How can you abandon the North Country! You traitor!!!! Hahaha. Who knows, I might call you at some point. Ester says she'll help too. She's worked on trailers in general. Got a Multi-Max tool and am ready to rock next mild spell we get.

Have fun

Mild weather, and so day 4 of working on the gutting. Didn't have a lot of time, but I did get the furnace out. http://myqualityday.blogspot.com/201...es.htmlhttp://

Finally back to working on the trailer. It's becoming rather overwhelming, as I'm sure most of you know. Day 3 of actual work- continuing the demolition

Day 5- cardboard and digital mockup and a lot of philosophy of why I'm doing what I'm doing, if anyone cares.

Joan,
I enjoyed reading your posts and blog updates just now. Enough pictures to complement your writing, and a good testimony to reading & planning & mocking-up before diving in!
I liked, too, your focus on utility & getting the most bang for the buck.
Best of luck to you, as your build continues!
Gary

Thank you Gary! I have one more day off before another work week. I think I'm going to tackle patching one of the holes. Then again, the lawnmower has a flat tire

Joan,

Way to go! Fiberglass repair work puts a lot of people off, but you did a nice job there.....and a nice job of describing it step-by-step on your blog.

I found Fiberglass Dave's lengthy thread helpful when I was starting the fiberglass repairs on my own U-Haul. Gonna have to do some more of them soon, when I move the battery location more mid-ship, but it's not the big mystery that it once was.

keepin' on...
Gary

Thanks, Gary

I'm on page 13 of the Fiberglass thread here. Gonna read it all, but this forum tends to lock up my browser so I have to reload after every few pages. Back to work today. Will see how much time I have for trailer fun.

I did get that mower wheel off, too. Will drop it off this morning to be fixed.

Did some shopping- one problem all fixed, one success within budget. A brainstorm to fix a design annoyance
