this weekend was a productive one to say the least. i came across a photo on pinterest where a couple took out the dinette in their camper and put in a desk instead, which made so much since. since it will mostly be just me, maybe one other person, sleeping in the camper, why take up a ton of floor space for a dinette? Plus, making and upholstering the cushions was going to be a big expense and I would have had to remake the dinette table. Me, my dad, and his crowbar took out the entire dinette in 30 minutes while keeping almost all of it intact in case the next owner wants to reinstall.
In addition to the table, we wanted to build a cabinet to go over part of the wheel well and provide some extra storage. who knew building a cabinet would talk so long! On saturday, we met up with local handyman Mike who has a lot of experience with campers to talk about replacing some taillights and gas lines. He was a super guy and was SO MUCH CHEAPER than the dealership. I can't wait to have working taillights and to be able to use my stove. Mike said that me and dad were fully capable of patching and sealing the roof ourselves, which is going to be a lot of money saved, so we tackled that this weekend as well.
now left to do is patch and paint the ceiling as well as a couple other spots, install the floors, paint the exterior, and decorate!
