What a wonderful job you did! This couldn't be the first time you did something like this. I especially like the way you modified things to fit your style rather than remaining a slave to the original design.

Note for Jim

Hello,
I see I forgot to tell you that the foam insulation sheets with the silver lining at the big box store can easily be cut to size to tightly fit inside your window to block out sun and dust at Burningman. Light, and easy to make.

Meanwhile, Lilly the ladybug is now on the road with new LED running lights, LED interior lights, solar on the roof and a new fantastic fan.

I'm going to interpret your question as "Do you cut the sheets..."
My jalousie windows have a fair amount of aluminum frame that sticks inside my trailer. I cut the sheets to fit the inside and fit tightly in the frame.
YMMV.

Thanks for finding those Thomas. They were the original pictures for my boler American. My restoration is here:

Thomas, thanks for posting. Oftentimes some of the most prolific posters (with great ideas) disappear after a time. Your "Skimp" trailer is one of the best of the best!

How did you fill the revit holes. Was there much fiberglassing you had todo. If so how. We are in the same situation now that you were in.

I really love the PC-11 marine 2 part epoxy paste for filling holes.
It turns white when dry too. Sandable even. Highly recommend.

Thomas, glad you couldn't get a "spanking new trailer" because you're creativity is wonderful! On the Skimp I really like the exterior paint and the faucet window opener. Did you have to make any modification to install the faucets in place of the crank handles?
