Terry,
I know how the last PT feels, it is a relief and one more thing off the mind. I bet it feels really good to be back out working again. You are correct about being beautiful country around here, we are in Hollywood, SC which is just south of Charleston.
Frank

Looking good Terry. Glad the knee and weather are cooperating and you are able to get back at it. Just a thought, saw that you were putting in another electric outlet and remembered that any outside receptacles need to be on ground fault circuit. And I know you will pace yourself. Y'all will be on the road before you know it.

Terry - progress is happening. I cant remember if you were going to insultate between the garage and living area.

Looking forward to more pictures as the progress builds.

Good Morning All, Frank, yup good to get all that stuff over for sure, have fun down there in Hollywood. Ron, Yes, the outside outlet is on a string that's protected by a GFI. The knee reminds me if I try to do too much, but its not bad, just going slow, little hard to get down on my knees yet. Gordon, yes I insulated between the garage and cabin. I would have had the piece of wall up that I was working on yesterday and remembered that the radio needs an antenna, DUH, so I have to go out and find an antenna wire this am. need more adhesive for the ceiling too. Have a great day all.

Glad that you thought of the antenna before you put the ceiling up. I think that we all have done that at one time or another, and had that DUH! moment.

Rebuild

Frank, the real DUH moment would have been when I was hooking up the radio and looking for the antenna . I was looking to make the wheel chocks removable, I know they make them and or the attachments to make them that way, but I didn't want to pay the price that most wanted. So we started looking, I found these neat E Track attachments that will make "things" work with E Track, all I had to do was remove what was on the chocks and drill two holes and bolt them on. cut a section of track and I have a neat wheel chock setup. Once I figure out where the bikes have to set I will screw them down,( the E Track sections)

Looking good Terry.

Might be time to list everything you have left to do and make a flow chart after almost missing the antenna.

Hot and ready, help yourself

Looks good Terry, Are you going to run a piece of channel underneath the floor and attach it to the frame rails to bolt the E-Track to? I wouldn't trust just bolting it down to the floor.

Silly question; don't you need to anchor it in the back as well to keep it from tipping forward when you are stopping?

Good Morning All. Jay, the mind is not what it once was, I am making lists now if I can ......find the lists. Frank, all the "factory" Toy Haulers I have checked out only have them screwed to the floor, I don't know what the thickness of their floors are but mine are 3/4" and according to the specs if screwed with the proper size spacing ect. it will be strong enough. The plates that I am using are rated (each) for a 1000lbs (if installed right) so I will have four plates for each motorcycle tie down, hopefully I have planned right, maybe Gordon can jump in, he has alot of experience in hauling the bikes in a TH. PushedAround, the way the chock is made they don't flip up when you hit the upright, we used them in the bike shop just freestanding to make room because upright the bikes use less room when we were storing them. Really all we are doing is using the chock to keep the bikes up so we can tie them down. We are building the ceiling panels today, big step hopefully we have figured the process correctly and it works . Have a great day all.

Terry,
I guess, I am just paranoid about the strength of something screwed into wood, I've never had any luck with it holding good, maybe I've been doing it wrong. I'm one of those that over engineers, if 1/4" chain is strong enough, I use 5/16", you get the picture. The way I've seen some of the construction of these newer RV's, I wouldn't trust those hold downs to tie down a 100# bicycle, let alone a 1000# bike.
Frank

Frank, if you can build it, you can over-build it.

I once put up a satellite dish in my previous S&B, and a tornado could have taken out the house, but that dish would still have been there.

PushedAround,
Yeppers, When I was putting the tie downs on my car hauler, I used 4" channel welded to the frame, under the wood floor and bolted down through it, They have been on there for about 20 years now and still going strong, son in law now has the trailer, and he is still using the same tie downs. I would much rather over engineer something rather than under engineer it.
Frank

Good morning campers!
The D-Rings in my Toy Hauler are anchored to metal cross bars on two bolts of one side of the D-Ring and a huge backer washer that covers the other two bolts. Supposedly good for 3k but I sure wouldn't count on it. My race car trailer is done the same way.
The floor is made up of 3/4" OSB (I hate that stuff)...

Food for thought if you have not already done so. Find the limits on your landing gear legs and paint red stripes on them so you don't screw up like I did and break things by trying to over extend the legs...

I have a blog entry on the Ford Trucks forum that I will share with you if you want to look at more...
