It’s certainly a little off, but good enough for a trailer.

Are you kidding? That wiring looks better than 98% of the wiring I come in contact with in cars and boats. You would absolutely not believe some of the rats nest style messes I find in boats.

I probably won't be able to do much else after I get he awning and Vent fan in, before the trip next week. But it's is a decent enough of a spot to take. I'm pretty happy with all the power and wiring. The windows make a huge difference.

That looks awesome.  I really want to see a floor.  I realize that’s not priority but that’s what I’m really waiting for.

The floor should happen right after I get back from the trip. I’m really looking forward to it too!

Got a couple things done before it got too hot today.

Awning and small folding table.

How does that folding table operate?  Does it use the folding brackets that always coming across my news feed from Amazon?  I put two of them on my smoker so I have a place to wrap my meat in foil but it’s still easy to store and not take up room.  I also have a similar table in my work trailer that I’ve missed dearly every time my trailer is in for service and I need to use a different trailer.  My tables don’t look as nice as yours.  Hell, my work table is a door cut in half.

Exactly.  I just grabbed some of those brackets from Amazon and the top is a marketplace find for $10. I wouldn’t put a ton of weight on it, but it will easily hold 30lbs or so.

Thanks JP! It’s taken waaayyy longer than I planned, but it’s coming along pretty well.

I really hope to get the roof fan in tomorrow and then I’m going to fab up some sorta ghetto hitch to put the back rack on the back of it.

The last two items that I needed to do before the trip are done, so anything else I get done will be gravy.

Vent fan installed finally. It sure moves a ton of air, but I will see if I need to swap for a AC unit of some kind down the road. I just quickly screwed the light back in place so it could be used for now.



Next up is a hitch in the back to hold a bike rack. It’s a little redneck, but I put the rack in and hung off of it with movement at all. It should be pretty solid, but the trip will be the acid test, lol.

So I didn’t see the underneath picture on Facebook. I was wondering how you secured that hitch.  I like it.

You wouldn't want to "pull" anything with it (not what it's made for obviously), but I did add some bracing on the backside of that rear plate as well. I hung on the bike rack like a monkey and it was really solid. All the hitch stuff was just laying around in the garage, so it was all but free.
