I recently purchased a 1989 34' excella. In reasonably good shape. The previous owner had it setup for rv park only. Which means upon investigation , underneath the false bottom of the closet, I found the former lines cut with the new lines nowhere to be found. He must have run them from the water inlet under the sink around under the floor up by the kitchen sink. The fresh water tank has been bypassed completely. My problem is 2 fold. 1. which old stub goes to the fresh water tank? 2. Even if I...

'69 Overlander Int'l Shell off

Posted 06-11-2020 at 10:05 AM by TCOverlander

Purchased our first AS in June of '19. Restoration of this 1969 Overlander International, "D" was begun by the previous owner. Basically, the interior furniture was removed and some replacement pieces and parts were bought.

After negotiating with the seller we discovered...
