Here is a tip!

Use hollow core doors as wall material. Easy to cut as needed, lightweight, fairly cheap too. Get the without the door handle holes drilled. If you want them waterproofed for bathroom use, laminate a melamine panel to the wet side after you fit it, but before installing it. Quick coat of stain and lacquer...good looking walls.

Floors are cold. If you can afford it, insulate. Cut and glued in styrofoam blocks, spray foam, dunno. Even with real wood floors, my floors were always cold.

I had a '63 Kurbmaster converted to RV, rolled it in January. Dont short sell the Grumman, it will make an excellent RV. Tough as nails, not made of sticks and staples! Find a bad RV/trailer and rob the appliances, tanks and fixtures. Keep an eye on the wheels and lugs...
