I vote for a white trailer and terrific graphics. That way, you can change the graphics if you sell the present tug and get one of a different color.
I agree with Donna. The graphics can be blue and silver.

The hinge side of the door didnt have the same profile as the handle side. So I removed the steel bar and cut this board using the handle side as a template.

Looks good Dominique. The wood support on the hinge side can now be used for the screen door mod if you want. It is an interesting approach to solving the typical body sag. A little different than how I did mine, but just as effective.

I don't know what fridge you have, but you might get some ideas from how I improved the fridge venting on my boler American. I got the ideas from the link Frederick provided above.

Porto II is out of the garage. Here is the final product, minus the windows and the door handle
On the second picture, even if its a bit over exposed, you can see how nicely the door fits now. On the final pic, i wanted to show what i did to the threshold of the door. I didnt want to reinstall the aluminium plate so i fiberglassed that part. All i have left to do now is to glue the weatherstripping. A few more nights of work (im thinking more like 15-20!!!!) and ill be ready to go. Cant wait to go camping.

Here are the last mods i did:

- new doors and "drawers" in the closet. The insert of the door is "arborite" glued on a 1/8 inch panel

Awesome bike rack at the back, thanks to my brother-in-law, installed the battery and propane tank in front. Notice how i extended the handle so its over the battery box. The 12V system is all done as well, notice the battery charger on top. All i have left to do is to connect the accessories.

Here is the last pic ill post for now. It shows the awning installed. I had it taylor made for my Boler. All i have left to do is to connect the propane and redo the 120V system. Ill install a 4-breaker box under the sink. I will also change the curtains. Im going for a blue scotish patern material. TY to everyone who answered my questions along the way. Look for me this summer, im going from Quebec to Vancouver Island and back.

Happy camping everyone!!!

I like your doors! I did something similar, but used the existing ones and covered them
