Notorious BIG's first trip! Still needs work, but she's capable!

We bought Notorious B.I.G. Back in February, and thought she didn't need much work ..... Wrong! The bunk had been torn out and needed to be rebuilt, the stove had to be replaced as the previous owner left a propane leak with his installation . We resealed two windows, had all systems serviced, cut out some wood rot, rebuilt the bunk, and repainted over the horrible existing paint job! Phew! Lots of work! There is still some work to do, but we camped in her for 5 nights, all 5 of us. Here she is in all her glory!!

Ps... I meant "camp-able" not capable, but that too!!

Thanks everyone! She's a 1981 17 ft Bigfoot.... There's still work to do, as always, but she's useable. The guy we bought her from was not very forthright with the condition of it, but live and learn. Here in cowtown, these sell quickly in almost any condition....

I think you have done very well. The design scheme is very relaxing.

Where is your fabric store? Love the calm colors, it makes it fresh and cozy at the same time. Beautiful job!

Good for you! Love the way you've decorated it!!! No bathroom anymore? What's behind the curtain? A clothes closet?

Thanks! There is still a bathroom behind the curtain! I actually have since replaced with a dark Aqua to keep light out in early morning. We have three small children who struggled with the door ( it's stored safely though), and made lots of noise getting in and out so we went with a curtain instead. Works out well! We only use it for early morning #1's though ... . You'll have to go for a hike if you need #2... House rules...
