Thanks for the pictures. I really love the doors blocking the cab bed. Looks like I will be installing something on those lines.

Not a problem, though the pictures haven't been updated in quite some time, I've been busy working at this camper.

You can see everything I've done and so forth here:

The Journey of the Redneck Express

I'm off on my latest project of dually-ificating my 3/4 ton truck

I have a question for you- everything outside & inside looks great! Including the edges of your drawers and doors which is where MY '72 needs help ...the edges are all yuck on those and I see you have like a plastic or soft edged type covering of brown on yours. did you add that or did someone else? Do you know what it is or where I could find something like that? I really need to do the edges on mine before they get any worse and that is the one thing inside that really bugs me cosmetically in mine. Thanks for any info!

Those edges are a push on piece that is factory original, they're a rigid molded plastic that KIT miter cut to go on the hollow cabinet doors (They're made of 1x2s and veneer), sadly, I wouldn't know where to buy more of it, I don't actually know if it's even still made.

Me, I've been slowing phasing out some of the older cabinet doors where possible for alder or poplar based solid wood cabinet doors from a local salvage shop. The cabinets I rebuilt over the dinette when I removed the pull down bed ended up using 6 new doors which I bought from the salvage shop for $25.

If your existing doors have something similar and are simply a rectangle, you can go to the hardware store and get small hemlock casing that's a similar thickness designed for corners and glue and brad it to the outer edge to give it a nicer look, a method commonly used with basic plywood style low cost home cabinet doors.

Ah thanks! Mine are just square edge yeah, we are figuring out what to do with them and first thought doing something with the edges would work but we may want to redo the fronts. We wanted to keep as much original as possilble. Thanks!

I own a 1956 KIT brand trailer and am wondering if there is anyway I could get you to post (or email) a good quality, straight on, picture of the KIT shield logo? It would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance. Kenny firstyearta@yahoo.com

Which color do you want? I repainted my front shield several years ago, and the little colored center tabs are now white, but the outline and main top are in color.

My rear shield is still original, though very faded.

I'd love to see everything you have.
I'm not 100% sure they used this logo as far back as 1956, but I'd like to add a logo and at least it would be correct for the brand.

They were using it in the early 60s, so I'd wager it'd be fitting for 56. .

Here's a shot of my '56 Kit Coach Home trailer.
It's pretty much as I bought it.
It's just under 11' long (not including the tongue)
Pretty sure originally it had no paint.
Someday I'll restore it, but for now were just enjoying it.
This shot was taken just last week when we went camping.

What a find! Of course, the find is good only when you know what to do to take care of it and make it as beautiful and functional as it can be. It is fun to watch you renew and transform. Happy traveling.
