63 Globetrotter

Hi fellow Globetrotter owners,
Itís been an exciting summer that started with selling our Ď49 Trailwind to a fantastic couple in Texas. They will be doing a full shell restoration to give it the love we didnít have the time or finances to do ourselves. The very week it sold we purchased a 63 Globetrotter for the same amount we sold the 49 for. Managing two sales and transport in one week was pretty exhausting but all the details came together in the end. Phew!?!
So, the 63 is pretty much all original and has the normal things that need attention. We replaced the flooring, all the exterior lighting, and a few other odds and ends with a long list of projects to keep us busy over the winter.
Iím attaching a series of pics from the previous owner as well as a few from our maiden trip a few weeks ago.
Iíd be more the grateful to connect with as many of you as possible to gain more knowledge about this trailer. Especially as we dive into the plumbing.
Thanks again community for supporting this incredible hobby of ours.
Ben, Lisa, and Silas.

How much original plumbing do you have i.e. water pump , dump valve , etc . If it's original you will not have a gray water tank.
