Well just back from Home Depot, I should have almost what I need to finish up the garage area, ramp covering will be here tomorrow. Then on to the coach area. Frank, sounds like a plan well thought out, and one to follow. I feel pretty good now so hopefully I can just pick up and go to the finish, I have two more weeks of PT two times a week and that's it for that . Popeye, What? yup I have those days too .

Terry I just saw your last 2 posts,,,finally back at , bet that feels real good !

OK , brain feeeerrrrttt. I meant to say which one is the toy !!!

The link didn't work because when I made it www.IRV2 forums was added to it..?
But manually , it worked just fine.


This girl's blog is an interesting read ,she has a full dressed harley pulling a tiny teardrop trailer and living in it fulltime !!.
I think I'll send her an invite to this forum thread so she can find a good bike mechanic next time she breaks down.

Good afternoon, I almost have the wall between the garage and the cabin framed, I doubled the main supports and I am Xing the main supports. All corners have 10"x1/4" steel corner brackets bolted in with 1/4" lag bolts. Then all joints will have aluminum plates stapled in for extra support. Sorry the pics are a little dark, still trying to figure out the new phone, too many adjustments. Popeye aren't they all "toys"? It does feel good to be at it again, get to actually think about building instead of other things not so much fun. I need to check out the link. Darn the one pic is sideways, gotta figure that out.

Looking good Terry.

Are you putting light switches and plug in on the divider wall?

Gordon, yup you can actually see it hanging down by the framing. Its a four switch combo, two strings of lights, load lights and fantastic fan power.

Looking good Terry, that wall is put in probably 4 times stronger than the factory one. That will really strengthen the whole trailer and you will not ever have to worry about the sidewalls flexing.

Good Morning, Bap, that light you saw was the end of the trailer . You are right we never have an end in sight, there's always another project in the wings . Going for middle 70's today, got PT in the am then back to work. Frank, I have a tendency to over build sometimes, but I thought that will control any thought of flex it may have, because the rear is all open. Have a great day all.

Really good to know that you are back at it! I have been enjoying this thread very much and look forward to this in the morning with my coffee. Hope the rest goes well for you and that the knee doesn't give you any trouble. Just had to comment on the progress taking place. Good morning

Skuh kuh kuh kuh kuh,,I was going to say that it IS a tunnel too.
BUT with that new wall ........not so much anymore ! That bracing will be worth the extra weight when going around corners.
Now you can start installing the finishing touches ,,,,,YES.
A cabinet here , a shelf there , a couple more things on the roof..... before you know it the mattress will be in and you can start sleeping out there!
AND THEN ,and then,,then Curtis will have to sweep off a spot for ya!

Keep the pics comin' ,your (large and ever increasing) audience awaits.

Popeye, Yup, all that finishing stuff, that can be time consuming too, the plan is to do most of the big stuff, then kinda finish around that because by then we will know what goes where. well gotta go to PT only three more after today .

well I'm ready for him. I just checked out the RV outlets on both the shop and the house to make sure they're both hot for when Lynne's bus gets here so we can get her Coach plugged in.

So come on,! I got one more 30 amp outlet.

Good motorcycle weather down here.

That is going to be a seriously rigid wall, Terry!


I would probably add some corner brackets at the back garage door just to stiffen it up there, so both ends of the "tube" are similarly stiff and you don't have a "stress riser" at the bulkhead wall.


Did you also brace the outside walls where that attaches to transfer its stiffness into the sidewall? I'd use plywood plates or blocking between two stud bays in the sidewall or make sure the top plate of the sidewall is a fairly continuous run.
