I have seen that driftwood pine in several offices. It's a very nice looking floor.

If you are using water based Poly, don't use steel wool. Any particles left behind will rust. It's hard to clean them all off.
Went with oil minwax polyshades, 2 coats, the steel that I used is liberon oil free steel wool http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=1436

Finally found some time to read through this thread. Wow! I learned a lot! Thanks for documenting the process and taking good shots of the work. Helps so much.
I have a question relating to post #481 about your roof vent. I have the shaft part but am missing the top vent piece. Where did you track yours down?

Toastie... curious what thickness and what material you used for the dinette... 1/2"? Where'd you end up finding the edging? Outwater?

Looks fantastic!

Worked on cutting foam today. We bought from http://www.foamforyou.com/ . We went with 82" x 76" x 5" and made our own cuts. We went with there premium HD foam http://www.foamforyou.com/Foam_Specs.htm#Open . Very happy with the selection.

Wow is right!

Great job and appreciate that you share your methods and your material sources with the rest of us. It is always good to see what others have done and learn from them. Sure beats trying to figure it all out ourselves. Thanks.
Sandy

I think your trailer is awesome! I have a '75 TW that I'm doing a shell off. I'd like to copy your floor plan. Do you mind?

I'll have the water heater where you've put your air conditioner. I'm ok with having the door back there as long as it's in the middle.

I'm wondering about your fridge. Is it duel fuel? I notice you don't have a big flew. I don't see a cooktop in there either. Do you plan to put one in?

I don't have those awesome aluminum bulk head cabinets, darn it. I'll have to come up with something that gives as much punch.

Do you think you'll miss having hanging storage?

I missed where your furnace is?

Toastie,
Where did you find this item for $17.00? The best I've found it for is about $40.00.
Thanks, Spike
