    Bed in a box! Who knew? Picked this up from the wal marts. Fits perfectly. Clark approves..but I bet Sparky will appreciate it even more!:D 20190807_194741.jpg

    I ordered a mattress for Ella's room from amazon. It came in a box too. Specific size for this location in rvs. 20190901_161124.jpg

    Couple more decorations to show.

    Brooke's cousin is somewhat of an artist. These are a couple Christmas gifts from back in the day. I thought the rv was a great place for them.

    Christmas gift from Dec. 2001. Just a couple months after 911. When the country did seem like 1 star instead if 50.

    I hung it right by the door! 20190901_180559.jpg
    20190901_180806.jpg

    Then there's this one.. Its a portrait of me..lol. not a very good one though. 20190901_180612.jpg

    Shooting to be at Fun Caravan for sure, but might Slide in a short trip sooner if all goes well.

    Our first trip in the rv was to Fun Caravan one year ago. Seems like a fitting place for the new maiden voyage.

    Alrighty...you have already saw the new a/c up on the new roof, but you didnr see how we got to that point.

    Here we go!

    After all the luan was in place, I sanded down any sharp edges and started rubber roof prep work.
    20190703_200146.jpg
    Wood dough makes uneven edges more even.
    20190704_025745.jpg

    After the wood dough dried, I sanded it smooth. The leaf blower was a great way to knock the dust off. (The darker panel in the middle is the sole surviving original roof panel) 20190710_153032.jpg

    Whenever I deleted the gas fridge, I had to fill the hole in the roof. Easy enough to do with 1x2s, liquid nails and wood dough. It's nice and smooth! 20190712_123913.jpg

    Managed to get Maycee up on the roof to help out a bit. 20190811_001808.jpg 20190811_000756.jpg filling in a few more screw indents with plastic wood at this point. Goes on pink and dries looking like wood. Sands smooth. 20190825_192152.jpg

    Then it was time to get the roll of rubber roofing in place and start gluing.

    Roof laid o0ut so it can relax a bit. It's nice and hot up high in this shed. Should make the rubber easy to manage. 20190826_161027.jpg
    Then I folded back the edges and added eterna bond waterproofing tape at every seam. I have done this process to every seam on this rv..not just the roof. 20190828_173155.jpg 20190828_175823.jpg


    You should come up here and do this for a while...Its rather warm up on this ladder. Wishing I had scaffolding to walk on, instead of constantly moving ladders. 20190828_174257.jpg

    After the roof relaxed a bit, I peeled back half of it and started rolling on plenty of, you guessed it... Glue!
    20190829_201532.jpg
    20190829_193633.jpg

    Hey! Theres my helper checking in on me! 20190829_194735.jpg

    Brooke was a great help on this part of the project.
    A lot more work happened but no pictures of the rolling roof into glue process. But it turned out great for a 1st timer. Couple of smaller air bubbles, but it looked better than alot of YouTube videos on the same subject. 20190829_213943.jpg

    Well. There it is. New roof!

    I thought this was cool.
    First time seeing my foamboard project from roof top perspective. Looks smooth! ( still thinking this is one of my finer ideas) 20190829_201736.jpg

    The first cut is the deepest!

    I was a little nervous, but I had to do it.
    A fresh cut hole, butyl tape, plenty of screws and a cool new Fantastic Vent. 20190829_231505.jpg

    Up on the roof .. up and running!
    This is an exciting milestone! 20190831_173029.jpg

    I like the look. Nice simple controls are nice too.

    I cut and fastened the trim to fit. This means I am 95% done with interior trim. :rockon:

    And WOW! This thing really sends some cold air to every corner of the rv..quickly. 20190905_005323.jpg

    Ok..going back to the future here...or something. This definitely happened before the roof went on.

    I split some 2x3s in half and started building the bedroom cabinets. Brooke held the top board in place and I went up on the roof( no rubber yet) and ran several 4 inch screws down through the luan, foam and ceiling paneling, to capture my top board. It is fastened really good and should stay put for a long long time.
    Next I cut a matching lower piece, and two small side pieces. I screwed and glued the lower board to the side pieces,then attatched it all to the walls via 3" screws going into the wall studs.
    I left some lighting wires dangling out of the corner so I could tap on for my dual reading lights above the bed/ under the cabinets. 20190821_213221.jpg

    Cut some paneling for the under side 20190821_213230.jpg

    Then started adding bracing and white styles
    20190822_232421.jpg

    I added foam board to the insides. Which makes it strong and rigid.
    Of course this was all glued and screwed together.
    20190823_000016.jpg

    Then I laid carpet inside on top of the foamboard. It was stapled to the framework. 20190823_161337.jpg

    Nice and strong!

    I bought 2 of these at lowes 20190827_201719.jpg
    Cut some holes in them for cup holders 20190827_201817.jpg 20190827_202253.jpg .

    The bedroom upper & side cabinet/cubby came out awesome!! Roof looks real good too. I hope the fantastic vent serves you well. I love mine for sure. Just some great progress on all fronts !!
