Wow! I am blown away by the living room and that floor it really steps up the game on it. Is that real wood or the composite ones. (The wife wants real wood in our, but I think it will scratch too easy with us walking inside wearing our dirty hiking boots! )
Is that the original couch? Very practical! I don't have the room to use on of those, wish I did!
He bathroom looks great too!
I rate this rebuild 2 thumbs up.

Thank you for the compliments, The floor is Pergo (laminate). Laminate flooring is great for RV's because it is a floating floor and it is able to move and flex with the RV without damage. Laminate is also surprisingly durable. Our dog runs on the floor all the time and his nails don't hurt it. The furniture is all brand new, we got some quotes on getting the old furniture re upholstered and new furniture was about 25% less. Bathroom floor and counter tops, kitchen counter top, and new lower cabinets in the bedroom all have granite tiles installed with a flexible latex adhesive. The grout is also a flexible latex based grout. If you have any further questions on the flooring feel free to ask, I would be happy to help.

I showed the wife your pictures and promised her that this Winter she could get inside our coach and gut it so we could do ours like that and she got all giddy. This woman loves to take stuff apart, but leaves most of the reconstruction up to me to do. We used to flip Houses when the Economy was better and she has her own wrecking bar.
Now all I have to do is get her to agree on the color of the new floor.

Nice forum! I love seeing all the other vintage RV's! We just got ours a week ago and took it out over the 4th of July weekend. 1980 Winnebago LLT 18 footer. We flipped the axles beforetaking it out, good thing as there was a broken weld on a bracket!

You don;t see too many of the Winne trailers around. How many did they make.

I can probably count on one hand all of the Winnebago trailer that I have seen. There are a couple of Yahoo groups you can find that are dedicated to vintage travel trailers. This would expand you knowledge base.
