Hi Heidi,

I got all the decals, mudflaps, tire cover from Tom at trilliumrv.com. He doesn't get back to you right away but I found dealing with him quite easy. The stuff isn't cheap but I just had to do it after all the work I put into it. Be very careful putting the stickers on as it is a one shot deal and if you screw it up it is hard to correct the problem. As for the other stuff I simply got it from local rv shops and dealers. I also bought a lot of stuff online and had it shipped to a mailing center in the states (maybe not useful to you being in Saskatchewan). Let me know if you need any other info as I milked these pages when I was going through my reno.

Looks great. I love the green/red colour combination that works with the red of the decals.

Thanks Chris! I will definitely look in to things more and if I need help on where to find something I will definitely ask you.

Our Boler fridge--the original--doesn't cool well anymore. Thinking about replacing it with electric model as we never run it on propane. Did you disconnect the original propane lines yourself? Were there any problems installing the Domestic fridge?

Do you have a fuse box/breaker panel in the trailer? Curious because our Boler doesn't have one.

Where did you buy the bamboo for the table top? Perhaps this is a dumb question but is it sturdy enough to sleep on? (Our table is VERY heavy and a pain to put up and down.) Is the outside table also bamboo?

Thanks! Great pictures, BTW

Our fridge is the smallest one made by Dometic and it is a 3 way as we like to use propane when not hooked up, we use 12V when driving, and 120 when plugged in. I did not feel comfortable installing it myself as it must vent properly to the outside. I had a local RV company (Escape Trailers) install it for me. Let me know if you need the exact model number.
I do have a converter and breaker panel that was installed with all the new wiring.
The bamboo is hard to find but can be bought or ordered through specialty wood stores. It is a plywood but I love the way it looks. It is however crazy expensive and only can be bought in a full sheet (4'x8') which was ok for me as I did two tables and a countertop. Definitely strong enough to sleep on.

Chris

Off camping on friday for a week. Hope everyone is enjoying their trailers this summer

Thank you for the information. I found one Dometic 90L Caravan Fridge RM 2350 - 3 Way from www.fridgeandpower.com for $1,279. Having just bought the trailer last year--costly due to all the renovation already done--guess I'll have to wait as, being 60+ and retired I really want the front gaucho/sofa turned into a two-person dinette and a chemical toilet under the bench nearest the door. (My husband suggested buying me jewellry for my b-day next week; I asked for a toilet...go figure )

It's a Dometic model #2193 definitely not as much as you see for the 2350.

You may want to look on kijiji. I found an old, but working RM211 for $100. I also found a RM36E in the wreckers for $25.

Take a look at:

Thanks. Another member also suggested Kijiji for an awning. I don't tend to shop online (aside from e-books) but think perhaps I'd best get with the times as there are good bargains to be had!

Bonnie,
These fridges work best on propane, take longer to cool than regular fridges and will only cool to a gradient of the outside temperature. You can get them rebuilt in Ontario and by modifying the venting you can improve their efficiency.

I have a 211 in my scamp. The gas goes seem to cool the best. 110 works too. Think I need to replace a 10A fuse before I can test the 12V

Please tell me more about Improving the cooling by modifying the venting

Thank you!
