RV Remodel 3

Everyday I see a little more progress on what we are tearing out and what we need to redo.  I have a million and one ideas in my head.  I can't wait to get going on some rebuilding soon. 

We still have to repair all the leaks including the roof and do a rain test to see if we got them all before even starting on the inside work.

Framing around the front door.  Isn't it beautiful!

 Framing along the bottom of the wall.  It was rotted from front to back.  It's pretty neat to see how this was made.  But sad to see the lack of care it received.  It has good bones just a little wear and age.

Holding the roof up while repairing the frame bottom.

Repair along the bottom of the framing at back door.  This huge jack was invaluable!

Framing along the kitchen window wall.  That's looking great!

 Framing along the kitchen wall, this is the refrigerator area with the pantry and wardrobe behind it.  Nice and sturdy now!

The front area to the right on the front door.  This window had been replaced.  Nice window, sucky job on sealing.  Going to frame it in now!

That's a lot of work in a few days now.  I see progress!

Until next time.....

  1. Hi Bonnie , I am enjoying your rebuild both for entertainment and for information . I just bought a 1985 Fleetwood Prowler 31ft. kind of a odd egg can't find any info on it no pictures of how the interior was when new. But yours is similar as kitchen is same set up , and same bathroom setup . Mine also has water damage to front crns. and possibility rear crns. also. All the appliances work and the lights also work . I plan on taking everything out and stipping everything off trailer renforcing trailer and adding longer tongue and possibilty of wider axles and adding steel to sides to increase width and strength then rebuilding trailer and adding second floor bedrooms . wish me luck LOL and thankyou for the pics and story of your rebuild. sincerely deb bushee orwell, VT
