Brought home a Fleetwood Prowler

Had a busy holiday weekend. Wanted to upgrade from our Jayco Eagle10 Popup, so went and found a rebuilt 1984 Fleetwood Prowler 16 Lite.

PO had restored the entire flooring with new wood joists/subfloor and lineolium.
Used 2x4s(layed on sides) for front nose/backwall and around window areas and roof. New 2x2's used for the rest of sidewalls.
Some new wood in rafters, but mostly reinforced for better load conditions and resealed/coated.
I would guess with using larger dimension wood for reinforcement and upgrade over factory, trailer is probably 300lbs heavier, but worth it.
Kept same basic interior layout due to where bathroom plumbing was, but put in many new interior panels along with some new wallpaper and a change of interior fabric/window treatment to red and black. All new caulking/silicone on interior/exterior of trailer.
All new trailer rewiring with new exterior tail, clearance lights along with extra exterior clear lights for better surround.
Upgrade to refrigerator/freezer to an automatic control center w/automatic pilot lighting.
The exterior metal is original and still in very nice shape and was reused, but could use some new channel screw covers, and exterior needs a good scrubbing to get off the chalky residue that happens over time.

Sorry, I don't have pictures yet. I'm sure I got somebody in family that can give me a hand on setting up.
