Wow is right!

Great job and appreciate that you share your methods and your material sources with the rest of us. It is always good to see what others have done and learn from them. Sure beats trying to figure it all out ourselves. Thanks.

I think your trailer is awesome! I have a '75 TW that I'm doing a shell off. I'd like to copy your floor plan. Do you mind?

I'll have the water heater where you've put your air conditioner. I'm ok with having the door back there as long as it's in the middle.

I'm wondering about your fridge. Is it duel fuel? I notice you don't have a big flew. I don't see a cooktop in there either. Do you plan to put one in?

I don't have those awesome aluminum bulk head cabinets, darn it. I'll have to come up with something that gives as much punch.

Do you think you'll miss having hanging storage?

I missed where your furnace is?

Toastie,
Where did you find this item for $17.00? The best I've found it for is about $40.00.
Thanks, Spike

Working on stove top, fridge venting and gas line hookups. Cut 2 access holes to be able to attach and detach gas lines. Will vent fridge through floor and out the side per Dometic instructions. For my gas lines, will use coated stainless steel gas connector to black pipe.

Yep, not to be used where they are exposed to excessive vibration.
