Default updated pic on my 92 vintage TM 23

Well the rehab is coming along the wife and I haveing alot of fun getting it back up and running thank goodness almost all of it is cosmetic. Everything up to this point works just waiting on a little warmer weather to test the water lines and having troubles keeping the flame going on the stove but will ask that in another post. so here are some more pictures. took out the A.C. to open up for more storage best thing i done so far. carpets taken out have new blue carpet will put in after finished cleaning. enjoy.

Wow. Lots of work. Many of the TM owners have laid down a laminate wood grain style floor with great success. Have you thought about that? Much easier to maintain.

rvcycleguy, I was thinking about the wood grain flooring but then i was thinking about how much the carpeting would help with insulating the floor. If we need to use it in the winter time or in colder weather i was thinking the carpet would help keep the cold out any thoughts on that thinking?
hillbillyhotel, yes i like the stove/microwave setup better, like the wife said most of the time we will be in campgrounds and want to cook out on the camp fire. And if we crash at a walmart parking lot then the stove will do just fine not like we will be cooking a turkey in it i hope. As to the lights on the front bed we bought it that way, is this not a factory setting. the lights themselves either can be turned on at the light or by the black knob on the air vent in the cieling.

Rg, I hear yea about winter camping. We spent two weeks in near freezing weather this past christmas. As we know though, camping is a outdoor event. Most everything that is outside will get tracked inside eventually. The fact I can now sweep out the floor in seconds is all worth it. A couple of warm throw rugs goes a long way...

We have carpeting in ours - and I wish we didn't. As cycleguy says, a few throw rugs are good insulation, and real easy to clean. A new floor is high on my to-do list.

Since you have the cabinets apart, have you considered putting the drawers on roller slides? I did it in our first TM, and it was wonderful !!

Wow! Looks like a full remodel. I like the back bed area without the wardrobe. More open area which is what I want and more counter space.
Consider that with carpeting, you need someway to clean it, small vacuum? With the
vinyl flooring, just sweep with broom and rugs can be shaken. Consider the carpet runners that you can buy by the foot at Lowes. Run from the back to the front. Heavy enough to stay in place on the vinyl or hold down ends with carpet tape.
My carpeting came with a plastic cover on top put in by previous owner. Keeps carpet clean but why have the carpet?
And with my dogs, I want the vinyl, so next project is vinyl flooring.
Your TM is going to look great!! Better get moving! Warmer weather this week!
TIME TO GO CAMPING!!!! YA!!!

It's interesting to see your '93. Almost 20 years later the same design is still being built, with refinements. That speaks well for TM.

Please update us on your progress.
