Original porta-potti works great, as does the original fridge and light fixture.
Also has the original retro orange paper towel holder and dixie cup dispenser that matches the harvest gold fridge panel (don't you love the 70's?):

We have completed the following work in the past year:

Complete exterior vertiglas fiberglass restoration (not paint)
Interior stripped and bleached (it needed it)
New centre rub strip
New tires (incl spare)
New wheel covers
New fiberglass front window cover
New tail and running lights
New window screens
New curtains
New closed-cell cushions
New upholstery
We removed the front seatback/ bunk for extra seating depth, but it has new cushion and upholstery to match which will be included. Also, please note that we have IKEA sheets covering the new upholstery to protect it:

The following work has been done since photos:
Re-built frame
New hitch extension and 2" hitch-coupling and heavy-duty breakaway chains
New jack / wheel
New spare tire holder (moved to hitch in front of propane tank)
New water hand pump
Re-built city water tap

Bamboo flooring was next on our list and would have completed it, but decided to go full-timing for a couple of years and as much as we love it, it's a little too small. Optional new custom alloy tread-plate bumper box available (stores the jacks, wheel blocks, BBQ and patio stuff). Delivery is also available for gas + ferry. Call or email Paul for more info or pics.

Bottoms of seat cushions done in vinyl so they don't absorb moisture from the seats:
(we also flip the vinyl side up if we're at the lake or the beach and have wet gear or dogs)

Retro orange lino is curling a bit, and can be re-glued. We planned on replacing it with bamboo engineered flooring (it's the best ecologically sustainable choice):

We believe this little trailer offers the best camping choice out there today. The large opening awning windows on all four sides capture the breeze, even in the rain. It's super light weight is great for conserving fuel, and whenever we find the perfect tree to camp under, I can just lift up the hitch by hand and push it into place.

We could have ripped out the interior and done some cool mods, but we also felt it was more enviornmentally friendly to polish, clean and restore what was original rather than add more to a landfill. Anything that was removed was recycled properly.

If you're a first-timer, this little gem will change your life. It changed mine.
