More Cabinet pictures. Again, more parts and pieces being varnished. This type of frame work is how it was done in the legacy trailers with the great wood interiors.

Assembly process. Nice to have clamps. Small pieces into a unified whole.

Most was mortise and tenon joinery and some kreg jig used for face screwing my circumstances allowed

So what is being made is the base units A twin bed, a galley cabinet, a new front Gaucho (more on that later) and a side dinette, (more on that later, too)

One thing I will say, it is hard to out do what the Airstream Engineers already worked out. One time you can win is if they didn't do something for cost reasons or time. So if you are willing to do either or both you can improve the end product.

My wife and I took a chance deciding to go with a new gaucho in front and a side dinette. The dinette is a little tight, just for two. The gaucho slides smooth as silk on 500 lbs drawer slides. These heavy ball bearing slides are relatively expensive and heavy. This was a rare weight splurge. They weight in at just over 30 lbs. But no jerking the bed out.

You can see the full scale drawing and functions as a mock up. I enjoyed designing it. The table top is customized for my wife and me, with our initials carved in the top and filled in with epoxy and ebony dust and then varnish with many coats.

Wood workers knows the thrill of applying that first coat of finish on the raw wood as shown in the next to the last picture.

1973 Tradewind Reno-Rehab

That is some very impressive work, lots of different skills all well done and detail oriented.

Nice work man!

It was worth letting all of those pictures load.


Brevi tempore!

Thanks for the complement.

On to some upper cabinets. I went with sliding doors on the uppers. Some of the pictures show the track that the doors run in.

Also a couple pictures of door clamp ups.

But first some pics of the dinette table. Which I like a lot. It kind of a fun thing.

Now you can see bulkheads are up and I am about to install some very nice lights from VTS. I believe there is 11 of them. 6 are led all have a steel chrome or stainless base. One picture show the cedar strip shower wall that was epoxied and fiberglassed. Another shows the bases I made to mount the lights to before attaching to the underside of a cabinet or a bulk head.

Tony

We are almost caught up now. Plumbing, Fantastic vents some other cabinetry. A bit of a journey from the original. Funny how none of this was in the plan when I bought the Tradewind.

It is a place to get things done. Something I know you know how to do. You helped me by replying to my previous posts and I thank you for that. You and the many others who kept me moving forward.

We first timer don't do it alone.

Holly caschmolly, what are you doing the rest of your life. Besides enjoying that Tradewind. Most excellent work and nice pictures. Even the trim pieces for the lights are gorgeous.

Sorry my little 65 Tradewind you'll just have to be happy being our nice very unfinished Aluminum tent.

You can see the heavy duty slides I spoke of on the new gaucho. There is a picture of it closed and another open. Also there are pictures of some more cabinetry that gives some great cubbies for storage. Also the way the cabinetry was designed allows the installation of Marmoleum flooring that is
6' 7" wide without a seam.

Next to the last picture shows fitting the base of the cabinet with a plan to the true shape of the floor.

One picture shows a Sapale shelf that is above the new water heater and is the home of the new microwave. Above is a new 4 burner Atwood stove top. The two replaces the original Stove/oven. I will miss those fresh, warm biscuits.

Thanks Hittenstiehl I am sure that 65 brings much pleasure.

Sometimes I feel real silly spending all the time I have on my Tradewind.

I am spending a lot of money and more importantly a lot of time. I just want to use it!!!

I was going to start building a 21 foot boat ( Tolman Skiff) but this Land Yacht may have cured me of that notion for good. If not I am asking for an intervention.

You are welcome, very skilled and particular craftsman you are. Your pictures will be very helpful for some of our work in the future.

And yes our 65 brings pleasure. We camp in it as is and enjoy. We have two, both needing lots of work but the deal was to always keep one serviceable/tentable.

Enjoy

Keeping a trailer serviceable is the way to go. It was really tough not meeting desired dated a couple time last summer. Still working on the thing shhhsssh

Also thanks for the complement.

Duct work running to the back of the trailer from the new Suburban Furnace under the sink. Also a good shot of the electric in the nonmetalic flex.

All neat and tidy and out of the way. One thing I did do differently is on of the duct work terminates under the shower pan. The heated air permeates under it and then out heating the bathroom. Another run terminates toward the front of it. Just past the twin. You can see my use of mixed woods in the framework of the bed. I didn't think pine was the best choice for the horizontal members so I used the sapale for it.
