It's been great to see the selection and availablity of materials and resources to help renovate Toby & Moby.  Technology,

along with innovative and high quality materials make figuring out how to fit out Toby will be fun using all the new components, materials, stuff & modules that's out there today. It's been a nice surprise to realize just how low cost  running a vehicle off grid these days will be.

 

From water storage & SOLAR  to LED lighting, i'm looking forward to  innovate with the Travco as a vehicle with which to travely safely, style & comfort as a rolling space.

Here's a bank of batteries in the specially designed pullout in the lower exterior compartment for the Travco:

Anybody looking for original Travco parts? I have them. The toilet apparently has a ball apparatus that is impossible to find when it wears out. Email me on the contact page form.

From insulation to toilets, the materials available now approximately 40 years later has changed a lot and my Travco's are ripe for this advantage... yeah. renovate... "restore to a former better state"

As a recap, a lot's been done since the last post about 6 months ago.

Custom gas tank built, sealed, primed and installed - thanks to Tom & Chris.

The inside has been stripped clean down to the fiberglass.only refrig, betty crocker style stove, oven and propane heat unit remain to be graciously ripped out.

Toilet and whole fiberglass bathroom enclosure..it's outta there.

Here's the new guy on the block  for potty time- no more driving anxiously to a suitable spot to empty the tank.

All electrical needs to be run for solar installation. Thinking over 3500 watts daily for power needs. (high but have a lot of real estate on roof).

FOR TRAVCO GELCOAT

What did you use to repair the gelcoat?

Remove the old gel coat gloss layer of and then you must color match this, is not as easy as it looks, boatworkstoday.com has a step by step to match the color. You can get the products from fiberglast.com. for pinholes use a small dremel tool to create a small concave area, then you can add gelcoat filler with harder, sand then spray or even brush on two coats of gel coat color, sand again with 300 grit to 1500, then buff and polish. This should get you started

A Little Travco Trivia...

The country music star Johnny Cash owned and toured in several Dodge Travcos (many of which are included in documentaries and films about him) over the course of his career; William Shatner of 'Star Trek' had a specially customized 1979 Travco with four wheel drive. Travco was considered a leader in the industry, and was the first manufacturer to create a vehicle that defined the modern day Motorhome. Lucille Ball used a Dodge, Travco throughout the first four episodes of season 2, as Lucy, Harry, Kim and Craig take a road trip to Colorado. Gary Player rode with the Team Lotus in a specially outfitted Dodge,Travco.
