Lots of work!
Beautiful job.

Was that particle board (OSB) you used on the floor. Didn't see it used anywhere else in the rebuild. Why not use plywood on the floor?

Not my project - I should have made that clear - someone else.
I just admired the dedication (and the end product....) and figured we needed something other than politics and guns once in a while....

I liked the spectrum of colours used in the interior.

And thanks for the diversion from the politics and guns.

HA! While you were diverted they took your freedom and your guns. Sucker!

What a brilliant rebuild.

nice, I learned the hardway that remodeling the inside of a camper takes some special consideration. For example, the cabinets at your house do not vibrate at 75 MPH or go 4-wheeling.

Nah... never happened. I still have my rights and freedoms and still can purchase/own a gun.

Have you checked? These things are insidious and must be constantly monitored.
;)

I emailed (this is very 21stC) the link to the pics to SWIMPAL, so when she wakes up she can enjoy the rebuild. At some stage in the next year or so we'll might end up living in a caravan......
