Thanks! Great info. I laid some VCT in our FC's rear bathroom and the stuff I got to set it was terrible--let it tack up, etc. but came in the next day to find the tiles had drifted apart (and this was summer, low humidity).

If the tiles were pulling apart it's possible that you slid the tiles together slightly once they were in the glue. I've found in my very limited experience with these tiles that if you don't line them up exactly the glue will pull it back to the initial placement to a point.

Here's what I used.

https://www.lowes.com/pd/HENRY-Gallo...hesive/3775775


Guess what I learned today?

The Cabot stain I bought earlier this year and used on a Shasta trailer I was working on is no longer carried by Lowes, and no longer carried by anyone in our region. I found it online and ordered 3 quarts but it set me back twice what I should have paid and lost me a week of work time. Going to focus on repairing and sanding doors and drawer fronts and prepping for some staining in 3-5 business days..

Wow this trailer has tons and I mean tons of storage

16 drawers & 27 cabinet doors to be exact.

Half day today and I finished prep on the last cabinet frame except the two beds which just won't fit in my already overflowing shop.

I also repair veneer on 4 drawers and 2 doors. Final sanding tomorrow on what's done (waiting on some small filler areas to dry).

The bad news is that I have 5 drawers and 18 more doors to do plus the bed frames.

Don't mind my messy shop

I really like the French door style latches on the two wardrobes. Click image for larger version

much better to install those armstrong tiles after they have been heated in the oven for a minute. they set better and adhere to the flooring glue for a more tight fit.
we have an apartment building with 10 studio apts and i have done those tiles in every one. they last forever.

A few more cabinet frames in. Temps here have really slowed me down with highs in the low teens and lows below zero. Managed to get the garage warm enough today for finishing two wardrobe frames, the pantry, kitchen, and 4 drawers. No welting on yet and nothing screwed in as the trailer heater was off. Bed frames are next in for repair and the next decent day the refrigerator cabinet and overhead kitchen cabinet get finished then the doors and drawers last. Tough to get these in to place. I'm glad I waited on final painting until after all these full height cabinets are in place. As soon as we warm up I can final paint the inside skins and paint inside all the cabinets, then welt and screw these in place and get the lights and electric all powered up.

There is a ton of storage in your trailer. Much more than in my 66 Trade Wind twin. Looks very nice. You are making good progress in spite of the lousy cold weather.

Thanks! I'm not impressed with the quality of oak Airstream used, but it is what it is and still is looking good.

Weather caused schools to close today so I redid the kitchen counter with new Formica, cleaned the sink and set it in place.

Also finished the stain and clear on the refrigerator cabinet and overhead kitchen cabinet so they can go out after work tomorrow.

Here's all the storage on the curb side. It really is insane. Front cabinet has the broom closet, refrigerator, furnace and storage above.

my 65 24' tradewind had mahogany cabinets and walls - 64-65 must have been a shift from mahogany to oak because my 1966 globetrotter has the oak cabinets which aren't nearly as nice.

i'm thinking of redoing all the cabinets in my trailer BUT after seeing the darker color stain you have used it makes the oak look so much better. maybe i'll strip and re-stain mine?

*let me know if you will be in seattle this week - i still have the furnace you inquired about

all the best!

I'm amazed at you guys who are able to use some/all of the interior wood. Everything I have messed with is completely falling apart and only partially useable as a pattern.

Great looking work!

Thanks. Yes the oak they used in 62 must have Been on the clearance rack. I've seen it in browns and it didn't take stain well. This is actually a mahogany stain. Lots of conditioner. They were so cheap though that things like the styles between doors were pine not oak since they only show a little.

As the weather gets better definitely want to get over there for it. Have a retired friend that has a doctors appointment over there I may see if he can swing through for me. I'll give you a call. Thanks again!

Oh I did consider a white or gray wash stain but ended up going this direction. Hopefully I don't regret it when I get to doors

Thanks! Reusing is tough. In reality I could have rebuilt. Most doors and drawers I reskin and trim route new faces. Some sides i reglue and repair the veneer, some I replace. Has a little character but no more than a refinished antique in the house.
