Are you sure it's a 68 . To the best of my knowledge , 68 was the first year of the C11 and 67 was the last year of the C10 . That said , stranger things have happened . You can make a replacement for the bath door . It is simply a single thickness of 3/4" plywood . The comode can be replaced with new . The rest of the bath interior will be hard to come by , lower plastic surround , plastic shower pan , black tank . The fresh water tank can be replaced with new . There was no grey water tank , some here have added one . You could also go with a cassette toilet and eliminate the black tank . Good luck

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.

Mine leaked terribly when we lived in a Alaska. I got so tired of a wet bed that I took the aluminum duct tape and sealed the entire window to the outside frame. It was not only the frame to frame seal but it was the glass to frame seal leaking. There we got enough ventilation via the roof vent. Now that we moved south where it gets hot I need to figure this same challenge out ...

If you go to oldest post first and then to page 270 , I explained how I rebuilt my side plexiglass Windows wit h parts and sources . The front Windows are similar on a 68.

Hi again,
So I have decided I need the 3 tripod original jacks.
Mine has 4 sketchily attached hydraulic jacks, but it looks like the originals would work better.
I have the feet, and the camper has the round receivers. Anyone have some Boch jacks for me?

BYW I built a nice low stand out of cut-down scaffolding and wheels so I can roll the rig around and fit it under my carport. (I would show you but am unclear how to upload a photo to this site).

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.

flyte63....I checked in on your blog spot....very interesting. It never fails to amaze me how inovative and talented the Avion onwers on this site are....It makes me shudder just to read some of the tasks that are accomplished...I hope I wont have to do a floor replacement on My C10...

I would say good luck with the rest of the renovation...however i dont think you depend on luck :-)

Maybe one day we can still all plan to meet up in Telingua..
