Nice job so far! Too bad about the laminate floor. There are water resistant ones now, but linoleum (or vinyl) is good if you put in a good backing.
In our past 1993 L'il Bigfoot
, my wife found the floor 'wongy', and not as solid as an earlier Trillium
. Also, in the LB, we found the original flooring got scratched, and the paper decorative pattern got water into it and discoloured in several places. That trailer had a few little (pun) problems with that floor.
The 1993 Bigfoot
17CB that we now have seems to have none of those issues.
I look forward to future pictures of your ongoing reno - and good luck.

Since these photos, I've decided to remove the laminate and replace it with a wood-grained linoleum. I got a bit of moisture inside from the wash prior to paint
prep (no windows) and it all swelled. Not a good sign of things to come in a trailer. I didn't want to be panicking anytime something spilled.
Anyway, the walls are all relined with the famous 'rat fur'. I found a local supplier a stones throw from my house.
I've just completed rebuilding the cabinet frames for the lower half of the trailer so I can start my wiring. New LEDs are fastened and ready for power, and I'm rebuilding the doors currently. The frame for the kitchen cabinet is assembled and almost ready to screw in place....I'll upload more pics soon for anyone interested.
