Resurrection of Lilly (1962 Friendship Vacationaire)

Just bought a Friendship Vacationaire (1962).. Am resurrecting her to the glory of her original self.. Just started since the weather in Colorado at 9000ft has been a little chilly.. :)  Started on the inside and removing all the water damage and rotted floor (working from rear to front of trailer... Join me on my journey and enjoy...

Water tank - guessing around 10-15 Gallons.. Floor underneath is rotted

Removed floor -

Water damage inside - removing it all and putting in new veneer..

Today 3-16 I added new subfloor.. Rewired lights so wiring is inside the trailer, and re-did the ribs and framing for the vent... Looks great!!

I'm looking forward to following your blog. I own a 1965 Aristocrat trailer that I started working on last fall.
