    Great. Just GREAT! Harley colors. I already get enough sh*t fer ridin a Russian bike, now instead of, "Whatsa matter, can't buy American!?", I'm also gonna get, "Hey, why you flyin Harley colors on your tent, you ride a POS Ural!?"

    You Harley guys...

    A little tip:

    By placing a cheap, $30 camping kitchen over the trailer tongue, you achieve two goals. First is obvious, a small kitchen, complete with sink that drains into a Scepter water jug, and sideways mounted cooler, (or in our case, a Whynter 45 quart expedition refrigerator), so it can be opened facing whoever is cooking. Turning it 90 still allows access through the pass-through from inside, and presents a slightly less flat area for better wind resistance. Add a Coleman lantern and stove, and a water jug, and you've got everything you need.

    The second, and most important, is people won't trip over the tongue! (If they do, then they're also tripping over the kitchen counter, and are drunker than they should be!)

    Thanks. It worked really well. Forgot to mention, go to Walmart, Ebay, or Amazon app and search for trunk organizer. The blue one on the camp table was $20! Has two big compartments and stretch pockets on the ends. We use it as our kitchen pantry, pots, pans, dish & silverware in one side, dry and canned goods on the other.

    Added a Rocket Pump, (Valterra brand), to the cap of a Scepter 5 gallon plastic Jerry can. This will ride next to the fridge, and be filled at or near our destination so we're not carrying all that weight. I have a 2nd one that I'll paint black with Krylon Fusion paint. Fill it in the morning, set it in the sun all day, and w@$# up with hot water at night.

    Ausable Point campground, Peru NY. If you turn the sound up, you can hear the waves lapping against the wall. Best night's sleep in a long time for Barb & I.

    Ok, i found an oxygen tank mounting bracket years ago while buying a fire extinguisher for our Volvo Tgb111C camper project, (which we sadly had to sell).

    It fits our 6 lb Worthington propane tank, (also bought for the truck), perfectly so I mounted it on the tongue, and added a distribution post.

    Coleman lantern screws on top, and there's 2 connections for the Coleman stove, and a small hot water heater, (also bought for the truck).
