1978 International Tradewind Interior Restoration

Been awhile since I posted, but just got back from Cassini meet so I wanted to post some pics of the interior work my wife and I did over the winter. Complete overhaul of the interior, front gaucho removal and dinette upgrade, new kitchen and bathroom cabinets with Corian counter top, new toilet, faucets, new slide out bed, new bamboo flooring. See pics and hit we with any questions you may have. The only thing we paid for was to have the Corian counter tops fabricated and installed. Sam

Sam, I'm sorry, but you are a bad person. If my wife ever sees those pictures, I'm dead for sure. We have that exact same trailer, and I'm really struggling with the rotting tinker-toy interior and cabinets. So, what materials and stuff did you use?

Details, man, details!!!

Real nice design and makeover! Better looking than some new ones! Love all the extra counter space next to the sink. A real kitchen made for cooking. This is close to what I would like, except with twin beds somehow and a lounge area instead of a dinette.

Materials for interior

"Sam, I'm sorry, but you are a bad person. If my wife ever sees those pictures, I'm dead for sure. We have that exact same trailer, and I'm really struggling with the rotting tinker-toy interior and cabinets. So, what materials and stuff did you use?

All interior materials are 1/2" furniture grade plywood, 2x3 studs for the frames. On both sides where the wheel wells extend into the interior, I used 2" aluminum angle material, pop rivet it up against the wall and used it as a ledger to hang the frame off of. Most of the original drawers were reused in the cabinet so i wouldn't have to make new ones. I can send you pics if you like.

Great job Sam! I know you painted the bulkhead walls but I can't tell if you painted the vinyl coated walls? It really opens these trailers up removing the bulkhead wall by the galley. Very bright and comfortable looking.

I did not paint the vinyl coated walls. They were in good condition and I had read on this forum about some issues with painting vinyl coated walls, so we left it alone. Sam

I love that couch/ bed you made! I am going to have to save this thread as our couch/ bed had mold growing on it. Yucky! We pulled it out and now need a new seating area.

Don't know what year your AS is, but ours was the 70's vintage, and the wood was not good quality. We wound up building our own cabinets out of 1/2" furniture grade plywood and then painting it. Some of the original partition walls we actually primered and then painted to match. Sam

Hi, ours is a 2000 excella, but it has that typical 90s golden oak cabinetry. I want to make it look more updated, but I hesitate to paint because I don't want to make it look like a funky makeover. I just think it would look so much brighter and updated without all that golden oak.
