It's been a much bigger project than we anticipated, but we are finally done. We purchased our Li'l Bigfoot in August of last year knowing that it would need quite a little work. We just returned home from a short maiden camping trip and it was all worth it. Please view a slide show of our finished project HERE!

We had planned to attend the NOG get together near Albany, OR later this month, but family obligations have changed our plans, so enjoy the pictures and we will see you all down the road. Roger and Bonnie Miller

Very nice!! I think you mentioned that table before, but was it stock or something you built? I like it. I'm very impressed with the whole job!

The table was purchased at an RV interiors store near Vancouver, WA. It did require a little modification to fit the curve of our trailer wall.

WOW!! Fantastic job! You have all the tools and space to carry this off. That's phenomenal. All the different procedures that go into the remodel: welding, painting, carpentry, body work, wiring, upholstry, everything! You probably did the car too?
Great slideshow! Very professional.

ps What do you think about this. I was told by Marine West that one should fiberglass body repairs and not Bondo them because Bondo isn't waterproof like fiberglass, so any chiping (especially up front) of the paint will allow water to get to the Bondo and cause more paint peeling. What do you think?

Absolutely amazing job! Love the interior decoration and colors you chose, and your trailer looks like a palace with all those mod's.

Thanks for sharing!

Wow! Kudos to you, Roger and Bonnie.

What a beautiful remodel. The love and attention to detail shows through. I'm sorry that you won't be at the nog this month. I would love to see your finished project in real time. Enjoy!

Bonnie & Roger,
What a project! Inspiration & perspiration prove to be winners again.
I suspect 99 out of 100 of us are also envious of your "remodel" facilities. Having the right tools and a place to accomplish the job make the tasks so much easier to accomplish.

Enjoy the fruits of your labors,

Kurt & Ann K.

We used the term Bondo as a generic caption on the picture. I agree with the Marine Co. when doing any large or structural repairs. What I used instead of Bondo was a epoxy body filler used for skimming over rock chips before applying the paint on a car. It has always worked well in the past. I even secured some wood blocking to the inside of the hull on my fiberglass boat using auto body filler aprox. 20 years ago and it is still holding on with no paint on it. I used the body filler like you would use construction adhesive for paneling. For the fiberglass repairs I found that the fiberglass gel resin worked well with the matting on the vertical surfaces, since it doesn't run as bad as the regular resin.
