Try using some flexible caulk at the seam between the counter and backsplash. If you use something that hardens it definitely will crack over time.

Here are some pics of the interior painting. Its made a huge difference. Now its back to putting it all together. I have been painting lots of trim pieces (window frames, screw heads, vent covers, knobs etc). I'm ready to get it all back together. I think I will have the countertop in this weekend. Still not sure how I want to deal with backsplash. Lots of good suggestions here.

Progress is inching along. I got the couch back with some new upholstery. I'm happy with it. Counter top is going in tomorrow. I will post some pics. One thing I am having trouble with is the sticky from the PO peel & stick tiles. I removed these tiles and the floor is very tacky. I tried sanding with not much luck. Then I sprayed adhesive remover on the surface and was able to scrape away quite a bit of residue. I'm concerned that the little bit of tacky left will cause problems with the floating floor that will go in shortly..Any ideas to better remove this residue?

bweldon;

Your Soverign bath layout looks very much like my 77 Argosy 26T. I am trying to pull the tub and sink and am having great difficulty. How much did you have to pull and what was the sequence if you remember? I have a soft spot on the floor between the toilet and sink and have some bad belly panels that need replacement as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Barry,
I am just on my way to get the trailer inspected, it's a 78 Argosy Minuet 6 meter and it sat in a Pecan orchard for 6 years. It needs some TLC and I was wondering what/how you painted your interior? Did you strip the old paint off? Did you clean/scuff/prime?

Personally, BTW, I like the idea of a solid backsplash. Brushed aluminum or maybe even a faux-brick pattern in vinyl? My wife put some kitchen wall paper up in the house we are renting ("FO" stone in light gray) and it gave a lot of depth to a small space, so you may want to check out some patterns, etc. Do you have photoshop? It is great for doing this kind of stuff. I have a brother who is a sheetmetal whizz, so I will ask him to make us some brushed stainless steel back splashes.

Thanks! Please keep posting, I'd like to see what you end up doing.

Bobby,

I didn't have to pull my bath out so I can't help you there. I'm sure its a chore but lots of good info here.

MIKO92,

The process I used for painting was a combination of several recommendations from the forum. What I did was:
Clean the sticky off the Vinyl with Purple Power (use whatever cleaner you like, lots of suggestions here). I then wiped down with water to remove any residual cleaners. I then sanded using a vibrating sander with 180 grit. Fill any rivet holes with rivets, wood putty in any holes in wood panels. I then wiped down with laquer thinner to make sure it was real clean. I applied one coat of primer and two topcoats. The paint & primer was from Sherwin Williams. I think most believe that the paint stores have a better knowledge of what their products can & cant do (versus the big box stores). I don't remember the name of the primer but it was an oil based primer and it was not out on the shelf. They had to bring it out of the back. I asked then for something that was really grippy to adhere to the vinyl coated aluminum. I went with the Duration line of paint for my topcoat. The whole process was very labor intensive but has made the biggest difference out of everything that I have done. One tip I got from the paint pros that I think helps a lot (for those of us who are not well versed at painting) is to let the roller do the work for you. Instead of pressing the roller hard against the surface, just make sure you have it loaded with a good amount of paint and use gentle pressure and let the roller do the work for you. Good luck with your painting.

Barry
