    Hi there, I am currently deployed overseas but have been in touch with a seller in Nashville regarding a 1975 31' International. I get back in a few weeks but I was hoping to find someone who knows what they are looking at to check it out. Not sure how this works exactly, please let me know if this is something you'd be willing to do. Thanks!

    My Name is John. Do you know how I might get some plans for a Clipper (1953 about) by Silver Streak? I want to redo the trailer to the frame. It seems very solid at this point. I will also need some stove parts and some other parts (furnace, sink has a hand operated pressuring pump right at sink, maybe some furnace parts). Thanks for your time. John

    hello again,
    is it still empty?
    did you already remove the original pipe frame?
    may have found one in Ohio for 6,000...
    are you looking for very much more?
    I have to ask because there is a beauty in NC...but the guy is NUTS!!!
    have more skill and desire to restore than cash...but like you know what you have...I know what i want...i want a weewind...for myself, not to flip to a european.
    any pics of where it stands now?

haven't been here in a while .
just a thought , do a lot of vintage work here and lately it seems a lot of folks are stripping skin from interior ? I don,t get it .
this manner of construction uses the air gap between the walls for insulation and works better that most of the sob"s , the wiring can be redone without pulling skin , the subfloor can be replaced without pulling the body ( there is a right and wrong way to do it )
the idea of pulling the interior and disposing...

got her gutted this weekend, at least most of it. rain prevented the removal of furnace and water heater,has to be done partially from out side as am saving the exterior for reinstall with the new appls.
the rear floor is rotted away as expected ! also the last crossmember is rusted in 1/2 at center and will need replaced. was planning on pulling the belly anyway so no big deal. found cool stuff while at it, lic. plates from ohio 1965 and 66 says housecar on them, how cool is that. the original...
