A long way from completion but we now have a 19' 'plug' to work with!

The last month has been spent chopping and modifying an old 17' mold to shape it into the 19'.

Over the next two months, this 'plug' will be refined to the point where we can take the molds off for production.

Hey, what's that wheel on the front for? (I'm assuming it's really on the wall of the shed behind it.)

I was hoping no one would notice the wheels! I needed some quick anchors mounted so we could pull the unit out of the mold and they were just calling out to me!!!

It's OK Reace. Seeing as it's a dual-axle trailer that extra wheel on the front -- a fifth wheel -- makes perfect sense.

Do you have a projected time line for all your new models? I understand that projected dates would be VERY tentative.

Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right.
