Good Morning All;
We are finally getting a bit of moisture here. We have had about a 1/4 inch so far and is supposed to have more moisture until noon. Then predicted for showers until Thursday.

The arch is still standing. Test run done. No one was hurt during the event. Have walked under it several times but doubt I will try swinging on it. Thought I would throw in a picture. No picture - did not happen!

All that is left is to move a half wine barrel under it for plants.

Terry is making progress at a rapid rate. Hard to keep up with it. Nice to see the pictures.

Our 5er has a full width closet across the front. We are able to carry far more clothes than we need or use. However we had clothing for every situation we could possibly run into. Closet space in the coach is slightly smaller but we are still prepared.

The bed in the 5er is on a slide on the street side which leaves the front for the closet. I built some shelves in it besides the hang ups so a lot of stuff could be stored. Still with everything loaded the weight on the pin is 2645.

Which brings a thought to the amount of weight Terry will generate with the two Harleys loaded. I suspect that he might be quite light. Should not be an issue with the triple axle but something to keep in the back of ones mind.

Frank - coming west sooner rather than later is better IMO. If you dont like it you can always head back east. Lots of pretty country to see out here.

Have a great day everyone.

Good Morning, Drizzling here again this morning, we've got around 2" so far. Rail, thanks on the door, its gotta get painted it sticks out like a sore thumb. Frank, we have more closets in other areas of the TH so I think we will be ok. Gordon, all kidding aside the arch looks great, always liked that look, My grandparents lived in a Spanish style house that was all arches, seemed like everywhere. I thought about my pin weight might be light but with the bath up front, battery bank and propane plus there is room under the front where I could put another water tank. Oh and most of the solar panels are up front.

Course it might take me a few stops to get it to you. But, I'll keep it nice.

I could use the vacation!
Why, that's mighty kind of you Curtis. FLA to WA is a long trip, are you sure?

Knowing Curtis I'm sure you are correct.

Sure Jay! I'm serious. I have done that trip before. On bikes, motor home and by pickup.

As long as don't have to rush straight through it would be a good trip to do. Lots of friends between start and finish I could swing by. Some real nice camping all good the way. I've over to see some of my favorites again.

6 years ago I rode my KLR to Canada and back from Texas with 4 other guy on their KLRs. So to do it on my new big Yamaha would be a breeze.

Good Afternoon, Well, I have another section of wall up more wires put away, and two more cabinets installed, as Frank would say one more thing cked off.

I had to turn my laptop on it's side again but those pics of the progress are starting to show the end of that job won't be too long now.

You might not be back up to your old pace but you're plugging those pieces together real quick ,it's all coming together nicely .

Your parts pile must be getting smaller too !

We're all staying tuned for the exciting conclusion !

Terry - that corner is gorgeous.

It will be one of the most used cabinets and counter tops in the trailer IMO. Cel phones, keys, etc.

Terry,
Again, I have to side with Gordon on that cabinet and counter top. I have no doubt that you know how much closet space that you will need. It is looking better each picture we see.

Good Evening, Thanks guys, Popeye, tell me how to turn my pics , when I have to turn the camera, (phone) sideways to get full length the pics on the forum are sideways, (only on the forum). As my parts pile gets smaller I can see inside my garage again . Gordon, I made the cabinet the same height ect. as the kitchen cabs. so it looks like its connected, I am replacing the counter top with the same as all the others, I also added a 120 volt outlet and 12 volt power there. The back splash will also match. Frank, thanks, did you make it to Ohio? Tomorrow, its walls in the bedroom. Have a great night all.

Yes Terry, I am sitting in Ohio( freezing by the way) well not really, but it was only 71* for a high, and that has been close to the lows for the last couple of months. I have a rant over on "Gooodmorning" that tells about my trip up today, trip was non-eventful, it was when I got to the campground that the fireworks happened.
If you think you are light on the pin, you better add that extra water tan now, with the weight of the 2 bikes in the back, you will definitely be light, although with your TV, i don't think you will have any problem with the trailer trying to lead the TV.
Frank

Key word is phone! And they have the nerve to call those things "smartphones"!

Try loading the pics to your computer and use that browser to post to the forums,,,,,check to see if they are sideways first and right them if not.

Frank, yup I read Good Morning after I had posted here, glad all is well on the trip, crazy about the campsite thro. When the TH is done one of the first trips will be to a Cat Scale to look at my axle and pin weights, plus the total trailer weight, be interesting to see what it comes to.
