We have a paint design in mind and I'm thinking paint with decals would be the way to go, or a vinyl wrap but that could be too expensive.
Hello and welcome!
Not metallic paneling, just birch plywood stained with mixture of stains I threw together and varnished several times.
The window frames were stained to give a 'weathered look'. Can't see them really in any of these pics but it looks great. Still not sure if I'm going to keep it or not.
I have to be honest with you.... I don't know a lot of what was originally in my trailer, as it was an empty shell when I bought it, but I know some did come with fiberglass cabinets and apparently you can put them back in. I used a combination of pine and cedar framework. Fiberglass "Tabbed" my whole interior so I would have something to attach the cabinets to. My interior is fairly light
. I know these surfsides were rated to weigh about 1500lbs when filled and ready to go.
Hope this helps... There is so much info on this site to help you out. I knew nothing originally and pulled a lot of ideas and solved a lot of problems by perusing the threads.
