Looks great! Let me know when you're ready to decorate as I love to sew and talk decorating our fiberglass RVs.

Thanks Jon and Lisa for your reply's. I gave it thought and did decide to eliminate the fresh water tank. I did find a company that can get me the same ten gallon water tank and will put the fittings in the locations I give them. I didn't think it was worth the few hundred it would cost me. I will go with one of the options that includes the use of a portable and cleanable water source when roughing it.

I have the body off the frame so I can inspect the frame for any damage and make repairs. The frame is in remarkably good condition. I do have it to a local welder to have a new 2'' A-frame coupler welded on as the other one is in very bad shape. I bought four stabilizer jacks that will be mounted to the frame. I am having plates and supports welded so I can attach the jack stands and when not in use they will be folded up and be flush with the bottom of the frame so I don't loose any ground clearance. I will then sand blast and powder coat. I did buy new hub kits that I will install after painting is done. I may start a new thread showing pictures as I get the frame work done and begin to put the body back on it. I have a busy 6-8 weeks ahead with work and travel so will try to have it on the frame early October.

Great find Rick!!

Where are you at in Michigan?

There's a great marine store in Benton Harbor called Wolf's, kind of a Big Lots or Ollie's full of boat stuff.

I mention it because they have a large "teak bin" and lots of teak and mahogany items.

Also a big variety of towing stuff, new and used like axles, hubs, tires, bearings, etc.

I have no connection to the store, other than I shop there a lot.

You did a great clean up, hope to see interior pics.

Thanks for that John. That sounds like the kind of place I like to walk through and get ideas and such.

I live on the south side of GR near M6 and 131. I was thinking thinking I might have to take a drive there, look around and kick keels as well. I tend to run Holland, Grand Haven, Pentwater and ports north. I haven't gone south of Saugatuck so I should just drive down and check it out. Benton Harbor is about 80 Miles from me. I always stay on the highway and drive on by. Sounds good to me so thanks for the tip.
