Looks great and the white will help brighten up the inside of the trailer. Just because they didn't use white boards years ago doesn't mean you shouldn't. It's your trailer fix it to suit you and your needs.

well I got one more wall up today, this one is FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic) since it is a wall to what will be the shower/bathroom. along with the bathroom vent cover and light switch cover added.
I love it. My Wife is also insisting on White Interior. She is from South America where only poor people leave wood. That wood look is for those who cannot afford paint. Like Cabbage. One would never eat cabbage unless they lost everything and lived under a bridge.
I see your point, brokevet. I love antique furniture, but my mom would only have light colored, new furniture because all the furniture they had growing up was old and dark. There is something to be said for a light colored interior in a small trailer. It really brightens up the place.

the link to it was in the thread, I got it from RV parts nation, but they dont have it listed on their website now, several other places carry them but the price is a lot higher, try searching for "RV shower pan" or part # M2835TW, i'm not sure that is my exact part # but it is one like mine.
We got ours from an outfit in northern California. It was $200. We decided to do a porta-potti instead of a toilet, so it just sits on top (we had to build a base for the raised part as it's just plastic. It's about 20" wide and 32" long - JUST fit into the Hamlet's closet ('59 Compact).
Most of the wooden boats that I worked on were a combination of white paint and stained wood. Lots of marine varnish. They look good together for some reason. This is going to remind me of my boat building days.
God grant me the strength to restore the trailers I can,
The courage to strip the parts from the trailers I can't,
And the wisdom to know the difference.
