Rebuilding a furnace for a U-haul VT

Had to rebuild the furnace, so took it out, took it apart, brazed it up, put it back together, put it back in

Roger,
I'm not planning on using the furnace currently in my CT13. [I believe it was working when the previous owners bought it... but don't think they used it either.]
Would you be interested in it, to rehab and then sell to someone else wanting the original setup but perhaps nervous about its age? I'd be willing to send it your way, for nothing more than postage to do so.
And then I wouldn't be concerned about selling a fellow camper something I couldn't confidently say was safe-and-ready-to-go.
I haven't been able to schedule work on my camper just lately, but will be at it again fairly soon, and could make it a priority to remove the furnace, thermostat etc.
Just a thought...........
Gary

A Gravity furnace and you did a most excellent job. To bad they don't supply them in campers anymore. No electricity to run, no fan noise, freash air and exhaust both to the outside and most excellent heat.
