Vanessa, for window weatherstrip I used the AS1456 from perfect fit as it is close to the Uhaul original. I think I detailed it in the thread about the new old stock Uhaul windows. Otherwise Bridget has a great thread about rebuilding the windows. For a rear window in ours I installed a Scamp rear window, the wall opening has to be widened by about one inch. If you go this route do not use the foam rubber gasket provided by Scamp, use butyl tape. If you are using a propane Mr Heater, be sure to have some ventilation.

Thanks for the safety tip, M&B! I have a newish fan installed where the swamp cooler used to be. It has a very strong exhaust setting as well as blower. I don't really anticipate needing heat anytime soon where I'm going.

We spent the winter 3 months in our Uhaul at a campground in Georgia. Used an electric heater to keep warm. The original Uhaul wiring isn't much use, I rewired the whole trailer, both 110 and 12 volt and installed a new power converter. We have two sizes of the Mr Heaters, the small one and the medium size. Have used them in the trailer with a window slightly open, but will not use them while sleeping. We also have a Fantastic Fan in place of the swamp cooler.

Congratulations Vanessa, I understand your thrill of the find and getting on the road. It is so nice to re-live that excitement each time someone posts here that they have a new egg.

Well I think I agree, the hunt was so much fun. Now I'm a bit stumped with what to do first. I'm just trying to take a deep breath and enjoy her this summer...but the more I go through this board and see other trailers...Wow! I'd like to rip into her and start the rebuild. Thanks for the warm welcome!

Congratulations on your find and purchase. I'm sure you'll have many happy trips to talk about.
Speaking of happy trips I hope keep them all safe by making sure you drive a whole lot slower than the 80 mph you caught yourself going. California towing law is maximum 55mph and is posted on all freeways, plus a few other places. Trailer tires, which you probably should replace, typically have a 65 mph maximum speed rating. Look for the date code on the tires, if they are over 5 or 6 years old no matter what the tread looks like it's time to new tires.
Happy Camping and be safe.

Yes, Uncle Byron you are right! There are posted speed limits, which I do adhere to while driving.

I decided to pass a convoy of rigs on I-5, when I noticed how fast I was going to get past all five of them.

The point was how light the trailer is and how I didn't even feel it back there in that process.

Thanks for your concern!

We're in the same boat, the trailer is useable but would be so cool if we fixed it up. We are breaking our DIY projects into small chunks, so if a camping opportunity comes up we can use it in between updates. ;^)

When I removed the furnace, I added a pull out drawer to mine instead of just the open cubby. I cover the entire hole up with a door that I just Velcro in place (haven't gotten around to putting hinges on it). The door itself is a frame that I inserted a stiff piece of cardboard with some decorative fabric in it. http://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f...ect-51753.html

Also did a little Glamping up of my UH too. (which makes many hardcore campers go ACK!!)

Hey Pam, love the Glamping, I do just enough to feel pretty but not so much that I can't fit it in the trailer! I like the pocket on the door in the Glamping picture, great storage idea. What did you use for the step?
