The interior skins are part of what holds the trailer together, so don't take them off, apply whatever over them.

I would take down the inter skins. The plywood will do just fine structurally. A good side benefit is you will be able to examine your wiring and insulation and make the necessary improvements as needed

BTW the walls will be a snap but doing the end caps will be an effort.

You can see how I did it in my thread linked below.

Another example, and the one I followed, is Carlos Ferguson's http://www.airforums.com/forums/f321...ari-15592.html

Cheers,
Steve

Hi, do you have the thread link for the wood paneling? I'm looking to do our 60 Tradewind interior with cedar.

Thanks
Tom
