btw, my little PP was christened "Egg Krate" at the Labor Day dulcimer event I attended. So, now we should work up a name for yours. How about Bass Bucket?
Well Bass Bucket sounds OK but then the step sons might get the wrong idea and try to borrow it for hunting! I keep leaning toward the idea of making it real girlie so it has much less appeal as a hunting buggy and I won't even get asked to borrow it. I'm thinking pinks here... Perhaps retro light greens - I just don't know yet. Anything so it has no male appeal. I don't want my new toy to have hunting cooties! Dirty boots - blood and guts - antlers and turkey feathers - squirrel tails -ticks and fleas! All the things boys are made of! Oh no! If they see it they'll want to camo the whole thing!

Today I promise to get in there and get some pics to photobucket rain or no. Right now it looks like it's 5 am out there and it's already 8AM. Still dark. Hope the sun comes thru today - I want to go to my pond and check on my bass and see how they fared thru the storm a couple days ago.

Camilla, that is the coolest faucet I've ever seen.
I wrote to the manufacturer and they don't have a distributor in the US. It probably cost a million trillion dollars anyway

I do want to have extra neat appliances and gadgets in the trailer though. I am going to keep looking! I guess I could find out what it costs to ship one from Italy GULP!

Still raining!

That probably has more to do with the electricity portion of the faucet than anything. Remember, Europe electricity is 220 volts, 50 Hz frequency

while this side of the pond we use 110 or 120 volts and 60 Hz.

I hadn't thought of that dilema... I love your photo by the way. I guess I'll have to come up with one...

My Playpac

OK Bonnie! I'll have you know I was wet and cold and froze to death, caught pneumonia on the way, almost died shivering, crawled through the mud with my camera but somehow managed to get out there and take the photos just for you Well... sorta

I don't even know what all the things are yet under the back. I zipped in, grabbed photos and zipped back in the house except for a side trip back to the pond to check on my bass. My pond has come all the way from being down 3 foot to up to the brim now!

I put those triangles on the back on the camper when we transported the other day - I didn't have the proper plug for hookup and don't even know if the lights work on it anyway yet. As you can see I have my job cut out for me. When I was peeking around I saw a tiny hole in the floor over behind the frig. I will get to learn a new craft - fiberglass!

Have a cup of hot chocolate on me.

Wow. You do have a job ahead. The converter/charger looks like mine. Guess that makes it 30+ years old! So, let's see, you have a water tank and converter and was that a gas line behind the water tank? And was that a hot water heater? My goodness! I think the kitchen looks savable, though that fridge is a might small. . I'm excited for you. This should be a very fun project.

Maybe the stuff in the bathroom could be sanded smooth and then finished. It might save some work.

Don't ya just love the shape?

You know Bonnie, I don't know for sure but they all seem to be '73 models. Maybe they just made them one year? I hope to find out in a couple of weeks when Gulf stream gets the tornado problem cleaned up. The old man has died but his two sons have taken over the company.

I have two water tanks. There is one in the back under the bench and another one under the sink and I have no idea how everything is tied in. Is that big silver box a hot water heater? I haven't even looked. I have something else behind it - converter? There is a space in the bottom of the closet where there was something - heater? - that was vented to the outside. You can see where there is tape covering a hole on the outside. I'll put something over that or figure out something later.

The frig IS small and I hate that it's so low. I sure would rather have a fridge at eye level. That's something to think on also. I really need a whole new plan.

Yes, I did think on sanding smooth the bathroom walls and finishing with something waterproof. It will take a LOT of sanding or grinding! I'll have to see how that stuff holds up. It may just break off. Tiny glass tiles would be nice :c) Light green or blue :c) Or real light pink to keep the boys out!

I guess I'll look for one of those toilets that have the tank built underneath them in one unit and then I could plumb maybe to the outside. I still have to think of how to plumb the shower as I can look thru the drain and see the grass growing under the trailer... Wonder if one of those toilets would fit in the back of that shower closet? If it ever stops raining I'm going out with my measuring tape.

Hi Bonnie, To answer a couple of your questions. Tha air conditioner was very light wt. and protruded in as much as outside. the plywood supported it with only trim boards around outside. Didn't have a ceiling fan only vent. Kept hitting head on small vent crank. Might mention that to help support I placed two oak banister pickets on top of the small floor cabinet
near the isleway and placed a 1in x 6in. board on cieling with glue to help roof sag.Dont have picture . Bill

Camilla, make it really frilly and pink and it'll be safe, I wager.

Bill, thank you for your answers. Makes sense. I wondered about the vent and head bumps. Ed Harris dropped by to help remove the 2x4s stuck to the ceiling and couldn't stand up fully except in the bubble. He was a good sport about it, but I really short and don't have that issue.

I have the electric stuff worked out in my head, so I can start laying out the interior. This is really a great time for me. I love putting things together.

Bonnie - will you put in an A/C? Wonder what the smallest one out there is? I was looking on the web at some portable ones but they are kinda high dollar. I guess the way to go would be a slide out drawer thingy with a tiny one but I'll hate to cut a hole. I'll probably put it at floor level so I don't have to worry quite as much about support.

Have you picked out cushions? Colors? Curtains? Do you have screens in your windows?

I was also going to ask if you have window hardware since mine are just screwed shut. I'll have to look closely but I didn't see any hardware for opening and shutting them which was another reason I was contemplating just replacing them so maybe you could paleeeze take a hardware photo for me?

I'm also looking for those toilet units that sit up on a square stand with the black tank under them. I'm going to need the smallest possible and hope it will fit in the shower. This is going to be so fun to have this little camper!

Does your door shut well? Mine is bent out a tiny bit on the bottom.

Yes, that's one of my bass. He's my favorite and I took that photo the day after he ate about twenty 8-inch HUGE worms I got for him (we were digging our grey water line up). It was well over a pound of worms . He's about 17" The day before he positively waddled away. I love the guy and he's quite entertaining. He likes me to cut his food up "just so" or he won't eat it... just like a kid when you have to cut up their peanut butter sandwiches into teepees or cut the crusts off . I took a little video of his silliness one day: My pet bass Meanandlean
