I'll be rolling through Destin in couple of weeks in my old's cool rig, if you are close by, I'd like to stop by and say "high!"

I have some nylon material that I bought cheap at fabric store that was going out of business. I'm not sure if it would be good or not. Just playing around to see how much I have:



The screwdrivers are sitting there because I bought some stainless fasteners to hold the treated deck down, but I only bought half of the amount I needed. DOH! So this is what it's like to get older... ;)

Do the hose test to see if it's coated and waterproof. You can treat it yourself if it's not, but it would be nice if it is...

Along the same lines, has anyone considered a trailer from lets go aero?

I've been looking for a small travel trailer to pull behind my outback. This is a great thread for options.

Well there are cheap tents and there are good tents. I don't know if that one is a good tent but I've paid a bunch more for tents that were worth the money to me anyway.

my little trailer doing it's best impression of a new age covered wagon:



I added some grommets to the nylon material and used those bungie ball things to attach it to the rails of the trailer. Now to cover the front of the trailer...
