Several of the forum members have trailers of your vintage. They will be able to answer any of your questions. Do a search for older HiLos. Best of luck as you do your restoration.

Well time for a long over due update.
I had to let her sit for quite some time, while I cleared out other projects.
I found a very nice replacement for the lifting power. A Hydraulic Power unit from Northern tool with remote control. Works awesome, but i think I will install a proportioning valve to slow the rate of accent and decent.
I just have it temp set up for now.

After I got her going up and down, I started with some cosmetics. Picked a nice retro sky blue and ivory combo. I also stripped and sprayed bed liner on all the exposed frame.

Completing the interior gutting now. Over all not too bad, some sub floor is rotten and must be cut out and a little water damage on the vent area, not too bad.

Need to decide on insulation, thinking rigid foam for roof,and fiberglass for side, may add radiant barrier over the whole thing in addition.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Love your exterior paint job. Blue happens to be my favorite color. I would stick with rigid foam panels for insulation in your walls. That is how our 1990 Classic was put together. If the fiberglass would get wet you would have a soggy mess. Can't wait to see your new interior.

Thanks. I'm thinking maple paneling and hardwood floors going for a cabin feel.
Right now still cleaning house

What kind of radiant barrier are you thinking about using? I was debating the same thing

Reflectix HVST48050 R4.2/R6/R8 HVAC Indoor Double Reflective Duct Insulation 48" x 50 Ft or 60" X 125'

Something like this, 2 sided, bubble wrap. Can get it at home depot or lowes as well. Offers some r value and reduced air infiltration as well. West side wholesale on line has better pricing and bigger rolls.

Wow the paint job looks great. Nice motor for lifting the top. You must be very talented to be able to do all that yourself. Congrats. I'm new here as well just starting to absorb info. Yes it will be quite the learning curve for me anyway.
