outdoor side table

Had this little medallion in the garage, bought some legs at the swap meet for $3 and thought to myself, why not make a small side table.
Just need to paint the legs black. Was going to make something, but this was easier.
Just attach and go....

Should be perfect to hold a couple of cocktails

door trim

Installing new door trim and rubber door gasket ordered from Scamp.
We ordered the "trim" to go around the door, didn't fit, but worked perfectly around the door threshold perimeter. Our door was too thick for the trim.

Looks pretty amazing so far - I've love to see more pictures of the finished kitchen set up, the only ones in this thread were earlier "in progress" shots

Thanks Sarah.

I'll post some "kitchen" pictures soon, well, at least what's left of it
We removed the fridge and stove top/hood, put in a new sink, faucet and small microwave
etc.....
We're going to use a small BBQ for cooking.

We're planning on using the trailer mainly as a tailgater, overnighter and
all around beach hang hangout.

Kitchentte

Here are a couple of quick snaps of the kitchenette Sarah. We only have a sink and a microwave left. Sometimes we'll put a small flat screen T.V. in place of the coffeemaker. The "books" on the little counter are storage boxes I'll use for napkins, keys, misc stuff that tends to get lost when camping....

Sorry the kitchenette is cut in half, I couldn't get it in the same picture and still be able to see any detail. The sun was beating in the garage and I just couldn't take being out there for too long

Still some last minute stuff/details to complete in the inside, should be finished by this weekend. YIPPEE, finally!!!!! My husband and I lived to tell the tale!LOL

privacy for night time

DH fashioned these little clips out of some metal he had and attached them to some the screws that hold the interior beauty ring onto the windows. He then cut a piece of Reflectex to the appropriate size of the window, ran some elastic paratrooper cord to the clips and "woosh," it worked. Holds the Reflectex securely over the windows for night time. Super easy to put up and take down, fits really great.

I adore the aluminum trim on your cabinet doors, and great idea with the reflectix

My scamp had some snap studs already installed around the side and door window trim, so I made "snap on" reflectix shades last summer... super easy, and VERY effective. I still need to install some studs on the trim around my escape hatch when I put the trim back up so I can easily do the same there as well.

I don't mind the the short pile hulliner for the walls, but wasn't keen on it for the ceiling. Hulliner will be a "fallback" for the ceiling, but still open to alternatives for the ceiling.
Your windows were out when you put the fabric on the walls? We're ready for this step in the gutted Scamp we bought in November 2014 and I'm still so on the fence about this.... I hope to get an estimate from an upholstery shop in the next week or so (we've been playing telephone tag) but I *think* we could possibly do it ourselves--if we just took it up to--but not under--the gaskets around the windows. I keep wondering if there's another/better alternative than rat fur or hull liner. The insulation is still on the walls and ceiling.

Sharon, we went through the whole "rat fur/ hulliner" debate too, been there, done that.
We settled on the short pile hulliner and I actually like it now, it looks very "pro" in my opinion. We do have the faux ceiling tiles, so far so good with that.

All of the windows were out except for the large front and back plexi windows (both the front and back windows already had the new rubber gaskets that we recently installed a couple of months prior). I am finishing the front and back today. I rolled under the hulliner along the outer edge of the rubber gaskets, looks nice, neat and even, I was very surprised. I will leave them alone overnight to take shape and then glue them sometime tomorrow. There is no way that my husband nor myself could have gotten the hulliner under the rubber gaskets, that would have been a nightmare. Maybe there is someone out there that has the skill or technique to put the rubber gasket over the wall covering, but that "someone" was not us.

The windows on this little camper have been a thorn in our sides

Thanks so much for the reply! I was just out sitting in the Scamp, pondering options! There's still some rat fur stuck around the back windows that needs to be trimmed off and as thick as it is, I just don't think I'd have success putting that up. The hull liner that I've seen (on how-to-install videos) seems to be thinner and maybe even a bit stretchier or more forgiving.

But while sitting there, contemplating how I'd tackle this project, I decided that I could probably do it. We're already over-budget (with so much yet to do!) and doing it ourselves would certainly cost less than paying an upholstery shop to do it! So ready to be past this particular part of the re-do!

We ordered our hulliner from "Perfect Fit" on the web. We used the grey geometric, it's a shorter pile, there are other colors as well. We ordered 14 linear yards ( 13' Perris Pacer) and had some left over. We did not make a mistake while installing, if we had, it might have been close depending on the error. The "geometric" does have a slight grain, a front and a back as well. It wasn't that bad to install over the Reflectex, was actually a bit forgiving, it was a two person job.

As far as over budget, YUP!!!LOL

I think that "over budget" must be the standard for ANY type of renovation project! I'll check out the website. :-)
