HI I did the t strip on Sunday it looks much better. Now. We have been trying to glue a round corner of the elephant skin which has bubbled out. My husband used contact cement and I stretched the skin with my hair dryer (I am a Stylist) it looked like it was going to work pressing it in with a bowl. The next day the elephant skin was unglued except for the edges. Are there any suggestions?

You may need to find a way to keep pressure on the area until it is completely cured. Maybe try bracing something up against it

If you used contact cement you may not have waited for it to dry enough. When properly dried it is not particularly tacky to touch except for another piece also dried, then they bond instantly and permanently! You will not re-position it after it touches if it is correctly dried.

We camped in her the long weekend and loved every moment! No leaks, stayed warm at night and cool during the day! We were supposed to camp again last weekend but found some serious electrical problems that will be fixed this weekend. Then there's no stopping us!

Canadian Tire carries several different types of it.

This looks great! I'm new to the forum, so likely have missed a million discussions on this topic, but what did you use for the underlay? And is it attached to the fiberglass floor somehow, or truly "floating"? Our "new" 1976 Trillium 1300 has some very, VERY old and dusty orange felt carpet that need an overhaul.

I used a thin thermal foam under the flooring. It is truly a floating floor.

It was so great meeting you and Jill and Oliver on the weekend in Kinbrook!
Great to see your little Trilly, I always get super over excited when I see another Trillium in the campground or on the road!
Have a great camping season!!
