Welcome to the site! I have a Uhaul also and it indeed is not an original restoration. I have done most of the work myself and made it comfortable/usable for myself, wife, and the big dog Tia. Don't get hung up on 100% perfect/stock because then you won't want to actully use it. Rick

Welcome to this site and also the UHaul family. We have enjoyed our CT for 5 years, and so far haven't had to update or fix much. It is fun to see all the different states that UHauls live in.

U-Haul

Hi Mj
We also recently bought a ct13 and replaced the lights with fixtures from an rv dealer that have the plug for bunk lights on the sides we plan to line the back of the bunk lights with velcro so they can be placed anywhere on the roof carpet they were only about $10 each but the bunk lights were a bit more they are 12v and we plan to replace the standard bulbs with leds. I ripped out the 30 year old nasty stinking carpet and installed allure flooring and couldnt be happier, i did have to put down a subfloor to level things with the fiberglass that bends out from the storage areas and epoxyed molding since you cant really nail into the fg. While we were at it we installed an outside light also about$10, very handy when stepping out for a nature call in the middle of the night.

Wow, Very NICE!! I plan to do a round table also. Is there any chance that you have installation photos of your flooring? My trailer also has a 'bump along the center, front to back, and I just don't know how to accommodate it when I install flooring.

Like your mods

Very nice mods! I like your bunk lights, the floor treatment and that beautiful round table! I was wondering if/how to make my CT-13 more
appealing and you have showed me. Thanks for the nice pictures.

I love the little round bistro table, too.

I may steal the idea for my front dinette conversion.

Great looking!

Very clean and inviting!

Do I see a shelf next to the closet above the seating/bed area? How did you attach it?

The shelf is attached with L-brackets and screwed into the fiberglass. It was made by the previous owner, he said that he used screwholes that had been there when he got it. As far as the table, they sell precut, presandes table rounds at Lowes It was under $10 and got the pole reciever at the RV dealer. I will get another pole reciever to make a base so we can use the bistro table around camp while the dinette is in bed mode.

Appreciate the Lowes table info!

Thanks for sharing where you got the table. If we all get them we can tell
everyone it was an original from UHaul! LOL don

I wished i had taken photos of the flooring install. I was so excited to see the progress that i couldnt stop. The Allure Flooring was so easy to work with all you need is a utility knife to cut it. I did the floor in under 4 hours. Unfortunately one box of flooring was about 2 pieces short to do the floor. I would suggest building up the floor to be even with the bump, my trailer only had the fiberglass bending out into the floor and 1/4 inch subfloor worked to fill. I did have to get longer 1/4" machine screws to reattach the floor pole receiver found them at wallyworld.
