Fiberglass RV - Randy Schafer's Album: Dream Shack becomes reality!


Dream Shack becomes reality!
We have camped for 36 years, from tents to big bad motorhomes. This album is a photo log of our work on the little trailer as we work towards fulfilling our dream of easly and inexpensively wandering the country!
Windows before stripping.  The aluminum windows were painted an ugly flat green, surrounded by wood contact paper that was then painted grey!  This...
Outside light.  We  need to set the mood outside, so $3 a flower pot, a lamp kit, and some lite brite pegs and we are doing the 70 thing!  Thank...
Outside seating done, extra fabric put to good use!
Additional storage in closet.  We really don't need that much hanging space!
A smile the work was worth it!
Inside 9-25-12.  Less than a month later and we are on schedule for a shake down camp October 5th with our daughters families!

Icebox is in working condition!
Two burner stove, galley pump and direct water faucet!
Interior, photos taped to the wall, stained cushions, rotten wood trim around windows, etc. etc. etc.
Ok, so after checking, it needs work, but nothing we can't take on!
Back Home parked in the driveway, no we can really investigate what we have gotten ourselves into!
All hooked up and ready for the 4 hour drive home!  Longer going home with 55 mph roads, stops for 2 grandsons and of course Ice Cream to celebrate!
We drove 3 hours to Northern Lower Michigan to drive down a little better than fire trails to find this!  It was listed on Craigs list, and had come...
