Hey Gordon, Great minds think alike, we have thought about an awning of sorts for the rear, if I can find it I'll post it. It is an awning that comes from inside to make a room on the door, but can't be used with door closed so couldn't put the bikes under. the bikes could fit under the goose neck sideways, I can almost walk under. In that case I think something could be made to enclose the front.

I was thinking about an outside awning on the rear. Then the door could be open or closed. Closed it would be for the bikes. Door open - you have a covered deck. (wonder about those awnings you can purchase from Home Depot or Lowes that fit on the side of the house. They come in electric and manual and do not use braces.)


Enclosing the front (often called a garage when enclosed) is fairly simple. Many of the folks in our park have vinyl built with grommets that attach around the front. Easy to put on and take off. Not for overnights but easy enough if staying for a few days to set it up.

I have seen some awnings (usually on high end MH) that come in and out without braces, I'm not sure how they mount.

Terry,
Nice looking floor, I agree with the light colored walls and cabinets with the dark floor. Look at the truck camper awnings, some of them have the awnings across the back, so that the doorway is covered by the awning. The no side support awnings have scissor brackets that fold up when the awning closes and expand when extended. I've heard good and bad from those that have them, so I can't give you an educated answer on them.
I agree with Gordon that you want the most awning that you can have. The 2 awnings are a great idea to get the full length without the middle support.
Frank

Ok guys you've convinced me, two awnings on the side it is . Frank, I'll have to look at TC's I just was looking for TH rear awnings and there's not what I can really use in my application. We got our samples today for the ceiling panels and the window cornice's, we are going with a soft tan material for the ceiling. We will cover the luan with this material then install the completed panel.

Terry, here's a link for Girard Awnings. Couple of videos there that will help answer your question, I think.

Good Morning, Ken thanks for the link!! . thats the type I was thinking of just didn't find it. I will shoot them an email to see if I can use that on the rear. Interesting that they can mount on the roof.

Thanks Pete, I will check out all these company's, I need all the help I can get sometimes, not much on this TH is what you can call "stock", so all the options is the best.

Started today on the wiring, I am using the main harness from the donor FT. It will give me a starting place then add what I need from there. Looks interesting doesn't it?

Interesting? Wow! That is a understatement! I am not well versed in the wire'ng thing. I would have to call in the pro's! Having the wire'ng from the donor should help so much, though! At least you got it weather tight and can do this winter, which is nice. The floor turned out very nice Terry! Rail!

Terry and Eleanor,

Thanks for posting pictures of your work. This is a great thread. Like many others here, I am jealous of your skills and I love the "just build it" mentality on display here.

I bought a toyhauler and struggled a little with how the TV system worked - a friend with RV experience finally told me how to cut off the antenna booster. I have this diagram from the research I did. Hope this helps you some.



Keep up the good work.

Good Morning All, Rail, just putting the floor in makes it look so much better, I think it will start to come together now. I start a heater in the am, eat breakfast by then its warm enough to work inside. Andy, thanks for the diagram things like that always helps, I'm very visual, if I "see" something it usually sticks with me, (that can be a curse as well) I have little diagrams all over.
