After four years of teaching a Salt Lake Community Education Class, So You Want To Restore Your Travel Trailer, we’re going to try something a little different — A Camper Restoration Webinar.
The class is open to those in the greater SLC area through the Salt Lake Community Education program, as it’s been done in the past. But, now you can join the class from anywhere in the world. Included with the Webinar is a copy of Streamlined Aluminum Trailers: Restoration and Modification ($29.95 value).
The class is broken down into three days:
April 05, 12, and 19th
And, held from 6:30 to 8:30 mst.
From the Salt Lake Community Education flyer:
This class will help you understand what is involved with restoring your travel trailer. Each week will cover topics like electrical, plumbing, chassis, skin, interior decor, and more. This is an informal class, no work on trailers will be done. The class is designed to help you understand the many aspects of camper restoration including time costs, prioritizing projects, resourcing materials, etc.
The instructor, Daniel Hall, will share insight and experience gained from restoring campers at Camper Reparadise. The first two classes are a slide show style course covering construction techniques of campers (canned ham/fiberglass/Airstream) and the components to major systems, tips and tricks included.
The third day is a tour of the shop, where there are many styles of campers in a large variety of states of repair and renovation that we’ll review. We’ll also take a look at the tools and equipment used to complete the restorations.
