Not much this weekend, but did get the interior cabinet face cut out. It will have two fold down doors for table space as needed with slam latches to hold shut. The uppers will be nothing more then cubbies' for Misc stuff. I have switches going into the center section for lights and other things that I may want future power for.


Shiny things did come last week though! Picked up an Engel fridge freezer!!!! I have been wanting one of these FOREVER! No more soggy food....
Happy Monday!

Parts keep arriving. I'm going with a Sierra Tan pre-painted aluminum for the sides and mill on top/galley.

Happy Monday everyone. Made some great progress this weekend. Finished the wiring to the front cabin, insulated the roof and front, and cut the skin for the sides of the trailer. It doesn't show well in the pic but the color I have chosen is similar to the current Toyota tan that is on the new Tacomas.
More to come this week as I have run out of time to hit my delivery date on this so we can hit the road for our first camping trip, so long nights are in my future!

Have a great week!
