Thanks everybody!, The floor took the better part of a 4x8 sheet of stainless. The drain/trap in the shower floor is built into the top of the grey tank. There are five different pieces that all overlap at least a 2" and caulked between. Can't say I liked working with stainless, it doesn't cooperate as easy as aluminum or galvanized.

Yes It is Steve, we haven't seen anyone use that yet, we like the contrast against the stainless steel. We didn't want to do aluminum or stainless on the walls and the white fiberglass was way to bright. We are looking for more of a rustic cabin type of finished look.

It looks very rustic, and hardly anyone goes that route nowadays. (I like it)

I know galvanized resists rust longer than untreated steel, but did you add an additional layer of protective coating or anything?

Steve

Thanks Steve, We thought of sealing it but it will be decades before it rusted enough to be a problem.

Running water!

The water flows and better yet stays where it is supposed to!

Also finished the front wall of the bathroom, there was an extra door left over from the original cabinets that I installed on the second half of the bath wall. The extra door will be for pictures and postcards and other memories of our trips.

Installed the door for the top of the frig cabinet, this will hold the papers for the trailer road maps and ???

I ordered the wrong gasket for toilet so waiting for that to come in again. The ups delivery guy has no problem finding our house anymore!

Curtains, bed and cushions

Nellie is getting more comfortable each day, we installed the bed with sheets and pillows. The new cushions came in from our upholstery guy and Jan is about half way through making curtains.

Our upholstery guy also made new cushions for Jan's chair and the two fold-o-matic chairs.

We made the curtain rods out of deer antlers and 3/8" aluminum tubing.

All I want to do is sit in the camper now!

Recently I learned that the screens on the windows cannot be installed in the groves without removing the windows so now I am in the process of making framed screens that can be inserted and screwed in place. I think this will give a more finished look anyway.

On my To Do list as well, Doug. Somewhere in toastie's thread he has a few pics of doing it with frames.

Nellie is looking great. Just get ready to budget extra time when you're camping to give tours and answer questions. You'll be drawing a crowd.

cheers,
steve

Thanks Steve, We will be camping in a week, probably won't have everything done. I made one screen today by bending a aluminum frame over the edge of the screen, it worked pretty well. I will post a picture tomorrow.
