1968 Renovation Almost Complete "Atomic Overlander"

I've nearly put the finishing touches on the interior and have about half of the shell polished. Here are some interior pictures. Will post pictures of exterior when finished.

We went with a mid-century atomic theme for the remodel and are pretty happy with the way it turned out. I'll have to say that the additional lighting and accent lighting, while not really practical for a boondocking scenario, makes all the difference in how it feels inside. It's strange how lighting can make the space feel bigger.

Neat remodel! I love seeing trailers where folks have picked a theme and stuck with it. It's really lovely!

Very cool.
What is the "control panel" behind the cookie jar?

Very nice job! What did you use for your flooring...tiles or one piece?

I used laminate tiles as I feared ceramic tiles would break while on the road. For the grout I used a grout mixture with a latex base so it would be flexible and not crack while in tow. Just towed it about 700 miles and everything has held up.
