I bought some today $15.00 at the local hardware store that is 80 miles from the next hardware store, so there you go.

Interior..Not Paint, Alumalite Panels

Vickie B,

All the doors and drawer fronts in "Toots" were removed and that heavy "fake lumber" was replaced with an aluminum product, Alumalite.

Alumilite is a light weight, 3 layered sandwich, panel. The middle panel is convoluted to give the material dimension.

Getting rid of the heavy carpet, the doors and drawer fronts helped reduce the total weight, significantly.

Aero ParadiseLLC is the business that did the interior work. They may or maynot be willing to share their installation techniques. Most of their business involves redoing the interiors of airplanes. Mona

Headliner

Donna,

The headliner fabric was foam backed. The ceiling had to be sanded very smooth, as every bump or blemish would have showed thru the foam backed fabric.

I am very pleased with the redo. Amazing improvements! Mona

Mona, looking at the photos, it looks like they left the cabinets in place during the refit. Is that correct? The reason I ask is because the carpet is sandwiched between the cabinet and the fiberglass wall, so did they just leave those sections of the carpets in place? In other words, is there still carpet in your trailer, behind the cabinets?

Completely Gutted, Casita 1990

Lars, No cabinets were left inplace during the refit. All of the smelly ,heavy carpet and foam came out. Reflextic was installed on the interior walls, and then the bendable side walls, which were covered with an upholstry fabric were installed. The only carpet still in the Casita is inside of the small front closet, as you enter. I guess that answers your questions. Mona

Thanks for the info, Mona. Although I really don't want to have to do anything to our trailer, when the time finally arrives when the carpet begins to separate from the shell, I'll look forward to putting linoleum down on the floor. It would make it much easier to deal with kitchen spills than the carpet.
