Just glue the covers on from the inside. If you had to, you could build an aluminum box for the inside and seal it really well where there were seams.

Reflective insulation going in

I am putting in 2 layers of reflective bubble insulation. I have one section complete, with 2 layers installed. It is the silver section. All the white sections that you see are the sections that only have one layer installed.

It has taken a considerable amount of time to do this. I might be able to complete both layers in a week or so. I am leaving the ceiling open, so I have access for wiring.

Thank goodness the new AC is working well!

Winter 2015 update

Once the insulation was complete, I installed mostly new aluminum inner skins, except in places where the walls would be hidden by cabinets. Also installed end caps. I used plastic paint for the front end cap. I haven't decided how to do the rear yet. Installed the old lighting fixtures with new LED bulbs, and new plastic lenses.

I am still trying to find the right vinyl sheet flooring, but that is the direction I am going on the floors.

Wiring is mostly done. After installing the floor, I hope to start on the furnace, duct-work, Pex, and drain lines.

Oh, and those pesky vista views are gone.

Closing out this thread

I had a blast building this trailer. I used it a few times, but decided to build another. One that better meets my retirement needs.

I told my wife that an artist doesn't create a masterpiece with his first canvas.

Below are some parting shots, of the now sold trailer.

Thanks Kay, You and Chris were my inspiration!


You need to talk to Mrs. Bauxter, she didn't help a lick. The next trailer, she will be in charge of polishing
