Looks great. Are you an experienced RV camper or new to this?

We are new travel trailer owners. What appealed to us was the light weight and flexibility. Good way to start.

Thanks!

I'll post some more photos. We're still experimenting with the layout. The modular thing is cool.

We did our maiden voyage to the local beach. Was fun. We're learning about our trailer. We tried a couple of configurations.

Here's some photos. Enjoy.





As you can see we were right off Hwy 101. Lots of people walking up and down. So many people stopped and commented on how cute / cool the trailer is. We showed some the interior.







Of course the interior is all square 20" x 20" boxes with storage.



We had 4 made with cutouts for easy access. Our two chihuahua's loved them and crawled inside and slept.



We added on the 'concession window' with screen as well as a screen for the back hatch.





See you out there!

Cheers,
Mark

Good to see that hatch screen. It is something I advocated for, and would want if I were buying a HC. But it doesn't look like it's all screen material; what is the opaque-looking lower part made of? My thought was how great it would be to raise the hatch and be able to look out that entire opening at the scenery, but it appears that their screen blocks the view below a certain level?

Yes. The lower part is a privacy screen so you can lie down without feeling exposed. it's quite nice.

Thanks for sharing. What a great idea for a modification to accommodate your dogs! I also wonder if a tent extension for the back hatch would make sense to give you additional room.

I Googled "SUV tents" and "tent extension for hatchback" and came up with this idea: SUV Tent | Tents For SUVs | Van Tent

That's what you need to pack when the in-laws want to camp with you!
