How do those black fenders and diamond plate hold up to gravel/rock chips ?

So far, so good.... but admittedly, I haven't been down long gravel roads with it alot. Mostly sand here and some gravel out west. Honestly though, any chips or etc. can be touched up with some glossy black spray paint if needed.

The new bed and table setup worked fabulous. Gives me more room with the bike on board and the table can swing in and not have to be removed.

The new bed is a very nice improvement. Using it this weekend. Nice weather for camping!

Looking good! :thumbsup:

Last year I camped south of Ocala, at Lake Panasoffkee, and got bit up by chiggers. I had about 25 bites on each leg that took about a month to go away, I still have a few scars from the pustules. I used deet spray on my shoes, socks and legs with long pants but still got ate up. You ever get them?

Oh yes. I have been bitten the same way. Not sure how to avoid it. Sometimes I get them, and sometimes not. Winter is the best time as most pests are a bit less active. Spring and summer can be bad.

Old stereo failed. Installed a new radio with touch screen. Getting ready for a trip out to Nebraska next week.

We'll be in Cozad Nebraska next week at the 2nd annual balloon festival. They have a nice campground at the city pool, right next to the airport.

I will be about 30 minutes east of Grand Island off I-80 near York. I will be headed that way Tuesday next week if all goes well. Going to take a few days working my way out there and dry camping along the way.

Spent some time doing some maintenance and a few minor repairs. Had to take out the AC and re level it. I have had some problems when trailer is not perfectly level with the condensation pan overflowing before draining. Turns out, I must have leveled the shelf during build without the trailer perfectly level. The shelf was off whereas the AC would have a slight tilt forward. In any case, shimmed the AC to slightly leaned back and retrimmed. AC and drain working perfectly now. Touch screen Radio is all working now with good antenna as well. In any case, all prepared for my dog and I to live in for about a Month while traveling.

Also organized the Etrac with a hanging basket for Lex's leash and etc..

This is the back of the AC with drain. A few folks have asked me how I did it. Need to vent the tube to prevent air lock and poor flow. Works nicely.

I put the Air Shroud back around the rear of the AC when I was done leveling properly.Image

I did sorta go crazy with stickers today. I had a bunch and all that white on the appliance stack needed some character. Couldn't help myself. Lol

Back from Nebraska. I really like this CTC. Everything worked well and was comfortable for the 3 weeks I was away from home.

It fits just about anywhere and I don't have to be concerned pulling into any place for gas or etc.. Tracks well.


Pic is in my son's driveway as I was getting ready to head back south.
