Forty years of funk…

“Ow, we want the funk
Give up the funk
Ow, we need the funk
We gotta have that funk”

-George Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelic

It’s takes decades to achieve this kind of funkiness…but we are in it to win, once again.  After completing the frame and sub-floor redo (as well as numerous other replacement/repairs) the Argosy commission job has moved on down the line.  About a week after Jessica picked up her camper we pulled the Dream Stream II into it’s place next to the garage.  The dumpster was replaced and we have begun the demolition process.

We find all kinds of strange/random things when pulling these campers apart.  This one produced: a 1970s copy of Trailer Life magazine, two pairs of underwear, socks, a postcard from the 1980s, etc.

Beyond the items left behind, the other discoveries include floor rot, evidence of leaks, hack job repair work, and all other kinds of funkiness.

As we did in the last renovation, the black water tank will be permanently removed and a “composter” used instead.  That cuts down considerably on the funk factor in my opinion!  Even still, we have a ways to go…the funk will be with us for a bit longer.  Stay tuned!
