Great looking rebuild. What are your plans for interior paneling.

I think you are smart to rebuild being you have the time & skills. It will come out how the two of you want it.

Thanks for the incourgement, my wife has been researching for interior paneling and we keep going back and forth on what to use, its actually fun and part of the build. The only thing we agree on is that we don't want a "house" look, I owned a Auto and Motorcycle repair shop that I sold to an employee and riding has been a very big part of our lives. That being said we kinda wanted a Harley theme, something very useable that we don't have to spend a ton of time "keeping up". We are going with FRP for the ceiling, easy to keep clean and brite but the sides is still up in the air. I should be working on the front today yesterday had a prediction for rain so we had everything covered, so more pics are coming!:thumb:

Linoleum on the floor as its easy to maintain & easy to replace when needed. JMO

We found a black and white checker (one piece) that has a texture for non slip in the garage part but hadn't decided on the living quarters but your right I think linoleum will be high on the list. The ceiling and floor will be the first in then the walls.

Awesome... The re build process is so fun to watch. I am looking forward to seeing you final project. We are at the end of a year long re build. It turned out better than we envisioned. As far as walls go, we used luan covered with different paintable wallpapers. The wall paper textures (which was MOD 70's) gave us the retro look we were going for. Keep the pics coming.

Thats funny you should say wallpaper, my wife has been looking at wallpaper and there are so many options. Here is the nose ready for underlayment.

Front window is a weak point of many RVs. Eventually they are going to leak. That is why you see more & more class C motorhomes with the bunkover front window removed. Side windows will give you plenty of light in there. :cool:

I agree, you can see by the pics that there is huge windows on the sides up front, besides the nose cone will give me 18" of storage at the middle.:thumb:

Just got the underlayment on the nose, going to let it set overnight with the straps holding it so the adhesive sets, along with screws and staples then its ready for aluminum siding!

Don't let the cart get infront of the horse with the walls. You still have plumbing & electrical to do.

Can't wait to see your finished project! Looks like your going to have many memorable moments!

Harley1944 and Mrs Harley1944, You two are very brave but I think you will also love doing this. I look forward to seeing your progress and the finished product. WOW! I'm looking for used but not anything with this much work to do to it.

Have a great time with it! You will get plenty of good advice here. Others have done big redos and posted so they are out there.
