Now that the first camping trip was completed, I started sanding on the outside of the trailer. When i first cleaned the trailer with a Mr. Clean magic eraser, the paint started coming off showing the beautiful original colours. (cream top, orange bottom) I figured if I actually used real sandpaper it would come off even easier. I was mistaken!

After a day of sanding the attached is the result. I will continue and hopefully get to the original colours in a few days (or weeks).

Also, there are small cracks all over the original gelcoat. I have attached a picture. If I were to paint do I need to fill all these tiny cracks? I also attached a picture of the larger cracks, which I plan on filling.

And I forgot to mention the bed. The IKEA mattress was perfect for me. It was the first time in years I woke up without a stiff back. Sadly our pillow choice was no good and my wife's neck didn't fair as well.

I recommend the IKEA mattress for anyone looking to replace their original foam
