Project Overview

This unique trailer is a phase project - meaning it's been completed in stages over a couple of years and will be done very soon!

For it's first phase, we did a full gut and shell-off restoration of the frame, added new axles and struts, and mounted new tank carriages and brackets for the new layout. A new subfloor was install and then we reattached the shell. Once she was all put back together we added new fans, AC, insulation, wiring, and all new aluminum skins on the inside. Finally, she was polished and went back home to her owner for the next phase.

After she returned to us, we dove right in to the next and final stage for this project - the full build out! Our tech's got busy securely adhering some gorgeous hickory laminate to the aluminum interior skin, and definitely won some awards for their ingenuity in making it happen! Once all the interior walls had their new wood finishes, we put in the new flooring, and started the build out. Our master carpenter, Jay, set his sights to fleshing out the design and dreams of the clients including a twin bed layout that converts to a king, custom cabinetry in the kitchen to maximize the space for storage, and a dinette that converts to a twin in the front. Last but not least, the electric fireplace has a spot carved out for it as well!

After the build out, we removed all the cabinetry for painting, sealed the interior skins to bring out the depth of the grain and give it a little shine, and then reinstalled all the cabinetry. From there we've been knocking out a punch list of items to get her all finished up - we love the details and are looking forward to turning over this custom showpiece to her owners. We are proud of our work and hope you enjoy the process of her build!
