Enjoy .
Let me just say wow, I'm impressed by his dedication and it looks like it came out nice. I wonder what it weighs, did he ever get it weighed...[here's a nickle...]?

And that's some damn fine woodwork.

OK, just got back from a tiny camper romp:

Vaughn Lake above the Flat Tops - nice quiet place


They run sheep up there - if you look close you see the Great Pyr. that guards this flock, no we did NOT pet him....


Wife had been asking me for years to go to Dinosaur, so we did that. Carnegie Quarry:


Rock art on the self guided walk, well worth the time, as is the homestead at the end.


The wife likes Telluride, and Woods Lake campground is less than an hour away and has nice services and big sites:


Another place we had not been: Mesa Verde - now that place is sort of scary in a way:




Sadly, the trip was right in the heart of the monsoon, we got one really nice day up on Divide Road above Nucla, but otherwise a lot of rain, we spent two nights out of nine in motels, then cut the trip short a day as the rain looked like it was going to go unabated for another week.

We plan a trip after the monsoon is over - early Sept. we saw lots of good place to go back to.

I managed to impress the wife.

I like your trailer - I am going to be doing something similar in a 20ft tandem axle version, so I can haul my rhino or my miata in it. Where did you get the fold down beds and counter?

I'm just kind of popping in and out of this thread, so forgive me if it's been mentioned already, but this looks like it might be of interest to some here.

Seems like the tongue weight on that is a lot higher that it needs to be.
