great find and good posts. I am working on a 66, but not taking everything out..just what I have to, which so far has not been too bad. Ordered my flooring yesterday.

Wanna share what ya ordered? We are considering sheet vinyl if I can get the floor good and solid...and find a good pattern...

I hope we are avoiding 'the slippery slope', the driving factor is ugly interior paint...so the interior skin is coming out..."while I'm There"...new floors will be a good thing AND the old stinky insulation could be replaced..................

Sure-- I ordered Trafficmaster Allure vinyl planks. In my last trailer I used the antique elm, it looks great, is a breeze to install and basically waterproof.
This time I ordered their new cork look, which looks very much like real cork...which I have used in the past also.

This is how it looked in my 80 Excella..

My '64 Safari has two switches by the door: one porch light and one hitch light. They share the same coverplate in mine

8 hours today...decided to skip hunting and spend some time on Dolly...I figured I'd get the bedroom roof lockers down and the bathroom walls out. Got that done by lunch although I did have to destroy the first items of the project. The screws holding the curb closet cabinet to the roof were hopelessly stuck. I basically took the closet apart instead of removing it in one piece...I don't know whats worse - rust or paint. When pulling up the bath carpet I discovered that floor had been replaced...except under the bath tub...it must be setting on out riggers ,cause there is no wood under there. I did have enough time to remove the curb side skin and insulation...and made an interesting discovery - the roof centerline is bucked rivits! That is gonna be ONE BIG piece of aluminum when it drops!

Thanks - I'm following your thread and can't wait to see what it looks like. We are leaning toward some sort of vintage looking vinyl sheet but really havent made out mind on the pattern.

I can tell you from experience that is one big piece of metal, and mine was about 4 feet shorter than yours is, and bucked as well!

Ok...one big question...once the ceiling hits the floor...how does an average Joe get it out of the camper!!! I'm figuring that piece must be 8 x 18!

Hiho I just pulled all my interior panels. Roll them up and tie or duct tape the roll to keep it from unrolling. Oh yeah make sure your roll is smaller than your door opening.

Yup, that works good for the long 3' wide panels...I'm trying to make a plan for the roof segment that looks like it's 8'+ wide when it's rolled! I'm wondering if I have to tube it thru the front window!

As to flooring, go with MARMOLEUM over vinyl. No comparison in appearance or durability. (We used cork which I like even better. OSMO Hardwax oil for that).

ecohaus | marmoleum composition tile

Forbo Marmoleum

I sure like those earlier tandem axle trailers!

Ok, what is the notation for a California built International? Does it get an "I" in front also? Did they not build Internationals in Ca?

Ohio | 26 3 T NNN
(26 T 3 NNN late)
(I prefix for Int'l options)

California | 26 T(D)SS 0729 to 26 T(D)SS 0923

T=twin-bed layout; D=double-bedw

Oh...and a personal thanks to the person that, in the last 48 years, decided to use steel cored rivets on the interior...growllll!
