Looking good! Hi Lo's always interest me. They were built in my home town and my neighbor used to work in the purchasing dept. there.

I was able to get all the cabinet doors and drawers put back together, and finally got the top adjusted to where it should be. It was off by four inches! Looks like the cable clamps had slipped.

Well so far, nothing in my schedule for this weekend, so I'm planning on sanding the walls and removing lights and window trim tonight, and hopefully painting the wall tomorrow.

Got all the sanding done, and the first coat of paint on this evening after work. It's already looking a lot bigger inside.









I actually have three coats on now, just finished cleaning up, but it was too dark for pictures, so I'll take them tomorrow.

Paint was dry this morning and looks pretty good. The guy at lowes apparently mixed the wrong color, it was supposed to be a shade darker, but it's close enough. Semi-gloss so it will be easy to wipe off when it gets dirty.

That thing cleaned up really well didn't it?

I think you're going to enjoy that camper for many years to come.

no doubt in my mind, this year is more about getting it campable. It's got room for a queen sized mattress in the back, and I just picked up the countertop and trailer wiring today. Now all I need is tires, and I'm ready to camp! I plan on doing a lot more to it, fixing the walls and redoing all the seals, but for this season I can throw the tarp over if it starts to rain.

Well today I only have one picture, most of what I did was under the trailer. I rewired the running lights and brake lights. I also welded the flip down stabilizer jacks and and fixed the ball mount where it was cracked. I also painted the light fixtures while I had them off for painting.



Getting tires put on tomorrow, and it's pretty much ready for camping. Still plenty to do, but now I can take it camping in between working on it.

Finally got new rubber on the camper. Found that I towed the camper home with only the hubcap holding the lug nuts on. Just glad I made it. Wheel studs were shot, but it was a good chance to re-grease the bearings and check the status of the brakes. I also cleaned up the padding for the beds and table. I'll eventually reupholster them, as the white vinyl was done poorly but the camper is ready to pull. The interior lights quit working when I re-wired the tow lights, but I'm researching that now.

Painting the window framing, some of it I had to paint in place. Thinking about painting the cabinet hardware to match, the copper doesn't really fit in.
