Just some pictures of things I have been working on. I installed the bed in the front for the last time, had it in and out 4 or 5 times but this is it. All I have to do is make the drawers for the one side. Makes for a lot of storage under the bed. Also installed 2 max turbo vents, they are just like a fantastic fan but the fan is in the shroud.
Looking for to summer.

Ken

Ken, in your photo of the under bed storage, are you having those three area's on the top for open storage? Is the area under these area's accessible by removing the upper storage, or are you putting in an outside door for access to storage under the upper storage places?

Looking great. I bet your wanting spring to hurry up and come to

Hi Dan, yes summer is just around the corner. " we hope " The three storage compartments under the bed are for extra bedding. The only eccess to them is by lifting the bed up. When the drawers go in I will make the whole top level separate from the lower. 6 inches deep on top and 14 inches below. The storage under them is eccessed from either side of the trailer, the drivers side storage door is much bigger than the passenger side which is only 12x12 because of awning mount.

Just a small update, started to make my cabinet doors. I am using plywood but I am cutting out the centers to make them lighter, then gluing them together with oak paneling one for each side. It's not fancy but they cover the holes . Fridge has been put in for the last time also the microwave. Installed vents on both sides of the microwave to keep it cool when its running. A few things off my list. Anyway looking forward to summerand the camping season, Ken

Thanks Danny - the removal of every little bit of weight helps. More progress pictures. Moved the ghetto blaster out and installed the stereo, concentrating on finishing the dinette so we can order the cushions.


Thanks,
Ken

Thanks Shelly, I'm glad you are enjoying this rebuild. Spring is in the air there is lots of threads with people making adjustments and updates to their trailers yourself included as I mentioned the new floor looks great. Here are some pics of how the pantry was made . Repaired a old frame installed new slides top and bottom and had some metal bent to make the trays [ the guy at the metal shop bent and supplied the material for a 6 pack of beer, I love beer it is a great bartering tool ] put the ends on and bolted them to the frame . It works pretty good, should hold lots of goodies

Hey Jason:

Thanks for taking the time to check it out. I appreciate your comment. I see that you may be in the market for a trailer. Do you know what you want? I will keep an eye out for you if you are willing to travel. Found an old boler for $450 a few years back so they are still out there.

Ken

Have had a little time to start on the kitchen cabinets and counter, covered the frame with oak paneling and installed a removable shelf. Made the countertop, in the picture it is in for a dry fit only. I'm working on the edge of the top. I had an old oak roll up cabinet door that I cut in strips about 5/8" wide . Also cut 5/8" rabbet out of my 1 1/2 x 3/4 oak moulding and glued and stapled them in place, then installed the plastic laminate. After I put 4 or 5 coats of lacquer on the edge it will go in for the last time. Ordered my sink but it is a no show will wait until it arrives before I cut the hole.

Just a few pics of the kitchen updates, installed sink and taps. Finished the kitchen cabinets, made a smaller version of the pantry slideout by the stove for spices, etc. Moving to the dining area later this weekend.

Thanks.
