Window Day

I'm enjoying a day to work on my gutted out 1976 Scamp. I am reglazing the existing tilt out windows by using various rubber strips from Vintage Trailer Supply. I'm going to try something creative with cup hooks to latch the windows. Since I have egress at the front and rear windows, I'm just going to screw on some polycarbonate panes to the side windows.

I'm thinking about using fiberglass resin to coat and stick radiant insulation along the inside walls (foil colored bubble wrap) and then build a wood indo skeleton to make a gypsy trailer wonderland.
