Bonair Oxygen Interior Refresh

Hello,

I bought a Bonair Oxygen trailer 2 years ago and have been making modifications. The interior work is pretty close to complete. I have some before and after photos (on my OneDrive) and thought maybe these may help inspire someone with their own renovations - as I was inspired by some photos someone shared with me.

If anyone has any questions, I'm happy to answer.

Thank you to all for the positive feedback. It's much appreciated.

My focus has changed to the outside of the trailer. Although you can't see it in the external photos, the clear coat on top of the trailer all along the "door side" has bubbled and flaked off. This is is allowing rain to find it's way under the clear coat, further aggravating to problem. The rain water is dirty and looks bad and sits in pockets under the clear coat. As I lightly sand the loosened clear coat, the problem gets bigger. In one or two areas I have accidentally sanded through the thin layer of gelcoat exposing the composite material underneath. Structurally, there doesn't appear to be any damage at all to the body. Everything is completely solid.

I have tried to repair the small areas with gelcoat, but I've found that blending the affected area in with the surrounding clear-coated area is not giving me satisfactory results. I've decided to have the trailer painted. I am looking for some advice from fiberglass trailer owners who have had their trailers stripped and repainted. I am not interested in doing this work myself.

I am located in Southern Ontario and I'm looking for a reputable place with experience painting fiberglass trailers. Does anyone have any recommendations? I'm willing to travel several hundred kilometers to have the work done properly. If the answer is, take it to an auto body shop, can anyone recommend what to look for? If the answer is take it to a boat shop, again, can anyone recommend one specifically?

Thank you.

Nice job on the interior.. looks like a labour of love.

Not sure what you mean by "Clear coat". I'm guessing it's some type of protective film. I have an O2 and the outside finish is white gel coat. If you could post some pics it may give a better idea of the problem. Also if you plan to pull the frame for refinishing. I can give you some suggestions.

Looks great! The fresh new fabric colour inspires me to replace the exact same fabric in our trailer.

How did you construct the table leg (looks interesting).

We are mulling over whether to try to add a "hatch" to the rear of the trailer (similar to boat hatches), to allow access to the under bed storage, which can be difficult to access.

Try a boat yard for fiberglass repair and painting.

For gelcoat repair and painting, check with Paul Neumeister (A1 Auto Refinishing) in Sebringville, Ont. He has a Boler 1650 (!) and has substantial experience with FGRV body and mechanical work. I highly recommend him for this type of work.

The table leg is called a "Springfield gas powered table pedestal." It's available from shop4seats.com. It's a little pricey but seems to be good quality. Direct link: Springfield Gas Powered Table Pedestal - Dinette Hardware - Dinettes - RV FURNITURE

Thanks very much John. That's not too far away from me.
