I need more details on that venting....

The door within the door is flat screen. It has enough flex for the slight curve. It is held in with an bent "L" to and bottom.

Thanks Frank, I'll make an L or two and see how it goes.

The vents are really nice, I got these from iBoats.com; Flush-Mount Fuel Vent Straight - Attwood. They also have a resin product with stainless cover which includes baffles to allow air out but not water back in.

Ramping up

Today the GF primed most of the window trim and I installed the water heater output vent, completed the aluminum dinette framing and worked on countertops.

The water heater vent was one of the things that has been giving me analysis paralysis for months. In the end I had a plate welded to some T6 square tube then sandwiched some mesh between two plates and sealed it all up. I then installed this against the inside of the outside skin all with high temp RTV, on the outside I've added an old school aluminum scoop to ensure there's no way much of anything is going to get in the trailer. I still need to connect it to the heater with some hose. The whole caboodle sits on a tray that is tied into the fresh intake I've installed in the floor. I'll add a shroud to direct the cool air into the heater intake louvres then it should be done; at last.

I'm using 1/2" Baltic Birch (with some regular 1/2" Birch) for the dinette seat decks, countertops and vanity deck. For the countertops I'm building it up to 1 1/2" at the gables and edges; with two runs of 10' each they're looking huge. The dinette is a single layer and seem plenty sturdy.

It sure doesn't look like a huge amount of progress for a trailer that needs to be usable in just over 2 months!

It's got to be quite light , an 8' length runs about 3.2 lbs. I'd have to check my cut list but I'm certain I could have picked up all the tube for the framing (20' feet of cabinets, dinette and bathroom vanity) and walked to the check out no problem. I suppose I could have gone with a lightweight hardwood but I felt that the aluminum was more stable and it allows me a greater variety of anchoring techniques for the drawers etc.

I worked on the second galley counter today, partially installed the through floor battery intake vents and drilled the plumbing to tank holes. I'm looking forward to getting a couple of coats of Danish Oil on the dinette plywood and getting it secured in place; at least I'll have something to sit on :-)

a Bed, almost

Been working on bits and bobs this week. Completed the through floor battery venting, installed another stainless marine vent for the fresh tank and did a test fit of the grey and fresh tanks. Naturally the fabricator incorrectly located one fitting but we're working on that....

The 5' x 12' laminate for the kitchen counters and bathroom vanity is sitting getting ready to be installed and we finished the main cabin paint work. Installed the dinette/ bed platform and a few other little things like Fan trim etc.

Big jump ahead

Today feels very productive. I laminated the bathroom vanity and both kitchen countertops. I chose a patterned laminate for the kitchen and used a remnant that's a bit simpler for the bathroom vanity.

We're sealing the edge of the counter in kitchen with an oil based satin product but I used aluminum trim in the bathroom as it'll be getting wet a lot more.

I also fitted the vanity vessel and faucets and I still think it's going to work well for the shower tub, even the stainless riser that I had made at work looks factory. In the kitchen I set the sink in place and mounted the faucet but I still need a soap dispenser and blanking plate or maybe I'll go for dish soap and hand soap.

The cooktop is just dropped in it's cut out right now but I love how sleek it looks.

I've got to get going, I'm out of the country for a couple of weeks soon and we leave for Cali' mid August.

Thanks Toastie, it's from panther-rvproducts.com. Super nice to deal with. It's a US model SMEV and had the correct connections (I'm told but haven't tried hooking her up yet). They don't get all the SMEV stuff but that's apparently a manufacturer/ distributor restriction.

That laminate is similar in color/pattern to what was OEM on our '83 Silver Streak; we liked it well enough to source cork flooring to complement it.

Have passed this thread over to my wife to read several times over it's course.

Got the sink and cooktop sealed in place and got started on the plumbing today. GF painted the door/ door within a door and little stuff that takes ages. GF and her mom picked up fabric for the dinette for a steal of a deal, about $50 (regular $250) so I need to get the 6" 2lb foam for the cushions/ bed ASAP.

It rained cats and dogs at midday and it was crazily loud in trailer, but I loved it :-)

I also replaced most of the window catches (sanded blasted 4 of the original ones) and started on fitting the new window cranks. The new cranks seem jerky and cheap compared to the originals but I've applied some lubricant to see if thats works better.

You can probably see the finish line in front of you. Thanks for sharing the documentation.

Do you think the tank vents you've installed also work for fresh water tank vent.
