Welcome to FiberglassRV Jim & Donna.... from another Donna! I really like the Play Pacs, cool little trailer. When you say it needs a complete inside rebuild... is it gutted? Have any pictures you'd like to share? (I'd like to see the 1955 Chev too )

I am, but can certainly appreciate someone else's nice ride. Kinda like here, own a Scamp... but think other brands are wonderful too. Back to the OPs topic now.

The rally is the Mt. Baker Vintage Trailer Rally - in Lynden - fiberglass trailers are welcome to join them as well for camping - but we take the back seat row - more info on it and others can be found here: Tin Can Tourists

Hi Jim and Donna! I brought my new/old Playpac home last night myself. I'm not even unhitched yet.

Will you be taking out the ensolite or do you plan to paint? I'll be reading thru the forums this morning to find threads on fixing my sagging roof.

Itake it you are talking anbout the viynle looking stuff on the walls and the ceiling,No Donna said she wants to keep it mostly all original,SOOOO we scrubed it all with Bleach & oxy clean,It cleaned up real nicely.we will keep the interior the same lay out but we will use bathroom tile board material from lowes.we used that on our other trailer Lil-Less a couple years ago.We will sand down all the hard wood frame work and re stain and re use most of it.I was able to beat apart the cabinet door frames so I can take the old paneling piece out and replace with the tile board as well.do post some pics of yours when you get around to it Glad to see there is another play pac out there,Jim&Donna
