Safari Dinette

Hello JD,
For our dinette I plan to utilize the existing cushions for the back and botton seat. I plan to cut them down to 30" long and my wife will then recover them. They are in excellent shape so we plan to use the foam. The base or box for each seat will be 22.5" from left to right and 30" from front to back. The seat bottoms will hinge for storage. I will use a 19" cushion for the back with another 19" cushion for the seat. The cushions are 3.5" thick. That adds up to the 22.5" dimension. The table will be 33" wide by 25" deep. It will hinge under the front window and can be removed to become the bottom center section for the bed. The bed length will become 76". Plenty room for grandkids. I will use the piano hinge from the old table as well as the fold down leg. I plan to use 3/4" birch plywood trimmed with maple for the areas that need strength and 1/4" for end panels. The table will be built also out of 3/4" with maple edging. The reason I am using maple is that I have a good supply on hand in my shop.
I plan to center the unit in front under the window and will probably build storage cabinets behind each seat.
Hope this is a little help for you. It ain't rocket science. Just two boxes with high back and foam cushions. You might look at web sites from other manufacturers for ideas.
Good Luck
Dan

Safari beds

Hi Scotti,
I have a '71 Safari which has a double bed configuration in the midsection bedroom. Couch in front. The previous owner took out the closet and dresser which was across from the bed. I, too, am seeking pictures so I know how to get a closet and dresser built back in. I was referred to a source of service manuals which susposedly would show the layout. It's a woman in Ohio who sells them. I think she listed a '70 service manual. (they're expensive).If you want, I'll rumage through my papers and find her address. Or maybe someone on this website will come up with it quicker. Meanwhile, let's share information.
Jeanne

Trailer tires

Steve,
I am picking up four new Carlisle tries for our 71 Safari this week. They are load range D and should be more than ample for our 23 foot trailer. Goodyear Marathons are probably better. However, the Carlsiles are less than half the price through a friend who has a friend that's a dealer. There are several web sites for Carlisle tires as well as others. See www.trailerworld.com.

Anyone know if the black tanks on 1966's need to be removed from the top or can it be lowered from the bottom? Thanks John

The black tank can only be removed by going under the trailer, pulling the belly pan, and the removing the sheet metal box that holds it up under the floor. Unless your tear everything out from above, including the fiberglass tub surround, the toilet and the plywood floor, then you can get at it from the inside. But that's probably not the recommended route. Go from underneath.
