Good Morning, Sam I've been watching the news on Watertown/Buffalo area, not good for them for sure. Prayers all around for them, I will not complain about my weather anymore. Rail, I grew up in a long line of loggers, (I didn't follow them) but I did the trucking for yrs, sometimes pushed snow over the grill on my triaxle straight job, a long as I could get close they would push/pull me with two skidders to get out, don't miss that at all!! Will be working on the cabinets, going to put the floors down this weekend, thats going to be really good.

HH, yep, actually my DW has installed many of these floors in our S&B, her mothers and our sons house, so I will help her, (I know when to step back) .

Good Morning All, Rail, you called it, the TV gets called the caddy now here. As for the TH I figured I would have to keep pictures in case I got pulled over, the cop wouldn't believe it was a 1973!!

Well I started on the floor, (don't tell DW she usually does the floor). I also installed the awning rail, it warmed up to 28 degs so I got that done yesterday. Maybe install the awning this weekend, supposed to warm up to 48 degs (heat wave) by sunday.

Finished the floor in the coach area, now on to the garage . Here's a pic of the awning rail, hopefully next time you see it it will have an awning on it.

Hi Gordon, Thanks, DW likes a dark floor I think it will go good with the lighter cabinets and walls. I'm going to put a 16ft awning, the rest is going to be drip rail.

I agree with Eleanor. The dark floor will make the lighter cabinets look good (or is it the other way around?).

I would recommend you put the longest awning you can put on without a center support. If not put two single awnings on. The center support can be a PITA. The more awning the better - as if you have enough you will have a place to keep the bikes out of the rain, etc and lots of room for the lounge chairs, etc.

Gordon, that might be a good idea, (putting two awnings) that way one could be dedicated for the bikes.

IMO you cannot have too much awning. The 5er has a 14'. Adequate but not desireable. We always parked the bikes with covers.

The coach has two awnings. We can only open one as our parking spot has large ficus trees that prevent us from opening the rear awning. The bikes will still be under a bike cover.

My suggestion would be to have two awnings that cover the entire side of the TH. May sound excessive but you will find when you start snow birding there will be days when you will be sitting out and having the option of sitting in the front to enjoy the morning sun or moving to the back to enjoy a siesta will be appreciated. Those days the bikes may just have to sit by themselves in the open air.

Outside of the box. What would happen if you were able to put an awning at the back end over the door? 8' wide! Not practical as it would interfere with the tail lights and would not be able to be used in most campgrounds. But . . . it would provide a spot to park the bikes behind the trailer. If you put sides on the awning it would build a garage for the bikes leaving the entire side for your camping enjoyment. As mentioned not very practical but something to bandy about.
