Hi Michael, to FiberglassRV, we're glad you're here!

If you've been reading, you know we love pictures. Do you have any to share? We really like the old grungy kind of camper pictures, because then we get to follow along when it becomes perfect for you!

I just went and looked at the ad, direct link: MI: Casita 13' - $2500

THEN I SAW THIS! "probably needs new silicone around the outside"



Looks like you've got a keeper

Just a heads up, in case you didn't know: Silicone is BAD news with fiberglass. It has pretty much achieved "inside joke" status when it is mentioned, especially around Donna.

i didn't know this when I joined, just knew what a PITA it was to remove from projects around the house. It was FGRV that educated me to the evils of the stuff.

If you already knew this, I apologize for stating the obvious.

Butyl tape under rivets. You're keeping the shag, right? Good luck, nice egg to make your own.
