RE RUN 2 Neverland on Wheels

Postby Sidekick » Sun May 06, 2018 8:07 pm

All the materials are stacked and ready to be put together. I am still looking for a passenger door, with a screen door. Gonna try and up the ante with this build. I tried to add pictures but it said my jpegs were invalid files. Hmm New policy?

The topper sat all winter covering my gardening supplies- now time to bring it back to life - It came with a flat screen tv, wiring, and a bunch of led lights Going to try and re use them
Still missing a passenger door

Well, my stack of parts to begin building has gotten to the "do it, or don't" point. This will be my second attempt at perfection.

My other trailer sits in my side yard when not in use and many people stop to check it out. I was gone for a few months for a side trip to the Philippines and someone broke into it and stole my stereo and TV. Most asked question- "is it a pop top?"
My generic answer is this- there are 3 types of camping. 1. back packs, tents, and sleeping bags
2. A nice enclosed shelter with comfy bed and a place to store your stuff.
3. Taking a motor home with a shower, shitter, kitchen and a walk around area that resembles your home. To me..... that is not camping. But, I understand some women (and men) do not like to rough anything, they want all the comforts of home. I grew up in an old hunting cabin 20x20 with a hand pump and outdoor john. I do not mind the simpler life. But being 67 I enjoy a nice comfortable bed instead of cold ground. I have opted for a slide out galley from either side with a wrap around counter and cooking area.ala Boy scout galley/chuck box ( folds down into a compact package that can be carried to a remote spot and is self supporting). My first trailer was a dream to pull with my mini van and this second one will be a bit lighter but bigger. Not building a tank this time around. But I have gotten matching locks for all the hatches and doors. I don't want to be ripped off again.

I got the outside walls laid out and sized for the hatches and windows, need to figure out how much to give up for wheels. I forgot how much thinking this took the last time. But, I love a challenge and I enjoy the finished project even more. Kinda looks like I am on my own again or I am the black sheep because this is not your average tear drop project.

Looking for a power inlet for the beast. I was looking at a hatch to hide the power cord and thought it would be great to store the power cord in galley and just have a plug in somewhere on the trailer. What I found was 28.00 for a simple plug-no way!

I find I have about3 windows and 4 hatches left over from my layout. I will let them go for cheap if someone needs them

this is the general layout of the trailer without all the details I have a 30 gal water tank just behind the axle with a powered pump under toilet cabinet. A water tap on the drivers side and passengers side to attach sink and shower to. A large storage area at front of trailer at ceiling level for phone charger, laptop storage, and stereo. 4 speaker surround and 32 inch 4k smart tv. The toilet area is covered with frp to keep it sanitary and there is another hatch for the rear storage where the camping supplies are kept
