Red face Old girl coming home finally!!

This Thursday I am heading out to bring home the Nomad Project....FINALLY!!
Tires should be here Tuesday, and since the wife is going with I will have to wait till Thurs. afternoon to get outta town.

Deconstruction to begin next weekend.

BUT!!!

Since this is my first restoration, I could really use some help as to where to start? Floor, Ceiling, walls, (after interior is removed of coarse)? Seems the wife wants to do a total remodel.......not sure about that, but seems like a total gut except for the bathroom, until we can draw out some ideas.
I know photos, videos will help us keep track of what was done and how it was done before we get into it/as we get into it......any other help-pointers would be appreciated greatly.

Seriously we need to see pictures.

I would not do much recontruction until all of the demolition is done. Here is an example Total Rebuild Trying to build and demo is a tough task

First you have to decide what the final product will be. Then remove anything that does not look like the finished product. Then bring in stuff that looks like the final product. Then install the stuff that looks like the finished product.

Looking forward to the pictures of the original unit and hearing an idea of what the finished product will look like. Then the suggestions and opinions will inundate you.

oh the roof has leaked!!! Was planning to tarp it until I could see how bad the structure damage was before spending money to seal it up. Lots of moldy musty smell inside.
This trailer has been neglected for many years, and somehow my wife felt it was our job to bring it back to life.
Hope the weather holds out long enough to get it home and under cover.

Got it home, and as soon as the rain passes by, I will get out and take some photos showing just how much work I have ahead of me........Never could get trailer lights to work. While it was getting new tires put on I saw several wires cut and hanging so I am glad I had a magnetic set of tail lights with me. Tomorrow I go through and see if anything inside works. If they do then I press forward.....if not then we will re-evaluate if we want to go any further. Replacement appliances are not cheap and salvage yards dont seem to be an option around here.
