Wildwood Passenger Side (2011-04-22)
wildwood driver's side (2011-04-22) Wildwood with TV (2011-04-22) Wildwood (2011-04-22) No spare today.
History picked this up in Wabasca, AB - it was a 12 hour driving day, slept in the boler on the way home, then 4 more hours to get home. I think we may be the 3rd or 3th owner. 2 owners ago, the sink and stove were removed (I still have them) and a slightly larger counter top was installed. Still has the ice box. Water tank looks quite brittle.
Interior
Wildwood dinette (2011-04-22) Wildwood Countertop (2011-04-22) ignore the duct tape! Wildwood Gaucho? (2011-04-22) need to build a table for this...
Shelving in the closet, formica counter in place of the sink and stove.
need to add extra plywood to support the edges of the dinette cushions in bed mode.

Exterior
Wildwood: AAAAH?!! - Unwrapping previous owners conversion to flat 4..... (2011-04-22) Wildwood: Needed to keep the door from opening all the way (2011-04-22) Wildwood (2011-04-22)  Water tank removed; not using it. Trailing arms worn, axle on order!
none - yet.
starting with a good cleaning and vertglas.
upgrade to LED tail lights?

UPDATE:
Vertglas part done - the oxidation removal part... more to go yet..

Frame removed, new axle added (with brakes), frame mods: reinforcement was already done, tabs to bolt the fiberglass body to the frame already added, we added a removable spare tire mount under the body of the boler (where the water tank goes - if I put a water tank back in this is very easily removable). Also welded on trailer receivers on the back bumper. Why you say? well, we put a 2" in the center for future bike carrying and future spare tire mount. We added 2 1.25" to each side of that out towards the outside - this is my mount for a rear box - quickly removable. Frame cleaned off (wire brushed, ground, sanded, scrubbed, power washed) and then painted with tremclad rust primer and tremclad flat black. Looks much better, but not quite done.

Other Information
Vent was added for range hood by previous owner.  Need to replace with window. (2011-04-22) Wildwood: Previous interior color - BABY BLUE! (2011-04-22) Wildwood (2011-04-22)  Neonex ran the rear light wires under the body exposed to the elements!
we have an awning, but no mounting rail, so we need to fabricate something better to hold it in place. In low wind situations we tension a length of climbing webbing from bumper to hitch over the top which goes over the edge of the awning holding it in place.
