2002 Artic Fox 29 5T Renovation

My 2002 AF is in need of serious love. I plan on new skin exterior, new wood, foam board insulation, new floor for slide out, new interior walls for main slide and new roof. I will get some pics going once I find a spot to upload them.

It’s delaminated with water damage to some wood. Mainly below the lower horizontal trim piece.

Thumbs down

I bought a trailer (at night) for my daughter a few years back. I ended up putting on new skin on one side,pulling the skin off the front and back and re-doing the wood wherever it needed replacement. I also removed the slide roof beam, and replaced it with a plywood beam. I also replaced the roof rubber, and most of the roof plywood. I have a huge shop, and all the tools I needed to do the job. It was the job from hell. Please take it from me (burn it). I had like 8 people to help hang the fiberglass side, and even with the special glue I bought, it still bubbled afterwards, even though I used new luan plywood. I could have built a house in the time it took to do this job. I was never so happy as the day we sold it. Dave=R
