Wilma the Wondering Wagon

Hello Folks
I did an intro in the New Member Intro section a while ago and have not updated my progress for a while.

I reinstalled a few window that Im going to keep and sealed them with windshield Urethane, should be leak free.

We finally got the floor stripped, rust holes patched, and treated for rust. Then I painted it with industrial Rustoleum.

Next is filling/covering the seat mounting holes with fiberglass and fastening the wood sleepers Im gong to use to help support the OSB particle floor, its not really needed as a function of weight support but Im going to screw the OSB to the sleepers and glue the foam insulation down.

Small progress.

Ill try to keep ya'll up to day more often.

Made some progress this weekend.
Got the mounting rails for the 6 solar panels installed in the roof and the junction box. Got all 10 extra windows sealed up and glued to prevent water intrusion. Got all the wood sleepers screwed to the floor, and covered the extra high mount lights covered for bondo fill in after the fill in glue hardens.

Went shopping to, got a 25 gallon AMSE propane tank, new for 150, my 4 water barrels for 10 each, 20" camper oven/range for 40 and the on demand water heater for 75. Also got 150' of white 3/4" pex and fittings for 20.

Next step is roughing in the electrical and water runs.

A Little more progress

Made a little more progress, got the electrical roughed in and the ceiling furring strips in as well. Got the holes for the roof mounted flasher lights covered as well.

Next step is cutting and fitting the floor insulation and OSB. Still waiting for some fiberglass cloth that I am going to use to fill the seat holes.

Some more progress

For those that are interested. I made some more progress Sunday. Got the holes in the floor covered with fiberglass and resin, then installed my 1 inch polyiso insulation and finally the OSB wood on top of that and screwed it all down to the sleepers i laid previously.

It was loads of work but very satisfying to see the floor.

Next is the insulation of the ceiling and the walls with the wiring secured.

Slow and steady.
