The vinyl insert is readily available at your local rv supply, or the intrawebs.

Ive now patched one crack in the body in the rear... however, the whole body of the trailer is sagging down over the frame. I jacked up in the rear to try and reverse the sag... it just did not want to go. So, I went to the garage and found all my old weights and some large rocks in the yard. Piled them up on the inside of the trailer and jacked up on the outside.

It seemed to work, just not 100% I was able to get most of the sag out of the body, but not all of it. Any suggestions?

Put the vinyl flooring in and the closet. Advice: don't take the closet out. It's really hard to get back in right.

It's actually a peice of 3/4" Douglas fir plywood stained charcoal Gray. The stain turned out almost blue on the wood for some reason. Then some iron on edging and about 6 coats of varathane. Basically, it's what I had left over from doing the floor in the trailer.

So... It's been two whole years! I finished the interior of the trailer... We had a beautiful baby boy... And got to use the trailer once... Finally got the chance this year to tear the ceiling out of the trailer and fix the sagging roof issue that has bugged me. Just finished the roof last night and need to put the panelling back up. I also found a great way to remove those 40 year old decals!!
