Work continues on cab over and Dad's new project...1977 Layton travel trailer

I think I finally have the corners of the cab over almost done.  This has been a pain in the royal arse for sure.  No fun.....but I'm nearing the end.

Dad called me at 7:00 a.m. and said "you gotta see what I got".  So, I drove over there late morning and find that he has another travel trailer to restore. I just knew it before I even got there. I knew the bug would hit him when I started mine. ;-)

It's a 1977 Layton.  Tires are in great shape, and for as old as it is, I think the inside was well taken care of.  There is some water damage, but it seems to have been concentrated at the back.  The front, including the pull down bunk looks great and sounds very solid...so far.

One major problem, financially, all of the appliances including the furnace and water tank are gone. Probably sold off just before it was parked.  The drivers' side of the trailer appears to have suffered a hail storm damage. It's dotted with little dents over the whole side.  We'll see what he decides to do on that.

I created an album with the before pics, you just gotta check out that lime green flooring.  Wow  LOL

There is an incredible amount of storage space in this, the closets look great and it appears that someone had started fixing the walls in the bathroom, in plywood pieces... but the ceiling needs removed and repaired.  At least the toilet is still there. LOL  The bathroom is so much nicer and bigger than mine.

He will have his done and fixed up long before I am road ready.  

Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday.  :)
