An impressive project! Great job, will be following your progress closely.
I love the Vintage projects thread on this site, so inspiring to watch classics brought back to life.

WOW...!!!!

You have a lot of ambition and way more energy than I have...but you are decades younger...

I admire your devotion, your skills, and your decision to return to school.

Please keep the pictures coming. I think that you have made a great start and I am sure that it will come out great.

Faith

You look really handy want to come to Wisconsin and put the new floor in my MH in your spare time. Have a free camp site while you are working on the floor.

If I went that far East, I'd keep going right into the U.P. to see family!

Silver and Sky's Motorhome Project - July 4th, 2011

Next update. Not much. Spent a good portion cleaning sealer off the front of the roof and the trim.

We have been through 2 - 18 packs so far. Didn't have any this weekend. Opted for rum at night this weekend. And definitely say Yah. Hoping to get the chance to take her back there next year for a visit.

Anyway, on to the subject at hand:

Silver and Sky's Motorhome Project - July 10th, 2011

Getting down there. It is a race to the 21st. Plans are to be out of the apartment and into the motorhome by then, leaving us a week max to finish cleaning the apartment. Should be an interesting 11 days

Amazing work- looks great!

If you're still looking for that mattress, you might check Wally World for their memory foam mattresses. We bought a modestly priced 8" mattress, and trimmed it to fit with an electric carving knife (after unzipping and rolling back the thin fabric cover)

We have the benefit of it being a full queen (60x80) space, but height is another issue. Testing laying down on the boards, we figure we have 10" of play before we are up against the ceiling. To account for space to move a tiny bit, we are trying to find something maybe around 5" thick. JCPenny has some foam mattresses that thick, but if we can find an actual mattress at that thickness (imagine how old that would be!), we might snag it. We have a couple inch memory foam topper that we may use if we get something thinner.

You might want to call an upholstery shop, and check on the price for pin-core latex foam in the thickness and size you need.

Pin-core should give you the greatest density and resilience per inch of thickness; its expensive but also the highest quality and most durable.

Sky thats some outstanding work ya got goin on there. I'll be doing the same thing hopefully soon (i've been saying that for like 2 years now). I'm scared to death on how to approach it. I hope mine is in as good of shape that yours was.... but i doubt it. I noticed when you rebuilt the frame around the big forward window, in the corners it looked like you used some type of clips that rounded out the edges? what are they?
how did you secure the framing horizontally and vertically and what did you use as framing? 1x2's?
thanks man and keep up the good work!

They were corner clips that I carefully pulled off of the original framing and reused lol.

I used 2x2's, even though many areas on the original framing used 1x2's. I opted for a tad bit more sturdiness in my rebuild. Screwed the framing together and put it up. I had the major benefit of the sides and roof being hollow steel tube framing, so some self tapping screws to hold the new framing to that, and I was good to go.

Best of luck on yours!
