Lucky you

Count yourself lucky that you have someone to bump into my friend.

A little more progress to report!

Pic #1: counter top, sink with faucet and cabinet support - all dry fitted

#2: frame for rear hanging cabinet epoxied and glassed into place

#3: the metal drawers were an impulse; not part of the original plan, so I had to work them in. They are also a bit heavy. But, they pull all the way out and should be great for clothing with the addition of drop in baskets that I'll probably make from thin plywood or canvas.

#4: corner closet - hanging clothes in the middle, shoes in the bottom, odds & ends in the top.

Here are a couple of pics of "Shelly", a 13 Scamp which was bought with most of the furniture missing. It was not taken to the level to which you are headed but it may give you a couple of ideas....
Plus i love the name. signed, Shelly

Thank you all for your words of encouragement.
More than anything else - this has been a learning experience, and as I've said before, the rebuilds posted on this site have been an inspiration.

Time for an update

Progress has been slow but steady.
The cabinetry is pretty much done - except for the doors. I may try my hand at Shaker style doors when I finally tackle them.

We decided that the side window at the head of the bed needed to go - so it is glassed in with a section of fiber glass scavenged from the original front closet wall and reinforced with a few ribs for added strength.

To test out my roof 'enhancements' I've dangled my full body weight (almost 2x the weight of the Coleman unit) from the overhead a/c cutout & am 99% sure that they should do the trick. This is all in addition to the factory roof reinforcement - which struck me as pretty inadequate.

The floor is covered with a nice, thick faux cork vinyl remnant that we found locally.

Another update

Looking back over this thread I see it's been almost 20 months ago that I launched this project. Time for another update.

I'm closing in on finishing the basic interior work. The walls are being covered with marine grade vinyl over 5/8" closed cell foam. This has turned out to be a fussy, time consuming job -- but I am pleased with the results so far.

Interior wiring has been run. I decided not to use a convertor. Instead I went with a conventional 30 amp box. The 12v system will be powered by a battery and a trickle charger, with the possible addition of solar in the future.

No indoor cooking . A chuck box is in the plans, sized to store under the bed. The bed is just shy of a queen.

When the head is occupied the door cannot be closed - but in the open position it will provide strategic cover for the user. At least that's the plan.

Some pics:

One more...

The front closet, with its fairly sizable space for hanging clothes. The little black thing to the right of the closet is an LED license plate light, with a rocker switch just above it. My notion of an entry light.
