Did you try looking at Hehr for the windows?

Sliding windows are great until it rains and you don't have gutters.

Yes, I prefer the louvre style, except when running into them while walking around the trailer.

Let me rephrase that, I actually prefer the look and functionality of Jalousie windows and would above all prefer those for the front and rear of my Scamp. I suppose with some much to do to the trailer already I assumed it would be super difficult to find Jalousie windows that would fit.

I also hadn't thought about using some other brand of windows for the front and rear. I may look into what Hehr offers. In the meantime does anyone know about how much they might cost me?

Thx for the link, but OUCH!! Those little ones cost $300 each, mine would need to be twice as large, and perhaps cost twice as much.

I water proofed my floor with 2 coats of Drylok paint. It's made for concrete but some folks use it for waterproofing their wooden homemade lizard cages with excellent results.

I used some vertical shelf hangers in my closet above the AC to hang some 1/2 birch ply shelves. I removed the "front to back" clothes rod from the top of the closest and cut the opening of the closet higher to take advantage of that dead space up there.
I cut out the area inside of the green tape- there is another shelf in that area. I'll also add a lower shelf once I get more lumber to replace all of the cabinet doors.
The photos of the box is there by mistake- while the iPhone app for this forum is great- it crashes and I lose my post if I try to delete a photo while creating a post.

I recieved a late shipment from Scamp- unfortunately the base and flange of Temne toilet was damaged during Ups transit.

The greywater I got from Scamp seems to be in good condition- despite the damaged box.
I marked out some hole for the sink line and vent line, then drilled for them. The entire frame needs to be sanded/brushed and repainted. I'm not ready to do that yet but I did the area around where the grey tank would be to save some hassle.
Ultimately i ended up cutting a rectangle in the floor for the topside of the grey water tank inlets. The flange and silicone sealant on the top of the tank kept it from sitting flush and flat when I only had holes drilled for the pipes.
I used stainless steel screw and washer to attach the grey tank through the outer flange. I'll add the straps when I get home from the beach.

I went to Costco yesterday in F-Burg, picked up a 700W microwave for $50. It is only 17" wide I plan on mounting it in the closet of a S-13 that I am working on. Should fit the standard door opening. I was looking at mounting it up high in the closet and try to use some of that unused space.
Your floor looks great I was just getting ready to paint mine, but could not decide on which paint to use so I may go with the Dryloc. On the walls under the seats I was going to remove and clean up the old foam and cover the wall with the Reflectix® insulation.

Are you reading my mind?
I was considering doing the exact same thing with torn up ensolite under the bench seats. I think it's the way to go. The ensolite under the seats is definitely pretty funk since it doesn't have the acrylic coating on it.

The one down side of the Drylok I've encountered is that it is very rough- seems to have a sand filler. It could tear up your Nuckols if it's not covered.
I read that you get better adhesion if you do coat 1 of Drylok dealt thin on wood- and the wood should be sanded for adhesion.
Drylok is about as thick as Soft serve icecream- and has an ammonia odor like primer- but it's easy apply with a cheap chip brush.
