Hey Ken. I was great to meet you and your wife. Hopefully our paths will cross again. I have often thought it would be a neat project to gut and redo a fiberglass trailer. But to gut one, then cut it in half and add a piece to the frame and body and put on a second axle - amazing. Your result is outstanding!

Well, you must be done by now and looking for something else to do. I just have a tiny 1300 trill with a couple FG repairs needed. Come on down! LOL No seriously. AMAZING! Lucky wife with such a handy guy and such incredible woodworking skills! Soooooo jealous!

Thumbs up

Congratulations on a job well done, Ken. It was a huge project to begin with, but you have a unique trailer now. I also have a B17 and I'm looking forward to replacing the Bigfoot decal set on my trailer. The graphics on yours is magnificent, and gives me ideas.

Yves.

Beautiful work. In the late 70s, I helped put an extra 6' smack in the middle of a 38' fiberglass center cockpit ketch. What a mess!!! We always said it would be the end if the owner encountered a sea of acetone.

I'm always interested in effects of refurb on curb weight. Most of us are aware of axle ratings and stingy about tow cap. and mileage, so avoid the really weighty blng (yes, I have seen granite countertop in a small trailer!) but the little bits and pieces that make it just that much stronger and that much easier and that much prettier all add up. I wish you could give us the figures on weight per linear foot for the short version and the long. My guess, based mainly on looking at the pix of cabinetry, bedframe, is that you're doing your best to minimize the porking up.

This is Ken H. I have been away for some time and require assistance in logging back into the system. My original email account is no longer active and I don't have my password. Could someone advise how to go about changing my password and email address on the system so I can get back in.

Thanks.

I reported this to the Moderating staff. There is only one Administrator that works the "help desk", who is very busy.

Just like to say thanks to Donna, Frederick and Mary for helping me get set up again. You know what they say, it is hard to find good help. Especially when your time is volunteered.
Thanks again for making this a awesome website.
Ken





P.S. Wet weight of trailer turned out to be 4,600 lbs

Awning rail mod

Just small adjustment to my awning rail I was tired of getting rained on. It used of stop right at the edge of my door. But now it extends about a foot past, helps keep my floor dry
