Only the one classic. There were three land yacht motor homes that were mostly gutted and a couple trailers. One was a classic dual axle that looked like it had been in a tornado. The other was a 69 that had been burned out inside. The 370 is mostly gutted. Not much left useful inside I could see. I was in a hurry though . We were there ten minutes past closed. They had to hunt us down on their golf cart. We found it on the rush back in. Wish I had more time to dig through it.

ID:	256379 I got home tonight and waiting on the porch is all of my window seals and fuzzy! Looks like I will be busy for the rest of my natural life! I took one of the swivel chairs to get a price on reupholstering. I may just live with the ugly for a while... They have faded to a sickening pinkish yellow. Really gross... I don't want to put standard chairs in because I want the seat belts just in case... Also I was eyeballing the cockpit chairs today. They are awful. I may have to wait on those till the future. I can still camp with them ugly. And even slightly uncomfortable!

Thanks for all the pictures, I really like the floor you are using. We need to do the same in ours but it will have to wait, we are also redoing a 1975 20ft. Argosy and that has to be finish first. Thanks also for the measurements on the height. It just did fit under our cover. we will also have to fix the windows in front, so will be watching for your updates on that

Almost done! Just have to do the bathroom floor and trim it all out. I am trying to find an alternative to quarter round. I am looking at perhaps just doing a 1" square instead. But then do I stain it to match the oak or try and match the floor? Here is today's progress anyhow!Click image for larger version

Looking good, looks like you know what you are doing .
I will remind you what you said about "looking forward to doing the windows"
Just remember not to break the little screws ...
Did you end up getting the Schlaegle or the fuzzy channel material I recommended?

I honestly have not a clue what I am doing most of the time. I am just really good at faking it! I got the fuzzy channel without the metal. Came from Canada. I tried to get some of the little screws out. They are mostly stuck fast. None broke yet though...Have to soak them... I am very sure I will get sick of the Windows after about two of them.. Haha!

Nice work, did you undercut the pieces sticking out or cut around each one?

Actually a little of both. For the long run in the kitchen I cut the cabinet for the trim to slide underneath. I cut the notches out in the bedroom. I think it looks better notching the cabinets. I suck with the jigsaw...

Finally done with the floor. Not totally sure I like the trim but I can live with it for now. Looks better cleaned. You can see the variations in the floorClick image for larger version
