Been reading your blog because we are redoing the inside walls of our 73 Trillium. We have opted for carpet and purchased the shag carpeting yesterday at Home Depot. You mentioned "backless" carpeting. What is that? And I still have not gotten an exact adhesive to use. Brush it on? Spray it on? georgia

Hello, The backless carpet is something a carpet installer had mentioned to me. I have'nt seen it but it sounds like it is a outdoor/ indoor thin carpet he has. I would still use the 3m super strength 90 spray to put it up. I'm new at this so any thing I do is going to be trial and error sort of thing.

Hello Bryan, I just noticed this post, I am refurbishing a Captain as well. I gutted the interior and replaced half of the floor boards. ( Lots of leaks through the marker lights ) I started to line the interior but had to put the trailer away untill the weather warms up. We are using indoor/outdoor carpet, on my last trailer (Cadet) I tried to glue it with a spray on glue which was a failure due to the residue of the foam we scraped off the walls. We then switched to a good quality carpet glue which worked great, this is what I am using now.

I just purchased what I think is a "Captain". Is it?

I was thinking on sanding the interior walls and painting them. Should I be looking at covering them?

Hello Donnie, Sorry for the late response but I have'nt checked the forums in awhile . I do think the unit you have is a Captain, How ever there is a little brother to it called the cadet witch is a bit smaller. I am in the middle of putting up reflectix insolaton on the walls with 3m HI-Strength spray adhesive then I have to make a choice for the walls. I personally would put up a type of insolation and cover over it like fabric or carpet. I am looking at the paper idea still. Soon as the weather gets a bit warmer I can get back to it full speed ahead, summers a commin! Thanks Bryan
