Well I said 3 months and that is close. I had to have a plan. Once I got the plan almost worked out ..............notice the almost in there, I think I started getting wood, and taking back messed up wood and find more wood.

Truth is I spent a lot of time reading here, and playing here and well there was winter. 8) Good excuse huh! :lol:

I don't live in a spot where I could build a trailer nor do I have the free time. I did however purchase one to tide me over until I get the chance to build our own.

I said 3 I think it was closer to 6. For no reason except I had no time to build anything until 2 weeks before we had to leave. Started cutting steel while I was finishing up a job, had frame built and painted in 3 days, the rest of the trailer in the following 10 days. We left on schedule but I was screwing down the countertop an hour before we left!! :roll: :lol:

It actually took about ten months. I'm still working on some of the exact design details. But that is part of the fun for me. I know this will be one of a kind.
