MOVING a TOO-TALL cramper into the TOO-SHORT garage!

When it comes to engineering, my husband Simon is a yumpin yeenyus! In our prior home, our 1997 16ft Casita wintered in the woods under a Casita cover - not the best of situations. But we'd recently moved into a home with a two-car garage, and we wanted to winter "CAMP RUN.A.MUK" under its roof... only trouble was, the garage door was too short and letting some air out of the Casita tires was not going to sufficiently reduce the cramper's height.

So Simon visited our local Island Recycled center and found a pair of small, hard tires, switching them out. Voila! With just a hair's tolerance to spare, the cramper rolled nicely into the garage, where it will stay dry all winter.

Here's the major motion picture:

They look like wheels off a fork lift, but that's just a guess.

Yes, I believe my husband said that at the Recycle Center they thought the small, solid wheels came from a fork lift. Good guess!
