Mmmm, think I'll stick to wood. The first sheet lasted 40 years! Got the first patch in tonight.

Couldn't figure out how else to clamp it. Can't put screws in it. You know what would work great? A waterbed mattress. Wish I had one laying around.

A bunch of 5 gal pails?

Looks good.

Thanks. Last night I had to add another ply of 5mm to compensate for the gelcoat layer, I weighted it with three group 31 batteries.

5 gallon buckets would work, but all the ones I have are full of and/or covered in some kind of oil. Messy!

How about bags of concrete? Hmmm.

I intended to add the finish layer of plywood to the floor tonight, but the (probably too thick) layers of 'glass from yesterday weren't fully dry. There was also some puckering at the thickest joint, so I decided to let that fully cure before covering.

I sanded the rest of the floor just to knock down the 'boogers', and coated the bottom of the fridge cabinet with resin.

Maybe that will let it shed whatever water gets in there.

The old carpet really helped as a template. There ain't nothing square about an egg!

Dry fit. Just a couple of adjustments, then glue it up!

600# of concrete mix, 2 batteries and several 2x2s propped to the roof. I hope that makes it bond void-free. I used 3 large tubes of polyurethane adhesive, buttered and troweled on the substrate and on the back of the finish subfloor. Click image for larger version

GA: Trillium 1300 DE-alteration

I bought a sheet of marine grade 3/4 plywood to use for the window strips. Went ahead and ripped enough to do all of the openings. Click image for larger version

Can anyone tell me what kind of screw works best? I'm thinking #10 x 1"?

After scraping all of the old sealer off, a Scotchbrite pad and some acetone really cleaned the aluminum nicely.

Tightened the screws in several progressive steps, kinda hard to know where to stop squishing. Click image for larger version

Or how to finish off that mess afterward. I trimmed it up, but the following day it had oozed more.

Meanwhile, work continues on the floor and front dinette. Click image for larger version

Made removable floor sections for the corners, just in case we need access. The body bolts are under there!

Since the battery converter/ wiring/ gas line are all right there on the side of the fridge, i put a curb on that floor piece to guard the works. Click image for larger version

Here's a semi-finished view. Haven't got the table engineered yet, for this trip it will still be a gaucho with a gap.

I am impressed!


I can't tell if you did front dinette in fibreglass, or wood. Looks like glass. Any plans to put a door on the seat nearest the trailer door? That is were Trillium puts what they call the porta potty garage.

I love the phrase "Gaucho with a gap". I will remember that years from now when I get around to my front dinette mod. I can say; "I am doing a front dinette mod, but so far all I have is a Gaucho with a gap".
