Thanks

Will be able to hook-up my Apple Ipod to the Jukebox and actual make selections using the buttons on the jukebox. With the speaker just below the Jukebox the music sounds like it is coming from the box.

That is a cool idea, how did you make a connection between the ipod and the buttons on the jukebox?
The cabinets and black stain looks great! It would nice to see up close some day!

Toastie, you realize the original Herh covers fit right over the Fantastic plastic ones? That would give you something else to polish

Worked on threshold today, used a plenty of trempro 635, the threshold has a slight tilt outward. Added a new strike bracket and reworking the door for a better fit.

When laying the floor down, I didn’t lay it all the way to the wall’s, this enabled me to use trempro around the full perimeter of the flooring
and interior walls. It wasn’t the money, it's about water control, I’m convinced that all rv’s leak, Prevost, etc, and also mine. I have gone through 22 tubes of trempro635 since the start of this project, and still not finished.

Very good idea! I am planning the same, everything outside new or old will leak. There are plenty of threads on here with new 2010-11 trailers that leak.

Your trailer is looking great!

Thanks very much Doug, so far the only thing that I'm not happy about is the new axle. I went with a straight 5500lb axle which raised the trailer about 3”, the reason was because of dropped tanks. Plan to go back to a 3500” drop axle, the leaf springs on the trailer is rated 3500#...........

You chose to not lay the flooring wall to wall and then place the fixtures. Others I have seen lay the complete floor, then add the dinet and other furniture. I am at that point. What were you pros and cons of not laying a complete floor?

Great looking trailer byt he way.

That's interesting about the axle, I was going to do a straight axle to gain a little height and the shop talked me out of it saying the old drop axle was built better. They installed new brakes,back plates, bearings and re-arched the springs which gained about an inch and half in height. It cost about the same as a new axle.

Toaste - I don't mean to cause any trouble, just some thoughts.....

I'm not sure how much you will gain by sealing the inside - rot/water happens from outside the trailer - especially from the edges of the plywood that tend to suck up water - I think it is more important to soak the edges of the plywood and about 6 inches in from the edge with epoxy.............

Just some friendly thoughts.

Beautiful job - really enjoying watching this thread........

Ken J.
