This is the trailer I bought.
I need to have room for my son and a 50 lbs Boxer/Fencejumper mix dog. So, I ripped out the bathroom mod performed by the previous owner. It was well done. However I noticed that the OSB under the front was not coated by resin. The top was well covered by fiberglass and resin. There were several pieces of the OSB which had flaked off of the bottom.
I did not want to build over the existing floor only to have it rot out in a few years. Also the curbisde piece had one miss cut hole, patched with an aluminum plate, and the hole for the black water drain of the toliet previously installed. In the process of removing the OSB, I'm pretty sure that I cut through the tabs holding the fibergalss to the shell.
On the list for tomorrow is to finish removing the OSB at the front. I have already purchased 1/2 inch exterior grade plywood and the resin to coat it. I'll cut and dry fit the plywood, coat it in resin and then install it using fiberglass tape to subsitute for the cut away tabbing. I'll use stainless steel screws to screw it down.
My next delimia will be to decide whether or not to rebuild the front buk system or try something like this:
The black rectangle is the current stove top, the square to curbside is a new sink 15x15 inches. The open bay underneath the stove is the room for my Engel MT 45 12VDC/120VAC compressor type fridge
. There is room for a four inch deep drawer underneath the fridge
. On the street side is a 28 inch mattress with crib type bar to keep my son safe. The open area furthest forward would probably be closed off until my son needed the legroom. The upper cabinets are the existing Scamp
ones. The large curved piece is there to provide support for the shell and provide a bit of visual separation from the rear bed.
The main driver behind this is the size of my Engel fridge
; it won't fit under the Scamp
cabinets. The drawbacks are that the configuration will only sleep three people; a new child would mean a new trailer. On the upside there will be more storage and more counter space.
The alternative is to build my own front couch and bunk bed system.
I'll get some pictures posted later.
