Fabulous job ! What type finish did you use on the cedar ? Do you have something on your tow vehicle like mud flaps for additional protection ? It's o pretty, I would hate to see it get dirty.

Wondering when someone would notice that Jim
Right now it is acting as a temporary spacer. I installed the "A" frame jack and knowing it would hang to low I bought the Jack-E-Up so I could remove the jack during travel, but the jack will not work with a wheel attached. It becomes unstable. By reversing it and using the base as a spacer it raises the jack enough that there are no clearance problems. Considering the cost I will be building a proper spacer and will be selling this Jack-E-Up.

The finish is 3 coats of Sikkens Cetol 1. Yes I use Rock Tamers on the back of my 4Runner which protects the front of the trailer as much as possible.

That piece of art is much to beautiful to be on the outside of any trailer. WOW!

You might consider putting out a catalog of storage units make on a custom basis. Get a website and many orders would follow!

Nice stuff!!

A perfect fit with your beautifully crafted Boler. What all do you keep in it besides the tank?

Quite inspirational.

WOW all I can say is THANK YOU all for your comments, I never expected it.
As requested here are some interior shots, they include the propane tank and the contoured edge for the lid to seal against.

I also designed a grey water system for the Boler, the sink drains into the blue 5 gallon container. Under the trailer is a "T" with a drain valve that connects to a 5/8" hose for draining the tank.

What a wonderful addition to the camper! I like the looks of it and it inspires me to make a shameful copy of the basic idea.
Thanks for the pictures.
