Was that old trailer a Lo-liner? Looks sorta like one we had back in the '70's, but had a bed that could be dropped down above dinette if needed.

Not that it's pertinent to this thread, but ours was an Aristocrat - about 20-22 footer as I recall, pretty nice camp trailer, relatively light and easy to tow...

What was the result?

This was an interesting thread, lots of hard work was going on with this old RV.

Now I'd like to see the end results.

Knock, knock are you there Sameee?

Sameee ... With what you have done so far with the upholstery job, you're going to turn out a fine looking motorhome. Stick to your guns on the outside paint job ....... camo, ugh!
Good luck and keep giving us photos as you progress.

well since the cooler weather is here I have been a busy little bee. not on my rig tho, but for the rig, I got a 5th wheel give to me to demo and part out, alot to use on my rig the rest I am going to sell to get anything needed for my rig,
I got a water heater
power converter and charger
nice colman heater
if the frig was not so big and would fit in mine I would use it too
inside lights
and so much more

so as I get stuff done I will add before and after pic's
some day I'll get to go on the road with this little rig

Craiglist every other piece of that 5th wheel, you'd be surprised at how much cash you can rake in from parting out old Rigs, especially those with working parts.

Another way to remove old tint, especially here in Az. when it gets burnt from the sun is with gumout carb cleaner. Have to careful about spraying it in an enclosed area, but it turns the tint kinda white and brittle. It scraps right off then.

You are doing a great job on the upholstery. Glad the poo smell has gone away.
Vinyl is nice for flooring but not as warm as carpet.
What did you buy for the floors?

The outside looks pretty good. You might try some good quality auto wax and/or polishing compound on the paint. My old '87 Itasca looks pretty good after my son waxed it and I repainted the stripes.
I don't think camo is a good idea either.

I realy love working on this rig, it's not going to look the same when I get done with it, we are going to put vinyl on the floor, I would like carpet but vinyl is easyer to keep clean, with 2 hunters useing it that will be a plus lol,
I did do a search on CL and found prices from rims to the bathtub. and yes there is a lot of $$$$ there. plus the $$$ I am going to save on the things I use for my rig.
the outside does need a new paint job. up close you can see it looks like they used house paint on it and it is peeling a lot.

it is slow going but hope one day I will have it done.
