Hi Tstraters,

When we removed the old subfloor, we traced it onto a new sheet of plywood, cut it out and then made sure the curve was the same. It was a little tricky since most of the rounded corners were rotten through, so we had to be very gentle with the old floor. For the new u-channel, we used .030 (or .032, I don't remember off hand) sheet aluminum and had it bent into that shape by a local fab shop.

In case anybody is interested in making their own segmented panel end caps out of sheet metal, I put together a post on my blog. Enjoy!

It's really looking great! Did you do something to cover the interior alumanium (like a film or something over the metal) or is it just raw mill finish? I really like the LED downlights on the bases too!

Thanks all!
3Ms75Argosy - it is just the raw aluminum will a mill finish. It is actually the back side of a painted aluminum.

I finally solved the problem of an affordable porthole in the bathroom door!

It's the new Polish model.
It's just there to mark the cutout.

So we sold our house (!!!!) and if all goes well we will close later this month! So so much to do before we hit the road! The Airstream is not too far from being done...it is all of the other things that need to fall into place. Right now we are shopping for a tow vehicle, which is turning out to be very frustrating and scary.
