Hi Mike. That's a slick looking unit. I'm curious about the original interior. The registry pix combined with the Amerigo ancestry suggest that this trailer is a molded shell studded out and the frames bays insulated. Do you know how the skin was supported/reinforced originally. Did it have a combination of bulkheads and furnishings acting as beams or a "sticky" sandwich similar to current interior frame? Inquiring minds want to know.

Jack

the shell had a stick frame, not as heavily built but it was there that all the cabinets hung on with fiberglass bat insulation. they where attached to 1/2 plywood fiberglassed into the shell about 12" up from the floor and another at the top of the sidewall the full perimeter and crossing the roof. the roof plywood was flat and had give up and let the roof sag down. the top side plywood is what i rested the mini trusses on to push the roof back up, held it there with props until after the foam was blown in. now the roof crowns up over 2 inches and is stong enough to support the ac with no problem.

the shell is being prepped now to be painted, going a light champagne with a real light silver accents

thanks for the comments

great to be here

You did a fine job of fixing it up, Mike.

Looks cozy with all that spray foam.

Hope you'll post a bit more on the interior spec and amenities included in the rebuild. If you had a target weight for the redone version, did you meet it? How does dry weight now compare to the weight of the original?

Thank you D. Davis. I don't feel too goofy thinking about all the great things I've missed not knowing how to bring up those photos. Mike
