I'm glad to hear your moving along on getting things fixed, but who have you gotten to do the driving?

How are your travelin' plans coming?

Funny man . Travel plan is to travel. The plan is vague since I haven't secured a contract for the fall yet. Luckily, since I am full timing and a prone to boondocking, I can get by really cheap when I travel. Plus, because of the nature of the work I do and with the internet I can keep on top of job opportunities from anywhere. So, I am just as well off waiting things out in the mountains as anywhere else. I suspect my summer will focus mainly on New Mexico and Colorado but like I said, its all up in the air at the moment.

Thanks for the good information. I have recently discovered I have some floor rot and back-end separation. My brother-in-law is doing a frame off restoration on his second 59 flying cloud, but I do not want to do a total gut and rebuild for some rot in the bathroom.
I’m also considering adding a grey tank while I’m in there. Andy can the ‘75 aft bath tanks(grey and black) fit in a ’70?

Some crossmembers may have to be rearranged, and or added, in order to have adequate space, and additional support.

Need new electric connection

The electrical connection box was located on the ugly box. I will need to get a new connector I guess, anyone have a good source for these?

She is back!

After a week and a half in the airstream hospital, I got my Trade Wind back yesterday afternoon The work looks great and the sag is sure enough gone. The rivets from the attachment of the ugly box created a problem, ultimately the holes were covered by a pair of large patches. If you didn't know what an airstream is supposed to look like from the back, you wouldn't know the patches don't go there. It is a relief to have the repair done and it is a big step toward being ready to hit the road in a couple weeks.

Be happy to. The repair guy is going to send some of how the work progressed but I do not have them as of yet.
