New from Oklahoma

hi everyone,I am from Oklahoma.My wife and I both work at a nursing home here and we bought a 1967 Swiss Colony from a guy off of ebay about 3 years ago and went to Ohio to get it.We pulled home where I immediately completly took it down to the wood frame and replaced any rotten wood and then sprayed the whole interior with water sealer.I built a bath with shower stall and new toilet all new plumbing rewired all the electrical with new wiring,added a new converter all new led tail and marker lights new stove,refrigerator I know it is a 1967 in name only but I cant afford a new trailer and would like the modern conveniences and i know what it is made of.I have one question about air conditioning.I want to buy a rooftop unit but I am concerned about the weight on my roof,when I built the shower stall I ran my lumber across and hooked into the roof and then went down to the floor then reinforced around where the hole where the a/c would go.Is this enough to put a rooftop there?

Howdy and welcome to the forum. Sounds like you have quite the project going there. As far as the A/C, without seeing pictures of how you framed it it's hard to say but with your description it sounds OK to carry the weight of the unit. Hope you have a great time when your finished and how about some pics???? Good luck and hope to see you down the road.

Howdy and welcome aboard. Glad you joined us and hope you enjoy the site.

My website describes the conversion of my Dodge B-250 van into a small RV. I deal with a lot of woodworking, but hope to be quite specific on solar as well.

Howdy and welcome! Check out the Vintage Owners section of the board; you'll likely find answers to your questions about the rooftop unit. Good luck.
