We are still dealing with cold snowy weather here in NH so I've continued to clean up the windows and some aluminium trim I moved to the basement, but over the last couple nights I've been able to work on rebuilding the rotted sections of framing in the front half of the camper.
I picked up a Keg pocket hole jig kit at Lowes and that is proving to be invaluable. It allows you to attach wood together with a very strong joint and is perfect for tightening up the existing stapled framework and building new frame sections. This will also be crucial in making the new dinette area, the kitchen and the closets / cabinets as I rebuild the interior. I really can't imagine how I'd do all that without this little tool.
Amazon, Lowes and ebay retailers all have this kit for under $40 dollars. Its called the Kreg R3.
I made a little demo video of how it works.. Very low budget.. no special effects.. Here it is :
Here's an updated picture of the interior where I'm working..
The Starboard side of the dinette area is done and the port side is almost done.
Next I need to rebuild the entire front wall framing floor to ceiling.
