Well that's up to date, tomorrow we continue the doorway repair/rebuild then onto the windows and the wiring, I picked up the window butal the port-a-potty and the table leg cones that fit into the floor as you can see from the pictures.

It's a lot of work but believe me when I say this is going to be one solid fibreglass travel trailer.

You probably can't tell by the pictures but the Aluminum Foam is carriage bolted through the bluwood strips through the fibreglass floor and through the trailer frame.

I'm pretty sure an elephant could camp in this Beachcomber and not go through the floor LOL.

Talking

Getting more of the interior framing up and the old framing out.

Some of the old wood framing is harder to remove some is easier.


Long weekend coming up so with some luck and good weather should see some good progress made.

Well the ceiling framing is down and both walls are almost completely framed.

Here's some more pictures from work completed today/tonight.

The ceiling framing is completely down and the door side of the trailer now has most of the upper wall framing in place with PL 300 drying.

The ceiling framing and upper walls are completed.

I forgot my camera for today's work but here are the pictures from yesterday.

Plans are to one day install a roof air/heater so you can see we've beefed the ceiling framing up quite a bit these are some of the rough fit pictures the finished ceiling framing pictures will be posted tomorrow.

Also there are some doorway pictures for Michelle and Hubby.
In this post and the next they show how the wrought Iron fits in the doorway.

Ceiling framing complete door test fitted.

That was definitely a lot of work putting the ceiling framing up but on the up side(pun intended) the door fits like a glove just have to find a good inner rubber seal and new fasteners for the hinges and we are off to the races.

Here are the latest pictures.

The Lights the lights.

Well all the wiring is installed and tested for the running lights and brake and turn signals.

Windows are all in and starting to test fit the cabinets.

And these are pictures of what it will look like with the tow vehicle.

It's looking good! Are you going to have it ready for the Niagara Wine Tour in mid-September? It would sure get a lot of attention.

Hi Jim,
I'm not a wine drinker but my wife is and she loves Niagara by the lake.

I'll look into it may be a nice get away.

Any info on the event would be appreciated.

Don't have to Wine and Dine. That's the fun of a Non Organized gathering. Last year my wife and I toured Old Fort Erie and then went antiqueing in Niagara on the Lake. But it is fun to tour a couple of the wineries and see the grape fields and the big houses along the parkway.
OR just hang out.
