Almost there

After a number of delays and life created distractions we are "this close" to being finished with the floor reno. (that has not, howsumever. stopped us from 2 Scamping trips once the flooring was secured to the deck with strips of 2 sided carpet tape.)

What's left is to get the chases complete that cover and protect the newly relocated water and electric.

The wooden cubby you see is functional in two ways....I am short and need assistance getting on the bed and it houses my shoes so they are not scattered willy-nilly across the minimal floor space.

We had originally planned to use Action Packers under the bed, but they cost nearly $20 each. At Lowe's one afternoon we found these for about $5 each. The front 2 will store linens and such. The back 2 will be for seasonal rotation of clothing and bedding once we are on the road more than home. 4 for $20 vs 4 for $80 was a no-brainer for us.

In the end, I love this floor and am glad we replaced the carpeting even so it was a bigger project than we intended. It adds a sort of beachy look I like in addition to the easier maintenance.

Next is visual cabinet updates.

Happy Scamping...


#1 - after hatches but before water/electrical were raised to accommodate the hatches.

#2 - rough, but getting there.

#3 - the chase under the bed to protect the utilities.

#4 - our new underbed storage boxes and my shoe cubby/step.

I often wonder why people remove such nice items as water tanks, heaters, stove tops, refrigerators, etc. (permanently). do yax r us intend to reinstall the water tank?

I pulled the water tank out of the interior to gain the space for outside access.

I located a 25 gal water tank under the trailer tucked in close to the axle.

I also removed the kitchen cabinet with the sink, stove, gas heater, drawer, backsplash
and overhead stove vent/fan.

Why ? We don't cook in the trailer (use BBQ & Microwave), have a sink in the bathroom with hand held shower (for dish washing), have an electric heater (use full hook ups).

Created a bench with larger drawer and storage compartment accessible from outside for
hoses and hook up stuff.

The real reason is so we can have a king size bed in our 13' Casita Patriot Deluxe.
