Thanks for the comments! [emoticon]

Garry, What would you like more pics of, the doors, or the whole project in general? I have several more pics on photobucket, and some still on my camera. I also have an attempt at a blog, that shows some of the Restoration.

We had a Red-Dale years ago - a late 60's unit. The woodwork and paneling in it was spectacular. In fact they seem to have saved the most beautiful piece of paneling for the ceiling above the bed so you had something to look at as you drifted off to sleep.
It was a well built rig but I just couldn't keep up with the leaks anymore and it succumbed to rot. It was a sad day when I delivered it to the dump.
I Too would like to see more pics!

? Well bit out of context---nice doors, but a bunch of doors? Peaked my interest So I backtracked, found a couple of previous posts scattered thruout the forums. http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/25936126.cfm.
Ahhh...Obviously in the midst of major reconstruction of your Red Dale.
You should add your blog link to your signature... (id also pick a forum-make future posts there or a running thread so folks interested could follow along). Ya folks enjoy watching others work & pics of effort.
Thats quite a project!

Red Dale, not a name I have heard in a long time. We bought this one in the late 70s in Fairbanks. Pulled it one trip on the Alaska Hwy and then around the state for a couple of summers. In the early 80s, 1981 or 82, we moved it to our river front property, just upstream on the Kenai Rive, a mile of so above Soldotna Alaska. The spring shackles on both sides broke and had to be replaced and had a few leaks as well. Finally sold the 5th wheel and the property.

We had a bunk model Class C for traveling outside with, and a truck camper to take on fishing trips, in state or other short runs. We lived in Nenana Alaska at the time and just spent fishing time at the trailer, mainly in the summer time.

Here was another fall or early spring photo of my wife at the Red Dale. Someone had broken into the trailer, (see the plastic taped over the door glass) and had taken the fire extinguisher. That was all that was missing. No one around us had a fire that I knew of so that is a strange item to steal IMHO.
