Finally made a little progress on my 1989 Lowe 16ft Jumbo V. First thing was a better trailer with new bunks several weeks ago, not the one shown.
Next is to give it an aisle in the middle bench similar to this Lund.
The ribs don't line up with the front or rear of the bench so I had to rivet angle across them and to the bottom of the bench. It'll get two cross members per side. The bench is made of .040", same as the Monark I had. I'm surprised how flexible it is so it's good this is being done before cutting out the middle piece which will be about 16 inches. Home Depot has a nice 90 degree drill attachment for $18 which came in handy.
All the insulation will come out so each side can be used for storage and go in new compartments along the sides. For now the plan is to use 5/8" composite for the floor with 22 gauge aluminum on each side unless something turns up between now and then that already has aluminum skin.
One side will get the starter battery and the other battery will go up front to spread the weight around. Undecided on a livewell. All the new stuff will get sand colored vinyl from Cabelas. Should be a lot of fun.
