You can probably save some money and buy a lot of your materials locally. The major players are producing materials with low VOCs, Formaldehyde, etc. Another problem with MDF and other particle board materials is their propensity for absorbing moisture, causing them to swell and distort.

You know, after reading some project logs on the board,I'm very much re thinking this whole thing. I'm finding that it will be very time consuming and expensive. I wasn’t expecting it to take a week to do but I also don't want it to take five years. And I certainly don’t want it costing more than a brand new trailer. I don’t learn very well by reading. I'm a hands on learner, always have been. So reading the full monty kind of posts about leaking this, rivet that, and having 0 clue about any of it, is useless to me. Now some may be thinking that I’m getting discouraged already, but I’m trying to be realistic. I have a habit of getting excited about things, then suddenly losing interest. Not a good thing if I've dropped a few thousand on a trailer and have no drive to finish the task I’ve started. So, I may call it quits and just buy a fairly new one and be happy with it.

Very wise. These projects are labors of love and as you are seeing do require LOTS of time and money. I suspect we're all slightly mad to begin with and then too for continuing... No harm done in your case! That's one of the benefits of the forum. Test the waters before jumping in. Check out the classified section. You might also find this thread interesting: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f417...nds-37064.html as an example of what the market is like. Good luck and keep posting your researches and questions!
