank for added showering boondocking capacity. Today I got around to building the platform bed around it.

Critter Prevention - Well, Sort Of..
Critter Prevention - Well, Sort Of..
Description The cutouts for the plumbing, tanks, valves, etc, were allowing critters in to the body of the trailer or at least a good place for them to hide. So, I made gaskets out of shower pan liner (very tough stuff and lasts nearly forever) and fitted them around the valves and such to create a seal from the tank areas below. I cut 1/2" vinyl strips from some old horizontal blinds and screwed them down to hold the gaskets in place. I can easily remove them if necessary. It worked out pretty well. It won't stop chewing critters, but lizards and bugs aren't getting through!

77 Sovereign... Under Construction
Description Finally found some time to work on it. In the last few weeks I got on all the lower belt molding, fabricated some covers where the A-frame enters the body, sealed and caulked all the belt moldings, and painted most of the lower wrap. I ran out of paint and it was threatening rain. Soon.

New Atwood 6 Gallon Gas/electric Water Heater
New Atwood 6 Gallon Gas/electric Water Heater
Description Pretty easy installation to get it in the hole. It isn't hooked up yet. Still have a ways to go to be ready for that. I bought it off Amazon for a good price, but wasn't really happy with the shipping condition. Flanges were all bent when it arrived because it was just slipped in to a flimsy cardboard box. No padding whatsoever. The exhaust sheet metal was all twisted, but not from the shipping. From the manufacturing. I had to bend all that back in to shape to get the stainless door I had to fit properly. Still, not too difficult. Nothing EVER goes easy when rebuilding an Airstream.... Now I can put the lower wrap moldings on. Slowly but surely!

Furrion 30 Amp Outlet And Shurflo Water Fill.
Furrion 30 Amp Outlet And Shurflo Water Fill.
Description I decided while I was re-engineering the entire rear end of my trailer, that I would eliminate the cord in the rear compartment and go with a new Furrion 30 amp outlet. I bought a 30' twist lock right angle cord to go with it. It really worked out nicely. All installed and tested. In addition, I put in a Shurflo water fill, with built in pressure regulator and check valve. Might as well do it right! Next comes the water heater and I can finish putting my interior skins on in the bathroom area.

Rear Compartment - Black And Grey Tanks
Rear Compartment - Black And Grey Tanks
Description Finally got around to re-assembling the rear of the Sov. I decided to use a second Tee instead of an elbow off the grey so I could have a clean-out. The little hole in the aluminum plate is so I can run plumbing through there that I will attach in to the side of the small PVC section. Inside the trailer, that will be hooked to an extra 12v water pump I have. With this configuration, I can pump the 16 gallons of grey in to a 50 gallon aux. grey tank I will be installing under the bed. This way I will have roughly 70 gallon grey capacity. The 50 gallon grey under the bed will be plumbed to the kitchen sink, and will have a valve that will dump through to the factory grey. With a secure termination cap on the exit plumbing, I can open the small gray tank valve, turn on the pump, and move the grey water in to the big tank. I will of course test and re-test everything before it is all buttoned up. Next the bumper and hinged cover go on.
