I finally took a few minutes to take some 'basically finished' shots of the interior...
In retrospect, I'm not entirely pleased with how the white fiberglass backsplash for the dinette area worked out... It lines up perfectly with the window but looks awkward with the cushions and table... The table itself is still the ugly one from the previous owners but I haven't gotten around to building a new one yet.
The cooler normally rides on the front rack but lives inside so it doesn't get stolen while the trailer sits on my driveway.
In the corner, I bought a cheap meter from Princess Auto which is for debugging electrical
problems out in the field, but it also doubles as a battery
monitor. It is connected to two banana plugs on the storage compartment (can just barely see them above the cushion) and the meter is velcro'd to the hull liner. Above the meter is the clock/indoor-outdoor thermometer. Next to that is a dual 12v power outlet for charging cellphones, GPS, ipods, etc...
Nothing exciting here. I mounted a fiberglass panel to protect the wood panelling when the gaucho is slid out into bed form. I also added one between the bathroom door and fridge
to accomodate the coat hooks and a handle for my son to stabilize himself when he climbs down the ladder.
I replaced all the lighting
with these truck dome lights
. They're very bright and they're very cheap (about $12ea). They also take standard brake light
bulbs so eventually I can put LED bulbs in if I feel like conserving power. For now, one provides plenty of light
for the dinette or kitchen sink.
A final shot of the kitchen counter. Nothing exciting. Basic white arborite with some oak trim... I cut up an old kitchen cutting board to fit over the stove. Still not convinced of that idea...
That largely fixes the interior. The outside still needs lots of work.
