    Next week! How can you wait that long? I could pull it out to you. The factory is about 15 miles from my house!

    Can you promise no ice covered roads between here and there?

    Congrats on your choice. You'll love it. Happy Camping!

    There might be a few ice covered roads,but not too many...,but it left your neck of the woods yesterday or the day before.
    I am having a little trouble waiting.

    Plenty big. I wold have preferred it. Got the king because that was the demo model he had sitting there. Not bad, but the extra weight is not necessary, and it does take an extra minute to pull it out.

    I am so tempted to take mine hunting with me tomorrow! Not to sleep in as I have a place to stay. But, to haul all my stuff in! Have a shortage of vehicles with my older son needing my Jeep next week to get to school and work, and my wife has to work also. Normally I take my bike when we need a 3rd vehicle, but need to carry lots of gear hunting with my younger son.

    I know the trip up tomorrow would be fine. But ... the past 4 years have had major snow storms the day we come back. If I take the bike, that will ensure this is the 5th year in a row for that to happen!

    Well...since you asked
    My power supply is a Die Hard jump starter.
    I originally bought this for powering my CPAP when we started tenting.
    Since it it also has an inverter,and air compressor,light as well as a decent 12 volt power supply I thought it would be a good fit.It powered my CPAP for three nights without recharging.
    Pictured is the left rear corner of the trailer
    I wired the power outlet to the fuse block and will use the double male cord to the power outlet.
    I also wired the power from the tow vehicle to the fuse block.The power supply will recharge when the tow vehicle is running.I also have the 110v recharger if we are at a place with 110
    The switch is wired to the outlet that will power my CPAP so I can turn it off with just lifting the lid enough to hit the switch


    This is the power outlet in the left front corner that will power my CPAP.I used JB weld to secure it.


    I cut this hole in the left front and will run my CPAP hose through it when we are setting up and remove it when we are tearing down.


    I ran power to the inside along side the wires that go to the tail lights in the right rear corner


    I use rope lighting,and I think I will get another for the Add a Room


    and put a switch just inside the door


    Every decent project has to have one good screw up
    I mounted this and cut a hole and plugged it into the power supply knowing that I would have to remove the plug when ever I opened it up.I didn't stop to think that the screws would go all the way through and keep me from opening the cargo areaI'll figure another way to mount it!

    Added a lock since the wife thinks it will keep people from stealing our stuff
    I think it's useless,but she's happy!


    and we picked up some carpet at Home Depot,and will probably use the same in the sleeping area


    I've also ordered some vinyl pinstriping that will match the pinstriping on the bike


    Was planning to go test it out this weekend,but it was raining pretty good.
    It's still in the garage,maybe we will sleep in it there!
