I wintered at the Turquoise Trail Campground in C C. They do have a "no working on your trailer" rule, but every time I've asked, "Hey would you mind if I did this and such to my trailer..." They've always been accommodating. I can't say enough nice things about the owners and their on site help. Great folks.
And while it is generally 10 degrees cooler up there than down in town it seems, I don't feel like imposing this major project on my neighbors, especially during this holiday week. I want to be able to work late once it's cooler and not bug anyone. And I'd love the be able to leave lumber and tools and parts all around outside the trailer and not have to keep worrying about appearances. I'd love to be able to stop half way through my top vent installation and not worry about leaving a hole in the top of my trailer overnight.
I found a garage like space, plenty of space for the trailer and tons of room around it. Very high ceilings like 30 feet! So it's actually not as hot in there during the day as you'd think for downtown Abq, it's got 110v plugs and a few floodlights, not great lighting
for the size space, but I can make it work. While being way on the other side of town it's close to where the woodshop I've used is and the place I've talked to about finishing (painting) my woodwork, lot's of hardware, tool, lumber shops around. There's a welder and machinist on premises, and the owner doesn't care if I work until 4:00am. I was on the fence, but the more I describe it, I think I should just go for it, I can move in tomorrow. $375 for a month, he can't do weekly unfortunately.
Get 'er done!
