I didn't know what forum to post this in. It's a camper trailer but my camping is usually done in a tent. It will serve as a hunting lodge but I'll use it on the away from home trap line too. When it's parked at home it may just be a place for us boys to play cards.

But, at any rates, here it is! My knew MAN CAVE. :P

I just brought it home yesterday. Ain't much to look at and it needs a bit of work but I couldn't beat the price. I traded the man a service call for it. I've been wanting one for a while now. Well, ever since hurricane Irene demolished my hunting cabin.

Here's a shot of the starboard side, front door.

And the port side,

Here's inside looking through the front window

Here's a shot of the rear from inside,

And a shot of the bathroom. Well, as best a shot as I could get anyhow.

I figure I'd give you some before and after shots so's you'll know how talented I am. B)

Just wait till you see it again after I've added another bunk, a kitchen, fixed the leaky roof, sealed all the metal gaps, smeared some paint, fixed the floor, reworked the bathroom, added cabinet space, built counter tops, added gas and/or battery lights, built a dining booth, installed my wood stove and the final step, the crown jewel, the finishing touch.... Added a rifle rack! ;)

Man you ain't kidding it needs some work. You could always cut some bigger hole in it and use it as a hunting blind :lol:
I'm sure you will have it in tip top shape in no time.

I was told that if I put my wood stove in it then it would be "the coolest camper ever!", so you know how I'm gonna heat it now, right? :lol:

I refinished a wall hung lavatory today to hang in the bathroom. Old and rusted but now it looks like NEW!

Even better yet, I got a man working on all my faucet trims. They are being Camouflaged! :woohoo: Tub valve, shower head, lav faucet, kitchen sink faucet and even the drain for the lavatory. All in Mossy Oak! It's gonna be SOOOOO cool!

I'll keep y'all posted.

I've started destruction on it.
I've ripped out most of the bathroom and torn out the inside of the starboard wall.

There is a board along the bottom of the starboard side that needs replacing all the way down, the frame work in that same wall that's bowed out, rotten and busted that I'm tearing out and replacing. I've got that wall stripped out to the outside metal.

Still got to get the bathroom floor up and the holding tank out.

I hope to work on it some more this weekend. I'll see can't I get some pictures as I go along.
