Hey Gang,

I finished the fix ups on the Chubby just in time for our Montana vacation. I did a laminate floor, electrical (new battery, cables, terminals, new interior dome light, new wiring), replaced the ceiling and custom built an oak frame around the vent, new drip cap, new exterior porch light, new trim lock gasket for door, repaired stress crack in corner of door with aluminum and then layer upon layer of fiberglass and resin, new tail lights, new water fill, city water intake, sink drain, gas line from tank, a new hitch wiring harness, AND we bought a new tow vehicle (2006 Toyota Tacoma). Whewww!

Wow...that looks great. Can you tell me what you put on the walls and what adhesive you used? Thanks.

On your ceiling you have apparently used a wood grain sheet. Is that 1/8 inch ply, plastic laminate or ?.

Also, how did you secure it in place?
