Show us your wood!

I must admit to be a fan of the wood cabinets and trim panels in the older trailers...Let's see what your wood looks like..

One of the major attractions of our 1992 Sovereign was the real oak cabinets that have nicely "mellowed" over the years. They are in great condition and are one of the few things that we're not changing! She's up at our renovation guys shop right now getting a ton of work done but here's a couple of pics that show the cabinets/wood.

Jeez, they're all gorgeous! Stunning! Maybe someday one of our rescue-restos would be worthy to post some photos here!

What kind of oil did your PO use? I'll rush right out and get a gallon...(Hmmm--maybe two gallons). Seriously, what kind?

Vivian - We use Watco Oil in Red Mahogany (got it at True Value Hardware). Light sanding before first coat. Allow to dry for a few hours and then buff. Applied 3 coats.

Show us your wood!

The rich Golden Oak interior was one of the things that I remembered from my first expereince with my first experience with my 1964 Overlander Land Lacht International as a 5-year-old child in 1964. The original owners were fastidious with its maintenance through their 16 years of ownership, and fortunately the second owners didn't paint the woodwork. Fowler RV Interiors restored the interior to its original glory as can be seen in the photo below:



This coach has been my dream coach since 1995.

Here's our redo of the bathroom vanity in our '71 Tradewind. The flamingo on the curved door is cut into veneer which is glued onto lexan. When the light inside the cabinet is on, the flamingo lights up.

First of all, PICS please! I want to see the awesome flamingo.

Second, how does that door open? Looks like knobs on each side, but I don't see how it would open OR slide?

Nice job though. Very professional detailing.

We're still working on getting the flamingo lighting evened up. We're using a scrap of LED strip light and it tends to over light some areas and under light others. I'll put more pics on the blog (below my sig) when we get the lighting ready to show off.

The door lifts up and then out, using the same track that the sliding doors do. I couldn't curve the track, so I used short sections at crucial places to position the door where I wanted it. The top track is double deep, so there's space to push the door up enough to clear the bottom track. All that's behind it is plumbing and the light. The switch for the light is in the compartment with the TP roll, so there's no reason to open it unless the plumbing has issues.

interior of my 66 globetrotter

here are some shots of the work i have finished so far.for better privacy,i installed double doors leading into the bathroom.materials used were birch and then stained using 3 coats of golden oak and finished off with 5 coats of polyurethane clear(sanding with 320 grit between each coat).i am in the middle of changing the front sofa into a diner style seating area which was very simple.i was able to utilize all of the wood from the guacho and then sent the cushions off to be split in half and re upholstered.table configuration was tricky ,but i got it figured out.the table will still be able to be stored in original location ,and unlike the diner twins that come factory,my unit makes into a full size bed.pictures to follow upon completion.......jimmy

Beautiful!

Sanding between coats like that is a lot of work, but sure gives good results.
