As some of you have already seen, I have posted some before and after pictures of the exterior of my redone TT. If you have not seen them yet, check them out. I have a little more work to go on the outside and then I will move to the inside. The rocker panels are really dented so I am going to cover those up with some polished aluminum sheet metal to add a nice detail along the bottom. I also will be adding a vinyl swoosh to bring a little more definition to teh side stripe.

I started this project in Sept. by purchasing the TT for $275. I plan to have about $2,000 into the trailer by the time I am done. I started by gutting the inside including the fridge, stove, plumbing, and sinks. I have already stripped the roof and re-sealed that as well as rebuilt the rotted door and painted the exterior. My next step is to remove the paneled ceiling from the interior and install new insulation. Once that is done, I will be installing galvinized steel on the ceiling to gove it that airstream feel even though it's not. The plan is to paint all of the cabinets and trim white with galvinized details throughout. The plan is to install a few appliances that only run on electric as the places we camp all have water and electric. I have lots of plans and will keep posting pictures as I get it done. The goal is to be camping in it with my wife and son this summer.

Yeap, you've been bitten. There's no hope for you now. LOL.

It's a lot of fun reworking these old trailers. Take your time and do it right. Don't cut one corner. Or you'll have to go back and rework it again. I know.
My brother always told me when I'm working on a project "To do at least one thing everyday no matter how small". If you do, you'll find it goes faster then you think. Next thing you know you'll be waiting on summer to show so you can get busy again, like me.

Have fun.. Get the your son involved too.
