Project #6 - LED accent lighting

Posted 04-29-2013 at 12:43 PM by outofcontrol

I bought 4 reels of RGB LED waterproof strips. A bunch of connectors, wire, and Music controller to make the lights dance with the music!



Also fabricated a press brake to bend sheet metal... Should have just bought the one at HF for $60. Oh well.

Project #5 - The J-Lounge

Posted 03-25-2013 at 04:30 PM by outofcontrol

This project was going to be months down the road. Once we spent some time with the trailer and did some research, and thought about it.

Our maiden voyage was supposed to be this weekend as well. Then the complexity of having a joint ownership reared it's head. My wife assumed we'd be sleeping in the now plush and private rear Mega-King (see project #3) bedroom. The Brother and his wife also assumed they'd be sleeping in the new (awesome) bedroom. Tensions were getting high,...

Project #4 - New floor.

Posted 03-25-2013 at 04:12 PM by outofcontrol

Well, we were going to wait on the floor. The laminate floor in the coach was cupping in places, and delaminating in some other places, but for the most part it was fine. Project #4 was going to be a remodel of the living room. Until we pulled out the Gaucho and realized that the floor didn't go far enough forward. Now project #4 is the floor, and #5 will be the living room "J-Lounge"

Here's the "before"

Project #3 - Convert twins to Mega King

Posted 03-18-2013 at 04:38 PM by outofcontrol

We share this trailer with my wife's brother. It's a great co-ownership, and we spend a lot of time camping together anyway. The problem is there's 6 of us. 4 adults, and 2 kids (so far). We're done having kids, but they have one, and are talking about 2 more.

Stage 1 - Convert twins to queen + twin in back.
Stage 2 - Replace front goucho with modern "J-Lounge/Dinette" for better eating, lounging, and nighttime accommodations.
Stage 3 - Add bunks to rear...
