Finished the wiring today, every thing works! Should be ready to hit the road for a test trip by the weekend. Cool!

If you are camping in Colorado you might want to visit the Hallmark factory north of Ft Lupton on Hwy 85. I toured the factory last year and was impressed with the setup.

It's been a while since my last update.....our oldest daughter got marries, so we've been busy. I had some triangular plates fabricated to use for front tiedowns. They attach to the front of the box, bolted through where there are two layers of sheet metal spot welded together. Not exactly happijac, but they seem to work fine.

The shower install is complete as well. A hose is pulled out from an access door at the rear of the camper, so that the water can be collected in a bucket. It's pretty tidy, as long as no one forgets to pull it out before showering.....probably use a sink plug in the drain as insurance.

I read the post about visiting the factory. I plan to do so in July. I've been to the Coyote RV factory, and hope to stop by Outfitter too. Each make has some nifty features. Who knows, if this truck camper thing works out, we might need a new one....

Well FINALLY we got the Cuchara out for an overnight, but had to go on a rainy weekend. Everything checks out except the battery isn't much good. That's going to need to be replaced asap. A 7 foot wide popup is quite a bit cozier than one that's 8 or more feet wide, but it's sure easier to see around. The overhead bunk is a little cramped for sit up room too, another compromise for offroadability. I also noticed how heavy the old girl gets when loaded....I'm thinking the next pickup will be a tonner. Not that easy to find a SRW tonner though. My 7 year old daughter had a great time, caught a trout too! Pretty good weekend.

Hey Dave, glad you finally got on the road and the pictures are alway welcomed. I also just got back in after three weeks in my TC..Fished the Black River in Ar. for Ky. Bass with the SIL and White River for trout. If anyone is near the Whiite River they need to take advantage of the high water. The trout are bunched up and the big ones are coming off the bottom for a snack..Brought home 60 for friends. Good luck and keep enjoying with the family...Happy Trails.
