The whole Diesel Powered Trailer thread traces the development of this idea, from my original question posed on the Forum through to realization.

No.

Because I am using the LG fridge in the house it was easier to glue together this exact-size Styrofoam mock-up than to clear out and reload the fridge and wait for my neighbor to help me carry the LG in and out of the trailer.

Stainless

Was it hard to remove the counter top on your unit? I would like to keep my cabinet, but put a new counter on it, and add the stainless on the back like you did. I have seen this on many newer airstreams. I also like your smaller sink.

back splash is aluminum

WestMichCamp:

Its been almost 2 years since I tore the trailer apart so I dont remember exactly how easy the counter would be to take off. Very easy, I suspect.

The back splash isnt stainless. Its aluminum. How it was done is shown in the thread, back a ways.

I bought my SPRINTER tow vehicle at K&M in Grand Rapids.

Welcome to the forum.

The wiring harness - serving the thermostat and fan coil units, the dimmer for the rear cabin pot lamps and the bed reading light - will be covered over with a panel of .040 aluminum.

Painted, the panel will become the headboard for the mid ship lounge-sleeper.

I have all the parts collected now and will soon clad the wall and design, build and mount the panel.

On the panel:

Micro Pulse System Monitor
Water pump switch
Rocker switches for all three fan-coil heating units
Rocker switches for
Yard light
Door light
Back light for fuel gauge
Diesel fuel gauge
AC voltmeter
DC voltmeter
OnOff toggle for Webasto heater.

Ive finished the headboard wall at the mid ship lounge. Ching Mei came down from Toronto last weekend and helped me paint everything inside. That was the third and final coat.

We are installing the furniture DavidsonOverlander made for the front lounge now. Photos later.

Today Phil and I lined the entire underbelly space with two alternating layers of 2 closed cell insulation rated at R10. Two layers or 4 makes R20 I suppose.

We used made in Canada Owens Corning Celfortec and glued it in place with PL 300 foam adhesive.

I have several giant rolls of reflective insulation that I got for next to nothing so well add a layer of that as we attach the new belly skins.

This week we received all the window and door gasket, door rubber, window arm seal and rubrail inserts from Oasis in Tucson, Arizona so thats another thing well be doing soon.

The window frames are all painted and ready for the new fuzzy stuff but re-reading posts here I think I may have ordered only half of what it will take.

I didnt realize that you need a strip down EACH SIDE of the arm.

That's perhaps the downside of ordering by phone.
