Our Honeymoon
History Made by GlassFab in Alberta. Bought by us in 1999 in Vancouver. Has covered much of BC, including a honeymoon trip from Vancouver to the Yukon. Crossed Canada in 2002 and resides in Montreal.
Interior
Kitchen before Kitchen during renos
The interior of the trailer was in horrible condition when we bought it with black mildew on the walls. We scrubbed, and scrubbed and got it clean. We added new cushions, upholstery, curtains. We removed the heater and stove. There is an icebox, but we only use it for storage and plan to remove it. We lost the top bunk to bad storage conditions in 2000. Someone kindly traced a pattern for us but we've yet to replace it. There are many improvements left to do.

Exterior
Old upholstery Old upholstery
Frame was cracked above the driver's side axle when we bought it, creating a nasty sag in the back corner. We carefully removed the shell from the frame and had that side of the frame replaced. We had other joints reinforced at the same time. Some bolts holding the kitchen cabinets have been replaced using acorn nuts and rubber washers for weather proofing. The gelcoat is in need of some love and there are spider cracks in many places. Many plans are yet to be executed.

Customization
We built a convertible extension to our bed for the aisle of the trailer allowing us to sleep lengthwise (the bed is now mushroom shaped.)

Renovations
Planned: new cupboard doors & latches, replace the top bunk, improve the shelving/storage system in the closet and cupboards, replace the roof vent with a fan, install a new 12V system, replace rusty rivets, interior paint, exterior paint, repair crank on windows, replace rubber around front and back windows, repair broken latch on rock guard, and a hundred other things.

Tow Vehicle
Mable Lake
4 cyl Toyota Corolla
