Outstanding! Very nice work. Love the rounded corners - softens up the interior. Can't wait to see what fabric y'all are going to use.

That's going to be a tough one! I'm a little torn, and cushions can either make or break an interior. I might stick with solids, just to be safe... Something like this (yeah, I know it's similar to Winnicks 75th)....

I'm thinking a solid dark bottom, bright back, and pattern only on the throw pillow... dunno...

I'm going to look at laminates for the counter top today, too. So many decisions, and so little time to make em!

I love Winnick's 75th (and pretty much all of his other work), my interior will be strongly influenced by his designs as well.

Can't wait to see what it all looks like when it's put together!

Counter top?

I wonder if this is too much funk?

If you're going to use the upholstery below, then maybe it's a little too busy.
I'd combine the funky countertop boomerangs with a coordinating 2-tone upholstery fabric, ( like Winick did) go wild on throw pillows, and then pick a neutral color for the drapes. Keep it tone in tone on teh big surfaces like seats and bed cover and drapes, go wild on small decorative pillows etc.
But then, that's just me.

yeah, that's what I was thinking, too. I wasn't intending this countertop to go with the green and grey seats, just a different idea. I think I'll go with a black speckle on the tops. It'll make the stainless circle sink and cook top pop... plus, the windows are all getting aluminum micro-blinds, and the perffed aluminum panels, etc... more modern than funky.

Clean and simple it is! We're camping this weekend, but as soon as we get back, I'll get the countertops built. I can't wait to see them in place. This is my favorite stage of any project. Every single piece looks better and better!

The aluminum trim is ordered, and should be here by then as well.

Here's another idea for the cushions... with a solid cocoa for the bottoms, that matches the darker color in this pattern...

What kind of stain will you be using on the wood in the trailer? What color fabric for the curtains...? The color combo below is nice but depending on these other colors, could make it pretty dark inside. 'Course, pretty cozy, too... That's some nice fabric!

The interior is done. It's sealed with 5 coats of lacquer, natural finish. I wanted a light interior in this one.

Got the countertops cut, sink and cooktop cutouts done! I also installed the first pieces of perffed aluminum under the galley cabinet. They look really good with the natural wood, I think.

I just ordered 20 different samples for the fabric. Once we settle on that, I can pick the laminate and REALLY make this interior pop! I'm towing it to my upholstery lady this week to get yardage needs and order the foam. I'm going 5" on this one. we put 6" in our other one, and it's way more than enough.

Hopefully this week we'll be getting the aluminum micro-blinds, aluminum trim and the aforementioned samples. Gonna be a busy week! Then we're off to Beufort to see the Trailerworks guys and swap out my tires and rims on the Trade WInd (and camp on the beach, of course!)

You know, that riveted aluminum panel on the fridge really looks great. I really like that little drop-in two burner job. What kind of stove top is that?

I got it at Vintage Trailer Supply. I think it was about $120? I've seen them on eBay though for $90. It comes in a 3 burner set-up, too. I can't wait to get the counter tops done! Hopefully we'll settle on some cushion material next week, and I can order something. That REALLY finishes her off nicely, I think.
