We began gutting the travel trailer on Friday. Eric (college president) took a sledge hammer to interior walls and cabinets. I felt more comfortable handling screwdrivers and the crow bar. Chris and Sara joined us for the strength work.
After five hours of applied adrenaline (sounds like a degree offering), we stripped the trailer down to its aluminum shell. All that remained was stubborn sub-flooring and a pile of rubbish large enough to fill a 15-cubic-yard dumpster.
