So got back in town and got to work.

Installed 20 corner braces on the framing to be on the safe side. Than got the the sides painted, mounted, trimmed to fit and remounted.

Hopefully tomorrow I will finish the top braces. And the roof.

Progress is being made. Unfortunately spring has arrived in Georgia...

Cut all the roof supports today afterwork, and sorted out the design for the tent rack mounting

So it was pouring rain so work outside was a no go tonight so, I spent a bit of time on another project for the trailer tonight.

Started with a Husky 12" waterproof box, volt meter, 12v outlet, twin usb port, and a on off switch.

Drilled a few holes and set the outlets in silicone. Once it sets it will be ready to mount on the outside wall of the trailer so I have power while I'm lounging. The case is big enough to fit a couple phones in side safe and sound while charging to.

I was going to get a small pelican case(pricey) but, found the husky case for $10 figured it was worth a shot

Got a break in the rain tonight so I got the front, wall cut, painted and the last of the framing supports painted as well. Tomorrow if I get a break in the weather I am hoping to get the roof painted and mounted up.

Did it come with the red head or was she an extra cost option?
