I'm including photos related to my travails with a brand new Shasta Airflyte 19.
Some show my solution for the AC. I insulated and sealed the AC compartment to prevent hot air from entering the interior, and added an 8" duct fan, then repositioned the silly little computer fan so that it is held in place by 3 screws. In 85 deg weather yesterday, the interior was cooled to 75 deg in under 1 hour. It eventually got down to 73 deg inside The trailer was in the shade on a sunny day.
The other photos show the gaucho pull out falling apart at the upper front team, which was supposed to be held together by stapled, many of which were misfired, none of which were adequate to the job of holding this joint together. It needs come metal corner braces, which I will add.
Is the President of this company apathetic, incompetent or simply a cruel cynic. I, like others, was attracted to this re-issue by the idea of a vintage travel trailer rebuilt with modern equipment. It would have been so easy, and cost very little more to have built these things right from the beginning.
