The owners of the 56 Dalton own his and her trailers... this 62 Shasta Astrodome
is his. OK with a little "patina" inside, we're going to give this trailer just
a bit more than an exterior facelift.
Once we got it apart we discovered a pretty solid trailer. Typical Shasta damage
under the front windows and under the rear window. The front had been previously
repaired incorrectly with paneling that didn't match. Here Scott is rebuilding the
wheel well lips, another rotted area.
All the remaining interior was sanded and refinished. The new panels (including
a new closet side) were then installed. Here Erin is building up layers of a custom
mixed shellac until the new panels match the color of the original. Also notice new
underlayment has been installed in prep for a new floor.
Here the new flooring is installed. We always cut down 12" tiles to the more proportionate
9". It is always so much easier to lay a new floor with access, so we laid the new
diamond pattern before we closed in the front and rear of the trailer.
