        Thanks for posting all the great photos. Interesting to see exactly what they look like when stripped down.
        Congrats on the buy.

          Thanks.The framing originally just hap hazard stapled together.Where they were stapled together I glued in some 3/4 x 2 inch wood blocks.It really added a lot of strength to the joints.

                Steve, in addition to your photo posts being interesting & informative, you may have also saved me the trouble of starting a new thread & posting my "problem photo" showing the original tongue & jack on my '66 Shasta. The jack no longer works because sometime in its prior life it got bent/banged up, and no longer cranks. It's basically stuck in a fairly low position (about like where yours is, in your photo above, if you include the length of the removable "foot" shown in your photo). I've been wondering what to do about that, which sections were replaceable, which replacement parts were readily available, whether I'd have to cut it out with a torch vs be able to unbolt it, etc). It looks (operative word) like I should (hmmm) be able to unbolt "just the jack" exactly the way yours is unbolted and replaced, above. Did you have any trouble getting your ancient bolts to come out? The very few times I used my Shasta, years ago, I had a pickup that was "lifted" so a low, non-functional jack wasn't a significant problem (there was no risk of it dragging or snagging, hitched to a tall bumper). Now I have a stock height small pickup, and the frozen-in-place jack would probably drag. Where did you get your jack?

                  Original jack was already gone when I bought it but he gave me new one he hadn't installed.The hole in the A coupler had to be enlarged a little (used a grinder) for the new jack to fit.The bolt holes lined up perfect
                  and just bolted right in.
                  E Trailer has several model jacks and of course Amazon has everything.

                    Beds on each side will face to the rear . The cutout in rear is for the AC.

                          Removed both disentegrated roof vents.Did away with the one on outer edge and covered with aluminum sheet.
                          Since I was replacing center vent I added a nice 3 speed fan.
                          Now that the roof holes are plugged I can start hanging the inside ceiling.
