It trims out the joint between your cabinet and interior skin. I guess if itís not used you would see a open joint. If you caulked, I donít think it would last looking finished with movement while traveling. Thatís my guess. I like the 66 head lockers. Good luck.

I bought a 50' roll in beige color, but it's not a detail I've ever gotten around to.

Furrion stoves

Thanks for dropping the welt off last Saturday, Lee. Sorry I wasn't there to greet you.


On another topic - stoves - what do others think about Furrion stoves? I'm thinking of getting one of the stainless steel models to pair up with an Isotherm Cruise 200 refrigerator.

Moving on to more instant matters

Here we can see our Tradewind was clearly underwater at one time. Given the delaminated condition of the veneer, I'm thinking of replacing the doors with 1/4" birch plywood, especially since I was just going to sand and paint the doors anyway. Any other thoughts?

In our 66 Safari the doors were in pretty rough shape. Mine were hollow core for weight and veneered on both sides over simple framing. I stripped the veneer off both sides, ran a sander over the framing and re-veneered both sides. I think the edges were painted.

I just made a countertop out of birch veneer plywood 3/4". The birch was very thin, but well applied and pretty hard. It will provide a smooth, flat surfae for the laminate we are planning on using.

I think your plan makes sense.

A 1/4" inch sounds a little thin. You should be able to find Birch in 3/8" but the other veeners are very hard to find. If your drawer/door-facing is 3/8" like mine, I have a source for 3/8" with different wood veeners (oak etc) if you should decide to match the original wood.

I'm not at the trailer today, but as I recall the original doors are only 1/4". But then, my recall is not what it used to be.

After returning to the trailer to take another bite out of the elephant the other day, I measured the thickness of my closet doors. Turns out they are actually 1/2" thick, all except for a one inch perimeter that is only 1/4".



In any event, I decided to just score the veneer with a box knife along a straight edge just above the delaminated part and then remove the bad veneer with a putty knife. It left a very clean edge, which, when sanded, should be barely perceptible under the paint job I intend to apply. Not perfect, I know, but I'm fast approaching the point where I just want to get the thing done (the astute observer would have a good argument that I passed that point some time back). My rationale, perhaps my mantra, is that the perfect is the enemy of the good. But I just want to go camping, not make the pages of Architectural Digest.
