Going to the Dogs!!!

This K9 (All American) dog trailer just rolled off the assembly line. Each box is vented and has forced air. Sweet. Sometimes we get to do fun projects for our 4 legg'ed friends :). Enjoy

Movin on (2) - abridged

(I never kept a log or many pics when renovating anything before - now I wish I had on a couple of projects - so I'm trying to do that with this one and see how it comes out.)

Finished pulling up all old carpet and cheesy linoleum rolled flooring - not even the cushy stuff...

I used auto carpet and upholstery cleaner on my barrel chairs when I removed them to get at the floor. Seemed to make a noticable difference.

(Salvaged parts of a prior post restored…

Pulled Flooring Out

Well today I couldn't stand it any longer - I pulled up all the old flooring, carpet etc and ready to put a new surface down.

I am in the middle of redoing the back room into an office and jackknife sofa.  There was a queen size bed in there but it left no room for anything else.  And to reach the overhead cabinets, you had to kneel on the bed....  Nope, I can do with a full size bed and stand up in the room, plus have enough space for a real desk for my stuff.

Pulling up the…

I'm new to this site and to rving. I have started restoring/rebuilding this rv, we found a ton of water damage in the hangover and in the rear. The sub floor seems stout. But I have a few questions, first does any one know if the 78 dodge 440 had the hardend exhaust valves and seats? Also is the outside wood paneling necassary when i go back together or can I just hang the siding back on without it? And has anyone had good luck of painting the paneling?

My New to me 76 Roran

Hi there!  New to RVing and just purchased a 1976 Roran travel trailer.  I have never heard of this travel trailer and I cannont find any information regarding this trailer.  Any ideas?

I was impressed at the overall condition of the trailer.  Don't get me wrong, it needs some work, but it seems to be in pretty good shape.  Needs some work on the floor, the ceiling vents have a slight seep, nothing unexpected though.

On the short list is replacing a couple soft spots in the…
