    I still have to put the fiberglass consoles back in but I have decided to take out the old pink oven and replace it with a stove top and convert the space to cupboards. That has taken some time and I couldn't find anyplace in town with sheets of fiberglass to replace it with. So, I decided to make my own sheet to replace it with by painting some gel coat onto a waxed piece of glass then putting some resin and fiberglass over that. I just watched a bunch of Youtube videos to figure out how to do that. It didn't come out perfect and it is a bit whiter than the original but it will fade over time and will be functional.

    Next project is to make sure the refrigerator is secure and looks good.

    Anyway, I have made significant progress and I will be back camping soon. Hopefully by the end of the month.

    After that, I had to make some repairs to the roof that were done poorly by the previous owner. Instead of peeling back the foam liner and doing the repairs from inside, they just did repairs from the outside and they looked pretty horrible. I ground off all of the old fiberglass repairs and made repairs from inside, being careful not to mess up the old Ensolite because I didn't want to replace it. Then, I put gel coat over the repairs on the outside and I am going to sand it down then use the Zep floor polish to clean up the entire trailer.

    What prompted me to start this was that the old axle had to be replaced. I had hoped to wait until sometime when I wasn't planning on using it.

    To replace the axle I needed to take it off the frame and have someone weld the new one on because they didn't want to start a fire.

    If you don't have to take it off the frame then don't do it. I think it would have been much better to replace the floor without taking it off the frame. That way I wouldn't have had to worry so much about getting it right back on the frame. I did it, but replacing just a few pieces of floor would have been much easier than replacing the whole floor. Or, replacing one piece at a time would have been easier too.
