RE: Avion truck campers - Hundreds of photos

Wow it’s been quiet on this thread! No progress on my front windows yet, but thanks Ticki for the leads on possible gaskets per your post back on page 270. So much good stuff on this thread! We have made a lot of progress on a bunch of other aspects of our C-10 over the last two months. Built and installed a new floor - see images and details on my blog at the link below). Also all the wood cabinets have been stripped and the cabinet doors are all refinished. Did a bunch of 120v electrical work - new 30 amp inlet and replaced some wire and some outlets. Working on 12 volt stuff now, new converter, small inverter, new fuse box, etc... Also did some work with the plumbing, finally ready to have the custom black and grey tanks fabricated. -Don

RE: Avion truck campers - Hundreds of photos

Have any of you found a good replacement gasket that works with the original 1965-69 front cab-over windows? I think these windows were made by Phillips. I’ve been able to find good matches for most of the other windows at VTS and other places, but so far have not found a good match for the front. I know Several of you have rigs in which these windows were changed-out, but I’m trying to see if I can can find a gasket that works before resorting to anything more extreme. -Don

Welcome Avion68, glad to see another Avion truck camper project starting up! I’m pretty much just starting myself, but others here should have some good advice for you. I think most of us have found that the wood is the problem on most of these. I’m in the process right now of planning to replace the entire main floor over the next month or two. Posting photos is tricky on this forum these days, but it would be great to see some as you get going! -Don

We've been making slow progress over this winter on our C-10, but definitely won't be ready for a trip west this April. There's also the issue of needing to purchase a truck that it will fit in!

Rastaman.. for what it’s worth I was at a Tin Can Tourists vintage rally last week and there was a truck camper there that was permanently on a trailer similar to yours. It was well received by all and the unique functional advantages over a typical travel trailer we’re appreciated.

Wow, what a great thing, Argo is amazing! Besides the increadible aluminum structure the interior aesthetic looks fantastic. I also like how you preserved most of the hard lines of the original layout, so it is still recognizable on the inside as C-11.

Been busy here slowly dissembling and re-designing the bathroom, also spent a week with our vintage Shasta in Ohiopyle, PA. https://i1152.photobucket.com/albums/p497/65avionTC/IMG_3092_zpsien1ehai.jpg https://i1152.photobucket.com/albums/p497/65avionTC/IMG_3401_zpsc68k9nww.jpg
