I come bearing gifts!

Hello forums! I've been reading through posts anonymously for a year or so, staring out the window at my AS itching to start a renovation, but not getting very far. My recent attempt at selling her finally convinced us that she's worth more to us than anyone else and we might as well make her ours. So here I am digging for advice while we do a full shell on renovation. I stress renovation as we're not trying to make it original, although we'll keep the original floor plan minus the bathroom sink (who needs two sinks in 14' of trailer anyway?), we plan to go with all new appliances and hopefully custom cabinetry. At any rate we've got the interior all torn down to the frame and I'm in rewire hell right now trying to figure out how to put her all back together with the new intelli-power and fuse panel. My biggest fear is not getting enough new wiring in for the new appliances. Well that's my story, thank you for all the advice I've already garnered from members and all that I will likely get in the future.

Oh yeah, since I crashed your party here I thought I should bring a case of beer with me, everyone enjoy an ice cold PBR with me.

Cold PBRs? 'Tis the season for hot toddies, me darlins'!

Good luck with your reno, I admire people like you. DH and I are close to purchasing either a 2002 or a 2005. No one handy in our family, so we gotta go newer.

The vintage units rock in terms of 'cool factor'. Have fun!

Howdy, a bunch of us lurked a long while before coming into the light, reflected light from aluminitus.

I was once told PBRs came with an actual blue silk ribbon tied around the neck of each bottle up until WWII when the silk was needed for parachutes. Urban legend or cute smash the Axis, conserve our resources story?

Either way, cold it is

Enjoy the Bambi
