It was a foam roller. I'm going to get some floetrol before the last coat and see what that does. It's ridiculous that it takes this much to get paint to work anymore. Somehow I wonder if using 5x as much of it is any more friendly. Pretty soon spraying will be the only option.

It's still not right, but the Floetrol helped. I give up, it's a camper, time to move on. It matches great, at least. The paint looks darker in the picture than it is.





It's not dry enough for the trim, yet. Tomorrow I'll start the other side. I want to get that and the cabinets in the bunk painted before I do the carpet. I try not to tempt Murphy.

Ok, I lied. I put part of the carpet down, I'll just cover it to do the cabinets. I need to order new screw washers/caps from scamp, and don't want to wait to do the carpet.



I'm going to take the trim off the other support and prime/get one coat of paint on it tonight.

Thanks, and thanks. I have one by me, I'll check them tomorrow. I'm hoping I can just loosen the screws for the cabinets enough to drop them down and get painters paper behind them without removing them, as I'm doing all of this on my own, and can't imagine mounting them back up by myself. If I can do that, I'll just put new caps on one screw at a time.

The carpet squares are a hair different color (different box), but not enough that I care for a camper, especially since 95% of the carpet will be covered by the cushions 95% of the time.

I found lots of (what I'm pretty sure is) mold where scamp ran the carpet so far up the walls. I don't think the windows leaked, I think it's from the ensolite sweating and being covered by the carpet pad. That's why I made mine much shorter, even though a few stains show.

I'm tired of moving stuff around the camper, I want to get the carpet done, the support and cabinets painted, so I can just pile all the cushions up there and quit moving stuff. The only other thing to do will be curtain rods. If I find caps at Ace, I might install them before putting stuff back up there, also.

I'm giving dad measurements for the cabinet doors tonight, and making a paint sample to send to mom so she can get material for curtains and make them for me.

I found some metallic *gasp* silicone, and filled the horrid gap under the sink.





I found a shelving unit, cut a hole for the light switch box, and put it in. I also put a double coat hook in, so a few things can still be hung up. Other than a coat or two, I have no need to hang things up. I'm not taking my suit and tie camping.



I removed the trim, sanded, primed, and got one coat of paint on the other support. I should be able to put another coat on before work, and put the trim on after work, and go back to the carpet.

Closet looks nice did you cut it out, it looks a bit wider? I put a couple of hooks above to the right of the exterior door (entering) by the bunk.

When I took my sink out I was surprised to see that the fiberglass counter conforms to the bottom of the sink. A lip rises up about 1/4 inch so that it doesn't leak.

On the black stains on the ensolite I used "Clorox spray on cleaner" and let it sit for a few minutes. It took it right off but don't get it on any fabric or it will bleach it out. Kills any mold though.

Hey guys. I found white epoxy floor paint at HD. It was about $30 a gallon. Last time I painted a floor I could only find gray epoxy. I plan on putting the back end together today. I finally got all the parts lined up. My big issue is how to cover the wall table board. I had to cut the ensolite away 2" around the board to make the repair. I covered it already with refletix and plan to use a light ID/OD tan carpet.

The cabinet opening is stock. I thought about hooks above the couch, but it wouldn't be handy with the screen door there.

I got all the black stains off. There are orangeish stains from the carpet backing still there. I used bleche-white tire cleaner on it, worked great for the rest of the stuff. I'm guessing the orange stains aren't going to come out. Everywhere else, it cleans the ensolite very well.

I need to find some ensolite, I need to remove the piece under the rear window, and replace it.

Awesome, thanks. I really didn't want to replace it with something else. I think I'm the oddball that still likes the stuff.

I like Ensolite, too, mostly for its washable qualities. I like to hose the trailer out periodically...
I'm sorry that Tom doesn't carry it in the original color that matches older Trilliums like mine, though. Good thing for me that mine's still in good shape...
