New rig: Just enough room to change my mind, and not much more. There's a microwave hiding up there.

Dawn, that list is what we still have to do. But once the interior walls and the rest of the frames get their finish coat it should go pretty well. Second guessing paint colors but I think it will come together. Most important thing is getting new tires!!!! Paul said the Chevy still got 16.9 mpg even pulling the trailer back. But maybe it wasn't a long enough distance and we don't have all the stuff in it...cabinet doors, drawers, water tank, bed frame, toilet, sink, mattresses, dinette, cushions, couch, tools, and all of that other stuff piled in the garage and spare bedroom. Lol!!!! It's just s shell of its former self!

Oh that has to feel good to have all that stuff done and starting the countdown to camping (okay lying in a bunk painting doesn't sound fun).  I'll have to check that list out.  Guess I shouldn't freak out - I've given myself a whole summer to get Juno ready.

Least you got out today and enjoyed yourself - and just think - once this over you'll be doing that again :-)

Sorry for the typos. No edit here.

It will be fun to see you personalize it. It's s cutie.
We picked the trailer up from the RV place today. They re packed the wheel bearing, new seals, checked the brakes and put s missing spring on one and installed the fridge recall kit. They had it a week and a day. We had plenty of door painting and other things to do while it was gone. I went photographing (made up word) today because I know tomorrow I will be lying in a bunk painting. Ugh! I got to see some more wildflowers and blooming things. Yea!!! So we have 10 days before going camping. Marathon sessions. That list on my photos page!!!!!

You know it is actually perfectly usable except for the dinette foam being too squooshy - one bottoms out. No smells, rips, and the curtains, while faded, were still all in one piece–and looks like someone had just put down some new carpet with a nice padding underneath. Even painted recently (in fact we missed some rot I now have to contend with - but it may have happened after my BF picked it up - he's not the handy type - it was four months of snow and rain before I could tarp it).  My mom liked the yellow, but to me, it was all depressing.  Funny how we react to different palettes??  Now when I get done there will probably be a few headshakers, going hmmmm!  I like the whole gypsy boho look :-)

By the way, your interior is not bad at all! Much better than we are starting with I think!
