dry rot....

Hi there,
You mentioned replacing panels that had dry rot. Was the floor still solid with no rot issues? You didn't have to do any repairs there?

The floor had no dry rot, so just replaced the wall panels that needed it with 1/8 inch birch.

I really like the new bright interior. I'm seriously thinking of doing something similar with my Scamp. You're motivating me!

Donna, Thanks for the compliment. When I first saw my Bigfoot as well as other older eggshells, my first thought was to brighten it up. It takes a little time and effort but in the long run I think I made the right choice. Having the 7 LED lights are great as they give off so much light.
I am seriously considering selling it in the fall when I complete my two volunteer music festivals on Vancouver Island. It was a fun project, took about 4 months but with the help of the forum, here, as well as your input, I really enjoyed working on it.
Jim

Hey Jim,
Nice job. Trailer looks great. Could you tell me where you bought the LED directional lights from. I have been looking for replacements for our 21 footer and haven't found any that look as good as yours.
Thanks Rick

The lights were bought on E bay Its the first item on the page. They give lots of light as well. I asked for fast shipment from Hong Kong and recd it in 4 days, and paid $15 customs and shipping to Canada...not bad at all...would definitely recommend them...I ordered the warm white light. Jim

Jim, I notice in your posts you mention using the correct glue to fix the wood paneling to the foam on the ceiling. I am currently purchasing a 1985 bigfoot 17 that the front ceiling panel has delaminated and want to put it back up. What kind of glue did you use and how did you prop up the Panel? Thanks in advance, I'll be a newbie trailer owner and new to this forum.

adhesive

I used the adhesive that states it bonds wood to foam..lepages i believe....i only did side panels and screwed a small piece of wood on either side to hold panel in place then after it dried removed the wood and filled in the holes. Hope this helps
