week 1; decisions, decisions.....

removed bathroom - it was soooo tiny, didn't have a toilet, and was in gross condition. will do without one, use double kitchen sink for hand-washing etc.

removed all the shelves etc in rear (bedroom) area, which is now a nice open space w room for a queen size bed.

removed small hanging cabinet unit above the sink - and it will never return....

which leaves us w the fridge and adjacent storage area, and the storage area next to the stove... floor - ceiling, makes a nice functional divider between the front and back of the trailer.

need to repair back sub-flooring; then install wooden queen bed frame, tall enough to re-use 2 of the original bed frame-drawers;

after paint job: install new thin plywood sub-floor on top of existing; bamboo snap-together flooring in kitchen and front area, ca. 60 sq ft...

paint job: over original zolatone(?): kilz and off white interior acrylic/latex >>!!? pls advise if this is a bad combination/ will peel??? <<<<

Nice Sabine,
If you need to get rid of the stove and refridgerator let me know. Are you re-using the cabinet hardware and the Humphrey Gas light? I can use those too.

That large vent you're referring to is called an Astradome and is offered by Vintage Trailer Supply, too, but they are out of stock. They're supposed to get the new and cheaper version in soon. Here's the link:

sorry mello mike, for not responding to your PM -- got carried away by all this and real life too ;-) ... we do want to keep some of the LOOK, and whether or not the appliances need to be replaced depends on whether they work or not.... the fridge is an awful, rusted mess inside!
the gas light -- is just a small narrow unit that sticks out from the kitchen cab - we don't need it, also the gas line leading up to it....

You need to look at taking off the silver trim and then you should see the screws holding it in. Did for me.

Your gas lamp shaft is from a Veritas style lamp. Parts are scarce but can be sourced. As for the fridge, there are probably screws at the back down low on the fridge frame. Do you have the skinny broom closet by the entry door? If so, you can access them from there. Is there a gas line connected to the fridge or just a 120 volt plug?

You can also make your own AstroDome with 1" and 1/2" aluminum angle, some clear lexan sheets and salvaged lifter mechanisms. I have one on mine and am pleased with its looks and function. Let me know if you what me to post plans.
