Super Clean! Takes me to back to when we were caming on Dale Hollow Lake in the 60s & 70s, the highways were crawling with rigs looking a lot like this one.

Here's some pictures of our 1977 39' travel trailer that I restored and moved to our camping property. I bought it for $500 and dragged it home (lost one wheel on the way, no really, I lost it!). Parked it next to the house for about 4 months to gut and restore the inside and then towed it 100 miles north to our camping lot and did the outside (siding, metal roof, add deck, etc.).
Here's where it sat when I picked it up.


Gutted the inside

Here's the before and after of the living room.


Kitchen before and after.


Bedroom before and after.


Here it is on our lot and with the siding redone and a small deck.

Here's one from the front and after I built a porch and other space on to the back. You can still see the signature trailer window on the end. All in all it was a fun project and took less than a year of weekends and after hours time.

Cubine,

That is AMAZING!!!!! I think you really did make a silk purse from a sow's ear with this one.

Outstanding workmanship Cubine!

If I was handed that project I would use 5 gallons of gas and a match.

Thumbs up Nice, real nice

cubine,

Excellent work and what a nice "Camp". Are you in the mountains?

This is one great project that you have shared your talents here with us. I am sure you enjoy "camping out" in such a great space you created there.

Any more pics?

Nice, real nice.

Camping trailer restoration

Awesome job thanks for taking the time to post before and after pictures. I saw house trailers at the Rv show 2012 and the starting price was $30.000.You can come and remodel my camping trailer any day.!!!!

I am a new member and my wife Merry and I are proud owners of a 1984 Sportcoach lll. I will share some pictures if you promise not to laugh to hard and I can figure out the process for adding some photos. We have never RV'd before and we should have some good times figuring it all out. I just hope it does not put us in the poor house. I can fix just about anything having grown up on a farm however that has been some time ago.

Here is my vintage RV. It's a 1978 Nomad model 1920 I bought almost 2 years ago for $250.

What I started with:





Had to rip the floor out, rebuild the walls and entirely re-paneled it. This is how it sits today.
