Gee I found this thread late!
If you've got the frig vent wall that is riveted up along the wall from behind the frig up to the roof vent, I could use it. Look forward to hearing from you.

I'll get together the information and PM you on it.
I'm wondering how hard it would be to cut it down to fit my 22ft. My bet is it wouldn't be hard at all. I have somebody that I know that says they are trying to get into some side work doing sewing. Supposedly they have a machine that will handle the fabric so as long as the material is there to use as a pattern is my only real concern. Sunbrella material is not to expensive.

Drop me a line on what your looking to get out of those parts including the Stove. Our princess may be just fine but I have not had a chance to test it.

Till has this coach now. Drop him a line and see if he as it.

I'm in a simular issue with our flue. I am looking at either using the current one as a templet and recreating or covering it in fiberglass or making one out of sheet aluminum. It might look neat out of some T2024 T3 Alcad but less work if I glass my cracked one. If your not comortable with the fiberglass hit a high end car stereo shop or a boat repair place and they could probably do it for you. www.westmarine.com would have the material you need if you want to give it a shot.

If yours is made of ABS plastic, fiberglass resin may not stick to it very well over the long haul.

Luckily, my flue was in good shape, but if it was not, I would have repaired it the same way I did my air conditioner shroud.

Fridge vent/flue/duct repair with fiberglass is not difficult and I am willing to give it a try over the long haul. I followed this thread: http://www.airforums.com/forum...rigerator+flue
with pretty good results.

And Tom that was a great job on the AC shroud. Pure artform that one.

Oh my....

Give me some time to sort out what's what.

I have a gentleman in Texas interested in the awning I think. I will try to get in touch with him again to make sure. I have no clue what shipping on an item 16 feet long will be. We will sort out the awning issues in time. I will work on a first come first serve baises.

The fridge duct is one of the primary reasons I picked up the Overlander, that and the black tank. It will not be up for sale.

Eric, I will shoot you an e-mail

I will have some glass for sale, maybe a couple of pieces. I will post parts here in the classified section when I'm ready to part with them. The plan is to use the trailer as is over the summer till I get my Ambassador frame repaired and the shell back on.

I too will be looking for parts, so trading will be on my mind.

Thanks for the reference, there's light at the end of the tunnel now and it's not a train!
The scoop was made for a frig size of 5.5cu.ft. I take that if the frig were replaced with a larger taller unit, then the scoop gets wacked off from the bottom so the new frig flue will fit under it for venting purposes. Anybody retro-fit for this situation?

Well my FUBAR stament will be eaten with some crow.

The Overlander is going back together. I have 10 foot of the back end from the Ambassador shell cut off and on the back patio waiting to be spliced in. (summer of '07)

Propane tanks updated and certified. New regulator.
All propane items work.
Most of the 12 volt items work. The front fan does not????
All 110 item work including AC!!!!
All but rear window work.
Water system minor leaks correted.
I have splced in a piece of the Ambassodor skin to patch the really bad piece just aft of the the street side bed room window. Have stiched a lot of the seams together with self taping screw. (Wally is rolling in his grave I bet.)

Camping next week end !!!!

I guess I will hy-jack this thread and post the progress of the rebuild.

The camping trip went well. I found out that 39 year old plastic is not flexible. I had a mystery leak in the gally. After we got to the campground it was a real pain to have a wet spot in the middle of the trailer. Well after looking around I noticed that the street side gally partition base was wet too. After looking a llitle closer I saw a large wood piece tucked in the corner. Popped out the three screws and there was the condinsate drain. The plastic was like uncooked pasta. It would snap with very little pressure. So a run to Farm & Fleet and the drain was back in business!!

I have built a bunk for my daughter on the street side. (Pictures later).

Tonight I dropped off one set of drapes at the dry cleaners. I figure I have a 50/50 chance of getting drapes back. Otherwise I expect a bag of shredded fabric. If it the cleaning works out I will do the rest of them.

I am now getting ready to build a "L" shape goucho in the front, like the 25/28 foot International's have currently. I have a fold out table for a mid 70's trailer that is larger than the original that I will use (I sold off the other one. ) I will try and get a picture or two up of all of this stuff for every one to see. I have two weeks to get the goucho built! So off to work....

OK, so I have Aluminum ADD in a bad way. The wife and I talked the whole thing in a big circle. Rebuild a original style goucho now. I ordered slides form Vintage Trailer Supply. WOW are they nice!!! I am using the plans from Vintage Airstream recources.

I had to start with modifying the table/shelf on the curb side to accomidate the larger table. It is going better than I expected. I had to move the back section 4 inches back for the larger table to be able to slide all the way in in storage position. I know y'all want to see photo's. Sorry, but work is taking presadent over photos.

Rat Stream

In the world of motorcycles that would be called a "Rat" which takes a person of unusually strong self-assurance to operate it. This person will rub the noses of prejudicial observers in the black water tanks of this world at will. I like your Airstream!! I am waiting for the First Annual Rat Rally!

Tedd, It looks worse in the photos than it did in real life. I can really see it coming together now. Once the donated parts from the Ambassador are spliced in it won't even be noticable... (except for the stitches and the two electrodes near the tongue)! LOL! "IT'S ALIVE..." Ed

Well Ed I can not for the life of me remember or find who told me about the light repair.
It goes something like this....
Dis-assamble the light to be repaired.
In the head (light part) drill a small hole all the way through the middle of the ball end.
Take a small diameter tension spring (the type with the coils tight together) that is about 3/4 the length of the stem of the light. Insert a small steel rod into the hole you drilled going through one end of the spring.
Using a piece of string or wire insert the spring into the stem. Pull the spring out the other end and insert another steel rod. A little epoxy at this point will keep the rod in place.

Make sure that the spring diameter is small enough to let the wires have some room to move. I hope to document this repair this winter.


Progress on the Overlander has slowed now that the goucho is finished. I am having problems getting the propain lamp to work though. I have tried a couple of different mantals, with no luck. Am I missing something here??
