This is the trailer that I bought in Florida and brought back to Tennessee. She is a little rough on the inside but I hope to make it comfortable.

HEY!
I don't think it looks that bad at all....I think you have a good foundation to work with and will have quite a showpiece when you get done!!!!!!!

Think of how fun it can be...think of how fun a retro-theme could be....you'll have a definate one-of-a-kind...unlike the run of the mill stick-n-staple.

Looking forward to seeing the end product and watching your progress....keep us all posted with pictures!!!

Mary I still have the cushions from the U shaped "living room" from my Barth. You may have them if we can figure a way to get them to you. They could get you back to the 70's if you're going for retro. Dick

Dick, thanks for the offer of the cushions but I think I am going to replace the dinette that goes there with a wrap-a-round counter and bar stools.

But if I change my mind maybe you can meet us in Florida this year.

I won't be able to work on it for about a week and then only to clean up. I promise to keep pictures coming.

We took truck and trailer to scales today and the total weight was 8140, will take truck only tomorrow so we can see what trailer actually weighs.

Thank you Tim&Gayle, progress is slow due to the heat but hope to bring it to the GTG in December in Florida.

How is the progress on yours coming along?

Looks like a cool project. Maybe you could get an air conditioner running so work can be a lot more. mechanic
