I got lucky today.
A friend of mine bought an old mid 60's aluminum tent trailer. It was pretty beat up, and leaked at every rivet. His intention for the trailer is to transform it into a hauler for his skidoos and atv's. So he told me to come over and salvage anything I wanted.
Like I said, this thing was OLD, USED and ABUSED and not much there until I looked under one of the seats. An awning
with all 3 poles. It measuerd about 14 feet, so a little big, but I figured I could make it work, not to mention it was in really good shape! I then drilled out the riviets holding the aluminum railing to the trailer.
After cutting the railing and fastening it to the boler
, and buying a few tent ropes for $5 at CDN Tire, taa daa, I know have an awning
for the TANK.
I'm almost completed the renovation
. I just finished painting
the inside with kitchen/bath paint
. 3 coats and wow, what a difference!!
Also at CDN Tire I was going to buy two new dome lights
for inside as my lenses were cracked. The had the square ones for 9.99 each. I then ventured into the marine section and found a 12 volt, 12 super white LED light
for 14.99, so I picked up two of those instead. Twice the brightness, 1/10 of the power....nice!!
By next Tuesday the TANK should be ready to roll as it's 1st trip will be on the long weekend!
