Design?

This is a classic

One does not "redesign" the Sistine chapel...

One should restore and renovate...

Just my opinion

Considering the age of the trailer I am sure upgrades are in order. We have become more accustomed to all of the modern conveniences not available in years past.
The original style can be followed if that is what you, as the owner wish to do. If not, that is good too as most people who have been involved in an type of major renovation will appreciate what you are doing.

True to a point - but incorporating a few modern touches, while - if possible - restoring much of the original style and flavor, is understandable. Besides, I don't recall the OP ever offering this as a "restoration" thread - but primarily a thread or threads showing the process HE favors and has chosen to apply. After all, he and HIS family are the ones going to use the rig...

respect for all.

I really enjoy eveyone's input on this project. I would like to clarify that I did join this forum to simply share progress and in turn receive some much needed guidance. I am planning on preserving much of this rig, and am eager to implement modern day technologies ,taking care to respect the look and feel of the 1940's. The past is intriguing, and indulging in such an endeavor is not only a one of a kind experience but also an experience that involves goals that go behond completion. Practicality can be achieved without tainting the beauty of the past.
Thanks again for all your input.

Thumbs up

Whew, that takes a lot of patience to go through a project like that. I applaud you and cannot wait to see the end of this story. I love the older RV's.
