Our online journal of the restoration of and adventures in our 1998 Aliner!
Wednesday, March 9, 2011
It's been a while since I've added anything to this blog. Spring, 2011 is on its way though. We pulled the Aliner up to the active part of the driveway yesterday and there are a few things we'd like to do to it before our first trip of the year, which is next month and it's a big one. We will be going to Myrtle Beach State Park. It'll be the camper first trip out of the state. It didn't go last year because we knew we had to replace the tires before such a trip so we tented that trip. So our to do list is:
Replace the tires.
Paint the sink/heater cabinet.
Put a removable shelf in at the seat for the laptop.
Lifts for the bed.
Seal off opening under the bed.
Replace the vent that I broke over the winter :(
Mike started up the heater today so while the camper was warm I went out and painted the cabinet. I had some DCR brown so that's what it is. I wish we had stained it initially, but we didn't. Mike says he can cut new wood for it, maybe down the road. I do like the DCR brown much more than the color it was. The darker brown is the same brown that I had painted the heater vent, close at least, and one of the electrically outlets. It looks better. After: Before:
