My husband, Paul and I are fairly new to this site; we found it when we bought a little old 1984 fiberglass motorcycle trailer to tow behind our Dodge Grand Caravan for an exercise pen for our two pug girls and other equipment we were having a hard time fitting into our van, like a walker
and sometimes wheelchair for me.
The trailer was full of mold and rock chipped on top, but Paul was eager to see what he could do with it--
The first thing we did was look online for "Remove mold from fiberglass," and found this site.
The advice was super, worked great, and we felt really good about it. We're using our little trailer often, so delighted the inside smells decent!
Once we were on this site, inspired by our early (and relatively easy success), we were reminded of the existence of what I used to call "marshmallow trailers" in the 60's. We learned they're called "eggs," not marshmallows, and began reading and looking and reading and looking.
WOW! It's a whole world out there we'd been barely aware of. Suddenly I had to get a fiberglass RV, possibly redo it inside (well, Paul would do the redoing), resurrect something going downhill and bring it back to life...
Two weeks ago today we bought that dark brown 1973 Amerigo
in Salem that's been on FGRV for a few weeks--and Paul now has the entire rotted plywood floor out of it and we have the new plywood coming and are debating what to use for the wallboards.
It's been a busy two weeks. We were woefully naïve when we bought it; we thought maybe new curtains and a funny metal sign and we'd be off camping. HAH! BUT the help we've found on this site has been beyond invaluable! The members are just wonderful and we don't know how we could proceed without them.
