Desertphile's 1957 Westerner Restoration Project

Indispensable help on this project has been and is being given to me by Larry Mobiltec. He has a PATREON account, a YouTube account, and of course also his own web site.

"Previous owners do all kinds of crazy things trying to deal with leakage. All they really had to do was change the putty tape about once every 7 to 15 years depending upon their climate. We call that a 're-seal.' Doesn't really take all that long to do and your trailer will last forever if you do it. All that framing needs to be replaced along with the paneling anyhow. Curbing too. May as well do it right while you are in there and have the roof metal off. Way to go David. Moving along nicely."
