You can tell from looking at ours that the wood around the windows is rotted and when wet it got quite water logged.. when I did the leak test the wood stayed perfectly dry.

Thanks Pam! the plan is to take all the baskets off when travelling.. Can't wait to get out in her.
Now to find an awning.. any suggestions for something that won't break my pocket book and that I don't have to make myself?

Huge THANKS to Jim for the seat cushion templates.. worked like a dream!
One thing you could do Lyndsay, is to just do one window at a time. This would allow you to get it done in a couple hours, unless you had to replace the wood backer too.

And no problem regarding the template. I hope it can help others too.

The wood backer definitely needs to be done too.

That would add to the work, but you could easily do one in a day, and it would give you an idea of what you are looking at.

I just worry that once started it wouldn't get finished in a day. Steve can sometimes be hesitant and slow when working and it's just a big unknown. I'd rather wait until we have the time to do it without the stress of it having to get done in a day... Unless you are offering Jim!

Everything looks great on your trilly Lyndsay - Did some test painting on my ensolite today and I'm pleasantly surprised at how nicely it stuck so I'm going ahead with that plan. I like your backsplash idea...may steal that myself!! I also am going to replace my T-moulding with white - will look better than the old ripply dark cream that is there now! Has anyone pulled out the shelving over the dinette area and replaced it - would be interested in how that looks!

Worked really well. Needs to be quiet soft though. I made the mistake of boiling it all at once in two pots and then taking them out to the trailer and fiddling around trying to figure out where all the pieces went again. By the time I got to the last few pieces the water was luke warm and the moulding was a bit tricky to work with.
