We ended up ripping everything out.
But now we are left with the decision of what to replace it with...and what will adhere to the fiberglass and still look good.
[b]What suggestions do you have?
Congratulations on your project!
Rebuilding a trailer from the naked shell
will give you an intimate knowledge of how everything works!
I did this with my 1st trailer, a 1971 Compact Junior
Before I started on this project, I looked into buying a Lite House
Trailer-for-Two. This was in 1996, when that company was still in business...
I feel a long story comming on.
You might want to fix yourself a cup of coffee and get comfortable about now...
Anyway, when I got all excited about the Lite House
trailer, I sent away for the video the manufacturer had made. It showed his construction process, and I decided that I could do that myself. It turns out that Lite House
) line the inside walls and ceiling with Reflectix Insulation
. This is glued to the fiberglass. Scamp
installs 2 layers.
I used an aresol spray glue: 3M Super 77
. The directions tell you to work in a "small" area that you can finish within the 20 minute cure time. I sprayed the wall section, then I sprayed the piece of Reflectix, let them "dry" for 20 minutes, then hung the Reflectix on the wall as if I were wallpapering. I did this one piece at a time, but only one layer.
If I were to do it again (I did it over the first time), I would use:3M Super 90
At this point Scamp
covers their interior with the infamous "rat fur". I wanted something more washable, so I went to WalMart
and bought: Oilcloth
This is how it turned out:
