Rear access panel and doors.

TurkeyRun,

The idea of getting rid of the rear access door is intriguing. The benefits are huge, I will have to decide where to put the fresh water valves that were planned for that location.

I am missing one door, the access door to the refrigerator, but since I am upgrading to a 12v fridge that door is going away anyway.

Since you are eliminating things, think about not replacing those "fresh water valves". Airstream has installed "low point drain valves" for years. I have found them to be quite ineffective in draining the system. I like to use compressed to blow the water out of the system, and then pump RV antifreeze to every faucet and drain trap. But that is just me.

The black tank in you 67 looks a lot better than the one in my 66. The bath was upgraded in 67 and was much better than the "sink over tub with hidden toilet" they used in 66.

Winterizing

David,

I will not be getting rid of the "Fresh Water Valves", but they might get relocated.

Winterizing is not the 1st thought that comes to my head (We live in Tucson).

The plumbing lines will be Pex, which can withstand freezing quite well. Maybe not 20 below. And if necessary, anti-freeze.

Okay, understand. I don't use them but other people certainly do. And certainly true, you folk don't get a lot of freezing temps. I winterize in October and get ready to travel in May. A long winter here in Colorado. We had a nice snow storm last night. No grilling today.
