I now what you mean about winter yuk ! I had to take an early retirement because of my "younger days" and my abuse on my body. Two jobs most of the time, just go go go. But now I can slow down and build travel trailers LOL.

bap,

It appears, from your pics, that your garage is open correct? Hope so because living in the trailer without air flow is dangerous from what I have seen posted here. Wouldn't want anything to happen to you and your DW. Love the pics of your garage and throwing blades. I love shooting and find it very relaxing.

We are all enjoying this thread and the pics. Perhaps when my DH and I buy next year we will post info on what decision we finally make. Keep present S&B or build a new pole barn with garage for MH and apartment for us.

Harley1499, It's always great to help a friend. He will get involved in yours and you won't be alone anymore.

Look forward to following both of you now. Lynne

yes it,s open but the wood working shop is closed in and will have an exhaust fan out the back...my DW has the image of our vintage tt parked sideways in the middle and it will have a huge coverd porch with plenty of room for our new found hobby of restoring the vintage tt,s-we currently have a 68 aristcrat landcommandor and a 50s GTA.,
and yes we wouldnt want to enclose our living spot but it will stay nice and dry with good ventalation....

i dont want to /what they call hyjacking/ harley,s thread his build is awsome...and i cant wait to check on him every morning before i start work and every evening when the day is done....
thank you Lynne, for your kind words,,,as for our throwing it,s as relaxing as shooting but without the cost of ammo...lol

No problem, Bap and Lynne, its kinda like a conversation between friends. I did get the nose skinned, still have some work to do, have some spots to smooth out, but now its on to the roof, waiting for everything to come in.

You got so much acreage on the side of your trailer, I can see a 60" LCD TV somewhere on the outside to enjoy those games/movies while camping.

Just like everybody else, I'm enjoying the pics of your build.

I have seen those entertainment systems in trailers, I don't know if I would ever use it ? I personally don't use a radio, tv ect that much at home, my wife and I ride motorcycles (40+ yrs.) so right now we plan on being able to drive the 5th wheel to a campsite and staying to tour the area by bike. I guess if it was raining........

Pulled the old axles out today, we will be replacing them with all new ones, and adding one. And I pulled the old holding tanks I will replace them also, and move them up in front of the axles. Was a chance of rain still this am so I didn't uncover, very windy and cold today anyway. Tomorrow is supposed to be better.

Another morning at 33degs here, but all week is supposed to be days in the 70's so it should be a good week. today will be going over the roof area getting ready to put the roof membrane on. I just cut off the ubolts holding the axles, I never reuse them anyway. the backing plate bolts were easy break loose and turn off with my fingers, this trailer had no miles on it so no corrosion. I used to run a tractor trailer down to Moorhead, Kentucky once or twice a week, loved the area. Of course that was 30 yrs ago.
