Here is the frame after I finished using POR-15 and covering the entire frame...I would suggest ding it in a place with good ventilation, the offices above the car audio shop I was working at stunk of fumes all the next day even after I moved the trailer frame outside.
Another shot after I did the frame, and showing the structures in place to hold the black and gray water tanks. Originally the trailer was equipped with only a black water tank and it was 20 gallons. The holding tanks are now 35 gallon black and 35 gallon gray!
Just an underside shot of the frame with the por-15 and new plywood installed. I will later spray the foam insulkation back on the underside of the frame as it had been in the original build from airstream.
There's a working photo of the new marine grade plywood being installed.
We layed a thin layer of fiberglass mat, and used fiberglass resin around the whole edge. The hopes are that in the future, should we have any leaks that allow water to get in and run down the wall, the entire edge of the trailer is protected from water penetration.
Just a fun shot! The first trip since its renovations began was to the Alumination Rally, Region 1 Rally in August of 2006. We traveled with no interior furnishings and only half of the inner skin back in place! None of my hard insulation fell while we were traveling down the road either which I was impressed by. The next photo shows the insulation and is exposed the way we traveled in it except everything from the bottom of the windows up was exposed on both sides.
