That exposed black of the roof is like soot! It smears, and goes a long way! You should see my clothes!

Eventually, when I'm finished with all my roof repairs (mainly resealing all the penetrations), I will buy some of that RV roof coating.

After that, it'll be white again!

If you look at the first pics of the first post, you'll see that the RV was parked under a tree. It sat there for 6 years after the husband died.

The branches did that....what a shame...





Having lived in RI my entire life, that's my team!



I'm glad that you enjoyed it. Maybe it'll help provide some insight on what's involved to someone else contemplating an RV revival.

Grew up in Maine, was a fan when they sucked🙂. Lucky in the past few decades that is not the case anymore. Got my jersey on and ready to watch.

Green Bay, or Atlanta? It's 7-0 Atlanta at the moment...

Oh, I get that! I was asking who you think will win the early game...Atlanta or Green Bay.

With one quarter left in that game (right now) it looks like Atlanta. And they're gonna be tough to beat in the Super Bowl!

This is all assuming that the Pats win (never guaranteed...).

You're a brave dude to tackle this job, but it looks good. I think you made a good call on the Owens-Corning pink batting for insulation--it's gonna be toasty in there if you need to winter camp. What about some type of reflective material to help keep it cool in the summer? Just a thought. Keep it up, and keep the pics coming!

On a positive note, I don't think we will be seeing any posts from you asking where is this wire or duct in my trailer.

Doesn't reflective only work if it's on the outside, or if the sun can hit the shiny side of the insulation? If the reflective insulation is inside the walls, will it still reflect? If so, I didn't think of that. I just wanted something similar to what was in there originally.

I took a lot of pictures of all the wiring of the lights, etc. that I had to remove to take the outside "skin" off of this camper. Good think that I did...there's a lot of things that share the same wiring! Without all these pictures, I'd have a real hard time remembering how all this goes back together.

Wow. Great job! If you plan to have a satellite dish, you should run cables and a power feed while it's exposed.

Same point for Solar power.

I was on the roof on Sunday. I went inside first, to raise the antenna (Antennatek) and it wouldn't raise. So, I removed the mast, to figure it out.


So, is a dish a popular upgrade?


Not knowing much about solar power, or camping in general, I'll probably not go that route.

Not sure where your bathroom is, but most bathroom fans don't work unless the light switch is turned on. If you want to run the fan, but not the light, you have to turn the light switch on, then turn off the light at the light fixture. A real pet peeve for me.

If you've got things torn apart around the bathroom, you may want to separate the fan power from the light switch.

Interesting....I haven't really checked out things like that yet. Hopefully I won't have to tear into the bathroom too much, if at all.

I do plan on upgrading some things like the interior kitchen wall coverings where I had to piece in new wall luan sections to replace the old rotted area.

And, I'd like to install a new "hardwood" floor, window dressings, and new cushions.

We're gonna miss that nice dusty rose color, though......

You probably already know this, but be careful what you choose for your flooring. Not many types that can take the extreme temps, flexing, etc of an RV.

That looks great! Can you share a brand name? It is adhesive, or a floating floor?

It is Vinyl that looks like wood. It is adhesive. Just off the shelf in Lowes. I did that over three years ago in my old camper so I don't remember brand. They are about 3'to 4' long and 4" wide. It really upscale camper from old linoleum.
