I have the skills, but not the cash, and time seems to be at a premium as well, even though I am retired!

I rebuilt the door a few years ago - it wasn't the original having been replaced once before. Re-framed it and put new paneling on the inside. Put heavy mesh over the screening to keep the dog from ripping the screen. It needs paneling again already.

Wow, Ted! You have skills I don't have. I hope I can ask for advice when I need it? I'm pretty handy, but I'm learning as I go. I'll update pics as I go. I actually rebuild my door in my NYC apartment.

And a new vent with a fan. Then I started removing 47 years of accumulated roof coating of various types. Used kerosene to soften it, but that ran all down the sides, so I mixed up some napalm, which worked better but took a huge amount of styrofoam to make a small amount. Finally just did the scraping on very hot days with small amount of kero. Then removed the oil film with brake cleaner and painted it with Calcor roof coating. Still have half of that to do. My stove is rusted also. The counter was replaced once before with particle board - I replaced that with plywood and seeing what the laminate cost, I covered it with commercial floor tile and waxed it well. I want to repanel the inside and check for rot in the walls.

While doing the work I put in some styrofoam insulation.

I had to reinforce the roof rafters back in 2014. Too many years of heavy snow loads had taken a toll. The rear half of the camper still has to be done overhead.

This is the current state of my baby. I am rebuilding the galley area from the door forward. I bought a stove to replace my old one. It was pitted and chrome platted. I got a new sink and I finally got the entrance door rebuilt. So I hope to be camping by maybe june. Next winter I'll tackle the back end.
