Look what followed me home! I'm not very good at this picture stuff, so I hope this works. We got home at 2pm, and already part of the floor is up. Those cabinets doors gotta go too!

Thanks gang!! Pulling the floor because.. it felt soft in front of the step up, felt I needed to know what was going on. Besides - they STAPLED the linoleum . I'll probably put down that new vinyl stuff, just put it in a cabin we have, It's a floating floor, so a piece can be replace easily if need be. I'll use the one that looks like pine planks - I think?

Congrats on acquiring a great looking little trailer. The HUGE !! window on the kitchen side is the largest I have ever seen. I think windows make our trailers more liveable and I really do like the one you have ( and am a little envious ). Lee

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!!

Vicki & Aalfredo,
Keep me posted on what you do with your carpted walls, Alfredo. I've got one sitting in my garage, waiting for me to come up with a plan to take down the old shag carpet walls (and here I thought it was original on the Perris until I looked more closely at the original brochure, showing a white ensolite like wall covering and not a horrible rust like shag carpetted wall!).Yesterday, I was looking at another thread on this site, speaking about where to buy new ensolite or some other stuff called vibro foam (maybe I'm not recalling that exact name!). I just can't picture cutting out a rectangle for each of the walls and trying to make those curves fit in the corners. Anybody out there that can help with that? I guess I will use my soon to be torn off shag walls as my template. Hmmmm.
Any help and pictures will be appreciated!
Good luck to all of us!
Barbara

Vickie and Alfredo, You both need to post on the General Chat forum about your "new" egg's so everyone can Congratulate and Welcome you here. (pic's toooooo!)

Unfortunately not all forum members will see your post here on Modifications forum. We all don't have mods to do, so might not frequent this forum so they might miss the chance to say, Congrats! and Welcome.

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.
