The twins are a good idea. Mine has a queen with very little room on the sides and foot of the bed. Twins are not an option as the engine is under the bed. I'm going to move the bed aft and give up the storage under the foot of the bed.

Please post some pics when you do! If my diesel was back aft I would happily keep the queen.... It has to be so much easier to work on!! I am sure the noise difference is great as well. I am still in my adolescent phase where the thrumming of the diesel make me grin But will be putting additional sound proofing in for the wife. Which by the way when she complains that you can't hear her over the noise of the engine, the wrong comeback is "I love that engine".....

re posting to keep this thread up to date.

Well I have finally had time the last few weeks to work on the moho on a limited basis. We were too busy the first part of the summer going camping then the 25th anniversary in July... So finally back to the grind stone.
Here is a shot of what I have done so far. The bedroom is completely empty and the mouse fur stripped off the walls and overhead. We are waiting for some special order wall paper (textured vinyl that looks like brown leather). Don't say a word... sometimes you just have to say "yes dear"!

I plan on coating the floor with WEST epoxy to seal it. The only problem is I am in an infinite loop trying to decide between 30" mattress and 32"....

The blue chalk lines are laid out at 32" which is perfect match to the hallway and would allow 1" either side for sheets, blankets, etc... and a 22" isle. How ever, If I tweaked it out 2" on each side I would get a 32" mattress and still have a 18" mattress. However with the curve of the back end I would have a gap of 13" at the head of the bed.... Unless I angled the heads of the bed together like they do on boats. that would make the head narrower but the berths wider. Allowing me to slide the mattress forward so I have the 13" of space at the foot of the bed, and still plenty of room to change, etc.

Anyone have any thoughts? I kinda like the boat idea....

West Epoxy

Well as you cab see by the previous post, I have some staining (from water fill pipe) and a tad of de-lamination of the OSB flooring. It is only about th top 1/16" in the dark colors are and a spot about the size of a coffee cup towards the top that is messed up to about an 1/8" to 1/4".

Spent allot of time thinking about replacing the whole section, but I came to the conclusions that by patching in a new pices of plywood I would damage the structure far more than if I left it alone.

So I got some WEST epoxy and coated the whole area with 2 coats. The OSB sucked in all of the first coat! After the second coat it was hard as a rock!. I than put some high deisty filler powder in the 3rd batch to level the whole thing. I plan on going back tomorrow night and epoxy bond a patch of 1/8" Luan that I cut to size over the treated area. Over kill I know, but it is going to be under the new twin bed and may have water on it again, so why not. Also it gave me a chance to play around with the west epoxy syste. That stuff it very $$$$ but it is amazing and the best epoxy system I have ever used!

Later in the week I am going to go to Lowe's and get some "Restore" deck paint. to pain the rest of the OSB to fill the OSB and lock it down. Not to mention water proof it. I was contemplating using WEST epoxy, but that would cost about $00 to do the whole thing!

Will post some pics later when I get eh patch in place.

Starting to get into the grove now that our trailer is sold.... We had to sell it cause all we did is go camping and not work on the MoHo!! Not to mention the money can be out right back into the MoHo

Conventional vinyl wallpaper does not work on interior walls and ceilings.Besides the adhesion problem, it will shrink during the heat of 1 summer.

Hmmmm hadn't thought about the shrinkage issue. It requires a special glue instead of just the standard wallpaper paste/glue. I am hoping that the product we ordered will work... If not, It's not the first time (nor the last) that I have had to redo something....

Dave,
I installed "leather" vinyl once on the front dome (above the driver/passenger seat) using contact cement. It looked incredible, since I went around all the curves and corners... until summer came. 120-130 degrees just destroyed the material (shrinkage) and even the contact cement started to melt. I had to strip it all off and ended up painting a cool metallic finish on the dome.
On wall sections I ended up wrapping the material around the back side of panels covered with thin foam and then used upholstery tacks to hide the fastening screws. These panels have lasted 12 years and counting.

Pete, Thanks for the info!!! Well since we already ordered the material for the bedroom I think we will see what we can do..... Plus DW usually needs to see the results of a mistake before she will change her mind that it is a mistake.

We are planning to leave the rest as is so the mistake will be limited.

Please post a pic if your end cap! We have been trying to think what we want/ if we want to do anything to spruce it up.

Yeah, That's what I wanted to do! But the wife vetoed that one....

And don't think that a day goes by when I don't say to myself "Geez Dave, Ya buy a nice RV, gut it and then sell your trailer? What are you some kinda moron! "

I am slowly crawling out of my pit of despair. Brad kahler had the best suggestion. Make a list of everything you need to do with it broken down into the smallest pieces possible. and check off each item as you do it, it will show you you are making progress.

Felicia wonders why I have unlock rv and lock rv on every list. My response is cause some days, that's all I do....

This weekend we are going to bring it around tot he campground here on base, plug it in and run the A/C so I can work in comfort!

The floor patch has cured. And I was over in the rain and there is no sign of leaks anywhere. So I did the window gaskets right. So we do a quick sweep and cleaning and coat the floors with 2 coats of restore deck paint that should work great for water proofing/sealing the OSB floors. If someone has a better idea, speak up! I was thinking about using the WEST system, but it would cost at least $400 to do the whole MoHo...

Knowing that I'm at least getting something done no matter how trivial the task is the only thing that keeps me sane

That's what you get for buying something that is so long My little 20 footer would only take a fraction of that

Look at RAKA epoxy. I've used it for several Airstream floors. 3 gallons cost about$200 delivered, and would probably get you 3-4 coats. I've been very happy.

Dave, glad to see you're moving right along.
I recently built a new dining table from cherry wood that I had & was wondering if you or Brad or anyone would have a need for the original table.

The price is right---I just need to keep it moving. Pete
