Travel Trailer Repairs

The trailer had a leak and the whole back wall rotted out.  Jordan has been repairing it.


He had to tear out the whole back end of it.  This is what it looked like on Sunday evening.  We were hoping for no rain.

Tom is helping with the rewiring.

Look!  Up in the sky!  It's a bird...

This is what it looks like on the inside.  I guess I'll paint it.  Or, maybe some cool wallpaper.  Meagan, any ideas?  I'm probably going to take out the carpeting, too, and replace it with linoleum.  If I have the time and energy, I'll take down the window treatments, replace the shades, and recover the cushions on the couch and dinette.

Jordan said it was all storage space to begin with so I would think paint it and the put back the storage area?

We will put storage back in, but there's a window there, too, and a big part of the wall shows.

The window doesn't show in the picture because Jordan hasn't cut it out yet and it looks like just a solid wall.

Gut it and start over. It's disgusting.

We can't afford to gut it and it is not disgusting.

Looks like you have your work cut out for you. You may have to take everything out to clean and renovate. Did the leak get to any other part of the trailer?

No, he tore out everything the leak got to, although there was a separate smaller leak where the little closet is near the bedroom. He's going to work on that at a later date and we're hoping it's not as big a job. I know that things like this often turn out to be a bigger project than anticipated.
