Another picture showing a little more detail. I'll wait until warmer weather to post pictures of the finished interior. There is only a little bit of trim work left to do on the inside.

I find it interesting how it came out exactly like I planned. Here is the original SketchUp drawing from March of 2012. (also in my signature line)

To say that I am pleased is an understatement. I have four trips planned so far in 2016, and probably several weekend getaways as there are three state parks with great camping all less than an hour's drive from my home.

Happy New Year!

Thanks for the kind words KC, Sharon, Dale and Aggie.

Let me take this opportunity to plug someone. I purchased for myself the coat hanger for the interior of my trailer. It is cast iron, painted brown to imitate rust I guess. It is really cool. I purchased it from http://www.ironcooker.com/. I happen to have the owner as a facebook friend. Here is a picture of it.

Ok, enough with the plug.

Hey, I was wondering how the slide out kitchen was working for you? I have a similar setup, but in the building process now and have been torn between a slide out kitchen like yours or a completely removable chuck box and table setup. Also do you like how your wheel slides worked out? Thanks.

The wheels worked great, the legs were a little bit of a pain, but worked well enough. I used metal poles going through sleeves with thumb screws to tighten the legs. Each leg was independant so it made it real easy to get the kitchen level on unlevel ground. I should have used thumb screws with larger grips because they were a little bit of a pain to tighten and untighten.
