OK, here is the rest of the story…. A few months ago, we remodeled our travel trailer due to a crack in the fiberglass shell and our family was growing and we needed more space. These are the pictures of the completed job. There were a few things we did to upgrade that I didn’t have pictures for and I wanted to share. The biggest of those was we added a solar array to our RV. It was a surprisingly easy upgrade thanks again to the Great Library of our day: the Internet and YouTube. Here is the link I used: Solar Panel Tutorial. Also we added an Olympian Wave Gas Catalytic Heater, and LED lights: the reason that we added these things to the upgrade was because we do a fair amount of “Dry” camping (aka Free), where power is not available. The setup of the trailer before often caused us to bring the power generator and we still would still run out of power. Meaning on cold nights it was as cold inside as it was outside because the heater fan would suck all the power and die. Sorry for not including pictures of these upgrades. But with out further ado here is a completed project.
This is a picture of the front of our trailer. It’s all about storage in these picture. Under each bench there is tons and tons of storage. The couch in front is where the table is kept, along with the extra chairs if needed. We love this because most of the time we never bring it out. If we come in for a quick snack, the kids grab a sit and eat (and that is only if it is not nice outside.) Without the table there is enough room to put Abby’s play and pack and have enough room for the rest of us. With all the storage there is a place for everything and everything in its place
The before picture
Here is the kitchenette, one fun thing we found when we when breaking everything down was the frig’s door cover with black on one side
(which what it was before) and silver on the other. So we where able to flip the door cover around for a updated look. We also added some clearance glass beads to the back splash. That was the only things was changed in the kitchen but I think it looks better than the old one. What do you think?
The Before picture….
This area had some major changes. The sink and medicine cabinate were removed and a floor to ceiling closet added. This was a number one requirement for Merriann. Pre-Remodel the trailer had NO place for clothing/towels ect. Now we have ample storage for the whole family. A full size bunk was also added above the main bed.
Another before picture, Please notice the door.
This is a picture of the New LED lights we got. They use 1/10 of the power the old light used. Meaning more light per battery charge. We got them from the local boat supply store which was cheaper that the RV store. And there was more of a selection to choose from.
The interior light we had before.
Here are a few pictures with our family models.
Overall this was a great project. Like all projects, it was time consuming, a lot of hard work but fun and there is nothing like having a fully custom travel trailer. It looks like we are ready for camping!!
