Sharon you were so right. The devil was in the details. Campable to finish was about 25 hrs. I thought it would be the next day. Thanks again.

Great Job Larry and as my wife keeps reminding me, a name is good only when they're happy with it. The funny thing is you didn't hit my question and that was: How does your wife like it?? Great job on it bud :applause: :applause:

Cliff :thumbsup:
In God we trust, shoot the rest and he will sort out!

Like any house the teardrop is never really finished. Here are some new pics.

I saw this on some other build and had to have it. An old metal Coleman cooler mounted on the tongue. I scored this one at afleamarket for $5. it was rusty but whole for the most part. I have repainted metal, but it was red. I also painted all the handles, they were to rusty to save the way they were.

Coleman lanterns fit in there perfectly. One could also fit a 425 stove. Very cool.

I also added the v style graphics to the front and back. Notice the shef hanging brackets on the side. When I get to camp I just plug in the hanger brackets and I have a place to hang a lantern or put up two 12x27 shelves.

I took out the regular bulbs on the porch lights and put in amber bulbs. I dont know why or if it is better somehow. I just thought is was cool.

I also fished the Food Porn wallpaper in the galley area.

I also bought a Coleman fold able water jug for the sink.

I love the wallpaper!

In the old days we used to use amber porch lights because they attract less bugs.
