Hello, I’m Eric and my fiance and I ( I mean me, let’s be real she of course was against to getting a camper) got our first camper and it’s a 1992 , 23 foot loaded Funlite, it came with I believe all options including the Oven and original Manual and all the individual manuals got all the components.
Everything works besides I can’t figure out the furnace yet, haven’t looked at manual yet as I’m lazy.
And now for the fun stuff; the camper came equipped with everything it left the factory with and for the most part only some cosmetic blemishes so to speak as it’s a 92. So YES! Since us millennials love to fix and change everything we are. ( again I mean me) restoring/ remodeling it!
This is going to include the floor plan being changed, possibly the bathroom/shower getting changed and put together (you will be sitting in the shower or standing in it to use shower). Going to try to stretch all the space and can get.
The kitchen counter is going to be shortened in length and width, space between the stove/range and double sink eliminated. Also the space behind the stove to the wall of the trailer removed, so 5-6 inches length cut from wall, and 2 feet or 32ish inches of width gone!
We are toying (I mean I) with the idea of moving the kitchen to the other side, or moving it down towards the front to create space where the kitchen was, this will give us a actual space for a master bedroom bed, then move the shower/toilet to where the wardrobe was, the bed will cover all of stuff I removed so I don’t have to worry about floor design and the shower will take the space vice verse on the other side ! The sink may get removed all together or have it in the shower too, gonna make for a compact shower:toilet but if you think about it, you will have more room while using bathroom and you won’t be in front of the folding door.
I started sanding & staining the cabinets, doing some roll on wallpaper with some beautiful wood designs, installed led lights everywhere, replacing the Ceiling exhaust fan with a remote one, 600 AH of some new batteries , panels soon, and exterior paint soon.
I’ve missed a ton as these campers need a lot of work to bring them to modern tech, but they are great platforms in my opinion.
Also installed a smart projector on my AC vent and the screen hangs on the folding walll. It’s perfect ,
Also needing to replace the sliding track for the wall I got a nice updated one from amazon and going to go with some new wall elements and before you know it , it will be summer in AZ which means not much camping without hookups so I’ll be doing a bit of the work then at night!
As for right now we take it out every couple of weekends and it does a good job, tows well, had to work out some electrical kinks but now she has LED rear trailer lights that can be seen well and everything works like a charm
Anyways if you got any how tos, to share by all means I’m. It trying to reinvent the wheel but I’m no newbie to Motorsport and things we love to waste money on forums I know there are threads written on mostly everything and the last thing I want to do is do something someone else did, I’m exploring a new world with all my own creativity on a huge platform with a lot of space so I’m excited, but when it comes to stuff that will get set on fire or flip the trailer on the highway I will be reading everything
If the pics i linked dont work, heres a google album i put together, ill upload some actual pictures when I get some REAL work done.
