Looks really good, Terry! And should be able to cool as well as heat easy! Be carefull with the spray foam, and use the minimal expanding to fill the cracks, but you know that I'm sure! I did my garage on the farm that way, with the paperback foam board, and the spray foam to fill the cracks! I picked up the wrong foam once, and finished for the day and went to the house! The next day came out, Oh My,, That foam made a mess! Wish i would have taken a pic.! Hahahahaha! But after spending the day sawing the excess off and cleaning up the mess, i learned to check the labels better! Rail!

Good Day All, Rail, I did the same yrs ago in the S&B, didn't know how much to use, I did after , What I use now is industrial foam it will double in size, makes it nice to lock everything in place, now when I shut the door it sounds so much better, a nice thunck, instead of a tinny sound of the siding vibrating.

Terry,
When you nail down a date and we figure how many rigs we need room for, I will make the calls and give the phone numbers for reservations. I am looking forward to seeing the rig, I know it will be out of this world.

Sounds good Frank, usually a friend that goes with us on motorcycle trips might come along, he just bought a 5th wheel toy hauler after I started to build mine. I'm not sure how out of this world the TH will be, but hopefully it will be usable.

Looking at the pictures of what you have done so far, I am positive that it will be just fine. Hopefully, we will have 6 or 7 rigs that will meet up, this will make a good get together, if not, the 3 rigs will do just fine.
Frank

Pheeeeew, I just finished reading this whole thread !
Terry , you're doing a great job on your rig.

I'm thinking of doing my '81 class C from the floor up , roof leaking from the previous owner has done a number on it and your rebuild job is giving me the courage and more than a few ideas (thanks also to the crew here for some of those ) to do mine too !
I'm trying to live in it this winter up here in Maine , wish I had it to the stage you're at . That insulation would be real nice right now!

Add me to the list of followers anxiously awaiting the next step you complete. Especially the weigh in.

popeye the rv man

Popeye, Thanks! and welcome aboard . I've lived in a small TT many yrs ago on a logging site in the winter, so I know what you mean, stay warm and in the spring start in, slow and take your time, if your living in it, you'll only be able to do a small section at a time. Biggest thing is to have a plan, (I did I just kept Changing it). Good Luck and keep us posted!

Good morning and Merry Christmas.

A plan is just that - something to gauge your performance by. By comparing what is happening to what is planned you can see when things are leaving the path. Then you can do a couple things. Change what you are doing so the plan is accomplished or change the plan. It is good to write the plan down, especially for complex projects. Also helps to clarify the steps necessary so you do not have to undo stuff in order to install something.

Popeye - post a few pictures and we will give you lots of free advice. It is always a pleasure to help someone, especially if it helps you avoid having to undo work. If you are living in it I am sure you have thrown a tarp over the top to keep out any additional moisture. Start a thread and post the pictures. Let us know what you call your thread and we will look forward to observing your trials and tribulations.

Good Afternoon All, Gordon, The plan is all in my head , I am used to having complex problems not written down, like I said before, I used to build race cars from the ground up, and I did this primarily by myself, I knew the measurements and the angles and by looking knew where things had to go and when. Then came this trailer, I did lay things out on a computer sketch up program, then I didn't have to refer back, I had it in my head, (that can lead to problems) but things are working out, I can see an end in sight even thro its a long ways off.

rebuild

Weather is still unusually warm here, so I was able to install the water heater thru the wall and get it all buttoned up.

Terry, 2 things, don't forget the check valve on the hot water pipe. And 2nd, make sure that you have access for the bypass valves to winterize it when needed.

rebuild

Hi Frank, Thanks for the tip, I checked the water system that I removed from the "donor" FW,it only has one, one way valve I thought most had two, one for the city water, and one before the water pump in oppoite directions. Hmmm I have to look this over. I will have access because I am building a platform around the heater and fresh water tank, above that is going a very short couch that will pull out to a single bed, for an extra bed. I will be able to winterize from a valve thats on the pump.
