Nope, tried that for a week, got nowhere. Could not have done this job while living in the trailer.

I've been in a motel for two months!

Very nice. I like the rounded corners and clean look.

I hear you about it taking longer than you think. When I started I thought 6 months, 2 years latter it was finished!

Dylan,
Did you give thought to putting a piano hinge and a drop front on the potty cabinet so you can pull it out vs having to lift 4-5 gallons? Just a thought. Nice work though, bet you are anxious to finish the rear now.

Didnt think of that exactly, but did consider a portion that would go down to make room for the flush handle to pull forward. As it is I have to push the potty back to pull that handle out. The top half holds about 2.5 gals of water/blue stuff, the lower about 2.5 gals of "liquid". So shouldn't be much over 20 lbs per half worst case. Theres plenty of room to get a good hold on it, I don't expect it to be too hard to lift.

Thankfully, the rear dinette is mosty staying as is. I did a lot of work under the seats, new plumbing electrical, gas, etc. But the only things I built for the rear were two top shelves and refinished the cabinets, do the dinette is done for now, I will have to open it back up to get the water tank modified to get that working, Im still city water only for now.

The middle has got the AC unit now, but thats only about 80 done, still need to work out the last bits on that. Then theres the new cabinet doors there too, those should be screwed in tonight!

Yep. I've been working nights when it's cooler in the workshop, sleeping in ACed motel.

It's been over 100 many days, some nights the workshop barely gets down to below 90 before sun up. But many nights it's been comfortable working temps.

Sadly, while I'm really close, I don't think I have time to finish the AC in the trailer. And I'll be further North and it'll be closer to fall when I will I think.

Ah well, next summer I'll be set.

Just about ready for the road many details and decorating left to do, but it's basically back together.


Black twisted bars begone!


Top shelves.


I still need the proper hardware for mounting, but there's the desk/table that will be hinged onto the forward central piece.


Still waiting on that stainless stovetop...

The strange pink tone is from the LED light strip, I had it set to a slightly warm color, but my camera picked it up as really red/pink.

I have many ideas, but still not sure how in the world I'll mount those LED strips.

Matching wood trim around the hatch and fan, they will be stained to match the floor eventually.

You can see the bit of wire I've used to hold the shower curtain rods, along the rat fur strips, between the fan and the window curtain rod holders.
