oldtrucksrul - Nice slide show on your web site. Looks fantastic! Could you tell us a bit more about the process? How long did it take. How much should I budget if I go down this route?

62overlander, Thanks! I wish the link to the 49 Trailwind 5054 had better/more pictures of the inside. The trailer came with an old stove, but I'm not sure if it is original.
