Been working on stripping the exterior. Got that pretty much done. Have some water spots to get out and then polish some day.

Interior: am getting together everything I need to rewire for 50 amp.

Pulled one piece of paneling off and was pleased to find wood strips attached to the aluminum ribs. Will make everything easier. Did an AS Overlander shell off 10 years ago so this one is looking much easier (and less expensive) than that one was.

Heres a few more pics....

SS are much better built interior-wise than AS....

It only took me a couple days remove the interior of a 64 overlander. Been working on this one for over a week.

Getting there though. Will take some pics when all is out.

Going to rewire for 50 amp service and then start the reconstruction...

Floor looks great so far. No rot.

Maybe someone can answer this for me....

Is there a reason that I should not put my new load center on the street side of the trailer?

Seems like a waste of money to run my 50amp supply from street side to curbside where the original was...

Is it because the bath is street side?

Thanks...

it looks good!
are you planning on reusing the same cabinets and appliances and relocate them on the with the new layout or you will be building all new?
BTW do you feel comfortable sleeping next to the load center?

Keeping original fridge and range and the overhead cabinets. All other cabinets being rebuilt (close to original style).

Replacing old tub/shower with standup shower and expanding bathroom 8" toward rear. Creating custom shower pan due size and shape requirements.

Building new bed frame with storage and front sofa frame. Debating whether to make it a sleeper. Leaning toward it right now...

It is a park model so it had no holding tanks with the exception of a small maybe 10 gallon pressurized fresh water tank. That and old water heater both came out. Putting in new 6 gallon water heater (elec).

Trailer will not be used without full hookups...

If I was doing a rewire job on one of these beauties, I would use the plastic flexible conduit and THHN stranded wire. You could always replace the wire without gutting the trailer.

wow sound like you have some skills!
It shouldn't be a bad idea to make the front sofa a sleeper, since you a building everything there.
Now just wondering why not adding some tanks ? It should be a nice add on specially if one day you need to sell it.
M2HB has a good pint there, matter of fact we are right it down for the next projects

I would also use the conduit for speaker wires and antenna/computer wires. As technology changes, you can pull new wire for your trailer and keep up with the latest and greatest technology without a lot of effort.

When I repipe my 34' Avion and get rid of that Polybutelene, I will run "PEX a" in conduit where the areas are hard to get to. If the "PEX a" ever deteriorates, changing it will be easy.

I thought about conduit...

There are so many short runs it would be much more hassle than it is worth. You would have to drill holes twice as big to get the conduit thru the ribs and wouldn't be much left structurally.

My pex is going to be outside the skins so it easily accessible. All hidden under bed and cabinets and anything that isn't will have a box built over it.

Started pulling new wire in ceiling. Got one section done and that ceiling section back in place. Have to go pick up more rubber grommets to put in all the new holes that I drilled for wire. Probably have over 300' of wire into it when all said and done.

I also am planning a 50 amp upgrade during restoration. Going to use 1/2 inch emt to run the circuits thru trailer, excellent protection and ability to make later changes is available.
