Ilene, the egg was painted professionally. I contemplated doing it myself but after a bit of investigation I knew it was it was worth paying for to have it done right.

The inside walls are currently uncovered. Dereck at Happier Camper gifted me some foam rubber like material that was used in the original Trillium trailers. It has an 'elephant skin' texture on one side and smooth on the other. This will go on after all the wiring and exterior body parts are attached.

Fun fact, after stripping off the original interior quilting, We scraped and ground off the old adhesive that was crusted inside the hull. Once smooth, we painted the hull with a ceramic insulation paint. It may turn out to be snake oil but I wanted to add another layer of insulation without going down the cellular foil route like the die hards do.

Cheers

Lights really make a camper come alive don't they? Plus, now you can pull it out for the weekend and use your glorified tent even if its not quite complete.



Keep on keepin' on Fred - its looking great.



Peace


Thanks Buggeee! Next step, complete the interior wiring.

Thanks for this great description. I'm not sure what we are going to with a stripped inside...

Snake oil, huh?

I have seen the cellular foil, but looks daunting. And then, what to put over that. Sure wish we lived closer to you, so I could have you consult. Remains to be seen as what we finally do...

Looking good!

Happy to see you're back. Your egg is looking great. I love the two toned paint job, looks luxe!

my 40f eagle has foam glued all around then naughahyde glued to that makes for a very smooth nice looking job!
