Wall panel sheets. There's a local manufacturer, Trimac Panel Products, that makes the already vinyl sheet covered panels that looks identical to the ones into new RVs.

http://www.trimacpanel.com/decorator_patterns.php

I'm using the textured ones for the ceiling and the "Sea Mist" pattern ones for the side walls. Mr. Plywood is where I buy them. They also sell the trim strips that match.

When's done, the interior will look like a modern RV, only the outside and the vintage appliances will suggest that she's actually much older.

I am considering it also Tim. My bedroom walls are capet and all will be coming off when I remove the windows for re-sealing. I was thinking about 1/8 inch birch plywood also. Thanks for the response and link,Redneck.

There are more coming, I'm just behind on posting, been focusing on getting things done in what seems a vain hope of making a Rally (I honestly need help, a second pair of hands that understands how to cut and measure would half my work).

New Paint

After a year of messing around and looking for good days to paint out side, I had someone finish what I started. I painted the backend so I could install the lights and plate so we could go some place. I epoxy primed the front from entry door to drivers door and did a lot other grinding and sanding. Couldn't wait for anymore good days so I took it in. They did a great job on this old coach

Wow they did so a wonderful Job. Are those original colors? I would like to have the front and rear caps re painted on my 82.I was quoted a price of $2250.00 for just the rear cap. Is that ball park of your cost? I'm in the process of repairing damage done by PO. And my self.
Yours really looks nice.
Tim

Not original colors, darker and more metallic, he charged me 2200 and I supplied the primer, base and clear coat, reducers and other supplies that I had bought for this. He did a lot of small prep work and I'm real happy. There is a problem though......it makes the top look bad, need to get back to removing terrible aged decals and finish compounding the thing. Been too hot to do that, or at least for me. I can't get it back home now, the wife is loving the rec club to much to leave.

Finally completed the Flat Screen TV install.

We have had some issues with this. Took out the old tube TV which was very heavy. Found a Flat Screen TV to fit in opening and made a bracket to mount it, made a new frame for outside of TV and installed and the TV worked but the VHS tapes would not. DVD worked fine too.

DH ordered a HDMI cable to add and in taking out the TV he dropped it and it busted. Ordered new TV which arrived yesterday. Went out and installed it and the new cable and everything is working just fine. While we were at it we added a surge protector.

Looks great and even in the storage barn we got several channels on the TV. Checked the roof and will need to touch up some caulking before we leave the barn.

Will be adding the device to the bat wing antenna that adds HD TV capabilities when we get it out of there too.

We pretty much have completed the work we wanted to do to this rig since we bought it a year ago. I did want to replace the carpet with carpet but with a slide out we aren't comfortable about doing it ourselves. Priced it to be done and it was over $4,000 and I don't want new carpet that bad. Unless one of you can show me a video that shows an easier way to do it I think we are stuck with the old stuff.

Loft Bed

A while ago we replaced our sofa with a L shaped one that pulls out and got rid of our booth (which took away one of our sleeping spaces). We love the layout but we were just throwing a mattress where the dinette was for our youngest. I decided to try to use the wasted space over the captains chairs ( with the new couch it cuts off access to those spaces ) and made a loft for my youngest. I used heavy duty closet rods for the cross pieces and plywood with 2x2 wood pieces on either side of the closet rods to hold them in place. I used 3/16 cable and eyelet lag screws for the ones in the front to suspend the front closet rod. My wife and daughter are very happy and it should make camping more enjoyable.
