Very nice photos! Thanks for sharing. We've been kicking around the thought of painting mine a bright white and I was unsure of how the brighter white would look. Yours looks awesome.
Mine should be done in a few weeks if all goes well.

Here are a couple of more photo's. I put the laminate floor
in.....the corners are tough and I am not the best at it. My wife
hand painted the Argosy Emblems and baked the paint on in the
oven.....it aint coming off. The White I used is Toyota SuperWhite II
color #040...Brand - Sherwin Williams(Genesis...Automotive finishes).

Like the Carolina Blue paint on the emblems. Looks like she's coming together nicely.

Keep up the good work.

Are your hubcaps origanal? I have a 76 24ft and have the same hubcaps but wanted to know if they were OEM. Mine are the same as yours.
I just did lino in my old girl as chickened out on the laminate but sure do like the way yours looks.
Thanks for the pics - looking good!!

Kevin245 - thank you for the compliment.

chuckmac - Someone who knows more than I do will need to answer
about the hubcaps. I have seen other photo's with these 'caps...so
yes - maybe. A good linolium job is quality stuff.

Do you find that having it painted white helps to keep it cooler at all?

Just curious.

Thanks, Mary

Hmmm, I don't know if it makes a difference. For the most part this camper is taken to full hook up campgrounds due to wicked tiny black and grey water tanks. If's it warm we turn on the AC which turns this little trailer into an icebox within minutes....
