Well here goes. My name is Dave and the wife's is Penny. We live in northen Ca and have 2 trailers a 23' and a 31' both are 1970. We did not start out to do 2 but it just happened. The 23 we bought from the first owner who towed it alot but took real good care of it. We just do a little maintance and use it. The 31 we got to do a custom deal to travel the states now that we are retired. The work is going good. I have learned so much from all of you people here that I can't say enough about how great this site is. Thanks!!! I am going to the frame and starting up. I will post pics as I get all dialed in on how this all works. Thanks again for all the info. Dave

Dave and Penny, Welcome to THE place for rabid A/S people. We all here suffer from Aluminitis so when the going gets tough and you find you have that metallic taste in your mouth...Remember it is really from all the drilling to remove the rivets or Aluminum fillings in your teeth! LOL, Ed
