Wow - she has come a LONG way from those photos with the ensolite hanging down from the ceiling and the rotten floor all chipped up! that is BRIGHT! interestingly enough our original table top is the exact same color - it really livens up the place.
i was thinking of doing the exact same thing with our interior regarding the killz. does it cover up the fiberglass pattern at all and make it any smoother?
anyway, congrats on a major effort - it looks like you guys really put a lot of work into it and now all you have to do is get out there and enjoy it. you are right ... its the best way to not only learn what you need to add but also i have learned the opposite - what i DONT need for the next trip. too often i pick up all kinds of junk thinking just because its small or "hey this would be perfect for the Play Pac" and not really thinking "yeah, but does serve a purpose?" now i have a growing bin of brand new stuff in my garage that i need to eBay ... but it cuts down on the clutter.
anyway, congrats again - i look forward to hearing your first trip report and seeing photos of DoodleBugOut in all of her camping glory!

Thanks PAul!! It really isnt as bright as it looks in the pics! But it does make the small space seem bigger! Couldnt go to girlie!! so yellow and grey with black and white bedding.
I put two coats of kilz, which i found i could only do with a brush, because of the rough texture. After the 2 coats the walls still felt sticky from the old ensolite. I was worried but decided to go ahead and paint and hope the extra layers covered it. I put on the first coat of interior waterbased paint with ceramic additive in it and once it dried the stickiness was gone! Yeah! I applied a second coat for the additional insulating factor of the additive. The walls are no longer rought to the touch although it is still textured looking. But you can no longer see the fiberglass lines, so to speak. We are very pleased with the outcome.
Still need to do something with the cabinets under the sink. For now I have two small totes with kitchen stuff and Im just gonna hang a curtain with a tension rod to hide it. lol
Still have the column to do to push the ceiling and door up as well.....but that will be after this first trip.

GREAT to see a PP brought back from a poor condition to one like yours.
A tremendous effort with good results. Gives those of us with similar PPs and in poor condition hope. Thank you.

Thanks Paul, it's been fun. Our remodel is not as extensive as some you will see in this forum. We just wanted to make in functional and safe, on a budget. We feel we have achieved that goal. The forum helped alot in where to get started and addressing problems we had no idea how to address. Still have many thing to work on but all in all, she is complete!!

Can you tell if the ceramic additive is making a difference in the temp. of the interior? Your hard work really paid off and now enjoy!

Archie, prior to painting this summer it was typically 20 degrees warmer inside than outside temp. This is with it closed up. Now it is about 10 -15 degrees cooler inside than the outside temp, again still closed up. Pretty good I think, but that is the only comparison I have, as I didnt gauge it last winter. Guess we'll see how well she stays heated this winter. I have extra paint mix and will not hesitate to add more layers....LOL!

That sounds like a pretty good result on the insulation for a paint additive!

What was the ceramic additive and where did you get it? Thanks.

CliveAlive, there is a link in my post on the third page of this message. On my phone and it won't let me copy and past. I bought enough for 2 gala of paint. I put two gals of paint in a 5 gal bucket and then gentle stir in the additive. Can't use a spray gun with the additive... I brushed it on for a thicker coating. I have half left over. So it went along way. Hope that helps.
