Hale Creek camping with the Trillium Vid

YouTube - Hale Creek with The Trillium

Slow and low.....my 3" lift wasn't enough, still scraped and bumped.

The cushions were on the floor, but the cupboard doors stayed closed. I've rigged up a bungee cord that goes from behind the cook top and down to below the fridge keeping the cooktop elements from flying off and the fridge door closed. I learned a lot about packing from last years experience:

I leave my table down and put all the extra cushion and extra stuff there.

Scamp recommends traveling with the table down as we always did because we left the bed set up. We do the same with the 5er and pack underneath the table being carefull on what goes where so we don't rub the fiberglass. After moving a whole house 7 times, five on our own, you learn how to pack.

If I leave the table down it ends up on the floor. It hops a bit but stays put if I leave it up.

Here's how I keep the cook top and fridge door from flying all over the place: (I still have to build a drawer for above the fridge)

My ice box has a pin that keeps it shut, the stove top stays in place but I take the steel grates off and put them in the dish drain.

My tables attached to the wall by a hanging device. We can't do as much with our 5er as we did with the 13' and the Tundra as far as tight places. And I can tell you we put the 13' in some pretty tight places.

Now THIS is my idea of camping! I recognize the roads and the interior pictures...
"Favorite" incident I ever had on a road like that was when my door blew open and I had to walk back and collect my possessions

That poor trailer was probably saying, "I'm too old for this stuff"- but fantastic camp site.

That's me and my Kia/ Trillium combo that they're hooking the tow line up to when they're stuck in the river in the last scene
That reminds me: I must remember to post my pontoon design in the trailer mods section of the forum.......
