Nice work Cliff, anything happening on the inside you can share there?

Setup @ Winton Woods in Cincy OH

First time warm weather use, things are going well.
BTW, Winton Woods is a great place to stay, basically in Cincinatti, but the sites are really nice.

On the inside there will be a 32" TV going in in a couple of weeks. Haven't decided on Dish or OTA yet. New curtains are needed along with new reflective foil on the windows. New bed mattresses are going in also. Might go all natural latex for the beds. Everything else works a designed. Added a spray nozzle to the toilet. Real good shape for a 77.

What is OTA?

Does the foil go on the inside or outside?
Does it impact your view?


Thanks, Tony

OTA is over the air signal.

OTA from what I've learned is 'over the air" TV like we used to have when I was a kid. I guess some TV (major Networks etc) still send out that way AND in HD. It's all free if you have a digital TV or decoder box and an antenna and are in range of the transmitter (just like the old days). Lots of "how to make antennas" on youtube and you may need to point it at the station (again just like we did back in the old days). May not work out in the boonies. We're going to try that and DVDs on our trip to see how we like it. I'd rather read on a vacation than watch the one eyed monster.

The window foil is a commercial product (Lowes, HD) to go on the inside of the windows to block sun and heat from getting in. It keeps the inside a lot cooler and saves the drapes and furniture from sun burn. During the day you can see out but those outside, can not, for the most part, see in, but at night with lights on inside, they can see in and you can see out. Looking out is slightly darker than with no foil. It sure keeps it cooler inside though.

mchek' that is a great starting point for a lot of fun. It's straight on the outside, no dents. That's good. I don't know what your rebuild abilities are but nothing on a TT is too difficult. Just take your time and research everything. Good luck with your project!

That is going to be a real gem when you've done your repairs..

Great looking trailer!

Im pretty handy, and my dad and father-in-law are both experianced in stuff like this so it should be fairly easy. im real excited to take my first trip in it with it all fixed. i borrowed it last summer and that was when we discovered all of the little issues, luckely that trip we just needed it to sleep in and it did the job perfect. the largest expense im going to have is the fridge needs to be replaced and i would like to install an ac, but i think im going to try and get both used so even that shouldnt be to bad.
