All parents are teachers, some just teach really special things! Sounds like your Mom did a fine job with you. Life is an ongoing education and we're always learning. Thanks for sharing the poem.

Ditto!! I just lost my last Aunt. And like you she and My Uncle both had the camping bug and helped us get {for me} Back to camping. Deb and I both love the lifestyle, and still "camp" where and whenever we can. Enjoy the trailer and good luck!! You have done great work and it shows!!!!

I don't know if this helps or not buddy, but mine is all aluminum and sometimes I notice a slight bow in the side walls that are over 25 feet. when its a 100+ day you notice it more and when like now in the 40's it looks completely straight. No bow at all. How that has done that all these years and not tear or leak or??? I have no clue. Maybe someone else will be able to but it has never made any sense to me. I know it has worked for 29 years and still works. Hope that helps but as to the issue you have raised that my experience and I have no real answers other than what has worked for all these years.I would say to staple it down like mine was done and it will be ok, but I understand your question as well. Hope you find the right answer. Oh,I have wood framing too! Good Luck,

Your trailer looks like its coming along nicely. I like your layout inside. You've done a nice neat job. I'm always learning from other peoples ideas and jobs. I really like your table for two. I'll bet that gives a lot more room inside.

This summer I'm thinking of re-painting my trailer. I haven't made up my mind yet but one of the things I've been kicking around doing is to pull my windows. Then remove the paint so I can polish the frames. How did you go about polishing your frames? They look nice. I have enough stainless steel screws to replace the old ones. I've got a buddy that sells nuts and bolts. That would finish off my window project.

Well, I haven't committed myself to stripping the frames yet. But giving it some serious thought. When we bought the trailer they were already painted. Then when I painted the trailer I did the same. This summer I've been thinking of repainting it. I do like the look of the frames painted with new screws in them.
I will try polishing the door and front awining frames. Yours look so good shiny.

Think of all that paint as "protection"!!! Please be careful when dealing with the old paints. Many had lead in the forumulations (no dry sanding that creates dust!!!). Usually the exterior type and many of the kind used on interior trim work (semi-gloss and gloss). There's no telling what types of paints were used on these old rigs over the years.
