I am finally getting a start on restoring my 1973 PlayPac. I bought my playpac back in 2009 and finally have a start on it! Oh yeah, this one doesn't have the glass dome ... so far the only one I've seen without it.
Some pics here:
I've been using the trailer to store items and move some things around. Its fully registered and has new rubber and tows great. But now its time for a complete frame-up restoration and return to camper glory.
Interior is fully removed ... I have all of the original interior parts except fridge
. Besides the floor repair, my biggest challenge is repairing the door. The door is removed because the door frame (inner frame holding door itself) is completely broken. I've noticed that the windows
have the same frames and radius corners as the door. I would like to keep all of the original windows
, but I may need to sacrifice the front window in order to use the frame material to repair the door.
I'm wondering if anyone knows about the playpac windows
and door, since they apparently came from the same place ...
Does anyone know who the window/door mfg is? I'm hopeful that maybe I will be able to identify the same frame material used on other RVs/windows that I could scavenge, and thus avoid having to sacrifice one of the original windows?
Older scamps have similar tilt out windows... any chance the frame is the same?
Better yet, does anyone know of a PlayPac door in good shape? (Hah, slim chance, but doesn't hurt to ask)
