Another Great Day

Bolted on roof beams and made plywood roof rafters. The flat portion of the roof will be where the solar panels go.

That looks fantastic. You are really taking it to the next level. Is the goal to have it ready for Burning Man THIS YEAR? You're really creative and talented. Can't wait to see your continued progress. Its going to be fun from here on out.

Thanks Guys, The camo job came with the trailer. I bought it from a nice young cowboy gutted out for $600 bucks. When I have the roof completed, I plan to paint it brown and outline fake wood planks. My goal is to have it for Burning Man and perhaps about a month sooner. My wife, 10 your old daughter and I look forward to taking it to Utah and volunteer at the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.

That's looking awesome. I can't wait to see the finished paint job. Just put a new axle and wheels on mine today. Still lots to do to get it ready for T.T.I.T.D. (That Thing In The Desert, as a friend of mine calls it)
Camping with a bunch of friends, so won't be in kidsville, but definitely want to check it out with my little Lucia. Maybe get involved with one of the events or something.

I was just wondering how it was coming along too. It's really at the stage where it finally comes together. Love it. Keep posting updated pix as you continue your progress.
