RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Hey guys I'm contemplating what I want to do for a grey water tank for my C11. I think I'm going to keep the black tank as is and plumb the shower, bath sink and kitchen sink into a grey tank. One way to go is purchase a tank that will fit the space. Another would be have a custom tank made by a local fabricator. A third option might be making a tank out of PVC pipes. I'm thinking of linking together side by side 4 " or 6 " PVC pipes each being 6 - 7 ' long how crazy is this idea ? I'm thinking of drilling each pipe with three holes maybe 1.5 " in diameter on the sides of each pipe. Use PVC glue or epoxy or ? to glue in nipples to connect one pipe to another. So lets say three pipes side by side could flow into each other, one of them would have the drain valve. The inlets could be one, two or three individual inlet pipes. Am I crazy to consider this ? If I could get 20 gallons of capacity I'd be happy. You guys know the rear area in a C10/C11 is pretty snug to work/install a second tank that's why I'm thinking of pipes. Thoughts ?

RE: I think this exceeds DOT specs on his truck

Put a 4 cylinder turbo diesel in it that would make a fun rig.

RE: Heat strip in Polar Cub?

Don't you want heat down at floor level so it rises ? Seems to me heat at roof level is borderline useless but I have no personal experience that's why I ask.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

It's not easy to stay focused on a long term project. But your chances of success partly relies on setting realistic time goals. I set a two year time frame to complete my restoration. I'm coming up on the end of year one. Interior completely stripped and all structural wood in the wings is complete. Now have to move onto the rear floor. I do not work in the cold so basically taking 3 months off. Am I going to hit completion in two years ? Maybe but to be honest I'm not concerned. This is a marathon not a sprint. Final results are what matters. Plus I have many outside interests so time has to be divided properly with a balance for everything. Once I get the rear floor done I think I catch some more pace. My goal is to take it to the 12 Hours of Sebring sports car race in 2015...........we'll see.

RE: In Line Water Filter

Lot's of variables that can affect filter quality that are hard to judge. What is the quality of the water being filtered ? What elements in that water are being filtered ? Does the filter cartridge contain anything to kill bacteria ? Filtering chlorine is one thing vs. dirt/sediment/iron etc. and all will change the filters ability to filter. In my opinion I would go six month intervals, I base that solely on not knowing if the filter has an anti-bacterial feature. A charcoal/carbon filter will basically filter until it is clogged. But that does you no good if it is a breeding ground for bacteria !

RE: Loading a camper on this truck.

That truck would look great with a 25-27 ' Avion or Airstream travel trailer mounted on it !

RE: replacing a LP regulator- what to purchase ?

I do not recall any additional regulators on any of the appliances. To be honest the only " old " appliances I will be using is the oven/range and water heater and I don't think the water heater is original. I will be going to a vented cat heater and I have a newer Dometic fridge to install. The idea of having a tank mounted regulator for the extra tank I had not thought of thanks for that suggestion. 69 Avion you have so many hoses/fittings in that second pic I got dizzy ! I assume the quick connects are for when you tap in aux. LP items ?

replacing a LP regulator- what to purchase ?

I have a 1968 Avion C11 that I am restoring. I've never run any of the LP items in the camper. Originally the camper had two 11 lb. horizontal tanks which did not come with the camper when I bought it. I now have a new 20 lb. horizontal tank. Not knowing the condition of the regulator I have decided to replace with new. So I'm going from two bottles to one, but I would like the ability to either add a second bottle on the ground OR be able to " tap in " a second hose to run an outside grill or similar. So would I replace the regulator with a " two bottle " type ? Any suggestions on what regulator to purchase ? I received gift certificates to Tweety's and Vintage trailer supply so I plan on purchasing from one of them. Any advice is appreciated. Happy new year !

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Good luck with the sale, anyone thinking about getting into an Avion here is a chance to get a good one and it's unique in its exterior. I've lost momentum on my restoration only because I don't like working in the cold. Come spring I'm back at it I hope to complete mine in 2014.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

For those of you that have done partial/total interior restorations what are you using for flooring ? Obviously they came from the factory with sheet vinyl and nothing wrong with it, it's cheap, easy to install and to keep clean. But laminate flooring has come a longs ways along with bamboo and plank type wood flooring. I've got three weiner dogs so their hair/nails/etc. is part of the decision. I'm not ready to install yet as I still have to replace the rear portion of the subfloor but just thinking ahead. And Merry Christmas to everyone !!!

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Avion C-11 the Kool Seal that you used is this sold in local box stores as silver mobile home roof coating ? Or is it a specific RV coating ? I need to do mine and I want to do it in silver vs. white/black. And aprox. how much did you use ? How many coats ? Looks great !

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Some nice work going on here. This morning I bit the bullet and ordered a 20 lb. horizontal LP bottle from AdventureRV.net. With shipping $170.00 delivered to my door I was tired of looking for used original bottles. This will leave me some room in the LP storage box for maybe the freshwater hose and a few more items. Yes the box is galvanized I too will clean mine up and paint it with something.

RE: 1990 Coachman 095SD repair and upgrade project

You can make that into a fine camper but do yourself a favor and throw away the silicone caulk.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Garry unfortunately because of floor rot I will be replacing the floor at the rear of the camper. My plan is to basically cut it across at the end of the wings and remove everything from that cut line to the rear of the camper. I " think " I will replace with 1 1/2 " plywood vs. the plywood/foam/plywood done by Avion. In addition to this I will do the angle iron support on the inside as shown on previous posts. And finally what ever grey water tank I end up with I will through bolt it before laying down the finished floor. If that's not solid enough I give up. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

69 Avion so I understand this the bottom of your shower pan has been built up with glass but the sides remained the OEM thickness is that correct ? I'm not ruling out fixing what I have but I'm also planning on adding a grey water tank. Adding that tank " may " change the drain outlet location of the shower pan. It can't move that much but any change in the drain hole would negate using the original. Thanks for the feedback. You are correct on the side thickness. It doesn't need to be thicker, on the sides, to contain water. Mine had a slight crack in the side corner so I cut it more to make it fit better, made a wood brace to hold it where I wanted it and had my fiberglass guy glass it in that location. By the way, changing the shower pan drain location isn't necessary to put a gray water tank in. In fact, I can't think of a better location than where it is from the factory to be able to put a trap in it and connect it to a gray water tank. Thanks for the tip on the drain outlet.
