Vent stack issue is resolved...thanks Becky!

I did get a few things done this weekend...tub tested good, no leaks in the drain system so it's installed.

The new flooring arrived last week so it is now installed...I tried some piping along the edge...kinda like it.

The interior is starting to look like a camper!

Oh very nice combo with the darker floors. What width are those boards? I like them a lot.

I like that floor-to-wall trim, is it the rubber edge molding that's designed to go between countertops and the wall? That's what it looks like to me, very clean, looks good.

The flooring is from Lumber Liquidators, a Cherry Laminate, 8" wide (4" wide pattern) x 47.5" long, 12mm thick. It was priced right and claims to be water resistant...dunno what it's made from but it is HARD! The small amout of cutting that I had to do completely wore out a new bandsaw blade...sparks flew every once in a while. I bought 12 boxes and have 3+ left over...humm...gotta check their restocking policy

You nailed it...ivory colored from one of my favorite suppliers...VTS! I am laying a bead of sealant at the edge of the floor and will use the edging where ever the joint is visible.

No bragging about new toys unless you post pictures of you using it!

Vernon,
That Cyclo Polisher is one cool tool! When you get all done with this polishing, your Dolly will be so bright that it should be plackarded "Warning, Eye Protection Required".

The floor looks great, very exciting! What kind of piping did you use?

i did try it out tonight...after fighting for :30 with a power outage at the shed (dang ants)...it didn't take much effort to remove the lines and clouds using a liquid white rouge. More results to follow...I hope Mrs doesnt find out I used her sweat pants for the polishing bonnett

Well I'm fully prepped for that...I still have the wrap around shades from eye surgery...Kinda makes me look like an old fan of Richard Petty...

The piping is from VTS, meant to use at the countertop/wall joint...I will use it where ever the floor-wall joint is visible (about 12" with my current floorplan!)

Still working on the %@&*^$!!! pool...the new skimmer split so out it came again.

The Mrs picked out the bed/bath divider curtians...Hobby Lobby has some pretty cool stuff!

I did get Dolly's roof painted. Instead of removing the silicone from every rivet and every inch of seam and every vent and then resealing with vulcum...I used a roof sealing paint from Lowes. Of course I now have to tape off and polish up to the white area...

Of course I had to play with the cyclo...the entire curb side has a pass with white rouge.

Back to work at the office tomorrow with a 1/2 shaved face...

HiHo, every one of your projects are looking great! Hey, in your spare time you can head south & I'll put all my 'Stream projects in a line! I picked up a '55 Flying Cloud Whale Tail a few weeks ago & of course it needs a shell off!

Window glass tonight! All of the Mrs's hard work on the window frames made tonight easy...

VTS Butyl and gray glazing strips made the job super easy...

One point for future reference, 3/32 was the original glass thickness...and it's unavailable in my area. 1/8 glass works just fine!

Was all your glass broken, or did you just repair a few? You're right....Mrs. HiHo got the raw end of that deal! The window repair was a nice, rewarding project. Your trailer is almost finished! Looks great!

2 of those were plexiglass and the 3rd had the glass glued to the frame. The glue was thinner than the original mastic so the glazing strips didn't stay in the slots. We had to break the glass to remove it. I'm hoping all of the other windows are repairable, it looks like they are in good shape, just need to replace the gray glazing plastic.

We have spent some time with a brass wire wheel in a drill, cleaning the openers and latches for these 3 windows. We still need to remove the fossizlized bulb seals in the frames and install new ones.

Progress has slowed because of camping trips and other weekend activities. These windows were the last "must get done" items before Dolly's Big Memorial Day outing!

Enjoy the Memorial Day outing. It's well deserved for both you and Mrs HiHo.

Good way to recharge the batteries and rebuild the motivation!

Dolly's 1st coming out event!

Even though I've stayed overnight at hunting camp, I really didn't consider that her first real trip. A one-nighter at the Ameristar Casino with full hookups counts as her first official trip.

The 100 yard polish looks ok...still need to do some more detail work. Redneck Airconditioning works but looks ugly. No running water but the cable system works. Black system is functional. I hope nobody notices the curtians are all different (and I hope Mrs doesn't notice that most of the good towels are missing from home)
