We'd like to replace the Teardrop American logo on the side of our trailer. Do any of you have a picture of the logo?

Gregg M., you actually HAD the logo on the side of your trailer before the redo. Do you have a better picture of it? Was it a plate? A sticker? Painted on?

That's a good looking setup. It fits good with the Prius.

It doesn't look as good now as it did a couple of weeks ago. I've really been working at it. I'm about ready to paint.

I added the curtains to the windows.



I don't remember who it was who recommended that trailer curtains should be lined so they look good from the inside AND out, but thank you.

Are your awnings water repellent or waterproof so you could leave them up (out?) in case of rain?

No, I didn't do any waterproofing treatments on the canvas. More importantly, I didn't design the awning to prevent water from coming in. I actually considered it. We would have had to have the snaps on the other side of the door to rain proof it, which would have made them MUCH more visible when not in use.

Our thought was that the awnings were for changing clothes and maybe we'd leave them up for extra ventilation on hot summer trips. If it's raining, we'll be shutting up those doors nice and tight.

I finished a bunch of things; shelving, sink drainage, door & galley latches, etc. I talked about a lot of it here:

Pick Me! Teardrop American Outbacker Restoration: Galley Shelves, Sink Drainage and Camping

We also took it camping on its maiden voyage last weekend to Utah Lake. I talked about it here:

Starling Travel: Teardrop Camping at Utah Lake State Park

I ran into a SNAFU with the awnings because of the wind.



I guess I need to add some weights and a few more snaps!
