Looks wonderful! What did you do for the seams on the inside before you painted? It just looks so clean and finished! Can't wait to see the next pictures!

Unfortunately, I don't know how the seams were done on the inside. They were done by the PO. I think it's just some "foam" like tape that they put over the seams.

Update, we've picked up the foam, and my girlfriend is sewing up the cushions. I've got everything to hook up the city water and have the propane tanks and holder on the front of the trailer.

I've also picked up an Iota dls45 with integrated charger, but I haven't installed it yet.

Darragh, if I may... wait to apply wax. Fresh paint jobs need to really outgas. You'll know when it's done when you put your nose right up to the paint and breathe in. If it smells like 'paint' it's not ready for wax (hotrod... expensive paint background here....)

Thanks Donna! That is something I did know about paint. What I haven't decided yet, is which kind of wax to use. Any tips?

Here is just a little upgrade that my girlfriend added. The Backsplash! She picked out the colors which I guess tie into the cushion color..

Frankly, I don't think it matters on fresh paint... but, stay away from those silicone-based waxes ... usually called something about 'wet look' or 'once a year...' the important thing about wax is that it's easy enough to apply and remove.. and that you'll DO IT! Plan on waxing (with a good wax) at least twice a year (the last time just before 'winterizing.' From my experience (YMMV) the top and nose section of the trailer need a good wax job more than from the belly band down (that's a once a year job).

Consider waxing the trailer a good exercise plan for the the human body. Don't make it a 'chore' but a fun time... music and a couple beverages of choice.. whether that's green tea or a cola product or beer or... it really doesn't have to be a 'chore.'

Just a little update:
Cushions have been going slowly.
On the inside, I've put up some LED lighting. They are simple stick on puck lights that run off AAA batteries. They can be pushed on, or they are controlled wirelessly by a switch.

Knobs were painted and installed. Water lines were hooked up, Fridge installed but now I have to make a facade to cover up the larger space.
Ikea hanging hooks were also put up on the underside of the cabinets.

Just curious in the earlier photos it looks like you did a lot of work on the outside. Did you take the cupboards off and then reattch them, if so how did you put them back up. just curious. Looks great and i like the paint job.

I like how you've done the puck LEDs on the ceiling, Darragh. May I ask where you found those?

Hi Cheeky,
The puck LED's were purchased from Costco. They came in packs of 4 and operate wirelessly. Up to 20 pucks can be linked to 1 switch! They do take 3 AAA batteries, but I figured in my case it was better than running all that wire..
