Fixing up an old 1960′s Santafe Travel Trailer.
A few days ago a friend dropped off an old 1960′s Santafe travel trailer for me to do whatever I want with. “He gave it to me and I didn’t pay a cent for it”
All he wants is the old axle. Which is fine as the axle needs replaced anyhow before I take it on any long trips.
I had thought about scrapping it. But have decided to put a little money into it to make it a nice little camper to visit family with and go on camping trips. I may even decide to live in it full time.
I’m single right now and it’s just the right size for me. I don’t plan to make everything original looking in it.
But just plan to do some renovations to make it a nice little travel trailer.
It has some water damage that I have to fix. I’ll get some pics of that soon. Part of the floor is rotted but I plan to just tear up the whole floor and replace it with new osb.
And then use some vinyl tile over the plywood.
I’ll then build in some cabinets and add a stove and sink and toilet.
This travel trailer was gutted by my friends dad to be used as a storage shed for some tools.
Here’s a pic of the trailer itself on the outside. More pics to come of the inside and the renovations to it as I progress this summer.
All the leaks have been stopped except around the roof vent which is getting replaced hopefully in a few days.
Most of the paneling is gonna be removed and replaced with some I already have laying around. And it’s gonna get a total rewire.
Here’s a few photos of the frame work redone. This is the window frame work over the kitchen area.
Below’s a pic of the bottom frame work redone.
Next is the flooring I redid in the front portion. I tore up the old rotted plywood and laid some new osb down.
After redoing the floor I added a countertop and stove I took out of an old dodge motorhome.
I built the frame work for the counter top and just used the counter top from the old motor home. The frame to the counter top in the motor home was rotten.
The kitchen counter/cabinet still needs to be fully built. But that’s how far I’ve gotten so far.
