it's not finished but it is coming along nicely. I still have 1 more cabinet to build, doors for the pantry, finish the bathroom wall, plumbing, & hard wood floors. I would say by Reynolds it should be done. I had a real good time building this, so this trailer is going up for sale when finished, just so I can do another one. one thing I will tell you is I walked through some living quarters Saturday & OMG the quality is NOT there, not to toot my own horn but when I build something it is made to last. for example all the cabinets are glued & stapled together, all the wall studs & sheeting is screwed together & construction adhesive @ all joints. I pitty the fool that ever decided to remove the interior. I have been weighing everything as it is installed & so far I have added just shy of 500 lbs.

Great job! I bet it sure smells good in there with all that fresh wood. Sounds like you're really doing it right, too. I love woodworking!

I went & looked @ some trailers a few weeks ago just to get some ideas, & what a piece of crap!! the quality is so poor until you get into the high end featherlite trailers. this trailer will be going up for sale when it is completed only to purchase another one just to do it all over again. I plan on doing it a few times until I can afford a featherlite of my own. when I do the trailer I keep it will be trick. I have a customer that is sawing some old growth cypress wood he said I could have some, so it will have cypress cabinets, & it will even have a fireplace. one thing I can say is with the little extra weight in the nose of the trailer it tows so much better now, we went to the track last week & wow what a difference.
