I'm impressed! You guys not only have talent but probably a lot of patience. What's the next project?

I'd love to take credit for this masterful accomplishment, but it is actually from an article I found this morning on boingboing.net

Beautiful teardown and rebuild of a dilapidated 1975 trailer - Boing Boing

This is their description: "Here's a long, long photoset of imakethenews and his girlfriend doing a complete teardown and rebuild of a seriously decayed 1975 Serro Scotty Sportsman teardrop camper trailer. The rebuild is clever, sensitive and ingenious, and the result is a an up-to-date but still nostalgic masterpiece."

FYI - - it's actually a '65 Scotty, not a '75

And this is what they said about their project: "The original trailer was $650 (American). The previous owner had planned on fixing it up himself, so he had just gotten new wheels, tires, and bearings, which would have cost around $300. I tried my best to keep all receipts during the project, but some got lost along the way. Also, some of the appliances and parts were given to us as gifts. That's the long way of saying that we don't know exactly how much the rebuild cost - but my best estimate is about $5500 on top of the $650 for the trailer."
