Not sure if our rig classifies as vintage being 7 years old but I read this thread all the time and thought I would post.

We just ordered a custom reclining love seat for our MH. Took us awhile to find the perfect style as we wanted the arms to match the leather sofa. The fabric we picked is a perfect match to our accessories and the length will fit like a glove. Now we just have to wait.... 6 week delivery quote > 4 more weeks until it arrives.

Can't wait..will post pictures when it's installed.

counted leaks

I am brand new with a 40 yr old trailer in an epic rain/wind storm. It seemed as if water was pouring right through the glass! I have much work to do and no idea where to start. I bought a really nice large tarp to cover the entire roof and the side with leaky windows since the storm windows did not just pop in lol :/

Today will be some more interior wiring. Power to the front tv and some outlets for other electronics. Terminating of the RG6 cable and installing the new antenna and the Cable input jack. Hoping the dinette come back from the upholsterer.

Bounder Remodel

Over the past two years we have been remodeling the inside of our RV redoing the counter tops with Giani counter top paint, ( Giani countertop paint ) installing a tile back splash ect we decided to do a major remodel of the inside. The last two weekends I installed a hardwood floor in the kitchen and bathroom area as well as installed new carpet. We took out one of the chairs behind the passenger captains chair and installed a new couch and installed an electric fireplace. I removed the booth and found some oak folding chairs that don't look like a folding chair and reused the booth table. When we aren't using the table and chairs we can take it down and store it under our bed making the inside seem so much bigger. We also replaced the short queen with a standard queen mattress. We couldn't be happier and can't wait to take it camping.

Thanks
Adam

Well it was to nice a day to run the 120 volts to the front tv. Instead I installed the King Jack Antenna on the roof where the old broken crank up was. I used a plate that king sells to mount the new jack antenna and cover all the holes from the old crank up. the old one came off in pieces. I also did a test fit of some Wainscoting that I had left over from a household project. It will be going along the lower walls as soon as I get to Home Depot and pick some more up.

Re installed the furnace after lubing the motor and painting all of the blower housing parts. Looks and sounds like new now.

It looks like a propane detector? No batteries, hard wired to your 12v system. It also could be a co2 detector.
