Wow, Very NICE!! I plan to do a round table also. Is there any chance that you have installation photos of your flooring? My trailer also has a 'bump along the center, front to back, and I just don't know how to accommodate it when I install flooring.

Like your mods

Very nice mods! I like your bunk lights, the floor treatment and that beautiful round table! I was wondering if/how to make my CT-13 more
appealing and you have showed me. Thanks for the nice pictures.

I love the little round bistro table, too.

I may steal the idea for my front dinette conversion.

Great looking!

Very clean and inviting!

Do I see a shelf next to the closet above the seating/bed area? How did you attach it?

The shelf is attached with L-brackets and screwed into the fiberglass. It was made by the previous owner, he said that he used screwholes that had been there when he got it. As far as the table, they sell precut, presandes table rounds at Lowes It was under $10 and got the pole reciever at the RV dealer. I will get another pole reciever to make a base so we can use the bistro table around camp while the dinette is in bed mode.

Appreciate the Lowes table info!

Thanks for sharing where you got the table. If we all get them we can tell
everyone it was an original from UHaul! LOL don

I wished i had taken photos of the flooring install. I was so excited to see the progress that i couldnt stop. The Allure Flooring was so easy to work with all you need is a utility knife to cut it. I did the floor in under 4 hours. Unfortunately one box of flooring was about 2 pieces short to do the floor. I would suggest building up the floor to be even with the bump, my trailer only had the fiberglass bending out into the floor and 1/4 inch subfloor worked to fill. I did have to get longer 1/4" machine screws to reattach the floor pole receiver found them at wallyworld.

I used that allure flooring also and had to buy an extra box for a few pieces, kinda annoying. what I dont like is that it expands and contracts too much and lifts and seperates at some of the glue joints, and it was origionaly down okay , glued together okay etc.
I'm gonna put in a one piece this year.
On the lights, mine are okay so far but I may add brighter or LED soon.

Great work by lanegr8

James, what a great job ! I love the round table. Last Friday at this time I was towing Taj UHaul down I-10 to the country so I could start working on her. First time I ever towed anything. I made it the 200 miles without any trouble. Saturday i unscrewed all the random things that previous owners had installed, but could not do much else because of the wind and rain. I ripped out the nasty carpet and even nastier sheet vinyl on Sunday. I am down to the fiberglass floor.A friend has offered me some type of bamboo flooring. I haven't seen it so I am not quite sure what it is or if it will work. I am a long way from the flooring decision ---- total rewiring and fixing the leaky windows will have to come first. Picture me reading "Wiring for Dummies" if I can't convince my BIL to help me. I think he will help because his daughter can't wait to go camping and I know he would never expose her to anything unsafe.This will probably take me quite awhile as I know nothing about this type of stuff.I have been reading the Forums and saving info. At some point I hope to have some pics to post.Thanks for sharing your great work.
