Wifey and I got home a couple weeks back and our 1962 Winnebago TT project is back underway. Still removing all the old paneling but almost done. She's decided (it's her TT) that instead of going back to original, the interior is being done "cowboy". Anyone used the 3/8 inch benderboard sanded and painted? This stuff is cut cross grain and supposedly you can bend around an 8 inch pole? Bucks are a factor with us so I opted out on the birchwood paneling replacement. It also appears we will have an operational furnance to sell. It's original Travl'r if anyone is interested. Still can't believe all the spiral nails and staples in this paneling.

Welcome back Montana. Sounds like your Winny is going to be a treasure. One of the things I like most in these vintage rigs is the quality of construction. Well, in most of them anyway. The Ken-Craft ceiling was attached using those spiral nails, not one has come loose in all these years. The walls,cabinets,beds,drawers,ect. are all ash plywood nailed or screwed and glued. Not a staple to be found. Sure beats wallpaper on masonite or in some cases cardboard. Keep us posted on your progress. Happy Trails!!
