A few years ago my boss gifted us a bulldog bottle opener , and when we sold the teardrop I forgot to remove it.
Last weekend I bought some corona's since bud wasn't available and didn't have a bottle opener .
That's not gonna happen again. I found another.
Looking for a spot I decided outside was best. Mounted to the rear of the fender for quick access. Also added some small kubbies for items like sunscreen, bugspray ect.

Modstock, Howdy;

Shame on you! There's always an opener nearby;

I've been packing one of those bulldogs around for years, now I know what to do with it.

Hank :lol:
I'll be done when I'm finished, if that's not fast enough, take a number.

Just got back from a trip.
1st night Just after arriving, a massive thunderstorm hit. Lots of lightning and heavy rain. Thunder loud enough it shook the trailer.
Rest of the weekend was great and awesome fishing .

I really hate to do this but..... I may move the mudflaps back to the bumper.
I've ripped the driver's side off twice.
Last time I moved up the flaps 1.5" but still got caught behind the tire backing up.
Probably can use some shorter flaps behind the tire and large flaps under the bumper.
We'll see.

This was before I moved em up 1.5"
It usually happens when backing up in a hole or small hill.

Here's our last trip before it got super cold.

Some of the best fishing we've had in a long time.

Part 2 of Scofield. Had such a good time, we came back 2 weeks later.

Well, it's winter camping season officially. It went from the 70's straight to the 30's . Waiting for the 50's before another campout. Would like to do some hiking. Trying not to get sick .

Probably going to be installing a "super simple electric" shore power in the trailer soon. Only need maybe 2 plugs. One at the rear and one near the front .

Well yesterday I decided to go winter camping. Was windy in the city but calm when I arrived here.
That is till about 3am, the wind has been ferocious rocking the trailer around . I hooked up to the truck to help stabilize things.
The window's are whistling it's so intense. So far the exhaust pipe is holding up outside for the wood stove.
About 50yrds away is a Buffalo sleeping on the ground. Just a normal night for him.
Gonna try some sleep before breakfast.
