1973 Ventura - The Journey Begins

Picked up this 1973 Ventura mid Summer 2020. Managed to get out almost every weekend. (The picture below is from November 14th, 2020. Testing it out for some winter camping). Everything is in really good condition, but want to do a few aesthetic upgrades. Over the next few months, I am replacing the countertop and table, changing the colour of cabinet doors, installing valences and a few other updates. I've already installed solar and a new fridge. Exterior, likely going to go with something like an off white on the top and a retro blue on the bottom.

I will upload interior shots in the next couple of days.

And so the journey begins....

It looks great!
It will really feel like it's yours after you have done a few mods.
Have fun and take lots of photos.

Reno'ing my little trailer - Continued. (While still actively using it on weekends. Good thing the heater works well. Last weekend was -14 Celcius)
Here's what it looks like now. I will post as I complete parts of the reno.
Things that have already been completed: Ceiling Fan, New fridge. (Roughed in. Needs to be prettied up yet). Solar panels - enough power to watch 4 hours on a 30" screen + Operate fridge 24/7 + Run other small wattage items for approx 7 hours.
May appear dramatically larger than real life. 10' long by 5' 8" wide by 6' 1" tall.
