WOW!!! Good job!
Love the print on the screen room - I think you could leverage that into a really cool interior decorating theme!

Nice! Definitely a score with that add-a-room. Also cool to see another orange fiberglass interior on a 73' like mine and what the original cushions looked like.

Enjoy!

I too, have to say SCORE!
I just noticed the add-a-room snaps to the camper down low. Too cool! That would definitely be a bug confuser -which is good down here!

Here too! Manitoba mosquitoes are notorious.

I just got the trailer back from servicing and found out that the repair bill for bringing the propane to "code" would be sky-high. Quick solution: Coleman stove. Wife and I are getting packed up and ready for our first trip tomorrow.

Enjoy!
My cantaloupe has a green exterior and an orange interior, but they have both been painted with what looks like interior latex house paint. I think it was greener, but has now faded to a pastel green, but the inside is still the orangy peach that they painted it. I think the outside will pretty much pressure wash off. I will have to strip off the interior paint.

My daughter, that this trailer is for, wants it an even more intense orange, and green. So, I will ask my neighbor to paint it with a good two part paint. We will have to do the sanding, and masking, but he tells me that he likes to paint, as long as I buy the paint. This is good, because I will probably ask him to paint all four of the trailers. Maybe not the inside of all four though.

Is this a color scheme that was offered in a limited number of years? I would like to determine the year of this trailer. The PO has it registered as a 1979, but is know it must be 1976, or earlier.

I just removed a window because I lost my key and needed to get back in, and also because the wood around the windows has rotted out. Looks like the original is green outside, orange/yellow inside. This one was registered as a '73.
