Camper Renovation - And Then This Happened

So the last time we checked in with Camperrrr things looked like this. It even got to the point where dad said I should go ahead and start priming some of the wood. So I did. Yay! So exciting.


What's that hole? Oh, just the place where the air conditioner goes. It's all fine and dandy except for one thing: that itty bitty piece of metal.  See it? It's about an inch wide?



So one day I'm bopping along and Camperrrr looks like this...



and. then. this. happened.


!!!!!

Yeah, my thoughts exactly.

Gee, how to explain. Well... from the beginning my dad has been going crazy about how there's not a single straight line on this camper. Awww dad, she's just vintage ok? This issue has been well and good (besides driving my dad banana pants crazy) until it came time to put the roof back on. Because guess what? There was just this 1" gap where the roof wouldn't cover the side! AHHHH. I ask my dad why, oh why?!??  And well, as my dad likes to say: this camper's crooked as sh*t!!!

Touche

Yes, we've had the joy of taking the entire roof and front off to figure out what was causing the problem. And after trying to come up with a solution there was finally a general consensus to replace the roof. More $$$$ yayyyyy! Just kidding... my immediate response to this problem was to just buy a new roof. Dad finally agreed. Good thing, because I was going all kinds of crazy.  I mean hello,  look how nice and spacious the the camper is. Look at all that natural light! OMG. 









But that's no biggie. Still love my Camperrrrr!

  2. Totally know what you mean Tressa! There's NO way I could have done this without my dad's generous help. :)
