It has been some time since I have been on this forum and I apologize for not following up sooner. I left this forum with the intent of driving down to Oregon to pick up a 5-wide that was for sale down in Salem. We looked at a custom 2005 and found it in excellent shape. The interior had been completely rebuilt - paneling - and is somewhat unfinished.
We bought it and towed it up to Washington state. This was the first time I have done any driving with a trailer. We were 'fortunate' enough to have record breaking rain all the way home. We got a little water inside - either by the doors or the axle given where the spot was. I am not too worried given the torrent she was in. We have her in the garage now, high and dry, fully dehumidified. We expect to just leave her in there for the winter and finish the unfinished and completely customize her.
I have been enjoying myself wiring up my command center. It must have a primo stereo in it though it will only be used quietly at night. I love my jazz. It already had a ridiculous inverter in it. I decided to keep it and I have already positioned my AC outlets. If you see the photo of the interior you can see that one of the cabinet doors is missing. This is my command center and I already have a cabinet maker that is going to make a cool black 'glass' front panel. I have some lights to get installed as well.
Vicki is into natural decor - animal skins (legal stuff), natural wood, things of the earth. She is a real artist at it creating a number of Indian leather dresses and quivers. Anyway she has plans to put in small beams of bent wood and cargo carriers lined on the outside with fur. The bedspread will be made of various patches of leather and suede. She already has put up wood candle holders with those LED candles - looks like a show piece.It is going to be wild literally. We have hooked up with a local auto body place that can duplicate the PTs color and trim.
Hope you don't mind that I rambled on. We are going to love working on this in Winter and camping this Summer.
