Default Got a 160T FunFinder, Did a quick Reno, Going to Burning Man

Hey Folks, I picked up a little fun finder from a great owner recently. I needed something for Burning Man and didn't want to spend too much and weight was a concern.

Anyhow, I renovate homes and can't sit still so I put in new floors and a quick spruce up to the dinette. Its got a cool real wood counter and some slick paint and hardware. I was really stoked how easy these are to work on, its just a little house.

I also tinted the windows with a specialty exterior film for heat and privacy (its a one way mirror now) and changed a poo valve (God help me). The prior owner really cared for this trailer, I knew I was buying it right. Here's a slide show of the work I did. I'll report back after the burn on how the trailer performs.

Well, I can't figure out how to post an image. I had a photobucket album setup but the rules don't allow.

Create a photo album on this site. Download you pics to it. When you want to post a pic, go to your album, click on the pic, copy the picture url, click on the "insert image" icon (looks like mountains w/a moon above them), paste the url and you're good to go.

Welcome to the forum! I can't wait to see your pictures. Sounds like you got a sweet little trailer.

Exterior after tint install.


Stock interior


Shellacking the cabinets so paint will stick to them. New flooring installed, purposely placed the lines horizontal to give a wider feel in the trailer.


Painted cabinets, butcher block counter going in.


Finished product


Cute lil camper

Gorgeous! Do you still need curtains at night?

Yes, blinds are needed. A one way mirror works with whatever side has the least light. So daytime, the inside can't be seen. Nightime, it would be the opposite once the lights turn on.

The main perk is the film cuts 80% of the heat entering through the window. The trailer stays cool much longer on much less effort.

Wow!! I missed this thread -- I was on the road almost all of August -- I am glad it popped up again! Dude, you could start a whole new career as a trailer remodeler. Very nicely done! Thanks for going to the effort of posting those photos.

How was Burning Man, by the way? Some folks who have gone said they could not really remember much about it . . . .

Thanks for the kind words, I'll be honest. The cumbersome process for getting images on this site had me not wanting to share the other mods I've done.

Burning man was amazing, had some issues w the trailer but nothing major and most were user error. I love the weird experiences and the playa delivered.

tmgordon - Very nice work. Don't let the picture posting process deter you from showing your mods. How did the trailer do in the heat? Did you run a generator for the a/c or try some type of 12v swamp cooler? Or a you a hard core Burner who says heat be damned? I spent a few years in Phoenix. A/C was my saving grace. I'm thinking you could start a Burner Wagon building business.
