Nice video. Now please come back and fill in the details of what you did I noticed you wore a respirator all the time and your "dad" or helper didnt.

Great job. Like to know more about the floors, your external prep work etc.

Cool Beans! Whew, I'm tired just watching it .

Yes, I did wear a respirator... can't be too carful My dad had one, I just couldn't convince him to wear it. "It is water based paint son, don't worry about it".

I did the floors with some extra 12mm laminate that I had laying around the house. I screwed down some plywood, so that I could glue the floor down. Normally you don't need to glue this floor, but I with the jumping around of the trailer I figured it would need the extra help staying together.

It has held up well so far, but I still haven't recaulked the joints in the exterior, so a little water got in the other day, and I have a bit of a floor bubble

For the exterior, we didn't do a perfectionists job. It was in pretty rough shape, so figured a quick sand, and some body filler on the worst spots, and it would look a lot better. I think we were right - very happy with how it looks.

Interior was about 8 hours I'd guess. Tough to say as there was a lot of stopping and starting

The painting was done over two days, about 16 hours I'd guess.

It isn't perfect. We would have gone crazy trying to fix everything. But it looks a lot better

I just loved it, video, music and end result! I told my husband "See, that is why we never can get anything done, we move too slow!"
