Kit on the inside

I only have two photos of Kit's interior, but here they are:

After a bit more cleaning, I get to start tearing things out! (I love tearing things out.) PO2 did some things I really dislike! The wood molding will probably go first, because it's badly installed, broken in several places, and is driving me nuts. The hole for a television will have to be closed; luckily, the fiberglass cut from that is now adorning a closet shelf. I want to slide the upper cabinets out and get them cleaned up; they're edged with some kind of thick, unsightly caulk at present. The stove hood has to go, and the stovetop needs to be replaced ( the photo doesn't show the warping, dents, and general grubbiness). The ceiling strip is a nasty bit of carpet. The floor carpet is tolerable for a while, but I want hard flooring.

All that with no major design changes!! This year, the plan is to proceed with changes slowly, so I can still go camping. Can't lose sight of the original purpose!

I can tell that the front bunk has been removed. I did the same thing and used the bunk's cushion for the bottom bench. The skinny 'back cushion' is what you used to have to sit on when the bunk was in the 'down' position. It was a very narrow uncomfortable bench with the bunk down.
If you remove the hinge under that front window, you can put a small catch-all shelf there. Or totally remove the entire 'bump out' which takes a bit of pulling and prying, and you'll have a rounder front wall. But you'll have some exposed raw fiberglass to deal with, just like on what the upper ceiling headliner covers.

I have a full set of neutral color beige curtains that campe with my UH, that I want to get rid of cheap, if you want them. They're great for the first year or two of camping when you're still figuring out what you want to do in the camper.

These trailers are notorious for leaking windows, so you might need to cover it if its' stored outside. And keep an eye on your cushions in case they're getting wet, you'll need to move them away from the windows. just one of the quirks of our little egs

ooooh, looks like you have liners in your upper cabinets? Do you also have them in your lower floor storage cubbies?
