    I think it's worth maybe making a down and dirty mold with a dry cleaner bag and about 3 cans of expanding foam of just the shower part of it. I agree it would be probably more involved and it would probably cost $1000 each if it were a very small run, but it is a really elegant simple solution, especially if one had a custom black tank fabbed at a rotomolding shop.

    decided to do the shell off on my '68 Caravel, because I had some sag along the edges in my outriggers. I took my shower pan out this past saturday and it's in nearly perfect shape. I know you think this is the best wet bath arrangement that AS came up with. Do you think there would be an interest in making a plug of this, and where would you post this on the forum. I've got a really good corvette fiberglass shop nearby that is reasonable, but I haven't inquired what the plug would cost. I've got a '67 Safari that I'll be doing after this one, and I like the shower a little better than the mini-tub, but it's in pretty nice shape also.

    Sorry I missed this inquiry, I don't often find profile posts. It would be a lot of work to replicate the whole thing. It would fit 1968 and older. The above floor tank is small, so without the hump over the tank, and perhaps width expandable so it fits 1969-up. It's a valiant thought.

    Al- it would be helpful. I need to know how the pieces go back together and which rivets that I drilled out hold the "F" channnel that the bulkheads fit into. thanks,

First order of business was to assess what was there and what was soon to go. There was Pergo type flooring over carpet over VCT type tile. Respirator on, that all came up quickly to see the subfloor. The Trailer had lost a window and the PO was vague about it's whereabouts in Hurricane Harvey, so I wondered if the window was blown out or if it had sat in water. Removal of the street side lower interior skins showed no water line or corrosion.

The cabinets and bulkheads had a covering...

There was enough to this that I got real serious about finding the right short mid-60's trailer. I passed by an RV shop about 45 miles from my house that's about 10 miles from a small farm that I have. He often had an Airstream or two in his
