Did you also use it on the Formica (? Faux wood grain)? Do you think it would work?

We did not use it on any Formica at all. I would contact Krylon and ask. They have excellent customer service. We fabricated new counters for the kitchen and bath.

All your work looks great! Love that floor! You have the exact same bathroom we do. I love seeing different renditions of the same plan.

Holy cow, you are just like us with always needing a project! Love your ambition! I wish we lived closer, I would love to hang out and check in on your progress. I just had a metal shop duplicate the front propane tank cover since ours was damaged by a blow out from the previous owner. I am going to take the wheels off so I can paint the wheel wells, then I think we are finished with our 32'.

Love your bathroom and tank cover, Danjoe! Post some more pics! We have a lot more to do on ours-- next is installation of the stove, dishwasher, microwave, and vacuum. Here are some shots of Rob sealing the outside.

Thanks for the information! I love what you've done. What an awesome trailer.

Love your attention to detail! The couple we bought our trailer from gave us the same caulking tool you are using. We forgot to ask them if they did the caulking already, or were preparing to. I cannot remember the name of the sealant to use. All of our windows look in good shape, but I will go over them just in case.

I enjoy watching your renovation of your Excella. We have a similar trailer. The bathrooms are very similar.

Have you had to address failed oval stack window seals in your project? All 4 of my dual pain stack windows have failed. I could put gold fish in them! I'm told I have to replace them (54 rivets per window, $250 cost per window after I dig out all the heavy calking around the frame.)

Danjoe91, I like to use Acryl-r with the pump for all the small seams etc. it's great because it wicks into the area you are sealing. On the other areas I use adseal in white or gray like the window eyebrows and the rubrail. I still use tempro for installing things like fans, outside showers or anything I'm mounting down. I've tried a lot of stuff and I like these products the best so far.

Outdoor shower

I added the same outdoor shower in almost the same place. The previous owner moved the water heater to under the dinette, so I put the shower in the spot where the water heater used to be. plumbing was already there!

what kind of pump? A hand caulking gun?

Thank you! I appreciate the education you had to go through to figure all that out!

Where did you get the grey outdoor shower, I've seen white and black but not grey.

I'd love to add one to my Safari while I've got the plumbing apart!

Alan, it is a pump applicator and you buy it once and use it with refill cans of acryl-r. The adseal I buy in caulk tubes to fit a standard caulk gun. I like the nice tip each tube comes with. I get them both from Airstreams website.
Aldeanfan, we got the shower from Camping World and I painted it with my favorite Krylon Fusion paint. The color was nickel shimmer. We wanted the stainless shower from Airstream but it was about 250.00 and the plastic one was 35.00 on sale so maybe later on that.
