Did you re-purpose your spare tire carrier for the trailer?

Yup. Didn't even have to cut it up, I just unbolted it from the other piece and dropped it in the reciever.

These foam floor panels were $10 at Harbor Freight. Very Happy



This indoor/outdoor rug was $20 at Home Depot. Very Happy



This 3" air pad was $100 at Cabelas.  Sad



This warm and happy wife is priceless, though.

Well, the White Rim didn't happen. Ian broke his arm coming down Shafer and we had to pull out. Trailer did great, though!

Is that a little table I can see in the back of the trailer? Very cool setup.

Trailer looks good. I saw the bad news on RME. What did the orthopedist say?

There's lots more where that came from. I really need to go back.

It is, but it's not attached. I just shoved it behind the bungies to keep stuff from falling out while I pretended I was Ivan Stewart. Very Happy

I've got plans for a kitchenish thing to deploy off the side, still kinda chewing on it and deciding what shape that's going to take though.

He's at the doc now.

Start riding that bike of yours. I can tell you from experience now that on the White Rim at least, it's much more fun to experience it from a saddle than in a truck seat. You go a lot faster on a bike for one thing, if you're in shape enough...
