Welcome. In the document center find a sheet of UHaul parts. The hinge is from a commercial freezer door.

Thats it, i'm addicted!

Got back from work at 5h30, stop at the propane shop, i've got a appointment wednesday to get my fridge installed and the gqz lines checked.
Do you guy's use one or 2 propane bottle?

On my way back, got a phone call, someone is very motivated in buying my old wawa camper trailer that i posted on kijiji this morning! They drive down from about 2h away to see tommorow...if that works, the "camper change" will be done in less than 48h.

Got home, took all my stuff out of the wawa camper to make it nice and ready for sale! One beer(its crazy hot, got to have a beer)

Then i got into the uhaul....
-removed microwave/tablet
-removed the bunk bed...another beer (did i say its hot?)
-then a 3rd beer looking at all the details of the trailer and planning in my head.
-simulated a front table with the rear table to see how big will be my table.

Enough work, let get inside the house witha/c
Cant get the uhaul out of my mind so I've printed some pics of the uhaul to draw some paint/design ideas...of course with a beer!

Hello my name is Bernard and i'm now addicted to an egg camper!

Oh Oh, a cross addiction. A tough one too, beer and egg campers. Hope there are 12 steps between the house and trailer.

My fridge is not propane so I use one tank. And I am looking to put on a bit smaller tank. Tongue weight is an issue for me because I am thinking of using a 70 Bug as a tow vehicle. I do use the propane furnace and it will run forma good amount of time on one tank.

Bernard, you mentioned painting the trailer red. This isn't a U-Haul, but close enough in shape to give you an idea. From HappierCamper.com

If you end up painting (any color) you may want to grind off and fill the verticle seam. AND change the door lockset to something current and readily available.

Well mywife and i are very motivated with that project, we worked all day on it.

I use the top bunk bed to build cushions and bottom plate for the new front dinette.

Made a front table and tablet

Got the fiber shell cleaned out with zep stuff, workd ok but bakng soda worked better.

Removed some stickers.

I!m now working on the electrical and plumbing..what a mess it was!
I decided to make it simple, no internal water tank(more space under the bed) Connection for camping water hookup and a drain going under the camper..we will put a container under the trailer top collect grey water...

Electrical is also a mess, i'm sorting out the system and fixing it up(i'm an electronic tech) should be working nice tommorow, but i have lots of ideas!




The plumbng and electrical was a mess! Already look better!

I don't think grinding off that seam would be a good idea at all. That's where the halves are fastened together. Also was an entry point of a couple leaks on ours because of flaws in the joint. The door lock is of course the old Bargman L300, commonly found on ebay, but very expensive. There is an aftermarket replacement available, but the Uhaul striker plate is unique to them only.

Well, Bob... I wasn't thinking someone would just grind it off and not finish the seam. It would need to be sealed and that would make sure it wouldn't leak again and no more Trim-Lok. Kind of like the members that are grinding off the belly band area of the Trillium.


Jen, did it.... see the direct link here: Rucio's Winter Makeover
