I’ve been googling my camper model to get ideas and inspirations for my renovation. I’ve got a 1971 Shasta LoFlyte 1400. Well I found the exact same model for sale on eBay and reached out to the seller, Heather, the other night on the phone. Yeah, phone. Crazy concept I know. Anyway, it was awesome talking to Heather and she graciously agreed to send me pics of her trailer so I could share them with all of you. Thanks Heather!
She says that her trailer was in way worse condition than mine when she bought it. Unfortunately she doesn’t have any pics of the inside, but I LOVE this pic of the outside getting painted. This is exactly how Smart Jr. and I want to paint ours! No really. Even before we saw Heather’s . I love the classic lightning bolt. And turquoise is my BFF. I was wondering if it would look weird to paint right across the door. Or if it would look weird to paint the accent strips white so they wouldn’t be accents anymore.
Well now I know… both look awesome. I love how it turned out! I will probably end up painting my bumper and hitch turquoise too.
Heather’s husband gutted the trailer and they came up with their own layout for the remodel. She put in a standard twin mattress with a lot of storage underneath. I plan on keeping the couch, table set and bunk bed in my camper. I may have to remove them to put in new flooring and wall paneling, but I’ll put them back the same way after. We need all the sleeping space for our family of 5.
The new modern refrigerator is tucked behind the fence door. So clever!
They took out the bathroom completely and made the kitchen cabinets one straight shot across the back. We are completely undecided on what to do on this end of the trailer. Of course I love the color!! Our kitchen is going to need some work. And we want to keep the toilet, but aren’t sure of anything else as far as the bathroom is concerned. But of course I’ll keep you posted! 🙂
