Rebuild of Amber Rose
After logging over 13,000 miles this year; the '73 Compact Jr. is showing it's age. Have spent the last couple of weeks drawing plans. The colors: the exterior will be Watermellon over Pink Petal White.
I began stripping the interior yesterday and was quite impressed. Having demo'd several 30 - 40 year old stick built trailers to use the frames; they were really structurally flimsy. The interior wood structure on the Compact is very well put together. If not for a previous owner boring oversized holes for plumbing and wiring; moisture may not have been able to enter.
Plans will include moving the refer and using the curbside area for a shower/potty room. Being a single grandpa, I have no need for converting the dinette into a queen bed, so the curbside area will have cabinets to window level and a bunk on top.
Hoping to get it done in time for the spring NOG.
