Wendy - Bitten by the bug too, huh? There are great people on this board who go above and beyond to help out their fellow FGRV owners. If you can, please post photos of the inside of your trailer. Can't wait to see it!

We haven't started cleaning ours yet because it is too darn cold out and the hubby and I are on exact opposite work schedules right now (he works rotating shifts). As soon as we get a weekend off together, we will be spending it scrubbing every inch of our trailer. I did clean out some old chocolate bars out of the cupboard. Who knew that rancid chocolate could smell so horrible?!

Definitely bitten by the bug - which I never expected or even knew about! I'll get some pics up of the Now-Quite-A-Bit-Cleaner Trillium 1300 as soon as I can!

Welcome. Wendy!

First, give her/him/it a good bath, inside and out. Check out the Buyers Checklist (on the lesft of this screen), which will give you an idea of any "fixes" it needs. Then, just start reading, do searches, and ask questions!

And, don't forget to name that nice little Trill.

Happy restoring....happy camping!

Wendy - Those are great photos. Please post more as you do more work.

I think we are going to have our first cleaning session this weekend. What should we use to clean the ensolite? We don't have mold or mildew but it is very dingy looking.

R & S: We had some areas of mold, and the Ensolite was indeed dingy even after I took some bleach/detergent to it, so we decided to just paint it. I've seen others comment that it takes a coat of paint pretty well, and that really is the case. One coat of a semi-gloss latex on the walls, and a second coat on the seams looks like a new surface.

Welcome, Wendy, Rick and Shannen, We made the switch last year from a stick frame to an Egg, We stumbled on our 5th wheel Scamp at the Oregon Gathering last summer. The folks on the forum have been very helpful. We live in Clatskanie Or.so maybe we will see you in April . This is a great time of year to putter away fixing things awaiting the first camping of the season.
above all enjoy
