Can't wait to see what you are doing, Alfredo! I also have carpet (vehicle?) on the walls and ceiling, it will come down next week. I have no insulation - still debating about what to do. Good luck on your job!!

Hi everybody
I prime all the inside with kills but the floor. I do that on saturday
My floor is not bad but Im going to prep it ., litle bit of bondo will work on some areas
Im thinking of using resilient flooring its vinyl but it comes in planks that look like wood. you can get that stuff in home depot . I think is more practical it is a floating floor I just get 1/4 round to holded
sorry about the pictures I just can't upload them.

Barbara,

It might help you to look at a Boler/clone that has the factory Ensolite.

I've seen two different layouts (on different years) for how they cut the panels, but both of them made the panels fit to the shape of the trailer.

To gloss over the details and give you a general idea:

1) A panel does the ceiling and comes down on the sides about to the "edge" of the roof. It tapers, football style, into the front and rear windows where it dies out at the top outside corner of the window.

2) There is a vertical seam near each of the four vertical corners that divides lower panels. That seam goes up until it hits the "football" seam that has come along the ceiling edge.

Raya
Thanks for your response, Raya.
I can't quite visualize the top panel tapering into football style...but maybe it will become more apparent to me when I rip off the shag walls. I'm curious what Alfredo does with his, as he's definitely taking off his wall lining. Maybe I'll write him directly rather than hope he sees my posting...sounds like he might have his hands full with the Perris job and no time to read!!!
Hope to meet you one day, in the 'lower 48'!

Is that a window unit AC on the tongue? Is it vented through the floor or something?

That thread was done back in 2009 and the O.P hasn't been around since last July, so you may or may not get a reply.

I know one member of this forum that mounted a window air conditioner on their tongue in the battery location. He built a fiberglass enclosure to cover the unit, a 5000 BTU unit, venting is thru the back/bottom, water drains out the bottom like usual for a window unit.

Our son's Casita 16 had the front air conditioner that vented thru the front of the Casita. Front air conditioners and our bottom of the closet air cool better with a small fan blowing the cool air about.

These 5000 btu air conditioners only draw about 5 amps.

There are many people who've mounted small air conditioners in various ways in small trailers.

She doesn't.. I posted this egg in the sightings thread last summer after I spotted it in Colorado and Vicky posted that it was owned by someone else
