Maybe unwanted opinion here but I'm not fond of the dueling doors on the floor plan you show, over time it looks like a good place for nicked knuckles, barefoot arch & knee scrapes and general cussedness in a 27"~ inch aisle. I see it makes the best sense for designing and building it, but two people trying to hustle getting ready would likely be playing door wars too. No chance the shower door could face rearward?

I like the sliding door on the rear bath 1972 - I'm pretty sure I will incorporate a pocket door to separate bath & sleeping areas from the rest of the trailer. And a nicer shower area is probably the #1 priority for us as far as livability goes, it may be a dinky door that follows the shell curve but the pan itself will have some room.

@ Peter and Wabbiteer the doors are just preliminary. I will probably do pocket doors but I need to get final dimensions. As I said before very rough draft. The bed will probably be a queen size, and yes alot of counter space. All opinions are always welcome.
@Tinman my trailer is not that wide either so they will be small bathrooms.
@ Marc The wheel wells are between the middle two windows. The toilet is on the curb side so I can have the toilet drop into the deep side of the tank below. The shower needs to be curb side to tie into all the plumbing that is on that side along with the drains and vents. Yes 30' is alot of area inside and out. twice the amount of work as most peoples trailers
Im not sure about martinis but it does sort of look like a keg, maybe a tap in the trunk?

Not sure about the frame on your vintage but on my 1960 I have a main frame rail between where you're showing your toilet and the where the tank would be. And maybe you've already solved that problem (?).

Thanks for posting your project.

The frame rail will not be an issue. I still havent finalized the exact dimensions, this is just a mock up. I am still getting use to the program. Once I get the insulation in the walls I am going to do some precise measurements, changes will be sure to follow.

So just to add my two cents...Maybe you should think about a little counter space next to your stove. Sink could be moved over just a little and it will give you a place to quickly put down a hot pot, stir spoon, glass of wine while cooking. You won't often find a stove without a little counter next to it.
You've come a long way from the beginning of this thread!!!!

Funny you should say that. I was looking at the design this morning thinking that very thing, good call. This design was mostly done to get perspective. Also I needed to get a tenitave placement of lights and outlets.

Thirty footer

Hi-Just started a rehab on a 67 thirty footer, will follow you closely. Looks like you are doing a really nice job-I am on the right coast, on the Gulf in north Florida-We probably have pretty much the same weather, albeit more rain here, but not ever very cold. Lets us spend a lot more time on our projects witout having to stop for winter. Rolland

HI Rolland welcome! I am in the process of sealing leaks and insulation. Very tedious. So are you going shell on/ off? Do you have a plan for the interior? I'll check your profile for status. You are welcome to ask me anything you wish, I will try to point you in the right(ish) direction.
Socal weather is usually pretty good, but it is suppose to rain the next few days, so back to sealing rivets!!

So you are sealing rivets. That is on my list to do and was wondering what process are you planning to use? I'm thinking a tube a Tempro and lots of time.

@JIMandPJ I am using Capitan Tolley's Creeping Crack Cure I believe it is like Acrylic-R . It is pretty easy to use.
@mrgreen It is important to seal any leak you find. There are alot of people that seal inside and out. I have read pros and cons on both. If I find a rivet that is loose I just drill it and reinstall new rivet and sealant. But over time all rivets have the potential to leak.
Its suppose to rain for two days this week so we shall see how good this stuff works..

thanks for the answer, I've read about that captain tolleys and it seems good stuff, i've sealed my rivets from the inside with a flexible roofing sealant and i want to do the seams with the captain tolleys, also do you think i should remove all of the window frames and re-seal them (there's only four more to go!) or do you think digging out the old sealant and re-sealing in place would be enough?,
thanks.

I would keep the old frames in place unless it is leaking from everyplace on that window. A lot of times changeing the gaskets, resealing (which should be done every 5 yrs or so) the window seams and rivets should be enough.
