I have the same model down to the beautiful yellow countertop. My wife and I just got home last night from a trip to the Florida Keys. What an awesome trip. Ocean front at Bahia Honda key.

After today, I will have replaced all of my front windows. The large middle one found a rock yesterday afternoon. I have glass insurance with USAA and only have paid my $100 deductible for each window. The side windows would have cost over $1000 installed for each one.

As for other changes, I've done it all. Axle, AC, tires, jack, plumbing, polish, floor, bathroom, the list goes on. Feel free to reach out if you need any tips. I also have the original owners manual should you need a picture of something.

In mine it operates the roof light in the mid section of the trailer. Took a while to figure it out for us to ☺ We also had to un rivet our switches from the wall and pull the toggle switches partway out and spray some electrical contact cleaner in ours to get them working properly. They worked kinda sorta before, like the light would come on mid toggle but not when it was completely up or down. They work great now with no need for complete replacement

Just an update on the progress. The trailer is up on its on new wheels. I think I have the rear tail lights wired correctly now and working. Im still waiting on the front wire plug for the trailer and my truck to show up.

We started painting the interior wood work, I wasreally in poor shape and full of tabaco smoke. The front bed/couch had two of the three wood main supports broken, I made new ones for them.

So I need to do work to my e-150 van also. Im going to up grade my leaf springs, replace my leaf spring shakles that are really rusted, and replace rear shocks. The list goes on. But preperation seems to be key.
