Show us your wood!

I must admit to be a fan of the wood cabinets and trim panels in the older trailers...Let's see what your wood looks like..

One of the major attractions of our 1992 Sovereign was the real oak cabinets that have nicely "mellowed" over the years. They are in great condition and are one of the few things that we're not changing! She's up at our renovation guys shop right now getting a ton of work done but here's a couple of pics that show the cabinets/wood.

Jeez, they're all gorgeous! Stunning! Maybe someday one of our rescue-restos would be worthy to post some photos here!

What kind of oil did your PO use? I'll rush right out and get a gallon...(Hmmm--maybe two gallons). Seriously, what kind?

Vivian - We use Watco Oil in Red Mahogany (got it at True Value Hardware). Light sanding before first coat. Allow to dry for a few hours and then buff. Applied 3 coats.

Show us your wood!

The rich Golden Oak interior was one of the things that I remembered from my first expereince with my first experience with my 1964 Overlander Land Lacht International as a 5-year-old child in 1964. The original owners were fastidious with its maintenance through their 16 years of ownership, and fortunately the second owners didn't paint the woodwork. Fowler RV Interiors restored the interior to its original glory as can be seen in the photo below:



This coach has been my dream coach since 1995.
