1962 Safari Renovation

The time has come for us to to a full shell off - axle up renovation on our trailer. We have had this trailer since 1996 and have put many thousands of miles on it! And have so many memories! We have purchased a new TT so now we can renovate our Safari while still enjoying camping. There is no way we could part with our Silverark!

We have redone the interior several times. First time was a gut and redo for use with our young children. Second time was for use after the kids were gone. Third time was to make it nice for the wife an I. This time, 4th, will be to redo the frame, axle, subfloor, interior panels, belly pan, add modern electrical, plumbing, and put a bathroom back in. Those are just the highlights.
Completed the interior removal this weekend and looking forward to what we hope will be an 18 month project.

I've been following and reviewing several renovation projects on this site and have gained an immense amount of knowledge and ideas.

When I get stuck on something, and I'm know I will, I'll look to this group for information and suggestions. So thank you in advance!

Sounds like a lot of fun. By now you should be plenty familiar with your Safari and know exactly how you want the final product to look and function. Good luck moving forward and be sure and post your progress. Take care and be safe.
