Good Morning, Frank, Thanks! good to be doing something, hate the down time. Lloyd, maybe if everybody gets a fan and turns it towards the north.......... Bobby, I have a tendency to build a little overboard, but I figured I had the suspension anyway so why not. I'm just getting to use the Simadre cutter It works very well right now, as well as my Snap On model we had, it is supposed to have German technology so we will see how it holds up. well going to be 40* today and tomorrow, but rain tomorrow then going back to the 20's.

Looking good! What model of plasmas did you go with? The prices on them are really good compared to any big name brand.

Terry,

I turned on the fan, it should be warmer tomorrow. Unfortunatly, it pushed the rain your way before I got her shut down!

Side looks good,,, great actually!

Good Morning, smcox1, I bought a Simadre 50R, so far its been working good, better actually then I thought, I had read a few reviews and they all were good so we'll see. MK, Thanks! Lloyd, Thanks for the warm weather, you could have left the rain somewhere else though . rained pretty hard last night now its snowing, temps are right at 32*. Well with IRV2 shutting down yesterday I couldn't post any pics last night, we got the left side and the rear hung.

Well the rain and snow quit for about an hr. sooo me being me ran out and set up and cut the back half of the deck, Plasma cutter worked great took maybe 10 minutes of actually cutting and that was moving the cut guide. Me and Eleanor set it up on the back so I can mark out the two corners and get it on.

Nice job Terry. The Tot'r is looking good. That piece of plate will make a nice cover, but where will you store it when the TH is hooked up, and won't it be awfully heavy for you to handle? I'm sure you have thought of this, but just in case.
Frank

Frank, yup I thought about that afterwards, I might make one that I can collapse, be nice to be able to cover the air bags, ( they do make a soft cover for them but that's too easy .

Terry,
I know what you mean about doing it the easy way. Maybe one made out of sheetmetal, will be easy to handle and you could use piano hinges to let it fold.

On the flip side it would be great to have a solid deck over the 5 wheel if you wanted to carry something on it. (Perhaps that lift of plywood?)

Maybe something that slides under the deck in front?

Okay I'm going to try this again, I didn't save my post and it went poof. Frank, I've seen a cover somewhere that folded I'll have to look around again, if it was light and folded it would be easy to store. Gordon, I have thought about another section that would go over the entire back section that dips down, it could be installed if I was going without the 5er. It would give me a deck, I am having a Bedliner material put on (like Rhino Liner) when its done so it won't be slippery. Working on the steps now, they will pull out from the side.

Terry,

I hope Eleanor retires when you are done with this because I don't know what you are going to do with yourself when you are done with all your toys. Maybe enjoy them together.

Going to be sweet though. Lynne
