I have a 14 foot camper that I am going to start to strip the inside out of for a chicken coop, if anyone has any pics of one they finished could you please post a few pics to give me a good idea on how it turned out. The inside of the coop will be about 7 x 14 and I plan on having a 12 x 12 outside area for them to play in ,,

Here is a link to a horse trailer that turned out real good.

I know it's been a while, but as I'm about to embark on the same project I wondered how you made out?

I'm getting my RV in the next week. I'm so excited to get going on this. I've been trying to get one all summer!!

I highly recommend using Blackjack #57 on the floors and up the walls. You can do a search for it here on BYC, there's a couple of great threads on it. It's a thin rubberised coating, that will keep your wood from rotting, and pest and predators from chewing their way in. Easier to clean, with no worries of water or chicken waste soaking into your wood. I'm coating the roof of mine also, to prevent future leaks.

Hope that helps someone!

Heck yes! Built in security, built in ventilation. I'm so excited about this, it's ridiculous.
