At the risk of being tacky, I’d like to invite all of you to check out the Truck Camper Magazine Calendar Contest. One of the contestants just happens to be an American Road Camper! How about that?! There are some beautiful shots of all styles of campers. Please check it out and vote if you like. You certainly don’t have to vote for us! Here’s the link. While you’re there, you can subscribe to TCM. It’s free! It’s a great e-magazine published by some really nice folks. Thanks for taking the time to have a peek!

The light at the end of the tunnel

Been at it hard since July 1. Much of, if not most of the wood structure needed to be repaired or replaced. This picture shows some of the new studs which replaced pieces that had completely rotted away.

Here’s the new rear floor and side structures, still in process.

Jump to last week. It’s always fun to see the shiny stuff! But it wouldn’t count for much if the hidden parts weren’t up to snuff. We really think things have come together well. Previously, the floor felt like a sponge. Everything is rock-solid, now. The door closes effortlessly with a solid “thunk”. There is still a lot to do, but I keep having to remind myself that we’ve come a long way. It’s been quite a journey.

There’s still a ton of trim left to be installed. Baseboards, cabinet edging. And all of the cabinet doors will still be refinished.

These are the new cushions. We’re happy with them. Not the original (unobtainable) fabric, but still with that 70’s feel. We think, anyway. The camper feels pretty good to us. Any thoughts? Stay tuned! It won’t be too much longer!
