Wow, Look at all those bright colours! Are you going to have the trailer ready for camping this year? I'm really going to enjoy having a closer look at your project at an open house.
I like the interresting pattern on your upper cabinets. What kind of material did you use for the boxes and how are the doors attached?

This year??? We already have Tadoussac booked for the second part of July so, we have to have it done in two weeks and failure is not an option

Today, we finished the main bed framing and started to cut the plywood for the top of it. The framing is possibly over-done but, I certainly make up in weight for the lightness of my lady and it has to stand up to some vigorous bouncing....... when towed over logging roads which we sometimes take to the remote spots in Ontario.


The material... it's kind of fine wicker, the kind that used to be used on the faces of old radios or speakers. I happen to have a roll of it laying around. Since the whole project is done on a shoestring so; we decided to try it and were pleasantly surprised by the outcome.

The doors are 5mm (under 1/4") sanded plywood attached at the top with spring loaded hinges. Hinges from Home depot for less than $2 a piece. 3 hinges per door keep it open up or very firmly closed when down so, no latches needed... I hope. The strip at the top is to give the hinge screws some meat to bite into.

The rear (main) bed is in. The mattress we lacked out on sale from Ikea fits with a 2" squeeze so, no need to cut it Under the mattress there are 3 hinged flaps covering storage area. Under the front of the bed there is an area open to the front for easy access. The bed is almost 20" high so, the future porta-potty will fit easily in there.
The rear window pane is in. Just have to make the corner frames. The surface of the bed is just inches below the window edge so, it's a bed with the view!!!

I like the colors and complete restore. The cabinet face looks great.

Be sure to sleep in jammies, or there may be more than one view!

Front dinette under way - the benches are completed. Now the table / mid bed insert. Cut foam / saw the cushions. There is so little time left and still so much to do..... The worst (ahead of me), the doors. In the meantime, I'm still thinking what to make the closed door out of. 50+" X 19", has to be flat, light... you know

The table, dinette seating cushions and the door are all finally done and the toolbox is mounted!
What is left are the closet doors and curtains but that can wait for after the launch.
As I'm typing this, the trailer is seating, ready for it's maiden trip tomorrow! It's going to be an adventure to lower it from the shipping dock of my company - no ramp, no ground level door... Well, I got it in, I'll get it out

Have a blast in that wonder on wheels. We'll wait patiently for camping pics (and I bet they all show big ole smiles on your faces)!
