Canadian Flag

I have to ask. Why the Canadian flag when you live in North Dakota?

Great job! Just at the beginning of mine the trailer is off the frame right now. Couple of questions; did you paint the trailer off the frame and if not how did you do the underside Also I am planning to reuse the Jalousie windows as well where did you find the replacement window gaskets for the glass panels.

Hi Jen,

Looks like you have done a great reno! I don't know if you have seen my trailer on your search of this site (you can find it here Our '76 Trillium finally done! I can't believe how close your color is to ours. I think it looks great. Here is a photo of our trailer. I sure hope you enjoy your camper and also all the questions you will get.

I love it, can't believe how close in color it is to mine. I wasn't able to open the link but from the two pics you attached it looks great. Really nice quality renovation. I love the matching canoe.

I did have the camper off the frame to paint the frame but I had to put the camper back on the frame to move it for painting so it was on the frame when painted. I taped up the frame really well and was able to get a nice paint job up to the frame but the square section within the frame underneath is not painted just original avacado green fiberglass. The painting is the only thing I didn't do myself, all I did was the prep.

I'm actually a Canadian and I painted that on years ago but I married my american husband in 2010 and moved to North Dakota with him. I wanted to keep the flag anyway.

I forget where I bought the gaskets but Vintage Trailer Supplies carries them.
