A bit about our camper. A 2002 Arctic Fox 990 with a dry bath. I was so excited to find a camper with a dry bath! The reality is the shower is smaller than a single kitchen sink, a 6-foot-tall human can’t stand up and comb their hair in front of the sink, and the toilet is so close to the wall that you can’t…you know. So we removed the sliding door and added a curtain, which is still not ideal.
We’ve done a lot of work. The roof had some leaks, so we had to repair and recoat the roof with Dicor Coating and reseal all the things installed on the roof with Dicor Lap Sealant before we could even take it out anywhere, and of course it rained all summer.
We decided we hated the uncomfortable dinette, so we took it out and cut down the lower cabinets and installed a futon. We really like the couch but we still haven’t figured out how to make it recline so we screwed it in place. We can tip the seats forward and store our folding camp chairs and our patio mats behind. You can get a futon just like ours at Amazon: DHP Emily Futon Couch Bed
One day I made a big mistake and put a large container of water in the shower and the fiberglass shower pan cracked. We thought we’d have to replace the shower completely, but couldn’t find a replacement. So the hubby repaired the fiberglass and coated the shower pan with Flex Seal. It turned out nice and is a non-slip surface too.
This spring when we de-winterized, another leak! This time we found a hole in the water heater. Ugh. So, we replaced the water heater with a new Suburban SW6DE. That was not fun! We had to pull the oven out…
Most recently, I’ve decided that I don’t like color of the cabinets, the walls, or the floors. So I’ve pulled out the futon again, the cabinet that is more easily removable, and the carpet! The plan is to paint the walls and cabinets, install new vinyl plank floors, rebuild the cabinets again (I’m researching 8020 extruded aluminum), change the trim on the slide out, do something different with the window treatments, replace the fridge panels with mirrors, and install some Lagun table mounts.
Stay tuned for more posts about our camper remodel and travels!
