RE: Baxter SP

Baxter SP is unique among Maine SP and has it's own rules . Generally legitimate service dogs are not considered pets most places . You could call the park to find out their policy . As nice as it is there is much more to Maine than Baxter SP .

RE: 1968 Travel Queen Resto Mod - 3. Structure and New Wood

I think your plan for laminating the bunk floor with insulation is a good idea and will be just as good , if not better than the original 3/4 ply . The only suggestion I have , if you haven't already thought of it , is to use some styrofoam adhesive in addition to the other fastenings to make the styrofoam part of the structural integrity of the whole .

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

This looks like it could be a good one http://www.ebay.com/itm/1967-Aluminum-Avion-C10-cab-over-camper-Airstream-Silver-Streak-/171595103534?forcerrptr=true&hash=item27f3dd7d2e&item=171595103534&pt=RVs_Campers Notice the added bracing on the jacks .

RE: Baxter SP

Good question , there is also a 7' width restriction and a 22' length . Almost seems aimed at TC's . The " rules " state that a special permit MAY be issued by the director .

RE: 1968 Travel Queen Resto Mod - 10. Galley & Greatroom

Here are a few pics , pretty simple . http://i679.photobucket.com/albums/vv151/ticki2/avion004_zps91646cd1.jpg width=640 http://i679.photobucket.com/albums/vv151/ticki2/avion002_zps21b3769b.jpg width=640 Look at that , one screw wasn't ss . They all have to be replaced anyway , ss is not good for aluminum . http://i679.photobucket.com/albums/vv151/ticki2/avion004_zps91646cd1.jpg width=640 http://i679.photobucket.com/albums/vv151/ticki2/avion001_zps1d58ae96.jpg width=640 I have good luck finding older parts here http://www.rvdoctorgeorge.com/

RE: 1968 Travel Queen Resto Mod - 10. Galley & Greatroom

My Avion has a similar exterior grill to the one in your picture but in addition there is a three sided cover that screws or rivets to the outside shell , the bottom being open . It looks something like the Ventline without the back flange that would go into the opening . It is also aluminum not plastic . One could probably make one without too much trouble . They were pretty common on older campers , a salvage yard may have one . I'l try to get a better picture if it's not too covered in snow. http://i679.photobucket.com/albums/vv151/ticki2/North%20Maine%20Woods/IMG_0818.jpg width=640 And yes the floor can get wet from the frig vent but in truth have only noticed it rarely .

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Cajun , I think your replacement floor of 2 layers of 3/4 ply , screwed and glued is substantially stronger than the original sandwich floor of 3/8 ply , 1" styrofoam , 3/8 ply , especially if it has gotten wet a few times in it's 40 year life .

RE: 1968 Travel Queen Resto Mod - 10. Galley & Greatroom

Now looking up we come to the range hood and vent. http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u423/davezen1225/Travel%20Queen%20Truck%20Campers/Resto%20Mod%2010%20Galley%20Greatroom/20141210_132912_zps3af844e5.jpg Sorry wrong picture , I tried to count down , it's the next one. Looking back to your pictures of the two campers this appears to be the final exterior vent cover . If so it might be why there was water intrusion . Most campers have an additional hood over that vent to prevent water intrusion while traveling . There is also usually a flapper somewhere to prevent cold air coming in when the vent fan is off . If you are going to modify the hood with a fan and light you may consider replacing the hood with one that incorporates all three features , fan , light and flapper , It would still be period correct as mine has all three . I had a major leak at the range hood vent because of poor original installation.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Cajun , it sounds like you have replaced the floor in your C-10 . Could you elaborate on it's composition and thickness ?

RE: 19.5 Wheel and Tire???.

Ticki2 - did that happen while driving?!!! Yes it did , actually I don't know how long , days . Once in a while there would be a creaking going down hill , nothing under load , no wobble , shimmy or shake . Drove me crazy until it finally started to loosen the lug nuts , that's how I found it . Did you notice the lug bolts ? Bill they are OEM steel wheels , happened two years ago .

RE: 19.5 Wheel and Tire???.

Has anyone ever broken a stock wheel because of carrying a camper, or is this just fixing a problem that doesn't exist The short answer is yes . I can't say for sure it was the camper or some other load but stock wheels do break . This is an inner wheel on my DRW . http://i679.photobucket.com/albums/vv151/ticki2/radarstationme014.jpg width=640

RE: water pump issues

Check the suction line and connection to the water tank . Also the anti-freeze fitting if you have one .

RE: 1968 Travel Queen Resto Mod - 8. Fresh Water

Dave , as I stated I am not a plumber and certainly no expert . The Anderson device did say that it had a vacuum breaker in addition to a check valve so incorporating a vacuum breaker in your line may suffice. The one aspect I didn't care for with the Anderson is that it is all at the exterior wall and subject to freezing . On my camper the check valve is 8" in from the wall , similar to a freeze proof hose bib.

Ruthiebaby , looks like you settled on a nicely matched rig . Happy camping .

RE: Narrowing it down...

Jim, Yeah airlift 5000s..although I only use 20 psi because any higher than 30 psi it creates more sway the way airbags have to be installed on 3 rd generation Dodges. mounted on axle to bed frame.http://i907.photobucket.com/albums/ac280/billyray50/P1020345_zps312d5a07.jpg width=640http://i907.photobucket.com/albums/ac280/billyray50/P1020342_zpscdfab335.jpg width=640 Believe it or not these bags are installed properly. Had other Dodge owners state the same and do not like them. Think super springs would be better choice since my truck does not have top overload leaf spring. Wouldn't that bottom airbag saddle straddle the shock mount so it's inline with the top ? That's scary looking .

RE: 1968 Travel Queen Resto Mod - 8. Fresh Water

Here is another option . http://home.comcast.net/~netboy/#DeckPlate By having a hose cock directly above the deck plate you could fill the tank as fast as you want , have an air gap to satisfy plumbing code , and an inspection port all in one . It also allows for manually filling with a bucket if the need arises .

RE: Weight Distribution Bars

Over a short distance you didn't hurt anything . What it did was unbalance the weight distribution left to right which would alter the handling characteristics in a negative way . Don't do it again ! :B
