Nice choice on the floor. Gives it a very "airy" feeling.

What do you plan on using the trailer for?

we are using the trailer as an extra bedroom when we visit my kids. we have parked it in their back yard and i have hooked up all utilities including sewer. they have a small house so we have our privacy and can drop in anytime. we live about 3 hrs away.
the trailer has a fully functional bath with black tank and new toilet, shower, new electric water heater, new low profile airconditioner with heat strip, and all electrics work. i took out all the gas and did put in a new axle and it tows great. we have cable in there and can sit and read, watch tv and sleep there. we have used it for a couple of weekends and it is great. i am very pleased with the openess after taking out the kitchen and making the low cabinet for the tv on the door side.

cabinets

the cabinets under the goucho are original, as are those above the goucho. obviously all painted except for the vinyl that was on the upper cabinets.
on the door side we made a low cabinet to cover the wheel well that has a small tv on it. there is a computer grommet behind the tv where the power and cable comes in from the closet. the cabinet was made from the hardware from the goucho/seating that was in the front of the trailer. i used all the hinges and catches to make it look just like the other side.
the top is the same maple floor from ikea.

Everything looks great.
I love your light fixture. Is that 110 or 12v? Where did you get it?
