Default New Silver trailer

WE are se4lling (may already be sold) our beautiful 1979 Silver Streak and have bought a NEWER 1989 Avion Silver 34V. It is in great shape, but needs some cosmetic and redecorating work. It has 2 A/C u nits but wired so that you run one or the other, not both. First project is to wire the trailer to accept 50 amp service and get it so that I can run BOTH A/C units.

Next is to get an operating station set up for the radio.

Then the XYL and redocorate to her heart is content.

A couple of photos.

Wow.

Those things never go out of style.

You've got a classic, an RV, something for you and the wife to dote upon all in one package.

You're really going to enjoy that.

Nice Ken ! I agree with Radio, that is a classic. They seem to last forever. As long as they are polished and clean, I can't tell one year from the other. Hi Hi.

HERE are the shots of the new interior. See post number EIGHT in the thread.

The first shot is the new Progressive Dynamics 50 amp Power Panel, so that we can run both A/C units.

I have not had time to hook up the radio in the trailer yet. I do plan to make a connecion directly to the batteries in the future as well as get an antenna connection set up with an operation station. The XYL would just as soon not have a shack in the trailer...just do not understand that attitude.

"The XYL would just as soon not have a shack in the trailer.." WHAT, just don't understand that kind of talk. If you can't have a radio then she can't have a TV how far can you go with that?
