I might need some lifted springs to do it, but that's the plan.
Ok but the hangers I have designed are intended for GM springs, not IH. Not 100% that it won't work with them but I did want you to know that these hangers were not intended for IH springs.

Excellent build thread.
I just need to get going on another prototype to send out to our manufacturer. Lets say 6-8 weeks.

How has the engine/trans/gear combo treated you while towing?

Pretty darn good! I don't have the horsepower that my white Scout does as the engine in the Travelall was built stock but overall it does well and does not start to get hot on the hills like my built up Scout's 392 does. I can tow in 5th gear on the flat lands. If I towed more often I would probably drop the gearing further to either 4.88's or 5.13's for a little better grunt but when not towing and in the open highway I can't ask for a better gearing combo.

How heavy is your trailer? I would like to tow with my 69 travelette, but my trailer is 6800lbs empty. Just wondering how it would act.

My travel trailer empty is 3900 pounds, much lighter than yours. However I recently towed a traveler on my heavy steel car trailer(roughly 7000# trailer weight) and it handled just fine. The Travelall drives great. On the trip to Colorado I logged 920 miles in one 13 hour stretch.

@ mitch--your t-ette should be able to handle 6000 lbs. Without any problem.

The going isn't the problem with any light line rig. The engines used were the almost identical with the loadstar engines. The problem is the stopping.

I have towed my equipment trailer with my 6000 lbs. Tractor on the trailer with my '65 3/4-ton t-all without any issues.

Unlike Jeff's t-all I still have the stock axles and brakes. Unboosted four wheel drums do not stop as well as boosted four wheel discs.

With that caveat understood, towing large weights with our vintage rigs is very doable.

Strange question possibly, but could you give us a measurement of,.. Say, the top of the rocker (base of the door opening), or something that could give us d series owners a sense of how high your truck is? Thanks!

Sorry to take so long to answer this question. Finally had the Travelall in the shop on flat ground to perform some maintenance. I measured between the two doors and got 25" from bottom of rocker to floor not including the 1/2" or so lip that hangs down from the rocker.

Jeff,

I really like this build. I would like to do some similar things to my 73 travellette. I have looked at this several times but I cannot see it. Could you post the model number of the air spring helper kit that you used?

Also, what did you use for the new a/c parts, you post that you had them in your stock. Maybe, I overlooked where you posted what you used. I also have a good box, but would like to change the compresser, condenser, etc.

Thanks for the help.

I checked my computer files, pictures and such but unfortunately I did not document which air bag kit that I used. All receipts from last year are filed away but if I do happen to come across it I'll post it up.

As for the new a/c parts I happened to have one of our ama(Arizona mobile air) kits in stock for a Scout II and used its condenser, hoses and compressor. We have our own in house bracket that we use to mount the compressor.

Jeff, great buildup! I enjoyed looking it over at rmihr, you done great work to it! I took a good look at those front spring hangers there, but failed to take a picture, and now I can't remember.... I'm wanting to do something similar on my '73 pickup, could you put up a better lit picture of how they are bolted to the factory portion riveted to the frame? I'm questioning myself how to do that, as that piece isn't flush with the bottom of the frame and it seems not ideal to bolt to.

Thanks, Jeff! And certainly no hurry, it's not a rush project by any means!

Jeff,

do you have any pictures of the piece that goes over the rear view mirror for the 69 d series? I am trying to replicate it, and any pictures with a scale for reference, or a broken one would be great. Those things are next to impossible to find.

I agree mitch they are extremely hard to find. Mine was in a million pieces and got lucky that my brother Isa had one for me(although it was in a few pieces too but repairable). I'll get a picture of it in the very near future for you. If you do decide to make some of these I'll want a couple of them myself.
