New fridge

Here are a couple pictures of the 1960 Trade Wind trailer, from the outside and inside. I've done a little more polishing last night (using another polish that is working great that I found at a truck stop) and have a few pictures of the new fridge and flooring we've been working on. The fridge is a Dometic RM3862 that I found on Ebay. It came out of a 2003 Airstream that had been rolled and salvaged. It is huge, and works on propane (has to have 12v to do that) and 110. It mathes our woodwork quite well too. The trailer is really coming together. Having an operational step really makes the trailer too! Now to work on the water system to get running water, and then to fit in a house AC in the rear cargo area. We are headed to San Diego for 3 weeks on Saturday, so not much will be happening on the blog... it's a work / vacation as I am taking the family with me this trip! Enjoy.

Not too much going on but some polishing. The Trade Wind is looking nice! We are putting in a new 27' above ground pool so I've been busy getting that all in. I do have the new floor in on the Trade Wind under where the fridge sets, and the new Dometic fridge is in, so I'll have to go out and get some pictures of it. And the new step is all there too. I've been making those flag pole holders too, and have shipped out 4 of them so far. Feedback is that they are happy with them - so that's good too! It is a large fridge and it makes it really nice out there boon docking, running on the propane. Here are a few photos that I took last night after re-arranging some in the yard. Disregard the dates on the pictures, as I forgot to adjust the cameras dates after changing some batteries. SYDTR!
