How stained glass installed

For the Vista View windows I cut and fitted oak trim at either side. I put weather stripping along the edge of the glass, pushed the piece in the existing plastic window trim and pressure from the oak trim keeps the piece in place.
For the sky light basically the same thing with oak trim along all edges. After installing this piece the first time I noticed flex in the piece so I cut a square piece of 1/4" Lexan which supports the whole insert.
We haven't traveled yet but they will stay in place. I've done stained glass for a long time and I'm not expecting problems. I don't think the motion of the trailer will effect them. The inserts are installed tightly but not so rigid that movement should damage them. We'll see. They can come out easily for cleaning when necessary by removing 4 easy to reach screws, the skylight 8 screws.
We had the lights on inside the night we installed them and the Vista Views look great from the outside of the trailer.
If anyone wants to know how they do, let me know and I will post an update. We head out for 6 weeks at the end of March.

I think we need to close this thread... Every time I read the updates, I buy something.

Twice already today! Thank goodness the Dyson Fan was sold out.

Lol! Unfortunately it wasn't earlier! Lots of $$ spent watching this thread! I love the nautical theme with the stained glass.

Ebay is your friend! I had to buy multiple lots to get enough but it's not expensive.

New Plumbing

We're the newbies on board (and by the way, thanks for your kind welcome). Our latest acquisition is a new, adult-sized, porcelain toilet, as opposed to the torture device that came with our 2010 Flying Cloud. Since only 3/4 of a person can fit in the bathroom to work, I "supervised" from the dining area, handing in tools and paper towels as needed. To do the job, my husband had to kneel on the floor. From where I sat, I could butt, lower legs, and feet. Reminded me of confessionals of the old days, but "Bless me father" was NOT among the words coming from the bath. Finally, though, the "throne" was in place. However, the pipes did not meet. Three trips to Home Depot later, it is still a work-in-progress. Despite the frustration, though, my husband is having a great time tinkering with our "new baby." He's thinking about using flexible tubing to bridge the gap. Anyone with experience/suggestions along these lines?

I got a great set of Aqua and pink vintage Lucent plans cups and bowls, plus some oilcloth to make a tablecloth for the dinette. Also got a bunch of fabric samples to start think about recovering the cushions.

I did a similar color scheme re. stocking our kitchen with plastic plates, glasses, and wine glasses. Not vintage, but a friend had given me a set of eight plastic pink flamingo plates for my birthday years ago, and I decided our "new" trailer was just the place for them. Didn't want anything breakable, yet didn't want to resort to paper plates and disposable cups, either.
