Some of the wood we had a friend order and some we got at Home Depot.

If I were you I would paint the walls and cabinets you have with 2 or 3 of the BM colors. Your rig is in great condition (I took a look) and I think you could do some awesome things with a good cleaning with TSP and some Aura Paint. The thing I like about this paint is that no matter what color you pick all the other Aura colors go with it...it's amazing really. Ask them to demonstrate this for you..

You can buy these little bottles of paint and try them out in the AS at different areas to see if you like it. Color Samples

My advice is to mask, protect anything and everything you do NOT want paint on. It takes a little longer to mask things, however you can apply
the primer and finish paint much faster and with no brush or roller marks.
If your trailer is gutted it's easy to spray. Apply light tac coats so the paint does not run or drip.

Thanks for the compliment! We love our rig, but the "period correct" look is getting old...time for something new.

I was toying with the idea of painting the walls, but I didn't know if the paint would stick to the "veneer".

I do like the color combos that BM has on their site. I'll have to head over to Ace Hardware this afternoon, or when I get time, and take a look at the Aura, as well as their new line Natura.

Thanks again.

If you clean the walls and cabinets with TSP (I mixed it like triple strength) and let it dry real good then primer with BM bonding primer it should be great.
Keep in touch

In order for a good paint to adhere to the walls, you must first clean them so that they are clean and not sticky.

Next, if you want the paint to stay real long term, you must "scuff" the walls down with about 120 to 150 grit sandpaper. I medium scuffing will work.

The scuffing creates a surface for the paint to bond to, which is a must.

Thanks for the tips, Andy. Now it's just a matter of picking the colors we like.

BTW, for anyone interested, on a 1971 the front cap is plastic and the rear cap is fiberglass, if that hasn't already been covered. I can't vouch for the other years, but I assume that they are the same for the jet-liner interior years.

Curtain Material

We finally decided on Curtian material. What do you think?

Now you did it.

You will have to add some palm trees, plumeria's, and orchids.

After that, you can sit back and relax with some Mai Tai's, and if you want to kick it up a couple of notches, some soft Hawaiian music in the background.

Hawaii, how dare you spoil us so much???

PS: Don't stop.

Andy
