Rear end repairs and replacement


Preparing the new C channel for welding

This is about how I felt midday….

New wood floor in. you can see the supports put in to hold the body in place 

We didn’t go with airstream original septic tank mostly to save money. We saved about 250 going with another type of tank that’s more readily available. It actually holds 5 gallons more then the original too.  

Jason begins making the tray that will hold the septic tank into place  

Damage from rust was un-repairable and need to be cut out and replaced from the frame. Here is a picture of the new C channel that was welded into place.  

The new belly pan for the septic tank area  

I installed  a drain in the middle of the pan incase of spillage or if I just want to hose it out once in awhile

  2. Do you have any photos of how you plumbed it on the inside?. I have a 74 sovereign rear bath. Had frame sag, all welded up now.it did come with gray and black tanks. But someone had taken both of them out and the support pan. I ordered some after market tanks but the plumbing is confusing, as i have never seen them installed.

  3. hey, im looking for a place to get the c channel for the rear of my 78 sovereign land yacht center bath. i was wondering wherenyou got your steel for this job. thanks
