i started installing the ceiling sheating yesterday with 5.1 mm revolution ply. the girlfriend likes the natural colour so i wasn't going to paint it but even though i washed my hands before i installed it i still got greasy mitt prints on it, if i can't clean it off i'll be painting it. our first off road event is coming up in less than 3 weeks so i still have a bit of time before i have to load up the gear.

I definitely like the color of it. Good luck with the clean up. Interesting stuff as I had a look at their website. I am new at this, and I had no clue what or where luan was, other than mine came trimmed with it over the seams. I am certainly no greenie, but getting rolling on solar last year, no reason not to get a little thoughtful on "stuff".

I had a gal visit mine, with just the factory wall and floor plywood, and she said she loved the natural look. Go figure.....

it's been a while since i've updated this page, more to come soon. the weather is almost warm enough to install the new interlocking soft flooring, rv door latch and a long list of other things to do....

installed a swivel style trailer jack in a different location from the factory jack. i found that the factory jack bottomed out on rough roads/trails and the handle interfered with the spare tire on my jeep wrangler.

i've always been nervous of knocking over the propane heater so i made up this folding holder. haven't used it in the field yet but i'm sure it will work fine

i got the interlocking workout mat installed today. it's so nice and soft on the feet, hopefully it will add a bit of insulation and sound deadening to the floor too. it's time to load all of our camping gear, first trip will be the weekend after the victoria day holiday, also know as the may two-four weekend up here....
