The dinette in the front converts into a Double size bed by removing the table and sliding the ottoman into the area where the table leg was.

The rear bedroom holds a "California Queen" (longer than a normal queen but same width) size bed wall to wall. The shower door doubles as a bedroom door when needed.

The area adjacent from the galley kitchen is a bench seat with a long oval table. The legs can be switched out and the table drops down to convert the bench into a Twin size bed. So it will sleep comfortably 5 adults. Or in our case 2 adults and two kids.

Congratulations!

That was an inspiring read. You certainly did some amazing work. I'm proud FOR you.

A giant thank you for taking the time to share your progress, while most/many of us could only hope to aspire to the level of care you put into this AS, it at least gives me courage to know I'm not an insane person while plugging away at 2am fiddling with this or that... Or maybe that's what it takes. Who cares.

Thank you again,
Ian

Airforum Appraisal

For the life of me I cannot find a appraiser in my area to help me out.

If anyone knows of a appraiser in the Cincinnati area please let me know.

But since I cannot get any answers I would like for the airforum community to give their opinions on a appraisal price, just for fun. Curiosity more than anything. Be honest, my feeling wont be hurt! I need to try and value/grade my work.

This is the most knowledgeable group so your feedback matters!

Thanks in advance!

Measuring in a lot of different places will ensure your pattern is consistent. Clecos are a must with this project and in my mind you can never have too many. I used 4' x 10' aluminum panels for the ceiling which I had to have help wrestling the piece against the ceiling to rivet in place, while also cutting out for all necessary vents and lights.
Did you do anything to the ceiling and endcaps after you installed all the aluminum? What do you do to avoid scratches etc? I'm was going to install all new interior panels but figured it would get pretty scratched up during the install so I was just going to paint everything.

How did you keep from scratching the aluminum? How were you going to finish the aluminum once done?
