I cannot believe the guy that is helping us came on this windy, cold day but he did. We got the insulation in and started on a little of the new paneling. It's a shame we will have to paint it. The camper was painted when we got it and we sure do not want two tone.

well today I have been sick for the most part, but I managed to get some cleaning done inside from my recent renovations and I went to the lumber store and got 2 more sheets of Luan,
I got my microwave in, it is 700 watts compared to the 1200 watt one I had. and I ordered my convection oven, it is 1200 watts compared to my other one that was 1800 watts I tried to find 2 that would match color wise as well as match my stainless refrigerator.
I found some great welting. I purchased the fabricate and the 1/8"piping and I had a upholstery shop sew it up for me. $35/supplies and $75 to sew it together. I didn't like what VTS offered and I sent it back. Very happy with it.

Today we made a safe journey home from a 4 night camping trip about 3 hours from the house. Parked our little guy safely back under his Shastaport just before this big storm that is covering most of GA made it here and then i gave him his end of the season wash. Got all the bugs off the front, all the mud off the front and side (ran through wet mud today and it covered his white paint, cant let that GA red clay mud stay and stain the paint). Flushed out his sink trap and filled it with antifreeze. He will not see any action until our next trip in the spring.
Every trip out and back is a successful one. Happy to be home, in a comfy chair, by a warm fire, sorting photos, editing videos and posting to VSTF!!!
Last night I got my trim that holds the front window in removed with only bending one piece;( Then I removed the broken glass out of the window without it breaking into big chucks and cutting me. Night before fixed the shelves in my cabinet that was loose and falling apart. Last weekend I got my running lights all working and started my rear window A/C install. I hope to get my to-do list finished before camping season gets here. Last year I didn't have an A/C but this year I hope to enjoy camping and not working on the camper till next winter some more. Like I tell my wife if I fix just one thing a day I'll be finished before you know it!!!! This coming weekend I hope to finish my DS wall that has fallen. Luckilly I have a nice dry but cold shop to work in.
I'm going over today to check things out (camper's 12 miles or so away) after the two snowstorms we had. Check the tarp, fire up the furnace, take some measurements for counters and my bed-couch, sit there and visualize...
My farmer landlady is having her forest thinned, and they are going to plow a road in for all the heavy equipment, so maybe they'll run it close enough to my camper that I don't have to traipse across 300 yards of snowfield to get to it...
After a taking a 6 month vacation from working on our Starflyte, Got around to checking out the electric brakes and the hub bearings. Bearings look fine, just need a quick cleaning & repacking. However, I will be buying a new set of brakes. Looking at getting a set of Dexter NEV-R-ADJUST brakes.
We picked out the laminate for the table and countertop. Hubby worked on interior trim and we ordered a bunch of odds and ends from Vintage Trailer Supply. After days and days of ugly, rainy weather, we finally had a beautiful day! Oh, and we moved her back to her original spot in the backyard. We had moved her out in the middle of the yard to take some Christmas pics. Since we're in a subdivision that has extensive rules about RV's, we have to hide her behind a lattice with various giant Texas flags hung strategically in front of her : )
Not working on a Shasta at present. Going stir crazy with this weather keeping us indoors. We did brave the cold and wind today and managed to stay outside long enough to install a new bathroom light fixture in Lopo' s Frollc.

Today my dad and I got Coralees floor in. Went with laminated wood (not my first choice). It's hard to explain to an old dude that you would rather have coral and white squares. Someday she will. Also put the new aluminumm on the front. I bought a sheet from the local steel supply and had my son put the breaks in it. It's thicket than original and thats fine by me. Maybe it won't dent as easy.
