Hi Mary, Annie was partly right. We did put a shower surround in the corner of the shower so we would have shelves for soap etc. but the rest of the bath we used dry eraser board, it is thin and it will still slide in the partition holder that screws to the wall (with the little teeth) I just put it on after I peeled the vinyl off, with contact cement.

Sorry I didn't get this on till now.

Up until yesterday I was very happy with the 3+ year old "countertop" paint we had our bathroom / shower done over with. Yesterday I went to paint the shower pan with POR 15 after having fixed a few cracks it in so I put blue painters tape on the painted wall at the edge of the shower pan. When I removed the painters type it took up *all* of the countertop paint that was underneath it. Bathroom walls now look like crap, we'll be looking for a better solution......

Thanks for the pics. It looks great! How does it hold up to the moisture?

Another Twinkie!?

Here's a few shots of our Twinkie. As I stated before, it's a work in progress.

Wow your twinkie is beautiful! I assume your dinette converts into a bed-I love your sleek design of it...do you have plans or did you wing it? I would love to do exactly that in our Tradewind.......except we have a jalousie window next to the door that may complicate things!

Argosy Dinette

Thanks for the compliment. I did try to plan ahead a little. With the fresh water holding tank across the front, I built a box the full width of the trailer. It protects the tank and provides support for the seats. The box also provides support for the shelf under the window. The front edge of the shelf follows the contour of the front wall and is about 6" wide at the center and tapers down at each end. I also built similar shelves behind each seat that follow the contour of the wall. Leaving me with a rectangle to work with in setting the dinette. The seat bottoms are 24"x40" and the backs are 14"x 40". The back is sloped about 1 1/2" which will leave room for a 23"x40" seat cushion. The back cushions will be 16"x40". The dinette table is just under 30" wide by 40" long. The seat height is 13 1/2" without the cushions. When you add the two seat bottoms and the two seat backs together, you get 23"+23"+16"+16"=78". It's 76" between the seat backs, which should make for a snug fit for the cushions when made in to a bed. Because of the door location and the fact that there are twin beds in the center of the trailer, I did not make it a slide out. So the bed is 40"x76". The table height is 29 3/4". The water pump is under the street side seat. The seat bottoms lift out for storage. I hope this gives you enough info.
The trailer was in fair condition when I bought it and we are only the second family to own it. I have remodeled the bath area as well as the galley. Stripped out all of the old copper plumbing and replaced it with PEX tubing and FLAIR IT fittings.
I'm planning a trip to Canada this year and hope to have it ready. The berthing area will have to wait until next fall.
I will post more photo's as the work continues.

Argosy Dinette 2

By the way, the seat frames are red oak with maple inserts. The seat bottoms and backs as well as the tank cover are 3/4" cabinet grade plywood with exterior glue. That's a fiberglass panel under the front shelf, which wraps around the corners at each end. All of the joinery is pocket screws with mortise and tenon joints.
