So I had a pulley break and I had to pull out the cabinet where my water storage is, and I noticed how shabby it is now.  Its 25 years old so its held up well i guess.

So if im using that as a mold, what do most people rebuild or reinforce with?  Paneling ? Plywood?

any neat ideas or suggestions?

Turns out thin plywood works fine.

Thanks

Interior Mods

Before you start, weigh your PU fully loaded. You may not be able to use heavier materials.

We rebuilt the entire interior. New frames with a little heavier wood, and better bracing.

We used regular wall paneling for everything.

We used laminated flooring (much heavier than what is stock).

We also built new counter tops with Formica.

There are other albums with more mods in by Webshots page if you want to browse.

Worked out very nice for us.
