Would love to attend a gathering. Where are those scheduled? I'm coming to Lake Georgetown next Thursday on it's first trial run. ojgrsoi@yahoo.com if you are nearby.

The trailer is somewhat heavy so I'll use my F250. :lol: Seriously, I have two jeeps but my wife is not fond of riding in either one. I would like to take a trip to AK pulling it with my DJ5F. But it needs work prior to that trip. ;)

Awaiting drip caps and a few other things. I'm getting a weight certificate and applying for title tomorrow. A few adjustments here and there and some trim touch up still to go. Also need a license plate light.

Thanks all. It looks great from 50 ft. ;)

Completed my TX title application today. Went smooth as silk. :D The trailer weight came in at exactly 1500 lbs. Not a lightweight but :shrug:

Here are a few shots of the final inside.

Thanks all. I didn't get to use the new trailer this trip. It was time to go and my punch list had a few critical items left to do that I couldn't get done. Repack bearings, install battery, install drip caps and adjust cabin door. Rain slowed progress but did let me check for leaks. Seams seem ok but I'll be glad to have the drip caps for insurance (and they are cute).

Shout out to Vintage Technologies for outstanding customer service. The long (44.5") caps arrived bent courtesy of the shipper. I emailed photos and had the replacements in about four days. :thumbsup:

Mark,
The Little Spark has turned out really good looking, love the paint scheme you chose. :thumbsup:
Sorry you didn't make the trip,, :( But, when you do get another chance to go.. you'll feel better about having those things done..
We've missed a couple camp trips now, no more worries here though, (Ready, when it's ready) So no plans being made until I know it's road worthy, campable and we can enjoy it.. Did make it to Dinosaur Valley, this past weekend, it was great. Meeting everyone there and seeing campers up close that I had only been able to see in pics on the forum.. we spend two days at the park, of course we had to rough it and stay in a hotel Saturday night.. that was really hard on us. :roll: ;)

I painted and installed the drip caps this week. They come white. I debated gray and black. Black won.
I also installed an additional drip rail on the rear to help divert rain from the rear easy up canopy. We'll see if that works.

I also finished the graphics on the front. I had planned to take the photos outside but its raining big here today. :pictures:

Was great to see the walk around.. very nicely done camper..
Still like those doors,, :)
When you put the camper together with one of your jeeps, will be an awesome package.. to see out on the road.. and in the wild...
