I liked the new look of the insulation inside even if it is a while before the skins go back, it seemed so long that the trailer did not change even though it seems we work on them all the time! Toastie had some good wiring diagrams on his project if you read through, I can look up the link if you want, I think I have a few of his pages tagged.
I feel like I am on a never ending tread mill. I have to jump back and forth between jobs depending on time weather and $$$. So I dont get the job done on to the next feeling. I have to keep bouncing around, then all of a sudden 10 tasks get wrapped. Im crazy.
I was going to mock up a electrical diagram and measure the inside of the trailer to get a sense of scale. Then I will make some cardboard mock up cabinets. There are a few threads I stalk and Toastie is one for sure. If any one has any advise on wiring/electrical I'm all ears.

I found this thread the other day as a non member. I have been entertained and impressed by your progress. I joined the forum because I thought your electrical diagram and cabinet layout may be much easier if you use an architect's software program. I bought one when we had to rebuild our house. The learning curve is not bad and the program will do almost anything you want. You can lay out your room dimentions (trailer floor) even using a curved wall tool for the corners. Set a ceiling height, place and size windows and doors to match what you have in your trailer. Then add cabinets, countertops, stove, frig, etc. All items can be sized to match what you would use in a trailer. You can add furniture, bath fixtures, lights, switches, and then take a 3D walk through. All to scale. Try this to look at a program simimlar to what I used: Interior Design and Decorating Software - Home Designer Interiors The page has training videos listed under the SUPPORT heading so you can see if it might work for you. Price is $79.

Good luck with the rest, I'll be watching

John

Wow John that is so cool of you, thanks! I started to try my luck at Goggle Sketch up, naaaaaa! Call me simple minded but I didn't get it. I was going to school (back in the olden days) for art and architecture but got side tracked. Oh well re doing an Airstream is like getting a PHD right?
I will check it thanks again. Hows the snow at Kirkwood?

Due to my inexperience in all things trailer and a little misunderstanding with a vendor, I had to remove the A/C unit to add a drip kit. File under rookie mistake and celebrate with several shots of Tequila

I was thinking California since it looks like Nevada to the right of it.
