Yes, thank you! Since I turned a '91 Excella into an Atomic Modern era interior. I did not care about keeping to it's original theme/age.

I think the best outside for the inside of our trailer will be void of a decal stripe as it is more atomic without it. And thank you for those that also confirmed the extra maintenance needed as it will surely crack, fade and peel in the extreme Florida sunshine.

Now I need to get a hold of P & S to let them know to hold off on the decal. I hope its not too late! We'll soon see...

Here are a few interior shots before & after:

Looks great! I think I'd put a silver band in the beltline & rubrail! You have to put something, I think, because of the rivet line in there....not the best look without something IMHO. Black might tie in with your interior too. Great job!

Indeed Becky B, they'll be replacing the blue rubber/plastic gasket along the beltline & rub rail with new material. I thought the blue (used like a condiment ) was just enough color to keep it from being too silver. It will be the appropriate tie in when the awnings are down too.

If you have a blue awning, absolutely!

There is no comparison, but your house could use a refresh,

That's not MY house...I would never paint real wood white. I'm more of a real wood/70's earth-tone type. The 70's orange/green/brown tones have been back "in" for some time now. But, it's apparently time for the 80's to rear its head again.

But, they always say what goes around comes around...

I think the new look is sharp. Not my style, but looks good, anyway.

What did you do to keep the aluminum walls inside shiny? How do you keep it low maintenance?
