finishing windows

Today I'm finishing the windows inside.
Just adding a little "pizzaz" with fringe. Hum, fringe looks brownish
in the picture, it's actually silvery.

Sharon, why not call Scamp? They are pretty nice there, you could ask them about how many linear yards of wall covering you'll need.

I did call Scamp a couple of weeks ago and they apparently quoted the amount in square yards, not linear, so it was probably double the amount! I think someone said it would be about 18 yards (and not the 36 I was quoted).

That sounds about right (18 yds) for a 16'. Even if you ordered a couple of extra yards, the worst thing that could happen would be that you'd have a little extra.

Thanks Sharon

So glad we put in that fan, made all the difference in the egg.
Lucky for us, a good friend removed the fan from their brand new RV
and gave us the fan. It even has a remote control. LOL

I used a spray paint meant for plastics and spray painted the beauty ring, it
blended nicely with the tiles.

The fabric arrived today and I need to figure out where I can store it until we're ready to start putting it up.

Since you recently did this, have to ask--what was the longest length of material that you put up at one time? I'm sure it's best not to have pieces and parts all over, but the thought of running long lengths of it is still pretty intimidating!

Sharon, from the top of the benches to the center part of the ceiling. Since our egg is only 13', all of the walls have either a bench, cabinet etc....there are no lower open areas. (I recall that you have a 16') We would glue down about 1/4 to 1/3 length of the hulliner at one time, get that installed and then continue up the length of the hulliner applying the adhesive as we went along, we wanted as few seams as possible so we used the longest length as required. If we had to go from the base of the floor to the center of the ceiling, I'm sure we would have been able to do so. Just keep an eye on the fabric "grain" (if you have one) and also the front and back sides of the fabric.
Before you begin your project, make sure you have thought about the way you want your seams to be finished as well. It would be a shame to get the fabric installed and come up short on the seams.

Thanks! I'm hoping we'll be ready to do this within the next week or two. I think it will look really nice.

But good to hear about doing a section, then gluing another part of it to keep going with longer lengths. I was envisioning having a 10 ft piece of fabric on a tarp in the yard and trying to get that into the trailer and into place!

1st trip- Campland, Mission Bay

Finally finished, inaugural camping trip for our little egg! Pismo South Vintage Trailer Rally held this weekend at Mission Bay, San Diego. Had a great time, everyone was so nice and friendly

Notice the porta-potty (right corner), for a joke, our friends made us a little end table for our cocktails! Don't worry, it had never been used LOL

The second picture is it's new home when we're not using it, doesn't
it look sad

Let the camping begin! Woo hoo!!!!
Thanks to everyone on this FG website for all your help, so very kind!

You can do it Sharon! You can fit the material multiple times before you glue it down and then trim to fit as needed.
