Sprayed the inside with Behr interior paint. After years of the PO smoking it there camper the ensolite was absolutely stained and sticky.

Some of the fixtures installed. On the inside we still have to run some wire, cut new cabinet doors, run the water lines and back splash needs to be completed.

Rob, it is looking great!

One question...what is the square object in the fiberglass wall above the stove?

The only thing in the wall above the stove is a window, or is there something else you're seeing?

Hummmm! I really do need to get my glasses checked!

I guess my eyes were hoping that you had found a super small A/C!

You and me both! I was going to buy a window AC and stick it in that window on a hot day but every AC I looked at was over 20". It's crazy that after so many decades they still don't have the technology to make a small AC unit, unless I'm just not looking hard enough.

They have the technology to make larger trailers.

Just finished painting today, we were hoping for the yellow to be more of a buttery yellow but overall I am pretty happy with the color. I used Sherwin Williams AIC factory pack which is a single stage acrylic enamel branded for painting machinery and much much cheaper because of this. With a friends Sherwin Williams employee discount we payed a little over $80 for everything except the $15 hvlp gun from harbor freight. It took approx. a quart and a half of each color to do each half of the camper. The top half is actually a creamier off white color, my camera just isn't very good.

Maybe a better picture of what the off white looks like next to the gel coat.
