Added independent 12V electrical system w/ deep cycle battery, larger sink and on-demand 12V water pump, added new wood cabinet face frames and cabinet doors, new plwood inserts and cushions. Tried to keep trailer as original as possible, no radical modifications, still simple and functional. Restored the original 2 eye LP stove to working order. Replaced the rusted and nonfunctioning fridge with Coleman upright 12V cooler in same space. Removed nonfunctioning LP heater unit.
