Pics of the new used one

Well I managed to get the new used trailer home today instead of tomorrow... she tows like a dream compared to my old 24 foot Alumabox... I forgot she was back there a few times. The registration says it's a Play-Boy, but the trailer says Play-Pac. Either way she's a 1972 and weighs in at 900lbs. As ya'll can see she needs some work, especially in the kitchen area... yikes... only one good shot of the interior, and that's of the kitchen area. As you can see she has this little glass bubble on the roof that acts like a skylite. Kinda reminds me of the bubble on the Jupiter2.

OK folks... now the fun begins... any suggestions for names?<img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3f048a1eba764playpac2.jpg/> <img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3f048a265eedaplaypac3.jpg/> <img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3f048a33cc176playpac5.jpg/> <img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3f048a42b3541playpac4.jpg/>

New One

Congratulations!
It looks better than ours did. How long is it and what is the interior layout. It looks neet.

Totally, Cute, Eric. Congratulations!

I'm sure you see a lot that doesn't show up in the picture, but it looks really good from here.

And, yes, I did notice the skylight....that's a neat touch!

13 feet long, front kitchen area, and from the door back is one big dinette/bed. It was "redone" by the previous owner, and, uhmmmm, well not too well.

The bottom of the door doesn't close tightly, the hinge is sprug a bit, so I would imagine it would do a Titanic rather quickly.

Uhmmmmm... I saw the posting.... only if there's electricity... :) there's no 12v anything in this baby, as a matter of fact there is only one 110v outlet in the whole thing... yet another thing that needs to be remedied.

I have my work cut out for me...

Well the rose colored glasses have worn off... Spent some of the 4th making a list of stuff that needs to be done. First and foremost the carpet that the previous owner glued to the walls has to go. It looks horrible and he really didn't do that great of a job putting it up. Second are the windows. They have these little aluminum tabs you push out to open them. They hardly open enough to get a breeze.

<img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3f05a51eb88d8work5.jpg/>


This is the kitchen window. You can see the bad job of recarpeting and the "window cranks"

<img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3f05a56f4eb48work3.jpg/>

This is the rear window. Same as the front only missing one of it's "cranks"

<img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3f05a62b841acwork2.jpg/>

The side windows are the same story with a twist. On the street side the frame is screwed shut. On the curb side the frame is missing altogether and a piece of plexi is screwed into the frame. All of the windows have two or three layers of various types of caulking around them.

<img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3f05a6c681b5bwork4.jpg/>

The original tailights have been replaced with generic tailights. You can't really see it, but the fiberglass under the rear bumer is cracked quite badly. Must have been banged against a tree stupm or curb or something.

The sink is there but not attached to anything, incoming water or drain. The 2 burner stove does work though. The ice box wouldn't keep dry ice even on the cool side. It has a huge crack in it.

The floor was replaced by the previous owner by putting 1/4" plywood over the 1/2" OSB with 2" screws, so the bottom of the trailer looks like a medivial cheese grater.

So here's the plan of action.
1) Entire trailer is going to be gutted out. The previous owner redid the dinette/bed and kitchen "cabinets" and are junk anyway. Carpet is going to be stripped out from the walls and ceiling.
2) Screws protruding from the bottom of the trailer get roto-zipped off.
3) Windows and frames removed and cleaned up. Plexi replaced and then reinstalled.
4) Roof dome removed, cleaned and reinstalled.
5) New carpet installed on walls and ceiling.
6) New bed frame, new kitchen cabinets built and installed. New fridge and hook up the sink.
7) Install new flooring. Carpet/lino/laminate/whatever

After the interior is done, I am going to try my hand at fiberglass repair to fix the cracks and holes, replace the tailights, and see who is good around my area at painting.

So maybe by 2018 when I retire it will be ready to go on the road:)
