One step closer to an air-conditioned UHaul for the Nauvoo trip. It took 3 men to lift it up there. The hubby keeps commenting in how well the UHaul was built to hold this air conditioner.

Yeah! Kevin built in the furnace, fixed the hinge on the bathroom door, the TV, finished off the 'fridge, and added carpet this weekend (And, I think I forgot one or two things.). So, now it seems so cosy. We can add decorations and load up for the first trip. However, that first trip has to wait until after our daughter's graduation day.

What an incredible job you have done !! Superb workmanship and a flair for creativity. You inspire me to get going on mine. A cozy little home away from home.

Miabella:

We bought the VT in Arkansas off ebay. It was not real bad, at least not when you look at some of the trailers that have been redone by folks here. It needed cleaning, a new carpet, the cushion covers cleaned, leaks fixed, a furnace and air conditioner added, propane reconnected, and a few other things done. We still plan to work on the outside, that is, Kevin will. We plan to redo the stripes. Now we have to load it for Nauvoo.

Yup, Gina, I bought the soap dispensers, hand towels, and garbage cans are from Wally World. The placemats are from Kohl's with matching kitchen towels I have not brought out yet. The curtains are from Target, with modifications by me. I added the buttons and put in pleats and added ties to reduce the width. The quilt is from Sears.
Not sure where the TV is from, probably Circuit City.

We put in the cushions tonight and hung the towels in the bathroom. (Psst, did you hear that? A bathroom!)

The 10" LCD TV/DVD/Radio is a Polaroid from Circuit City. I believe it cost about $350 last summer when we purchased it for our original trailer. It works great in the trailer and I'm hoping to get an outside antenna installed soon. Right now we have just been watching DVDs and local TV stations in Chicago!

It is a vent.

I am trying to figure what else to do with the bathroom; the walls seem so blank. Found a TP holder, stick-on soap holder, and plastic mat to stand on, but since the theme has kind ot turned Southwestern, I was looking for shower-safe wall things that go with these theme. If anyone has a source, please pass it on..

I will go take a picture today, but the latch came with the trailer. We changed out the fridge, as the one that came with the trailer was just a small dorm one.
It is a child's safety latch, the kind we used for cupboards when the kids were babies. Kevin drilled two holes in the door of the fridge and then just hooked the latch over the door. I will tell him to add details.

To answer a couple questions:

The ceiling vent in the bathroom is a simple push-up/pull-down mechanism. You push it up to ventilate the room and pull it down to seal the vent. I plan to use this as our "open window" when using the Wave 3 cat heater.

The refrig door lock is simply a child-proof plastic lock that is used on kitchen cabinets. It had been added by a previous owner, so I adjusted it to work with our larger fridge. It is designed to keep the door from bumping open while traveling. I'll attach a close-up of it when I get home later today.

Great job you guys

I too, was a little thick and took a bit to realize that the hot water heater came with my external shower - love that hot water out of the sink first thing in the morning!

Great decorating ideas too!
