Now I just have to figure out whether to take the solar equipment, inverter and LiFeP04 battery out of the 2720SL and put all that in the Elkmont. It's about $3,000 worth of equipment (and a lot of hours of labor) and it would increase the asking price for the 2720SL substantially to the point that it may not be marketable. I just hate to pull all that stuff out though because it is a truly self-sustainable set-up. We've never had to use hook-ups since I finished building it out.

For a few years, Trailmanor made a non-foldable version using the same lightweight construction methods. If I had room in my driveway I'd have considered one, but the reason I got Trailmanor in the first place was because it was a hard sided trailer with a full washroom that could fold up.

Yes! That was the selling points for us, as well. Love it!!

Here is a link to my build post.

https://www.trailmanorowners.com/for...ght=fiberglass

If you are good with fiberglass and not a big person, this really isn't that terrible of job. It was very hard on me because I'm 6'2" and 225#. I'm also in my late 70's with extreme arthritis in my wrists which makes working with my hands difficult.

If I were in my 40's or 50's this job wouldn't be bad. I have a long background in fiberglass production on sailboats. If I had it to do again, I would build a mold and just install the finished tank.

Either way, I recommend installing a steel reinforcement where the wheel well is. I used 10G steel plate and fiberglassed it in place during the fiberglass build. This pic was taken of the form, just before starting to lay the f/g.

Just for the sake of interest, in what way is your recirc toilet faltering?

I bought it in Riverside, CA. However, It was stored in Palm Springs for many years.

I sanded the front half of the roof real good, primed and painted it with Rustoleum white. Then I installed 2, 320W solar panels on the front. When it warms up a bit, I'll finish the back half. I just wanted to get the lithium battery and solar installed first.

I replaced all the (rusty) stabilizer jacks and installed an electric tongue jack. I hated those stabilizer jacks that have the hole in the drive unit. I prefer the ones with the 3/4" drive nut. The 3/4" socket in my cordless drill works so much nicer than putting an alan wrench in the drill. While the jacks were all removed, I painted the frame & tongue.

More projects.....
