What a great rebuild Rolf!
A trailer reno often becomes a much bigger project than first imagined but your trailer looks amazing, love the kitchen.
Good luck with the headliner, it is doable but can be tricky - although it looks like you are more than capable!

My old SS14 reno

That was my first FRP trailer a 1979 SS I loved that thing took it off the frame did a rebuild on it (Not as nice as yours) but I did use the boat liner 3M interior and it turned out great I dragged that thing all over and it never let me down.
Rewired, upgraded interior, put a Bomar boat hatch and an aluminum framed Daylighter RV Skylight in the roof as it was sagging slightly, so the aluminum frame fixed that, plus it looked like a 20' foot trailer inside after as the ceiling and daylight both made it seem so much bigger inside. Put a bow locker on the front "A" frame for battery and LPG etc.
Great little trailers!

Getting there!

It has been a busy few months working on the trailer, but man it is so much fun!!
After the new cushions arrived I cobbled together the remaining cabinet work and the bunk bed and off camping we went. We have used it 5 times already and everything works perfect.
There is still some outstanding work like the gas lines from the tongue box to the furnace and stove, the water tank installation, a few cabinet doors, the marine liner installation plus a permanent rock guard. But I will leave some work for the next looooong Canadian winter.

What I have done since the last post:
-Wired up the solar panels, chargers and battery
-Install a ShadyBoy Awning
-Install custom cut black out roller shades from
-Install kitchen backsplash, sink and tap, stove
-Finish the bunk bed, finish the dining table.
-Install a Wizard screen door.
-Install the tongue box that hold one gas bottle.

Looks really good Rolf. Love that sink, and the awning site is a good one to know.
I hope I get to see it sometime.
Now to work on the kink in my neck. LOL

Logos installed

I got the logos done at a local print shop in Calgary. Now it is clear what kind of trailer it is again. Does not look much like a Surfiside anymore, more like a newer Trillium but without the cool Trillium logo. ;-)

Thank you to all the people that commented on my work and gave me tips!
