here are some shots of the progress on the interior. Have the top cabinet to rebuild and hang and some more trim to do. I went to buy the corner moldings and almost had another heart attack, 8 pieces of 8' molding were more than all the wood used so far, $153. I will be making my own thank you! Its getting there slowly but surely. Sorry for the mess.

Imagine if it were cedar. Mmmmmmmm. Cedar is one of my favorite scents.

I agree with you about the cedar but it was 3-4 times the price and we went through 18 packages of pine so far. It was cabin grade(b grade) and was only about $6.50 a package. The pine has its own charm.

Its Spring! Finally got back to finishing the trailer. Made up a new counter top and table top. Added a drop leaf counter top extension and shortened the table by 7" to allow for easier access to the seats. I have made up a bed extension to make up for the shortened table. All the 12v power is hooked up, now for a battery mount on the tongue.

Yes I guess you could call them an "upgrade". The neighbor upgraded his trailer to 15" and gave me 4 of these. They are just the standard white spoke 13" trailer tires but they look a lot better than the old ones.
