A few pics of my '79 Safari interior refurb..

Just thought that I would put these up for folks to see. I've been working on it for about 8 months and we are finally getting ready to take it on it's first maiden voyage(short trip but I wanted to have one hoorah before it got too cold) Cabinets and dinette are all custom and the cushions were made by a local Amish gentleman. The window film art lets in plenty of light during the day and provides privacy at night.

Used a flat latex on the walls. Benjamin Moore, I believe.

Great job Thom!! I know this is the original floorplan of the 79 safari but are there any weight distribution issues with having the kitchen/galley all on the one side? The reason I ask is I posted an update floorplan concept for my 72 tradewind, where I moved the entire galley to the curbside and there were a few comments about the weight distribution. thanks

I haven't really noticed any weight distribution issues thus far, although I have only towed once since the refurb. That said, I will be upgrading the axles next year. I haven't weighed it, but I know that the difference is going to be significant. On a side note, let me just say that the original shower/tub material is some of the flimsiest stuff I have ever seen. I know it's over 30 years old, but when I was cleaning it yesterday with a towel my hand nearly went completely through the corner in the bench!
